Holiday Shopping

Buy locally, and check to see where the things you are buying are made.
We did not do so for the longest time, and things surprised us.

It reminds me of the time 20 years ago (during the Savings and Loan debacle) when I was at a bank and I enquired about FDIC insurance, and the banker sort of laughed, saying that yeah, it was there.... but not like we would ever have a need for it...
or like the Ford salesman 12 years ago who laughed at my question about fuel efficiency; it was a different time.
