What Ever Happened To …

Hope you all had a Merry Christmas!

I am starting a blog here for the new year. Never done one of these in my life and up until a couple of years ago, never knew what one was. I guess that is part of not keeping up with the information highway or do they call it social media now?

I saw a commercial on TV tonight that really set me off a little. It was a Christmas commercial and it showed this family all gathered in the kitchen and the family was eating cookies and cinnamon rolls and other goodies taken out of an oven. Harmless enough right? Well it was a commercial of a well known company that sells these goodies in a tube. Here is the pitch, “that we all feel good when we are all together baking”, REALLY? Whats next? Picking up cookies from the store and calling it baking? When and how did we all come to this point of telling our kids that is baking, I thought. It’s not baking, it’s taking some dough like substance and heating it in an oven for the stated time! Those kids wouldn’t know how to bake something if it jumped up and bit them.

I feel blessed that we taught our daughters how to grow vegetables, raise animals, actually BAKE cookies, pies and bread from scratch, how those things we raised were harvested and butchered and processed into our freezers and pantries, and most importantly the REAL reason for celebrating this time of year.

“ For GOD so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish, but have eternal life.”

I am looking forward to this new year and all it brings. I also look forward to working with all of your upcoming projects and parts needs. We will keep you informed on new products and items that will be available through Bearing Supply Company.

Happy New Year and we will be seeing you soon.
