Yesterday was Flag Day. Did you do anything patriotic? I'm singing "God Bless America" in my head right now like Kate Smith. Yup, just like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8QksTKRYS0&feature=related. Enjoy this edition and don't forget: Send your feedback directly to: email@example.com. It

The Joe Show: Spirit Products
In conjunction with Counselor's August Hot Issue, The Joe Show is currently featuring items in six different categories. In this special Hot Products edition of The Joe Show, Managing Editor Joe Haley shows off some of the latest spirit products – you know, those cool products at every high school sporting event – to hit the market.

Patriotic Picnic The Pitch: On the subject of flags, you can add a little red-white-and-blue to your picnics and events too. AGAS Flags, Banners & Caps (asi/30125) offers USA toothpick flags. Stick them in your burgers, your buns or anywhere else you want to stick them. You can even use them as a Barbie flag (you see, I'm always thinking). Pricing starts at: 100; $10. For more information, email the sales team at: firstname.lastname@example.org. The Bottom Line: Show us your pride.
Trash Talk The Pitch: Once more, our City of Brotherly Love is not feelin' the love from Travel & Leisure, which named Philly America's second dirtiest city (New Orleans was first). Noteworthy (asi/74360) offers the "Don't Be A Litterbug" coloring and activity book bent on teaching kids the importance of a clean America at an early age so that they wind up helping their city's standings in the cleanliness rankings (OK, they probably don't care about Travel & Leisure's rankings, but they do care about the environment overall). It's very cute and would be great for summer camps. Pricing starts at: 250; 80 cents. Click here: http://www.noteworthy.com/. The Bottom Line: No dirty business.
Who's Your Daddy? The Pitch: I laughed when I read yesterday that when the housekeeper told her son that he was Arnold's kid he simply said, "Cool." Yes, it is rather cool to know the family tree from which you fell. Minya International Corp. (asi/71370) has a great metal family tree photo frame, which holds six apple-shaped magnetized frames.This is a unique idea for new parents. Pricing starts at: 50; $17. Check it out: http://www.minyausa.com/. The Bottom Line: The apple doesn't fall far.
The Knot The Pitch: I'm shocked! Hugh Hefner and his fiancée have called off the wedding (and I was so looking forward to it). Yesterday, he tweeted sadly: "The wedding is off. Crystal has had a change of heart." Poor Hef. But there will be plenty of brides and grooms celebrating this summer and fall. The bridal business isn't going anywhere and you can get in on it. Wedding planners would eat these up as giveaways for newlyweds-to-be. The "Wedding Planner" guide wheels from Norco (asi/74240) offer valuable tips and time lines for planning a wedding from 16 months before, until, and after the honeymoon. Think also of dress shops, salons, wedding venues and more. Pricing starts at: 250; $1.30. You can see similar examples here: http://www.greentreemktg.com/. But for more info on the wedding version specifically, email Ellen the sales manager at: email@example.com. I'm sure she'll be happy to hear from you! The Bottom Line: Here comes the bride.
