Hi, everyone! It's a beautiful day here in the suburbs of Philly. And one day closer to my vacation, which makes it even more beautiful, ya know what I'm saying? Enjoy this beautiful edition and be forewarned; I have included videos for two catchy tunes that might get stuck in your head. Enjoy! Send your feedback directly to: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Hang-Ups The Pitch: Do you know that Andrew Hughes, the sales manager at IDPaspinline (asi/62088) sings aloud and dances at work at least 4 to 5 times an hour? Yesterday I tried to get him to teach everyone in the office how to Dougie (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iz1FsGSjgy8), but I don't know if he did or not. What I do know is that any gal would appreciate this supplier's new portable purse hanger, which will save many a purse from picking up gross, disgusting germs. Pricing starts at: 100; $4.98. For more information, or to ask Andrew what he's dancing to today, e-mail: email@example.com.

The Bottom Line: Give 'em the hook.
At Your Service The Pitch: Yesterday, we had special surprise guests on our radio show: Chris Blakeslee and Hank Harrell from Broder Bros. Co. (asi/42090). To listen to their great tips and insight on apparel, click here: www.asicentral.com/radio. Well, I just edited a great article on the bar and restaurant market (it's booming, probably due to all the people like my husband and me), and it just so happens that Broder has a new apron which would be perfect for these industries. It's made from 65% polyester/35% cotton twill and it's 24" long. It also comes in a variety of colors and pricing starts at: one for $9.96. You can see it (and the cute model wearing it) here: http://bit.ly/pmRR0U. The Bottom Line: Tie one on.
It's Time for Drugs The Pitch: It's important to take your medicine in a timely fashion. The Dose-Alert from the aptly named Dose-Alert Corporation (asi/77811) is a patented, user-friendly pill reminder device that fits directly on top of any prescription bottle or pill case. The digital timer counts up from the time it is activated until it reaches its alarm set point and then beeps loudly for 20 seconds. Hot targets include health care and seniors. Pricing starts at: 200; $3.57. Read all about it here: http://www.dose-alert.com/. The Bottom Line: Time's up.
Sweet Deal The Pitch: Everyone loves lollipops. There's even a song about them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rYoRaxgOE0. And it just so happens that Kencraft Candy (asi/64233) offers handcrafted lollipops with four-color imaging. These are fun for any industry and any occasion, especially birthdays and anniversaries, product launches, trade shows and wedding and birth announcements. Pricing starts at: 192; $2.68. Click here: http://64233.asisupplier.com/. The Bottom Line: That's tasty!
