Printing Tiny Homes On The Move Today

Here are some photos from today. It was really exciting, there were 4 presses running the book (cover and inside pages) today, 15,000 copies the first run. They nailed the colors perfectly. (I realize this blog is all over the place, time-wise as well as subject-wise, but my life doesn't happen in an orderly fashion.)

To bad we can not have one of these new fangled prin'tin machines in the U.S.A. Globalism is good for the bottom line, eh? No one cares about country anymore. Pass the food stamps please. I will have a side order of S.N.A.P. with that, word.

Your life has been one of giving and teaching.

You deserve it.

Gosh how dare you Lloyd! Blah Blah Blah...look at those mistreated workers....

Geez people get off your high horse and get over it. If you were in Lloyd's position would you go bankrupt or support your family?? How is buying a "non-necessity" product from another country a bad thing. Yes it is great to buy or trade local for a lot of things (food, clothes, soap, etc) but seriously...

HighFidelityRob, thank you for addressing the snotty comment. well done.

for my part, I always wonder about folks who make those comments...
--- so of course they always buy local?
--- their paycheque --- of course they will not accept money fr any employer who gets investment fr "foreigners?
--- do they have a cell phone? -- where do they think that is manufactured?
---- clothes ... of course they raise their own sheep/spin their own wool or buy fr one who does???

etc...

in short

Exactly.

I mean we all get it. I'm pretty sure no one agrees with the "sweatshops." You have to look at the individual (company, person, etc) to see what they stand for. Obviously not everything can be made in America. And some things that are made in America are made by companies that treat their employees like crap. So saying IT MUST BE MADE IN AMERICA is pretty ignorant in my opinion.
I think it is pretty cool that Lloyd personally flew over there to oversee the initial round of copies. That he had the interest in meeting the people and checking out the business.

For example Walmart (easy target). Let us no forgot the reports about their neglect/oversight for some of their productions in China over the years. They are just now trying to clean up their image with their Made in America production standard goal.

yu pretty much summed it up.

I am not one of those who manage to live local, make my own this/that etc. I do admire those who do. However, the ones I have personally met (and they have known I admire their lifestyle choices),--- not once have I heard them speak like the Loud Mouth Shnook.
