Well, January 14 is upon us. You know what that means – National Dress Up Your Pet Day! Can you believe it? Doesn’t it feel like the last Dress Up Your Pet Day just happened? The months really do fly by!

This year is extra special, too, as it’s the fifth anniversary of the holiday, which (for the uninitiated) was started by an animal behaviorist as a way for people to celebrate and enjoy their pets.

Fort Wayne-based Tippmann Sports is the leading manufacturer of paintball markers and accessories in the world. Entering into the paintball business in 1986 was a smart move for the company, as the emerging fad quickly transformed into a competitive, world-renowned sport.

Welcome to the first in what is sure to be a string of 'Too Much Information'-themed posts pertaining to the life of yours truly.

Lately, I've been noticing a lot of my personal belongings are falling apart, or generally coming to the end of their life cycles. And of course, I want the replacement items I buy to be Made in America. So for the next few 'Made in Your City' features, you'll learn more about me, and the things my apartment and I am lacking.

In roughly 30 hours, children up and down the east coast of the United States will begin the much-beloved tradition of trick-or-treating. Their counterparts in the other time zones will follow suit not long after.

It's likely too late to influence your Halloween purchases for 2013, but the video below provides a timely reminder of how buying Made in the U.S.A. for any holiday supports our fellow Americans.

Though its origin stories are hazy (by which we mean non-existent), October 18 has been designated National No Beard Day.

We imagine many of you are busy gearing up for this occasion, but when you step away from preparing the traditional No Beard Day holiday meal, take a moment to purchase a high-quality American-made razor. It'll be the last razor you'll ever need to purchase!

Around this time every year, the internet fills up with images of carved pumpkins. Some are quite elaborate, and others are just your standard jack-o-lantern, but one thing is for certain: This is not an activity just for children.

A little manufactured fun arrived at our office this week.

The Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) is now a proud owner of an American-made popcorn machine.

Our friends at Paragon International helped us prepare for another movie screening at our DC headquarters (more on that later).
