I used to ski with a cat named Don Thomson. He flew helicopters in Vietnam. He also is one of the 1st couple of people to BBF. I beleive he is the first to do front to backs and backs to fronts. He was usually first or second to do all the first barefoot tricks. He skied back in the day at the Gardens. He is truely an inspiration to be around. He sends me stuff all the time and I usually just forward it to the list! Here is something I wanted everybody to get. Pretty cool!

I checked this out on WWW.TRUTHORFICTION.COM and it's all true. My hat's off to Sears. I'm going to be buying at Sears this Christmas. How about you ? DON T.







I know I needed this reminder since Sears isn't always my first choice.
Amazing, when you think of how long the war has lasted and they haven't
withdrawn from their commitment. Could we each buy at least one thing at
Sears this year ?


How does Sears treat its employees who are called up for military duty? By
law, they are required to hold their jobs open and available, but nothing
more. Usually, people take a big pay cut and lose benefits as a result of
being called up.


Sears is voluntarily paying the difference in salaries and maintaining all
benefits, including medical insurance and bonus programs, for all called up
reservist employees for up to two years of active duty.


I submit that Sears is an exemplary corporate citizen and should be
recognized for its contribution. I suggest we all shop at Sears, and be sure
to find a manager to tell them why we are there so the company gets the
positive reinforcement it well deserves.


Pass it on.


The person who started this email chain decided to check this before sending
it forward. They sent the following e-mail to the Sears Customer Service
Department:


"I received this e-mail and I would like to know if it is true. If it is, the
Internet may have just become one very good source of advertisement for your
company. I know I would go out of my way to buy products from Sears instead
of another store for a like item, even if it's cheaper at that store."


This is their answer to my e-mail:


"Dear Customer:


Thank you for contacting Sears. The information is factual. We appreciate
your positive feedback.


Sears regards service to our country as one of greatest sacrifices our young
men and women can make. We are happy to do our part to lessen the burden
they bear at this time."

Please pass this on to all your friends. Sears needs to be recognized for
this outstanding contribution and we need to show them as Americans, we do
appreciate what they are doing for our military!!!

Just bought a new fridge from Sears! Good on them! Stuff like this helps to hear when there so many stories of people getting scammed and such.

I commend them on their treatment of servicemen. (I hope this thing is true)

craftsman power tools made in the US?

Don't get me started, but I had a ridiculous, stupid, idiotic, dumb, assenine, confounded experience at the local Great Indoors (sears) store... They literally let me walk away after taking my order for 4k worth of stuff because of a shipping/logistics issue... I was mr nice guy and gave them every opportunity to put a thinker on the problem and push the order thru before I am forced to cancel the order and they just couldn't find it in themselves... I chalk it up to the old saying.. "It's all about people".
