With the fourth of July here in a few days, I have come up with several products to make your day a blast! Also, what better way to celebrate Independence than to celebrate with products that are made right here in the USA!
Made in the USA
Cree LED Bulb
Cree, manufactures everything from the ground up on the LED bulbs (including their LED chips) at their headquarters in Durham, North Carolina. Keeping the bulb design and manufacturing together in the U.S. allows Cree to deliver products that meet actual consumer demand fast and affordably, creating a strong advantage over competitors.
The Cree LED Bulb looks and lights like a traditional incandescent bulb, but works better, lasts 25 times longer and saves you up to $226 per bulb over its product lifetime. In less than a year after being the first to break the $10 barrier for an LED bulb at The Home Depot, the Cree LED Bulb became the best-selling LED bulb in the U.S. As a result, Cree bulbs have become renowned for their energy efficiency, life expectancy and leading 10-year warranty.
Cree’s consumer product offerings range from standard A-type LED bulbs, including 60W and 100W replacements soft bulbs, to the most recently announced 3-Way LED bulb. Additionally, Cree offers Flood/Spot bulbs which use 80%+ less energy than other less-efficeint, low-quality bulbs on the market.

Celebrate The 4th!
Hangtime, this popular FREE social event discovery app, has gathered data from over 32 million events, and founder Karl Jacob put together some tips to help you organize an event with the best response rate:
- DO keep your title short and sweet – save the in-depth details for the event description
- 4th vs. fourth – the number is associated with important dates to remember, but the text is associated with history and ceremony (yawn!) – are you throwing a party or teaching a history class? – DON’T bore your friends with the ‘fourth’.
- DON’T pile on the food terms – Truth is, food items all blur together, so please do not drown your event page with a list of menu items that we already know are going to be served
- DO include special drinks – Whether it’s an “Uncle Sam-tini”, “The All-American” or a “Berry Sangria Spritzer”, people LOVE their holiday-themed cocktails, so list ‘em!
- DO mention there will be TVs playing the big sports game of the day – even if you despise sports, letting your friends know that you’ll be showing the big game will give your event a huge advantage!

Hangover Sucks – And just incase you celebrate a little too hard…
Hangover Sucks has the perfect, all natural remedy after a weekend of being star spangled hammered. Hangover Sucks is a natural sucking candy made to alleviate hangover symptoms like nausea and dry mouth. Developed by a nurse, Hangover Sucks combines soothing flavors (Ginger, Raspberry and Lime) with just the right vitamins to replenish those you lose after a night (or day) of drinking – like vitamin C, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate, B6, B12, and others – to help with headaches, upset stomach, dry mouth, and mild dehydration. Natural sugars help metabolize the alcohol in your system more quickly and offer a boost of energy as you recuperate.
