Child labor concerns

Below is some interesting information you can use regarding the country of origin for manufactured Items you have selected for purchase....You can determine which country the item came from by simply checking the BAR CODE. As you know, the whole world has become very concerned about Chinese manufactured goods. Consumers can actually differentiate which products are made in Canada, the Philippines, Taiwan, China or other country's simply by checking the bar code....
The first 3 digits of the barcode is the country of origin where the product is made.

Sample:
All barcodes that start with 690 to 695 are MADE IN CHINA. If it begins with 471 it is Made in Taiwan

Government and other related departments have neglected to inform the public about this simple informational product check, Therefore, it becomes necessary that we educate
ourselves, if we are to protect ourselves...

Increasingly,
Chinese manufacturers are learning that global consumers do not prefer products with the 'Made in China' label, and they are beginning to not show or print the country where the product originated.


However, armed with this important information you can now refer to the barcode..... Remember, if the first 3 digits are: 690-695 that indicate the product OR FOODSTUFFS are "Made in China"...... Below are some other BAR CODES for your enlightenment.
PRODUCT BARCODES
00 ~ 13 USA and-or CANADA (but watch out for Canada as much of China's fish are "packaged" in Canada to throw you off)
30 ~ 37 FRANCE

40 ~ 44 GERMANY

49 ~ JAPAN

50 ~ UK

57 ~ Denmark

64 ~ Finland

76 ~ Switzerland and-or Liechtenstein
471 ~ Taiwan (which is still China but with a different name)
480 ~ the Philippines
628 ~ Saudi-Arabia
629 ~ United Arab Emirates
690 ~ 695 CHINA
740 ~ 745 Central America

That is some good information. Especially with Christmas shopping being done (except by me...no time...yet) We've decided to do lots of homemade gifts this year ...got some cool ideas to try!

This was so neat Donetta that you popped over---because I had you on my mind early this morning...with intentions of visiting...but the office has been a buZZZy place today...since it's the 3rd!

Great stuff.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • "HOME IS WHERE YOUR STORY BEGINS"
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
