Christmas 2011 — Birth of a New Traditions the holidays approach, the giant Asian factories are kicking into high gear to provide Americans with monstrous piles of cheaply produced goods — merchandise that has been produced at the expense of American labor. 

Make this year different.  Make it the year that Americans give the gift of genuine concern for other Americans. There is no longer an excuse that, at gift giving time, nothing can be found that is produced by American hands. Yes there is!

It’s time to think outside the box, people. Who says a gift needs to fit in a shirt box, wrapped in Chinese produced wrapping paper?
Everyone — yes EVERYONE gets their hair cut. How about gift certificates from your local American hair salon or barber?

Gym membership? It’s appropriate for all ages who are thinking about some health improvement.

Who wouldn’t appreciate getting their car detailed? Small, American owned detail shops and car washes would love to sell you a gift certificate or a book of gift certificates.

Are you one of those extravagant givers who think nothing of plonking down the Benjamines on a Chinese made flat-screen? Perhaps that grateful gift receiver would like his driveway sealed, or lawn mowed for the summer, or driveway plowed all winter, or games at the local golf course.

There are a bazillion owner-run restaurants — all offering gift certificates. And, if your intended isn’t the fancy eatery sort, what about a half dozen breakfasts at the local breakfast joint. Remember, folks this isn’t about big National chains — this is about supporting your home town Americans with their financial lives on the line to keep their doors open.

How many people couldn’t use an oil change for their car, truck or motorcycle, done at a shop run by the American working guy?

Thinking about a heartfelt gift for mom? Mom would LOVE the services of a local cleaning lady for a day.

My computer could use a tune-up, and I KNOW I can find some young guy who is struggling to get his repair business up and running.

OK, you were looking for something more personal. Local crafts people spin their own wool and knit them into scarves. They make jewelry, and pottery and beautiful wooden boxes.

Plan your holiday outings at local, owner operated restaurants and leave your server a nice tip. And, how about going out to see a play or ballet at your hometown theatre.

Musicians need love too, so find a venue showcasing local bands.

Honestly, people, do you REALLY need to buy another ten thousand Chinese lights for the house? When you buy a five dollar string of light, about fifty cents stays in the community. If you have those kinds of bucks to burn, leave the mailman, trash guy or babysitter a nice BIG tip.

You see, Christmas is no longer about draining American pockets so that China can build another glittering city. Christmas is now about caring about US, encouraging American small businesses to keep plugging away to follow their dreams. And, when we care about other Americans, we care about our communities, and the benefits come back to us in ways we couldn’t imagine. THIS is the new American Christmas tradition.

Forward this to everyone on your mailing list — post it on Facebook and to discussion groups — throw up a post on Craigslist in the Rants and Raves section in your city — send it to the editor of your local paper and radio stations, and TV news departments. This is a revolution of caring about each other, and isn’t that what Christmas is about?

InfoTube, Hillman and China. An Update

Thursday, May 26, 2011 posted by Tommi Crow

I am very happy to report that the public outcry about outsourcing American products, specifically Infotube and Infobox, to China has been encouraging, enlightening, motivating and best of all…it may be working to save jobs and keep American made products on the shelves.

As a result of your emails, calls, petitions, Facebook posts, etc. some strange things have happened.  We have been contacted by a US Senator, offering his assistance.  We have been interviewed on radio news and talk shows and our story has shown up in print across the country.   And, we still have our fingers crossed that we might receive a call from Diane Sawyer and ABC news about our story and products. 

If you haven’t told Diane and ABC what your favorite American products are, click this LINK and do so, today!  Please don’t forget to mention InfoTube and InfoBox!   

Perhaps, the most surprising outcome, so far, has been our two discussions with senior management at The Hillman Group.  Surprising, because it is happening at all.  Surprising, again, because we are each sharing information and I feel that everyone is sincere about wanting to reach a resolution. 

Rest assured that we won’t give up the fight until we hear that Crow Erickson will continue to sell Infotubes and InfoBoxes to our major d-i-y retail customers, like we have done for nearly two decades.

Sadly, during our meeting yesterday, Hillman management confirmed  that they have shipped some of the Chinese copycat product…identifible by its Yellow lid…to Home Depot, Lowes and Menards.   The retailers, in turn, hung it up in the sign department where the InfoTube and InfoBox used to proudly hang.  

Please ask for InfoTube and InfoBox by name at the store!!  Simply, refuse to purchase the Chinese Yellow Lid product.  You know what is at stake and your money is counted as your vote. 

A concerned consumer may have said it best in their reply to an email they received from the Hillman Group. 

“See, we American voters may truly be powerless, but we American consumers are not.  We are fed up watching big corporations, like yours, screw American businesses, and so if you think this lame email has calmed me, you are wrong.  I am just getting started.”  Cynn Chadwick

If you have a problem finding our products in the stores, you can purchase through our secure our website or through one of our valued, loyal internet vendors….many of whom took action on our behalf…even though by doing so, they face more sales competition.

Thank you again for your support, your comments and your encouragement.  If this little company can find a way to beat the competition over in communist China…then, so can other companies!  

Buy American and Support your Homeland!!!  We aren’t anti-chinese…we are just Pro-American!

For those of you who are following our struggle and have ask how you can help next…  

I think that continuing to send requests to ABC news (the direct link is below) would really be helpful for moving our negotiations forward and for highlighting this David and Goliath story.   

My recent experiences have proven that the tide of consumer awareness is shifting in our country.  The grass roots support for American business, workers and products is gaining momentum quickly and we all need to stay involved to turn our economy and future around.

I would encourage everyone to submit your favorite American made products to ABC News. 

http://abcnews.go.com/WN/MadeInAmerica/mailform?id=13599846

I hope to see a lot of love for InfoTube and InfoBox, of course, but I know that a lot of American businesses are fighting against the outsourcing tsunami, as well.   Each one of them would appreciate your support and there is no limit on the number of products you can submit.

Thank you again for all your help!!!!  Without you, we wouldn’t be here today.   Please mention us to ABC News…I would love to tell our story to Diane Sawyer :)

I was interviewed on Clear Channel News this morning about our Fight to Save our Company and American jobs from the chinese, copycat imports of InfoBox that are being brought into the US by The Hillman Group, distributors for Lowes, Home Depot and Menards.

After the radio interview, we received a call from Senator Richard Burr’s (R) office to inquire about our story.   The Senator’s office is looking into the matter to determine how they can help.   Thank you, Senator Burr!

Tommi Crow radio interview on Jameson show

I would like to say a BIG thank you to Jerri Jameson at WWNC News Radio 570 for having us on her show this morning.  

Thanks for following our story and for your support!  Please continue to sign our petition and send emails to Lowes, Home Depot and Menardsn telling them that InfoTube and InfoBox SHOULD NOT be replaced with chinese imports.

If you have been following our blog, then you know that The Hillman Group went to China and made a copy of our patented, US made InfoBox that is sold at retailers such as Lowes, Home Depot and Menards. 

Hillman planned, and spent a great deal of time and money to steal the InfoBox, replace it on the store shelves with it’s “Yellow”-lidded Chinese copycat.  The goal is to put another US company out of business and toss its workers to the wind. 

Well, we have another plan!  FIGHT BACK!!!

We are placing a BOUNTY and REWARD on the Yellow Chinese Hillman Box.  If you can find and purchase one of these boxes, please do immediately

  • Mail the china box to 1854A Hendersonville Rd #221 – Asheville, NC 28803, along with your receipt.
  • We will send you TWO (2) FREE, Original, 100% Made in the USA INFOBOXES with the Bright, Red Lids    
  • OR, TWO (2) FREE INFOTUBES, The Originals, Made in the USA  with the Bright, Red Caps to your Door at NO CHARGE!!!!  
  • Sign the InfoTube Care2 Petition to Save American Jobs, Companies and Products by CLICKING HERE
  • We are looking forward to returning ALL the Chinese boxes to the store ourselves!!!

Your voice and support matter to American workers, American home owners and America!!!  Thank you in advance for helping us fight!!!

PLEASE HELP INFOTUBE SAVE AMERICAN JOBS!!!

Wednesday, May 4, 2011 posted by Tommi Crow

Crow Erickson—a small, woman-owned company—is a quintessential American success story.  INFOTUBE® literature boxes were invented 23 years ago in my garage in Dallas, TX, to provide Realtors®, builders and homeowners with an affordable way to sell their homes.  

INFOTUBE® was an immediate success and quickly made its way into every major retail home improvement store across the country, where they have been sold for more than 20 years by retail giants like Lowe’s and Home Depot.  Over the years, our company has provided meaningful, competitively paid work for hundreds of disabled and handicapped Americans.

Today, our patented INFOTUBE® and INFOBOX® literature dispensers are used by millions of home sellers, Realtors® and home builders every day. You can find them in neighborhoods across America, very likely even your own.  

Recently, our largest distributor, The Hillman Group, without notice, replaced our patented products with Chinese replicas.  Their decision effectively puts our company out of business and, ironically, provides no cost savings for the consumer

WE NEED YOUR HELP! 

1.  Please copy and paste the following  letter or write your own: 

I am writing to request that your company take a stand to protect American jobs by continuing to carry successful American-made products, specifically INFOTUBE® and INFOBOX®. 

“Made in America” matters to me and so does supporting our U.S. economy. I do not support companies who outsource American jobs to China. 

Please continue to support all Americans including the American companies whose products you currently carry on your shelves. 

Sincerely,

(your name)

2.  Email it to the decision makers at Lowe’s, Home Depot and the Hillman Group.

4. For an up to the minute update on the status of this situation and the response of the retail giants, watch our blog, follow us on Twitter @Infotubes or Like our Facebook Page “InfoTube for Real Estate”.

Older Generation Lived “Green”.

Thursday, April 28, 2011 posted by Tommi Crow

We don’t know who wrote this piece about the environment and recycling, but we thought it was great.  Hope you find it enlightening, too!

    In the line at the store, the cashier told the older woman  that she should bring her own grocery bag because plastic bags weren’t good for the environment. 

The woman apologized to him and explained, “We didn’t have the green thing back in my day.”     

The clerk responded, “That’s our problem today.  The former generation did not care enough to save our environment.”

 He was right, that generation didn’t have the green thing in its day.     

Back then, they returned their milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles
to the store.  The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over.  So they really were  recycled.

But they didn’t have the green thing back in that customer’s day.

In her day, they walked up stairs, because they didn’t have an escalator in
every store and office building. They walked to the grocery store and didn’t
climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time they had to go two blocks.

But she was right. They didn’t have the green thing in her day.

Back then, they washed the baby’s diapers because they didn’t have the
throw-away kind. They dried clothes on a line, not in an energy gobbling machine burning up 220 volts – wind and solar power really did dry the clothes. Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing.

But that old lady is right, they didn’t have the green thing back in her
day.

Back then, they had one TV, or radio, in the house – not a TV in every room.
And the TV had a small screen the size of a hankerchief, not a screen the size
of the state of Montana . In the kitchen, they blended and stirred by hand
because they didn’t have electric machines to do everything for you.  When they packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, they used a wadded up
old newspaper to cushion it, not styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap.

Back then, they didn’t fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the
lawn. They used a push mower that ran on human power. They exercised by working so they didn’t need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity.

But she’s right, they didn’t have the green thing back then.

They drank from a fountain when they were thirsty instead of using a cup or
a plastic bottle every time they had a drink of water. They refilled their
writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and they replaced the razor
blades in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the
blade got dull.

But they didn’t have the green thing back then.

Back then, people took the streetcar or a bus and kids rode their bikes to
school or rode the school bus instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi
service.   

They had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to
power a dozen appliances. And they didn’t need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 2,000 miles out in space in order to find the
nearest pizza joint.

But isn’t it sad the current generation laments how wasteful the old folks
were just because they didn’t have the green thing back then? Author unknown

Insulation Upgrade Saves Energy and Money

Wednesday, January 19, 2011 posted by Tommi Crow

One of the easiest and most cost-effective energy upgrades you can make to your home is to improve the level of insulation in your attic. Upgraded attic insulation makes your home easier and less expensive to heat — and to cool next summer — and also makes for a more comfortable living environment.

Depending on what you have now, an insulation upgrade may be a do-it-yourself project, or it may be one that you want to leave to the pros. Some utility companies have programs in place with rebates or low-interest loans to help with energy upgrades, so you’ll want to check with them as well before you get started.

How much do you need?
How much insulation you need is always a good question. The easy answer is “as much as you can get,” but actually there’s a point where continuing to add more insulation really won’t pay you back much additional dividends.

For example, if you have R-19 in your attic, doubling it to R-38 will be a huge improvement. But doubling R-38 to R-76 wouldn’t be nearly as effective.

The R-values for new homes are set by the building codes, so that’s a good place to start. Many areas have established R-38 as a minimum for attics, and some colder areas have increased that to R-49. The further your insulation is below what the codes require, the more you’ll benefit from the upgrade.

What’s up there now?
How much you’ll benefit from upgrading your insulation depends on what’s in the attic now. So you’ll want to start with a trip into the attic to determine what kind of insulation you have, and also to measure its average depth. Here are the four most common types of attic insulation:

  • Loose-fill fiberglass: This is probably the most common, and will be fluffy strands or cubes of pink, white or yellow material. It has an average R-value of 2.5 per inch, so if your measurements show that you have about 6 inches of the stuff, you have an R-value of approximately 15.
  • Fiberglass batts: This is the same material, but it’s woven into thick mats instead of lying loose. It’s typically lying between the joists, but it may be on top of the joists as well. Batts have an average R-value of 3.2 per inch, so your same 6 inches would give you an R-value closer to 19.
  • Mineral wool: This is another loose fill material, although it’s also made into batts as well. It’s gray, and will appear thicker and more fibrous then fiberglass. The average R-value is about 2.8 per inch, so 6 inches would have an R-value of around 17.
  • Cellulose: This is essentially a recycled paper material, with other additives. It’s a light to medium gray, and is a loose fill but not as fluffy as fiberglass. It has a distinct “ground cardboard” look, and averages 3.7 per inch in R-value. Six inches of this material would give you an overall R-value of about 22.

What type of insulation to install?
What type of insulation you’ll want to use for the upgrade depends on a couple of different things, including the costs in your area, and whether you want to do the work yourself.

For attics, blown-in insulation works best. It’s easy to install, covers everything to a uniform depth, and is cost-effective. If you want to do the work yourself, both fiberglass and cellulose can be blown in using a blower that you can rent. Many home centers and other insulation retailers have the blowers available, and they’re sometimes loaned free of charge with a minimum insulation purchase.

Either of these types of insulation produces a lot of dust as they’re being blown, so you’ll want to wear a respirator, as well as some eye protection. For a complete list of safety gear, safety precautions and installation tips, refer to the manufacturer’s specific instructions.

The other alternative is fiberglass or mineral wool batts, which come in standard widths and thicknesses. These work best for attics that don’t have any insulation at all, since you can lay the batts between the joists. If there’s already batt insulation in place, you can install a second layer over the first. Use unfaced batts only, so that you don’t create a double vapor barrier and trap moisture between the layers of batts. Also, install the new layer perpendicular over the original layer, for better coverage over any gaps and cold spots.

Safety first!
You need to keep the insulation away from anything that produces heat, such as fireplace chimneys, wood stove flues and exhaust fans. Recessed light fixtures can only be covered if they’re specifically rated for that purpose. To keep the insulation away, use sheet metal to construct a dam, creating a 1- to 3-inch air space as per the insulation or fixture manufacturer’s recommendations.

It’s also important that you don’t do anything to block the ventilation in your attic, so you also need to install vent baffles to keep the insulation from sloughing down over soffit vents. These can be wood or cardboard, attached to the face of the rafters at each of the vents to keep the air flow clear.

Finally, to prevent moisture buildups that can damage wood framing and lead to mold growth — in addition to robbing R-value from that new insulation — be sure all exhaust fans are vented completely to the outside of the attic!

The program, called Giving House, turns any real estate transaction – residential sales, purchases or rentals, as well as commercial sales or leasing – into a philanthropic endeavor.  Giving House matches buyers and sellers with top real estate agents, who in turn donate a portion of their commissions to a designated non-profit organization.

The first organization to benefit from the Giving House program will be the Children’s Hospital Foundation at Westchester Medical Center, which supports Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, the advanced-care pediatric facility for New York’s Hudson Valley and Fairfield County, Connecticut.  Funds generated through Giving House real estate transactions will help fund the construction of a new in-patient “neighborhood” at the hospital, enabling it to care for more than 450 additional children each year.

Giving House is the brainchild of real estate agents Kerry Fedigan-Cid and her husband, Steve, veteran real estate agents with Prudential Douglas Elliman in New York City.  As Westchester County residents, the Cids were inspired to launch Giving House after their daughter, Olivia, was treated at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital for a fractured skull sustained after a tumble from her bicycle.  Once the Cids witnessed the expert pediatric care and attention shown to their daughter by the Children’s Hospital’s staff, the couple had the impetus to link their profession, real estate, with philanthropy, an effort they had often discussed.

“In 2009, a down year, total real estate sales volume in Westchester County still topped $3.27 billion.*  That’s a tremendous amount of money changing hands.  Why can’t a portion of this money go to a worthwhile organization, particularly one like Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center that provides such an important service to the community?” remarked Steve Cid, Co-Founder and Vice President, Giving House.  “The idea seemed so simple and right, and we were surprised no one was executing it.”

“Everyone is a winner in a Giving House transaction,” added Kerry Fedigan-Cid, Co-Founder and President, Giving House.  “Both the clients and agents feel a real sense of accomplishment, plus their efforts benefit the entire community.  Having a world-class children’s hospital in your backyard is a tremendous asset to local residents and one that makes our region a more desirable place to live.”

“We are grateful that the Cids have chosen our hospital as the inaugural beneficiary of the Giving House program,” commented Michael Gewitz, M.D., Physician-in-Chief, Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center. “And it’s only fitting that funds generated through real estate transactions will support the construction of our new inpatient ‘neighborhood,’ where hundreds of children will be treated for complex medical conditions each year.”

Added Fedigan-Cid: “It’s not an exaggeration to say that Giving House will help support one of the most important construction projects in our area – the new neighborhood at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center.”

For more information on the Giving House program, including how you can link with a Giving House agent or become one yourself, interested parties are encouraged to visit www.GivingHouse.org.

InfoTube.net would like to applaude the Giving House program, along with all of the real estate agent’s who make it possible…even in a very tough economy!  Good work!!!
