6TH ANNUAL MADE IN USA HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

5th ANNUAL NOBLE COUNTY GOLD GIFT GUIDE
This is one post we here at NCG look forward to each year.  It’s a time were we get to showcase some great product made by great companies, right here in the USA.  This season we have selected ten items that would make any guy beam with joy if he found them in his stocking or under the tree come Christmas morning.  To sweeten the pot even more, the fine gentlemen over at Owen & Fred have agreed to donate a YOU EARNED IT solid brass bottle opener to 3 readers who leave a comment.*  If you ask me, that beats any Black Friday deal I have seen thus far.  Links to the products and where to purchase are below.
*Discloser:  Readers will be picked at random and notified via e-mail*

YOU CAN GET ANYTHING YOU WANT…

In 1967, singer/songwriter Arlo Guthrie released an album titled ‘Alice’s Restaurant’. The main song on the album was a 18 minute, 34 second musical monologue, by the same name. It is a historical account of events that Arlo and his friend Richard Robins experienced Thanksgiving Day, 1965.

The song was an instant hit and its lyrics became a slogan for the 1960’s anti-war movement. Historically played on radio stations at 12 noon on Thanksgiving day, marking the day in which the events of the song took place. This song that was so popular in the 1960’s is very much relevant today.

He and his team create the sphere out of plaster and then glue the triangular strips, or ‘gore’ to the sphere, without any ripping or ripples.  His technique took 18+ months to perfect and over 100 globes were tossed into the scrap pile along the way.  To quote Peter, ‘…any mistake on the sphere is then multiplied by Pi…so its extremely important to get the sphere 100% correct, its the base of the entire project.’
