On Mother's Day, my husband and kids brought
me a gourmet breakfast in bed: Special K with bananas and coffee.
It's what I asked for. Usually, I get Pop Tarts, but this
year I chose to go healthy. Hope your day went according to plan
too! Enjoy this edition and send your feedback directly to: firstname.lastname@example.org. It
may be published in a future issue of Advantages magazine.

Pump You Up The Pitch: My
14-year-old, Andrew, lifts weights now. He flexes in the mirror and says, "Everybody
wants a piece of the Andy candy." Similarly delusional "muscle
men" might like item
#309 from ETS Express (asi/51197): a
glass mug with a muscle-shaped
handle, which holds almost 21 ounces. Think about your fitness club clients,
wrestling teams, weightlifting clubs and anyone who wants to strong-arm the
competition. It's on sale at: Qty.-144; list
price-$4.89; price code-R. Web address: www.etsexpress.com.
Expires 5/31/08. The Bottom Line: Muscle power.
Shhhhhhh The Pitch: This week,
I can't tell you who got kicked off Dancing
with the Stars, because last week, I got in trouble from Sandy, who TiVo's
it and watches it on Wednesday nights. So, I am keeping it secret (of course, you
can find it all over the Internet). However, I can't keep this special deal
secret: Item #R100 from Express Pens/Express Time Source (asi/53411) is
on sale at EQP. It's a credit-card-sized case with mints
on one side and toothpicks on the other. They're called "Lindermints." Get
it? Because the company management's last name is Linderman. Simply perfect
for your restaurant clients. Web address: www.expresspens.com. Expires
6/30/08. The Bottom Line: Minty fresh.
We're All on Drugs The Pitch: Half
of us are on prescription meds, according to a study by Medco Health Solutions
Inc. Yes, half of all insured Americans are on drugs to manage chronic
conditions like high blood pressure and cholesterol, so why not take advantage
of savings on item #GEM59 from Gemini Industries
Inc. (asi/56100)? It's
a pill-shaped pill box on a key holder, on sale at: Qty.-200;
list price-59 cents; price code-R. Web address: www.geminiindustries.com.
Expires 6/30/08. The Bottom Line: Take two and call me in the morning.
Count on Me The Pitch: You
can always count on Dad. Dads would appreciate something to count on too,
so why not give them a calculator to add up all the money they spend on the
kids? (You know, money doesn't grow on
trees.) Father's Day is June 15. Premier Mart Inc. (asi/79530) has
sales pricing on item #EC-800: an eight-digit, solar-powered calculator/business
card holder with pen. Qty.-200; list price-$3.25; price code-R.
Web address: www.premiermart.com.
Expires 5/31/08. The Bottom Line: It all adds up.
I Believe The Pitch:
The Vatican's chief astronomer says it's
OK for Catholics to believe in aliens and I say, "Right on!" … After
all, I cried through ET, the Extraterrestrial four times, totally
believing aliens and humans could be friends ("I'll be right
here"). Wow, that's the second week in a row that I mentioned
ET. Weird. Anyway, who knows what's really out there in the big,
wide universe? The Book Co. (asi/41010) helps
explain part of it in a hardcover version of the Encyclopedia of Space (item
#0792273192). It covers the planets, telescopes, manned space flight, satellites
and the origin of the universe. It's a unique idea for planetariums,
astronomy clubs and anyone whose service is out of this world. Pricing
starts at: Qty.-50; list price-$36.95; price
address: www.thebookco.com. The Bottom Line: To the moon (and then some).
