Marketed in the U.S. but Made in China

I just remembered to post about a fun and funny experience that I had earlier this month. Debbie, my father, mother, and I attended the Tell Tool 40th anniversary party that was held at the New England Air Museum. The restored air museum is a jewel and it was a lot of fun to tour it. I highly recommend it and it is great for kids. I much prefer industrial and historical museums to art museums, and the air museum located near Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Connecticut, is awesome.

Tell Tool is a customer and their employees are good friends of Horst Engineering. Those who attended, including employees, families, and guests of Tell, were presented with a special commemorative Seth Thomas clock. It seemed that the idea was to honor the 40th anniversary of Tell, a manufacturer of aerospace products, by gifting a clock from “America’s Oldest Clockmaker.” However, Tell’s leadership was dismayed when they were surprised to learn about where the clock had been manufactured. Despite the clock’s packaging statement about how U.S. based Seth Thomas has been making clocks for 200 years, the clock itself was clearly marked: “Made in China.”

@bentwaterbrewing #bentwaterbrewing #pulpfiction #lynnlynnthecityofsin Overnight with @boyscoutsofamerica Troop 25 at the 4-H Camp in Pomfret. The toboggan run was hairy! I just watched. #boyscouts That moment when @trailrunningmom discovered that our longtime #Christmas Tree 🌲 supplier is a regular student in her #yoga class. They previously hadn’t recognized each other when not wearing #yogini gear. It was great to hear how our farmer has improved her strength and flexibility since she took over the business from her late husband. Note: preparing our menorah for #hannukah takes less work than this! Lovely December day for #Cyclocross at Goddard Park. @nbx_bikes #nbxcx @vittoriaseries #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad @horsteng #crossspikes #rhodeisland Lovely day for more than 130 #BoltonLandTrust members and friends at the annual Walk of #Thanksgiving #bolton #connecticut 🌲 #blackfriday didn’t start so badly! Great day at the #manchesterroadrace @shenipsitstriders #shenipsitstriders #silkcitystriders #teamhorstsports #thanksgiving 🏃🏻 If I always had the option to commute by train 🚂, I would take it. #multitasking 1h45m each way if uninterrupted productivity and NO driving. I even squeezed in a lap of #centralpark with Tim. 🏃🏻#manhattan #newyork Fir @john.meyerle because I neglected to post earlier: @supercross_cup This video is the Cat 4/5 Men. Great start for @the_ccap boys Nick and Johnny. #supercrosscx #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #horstengineering #crossspikes @horsteng #cyclocross #lifedeathcyclocross
