Today we toured the Spangler Candy Company. It was very encouraging to hear that this company is under expansion in the economy. They have a very, very low employee turnover rate. They employ 400 people. They are the second largest employer in Bryan, Ohio. They did set up a factory in Mexico in order to stay competitive in the world market. Not one single person from this company lost a job.
Here's a factoid. The next time you buy a bag of those orange circus peanuts, take a look at the top. Every 9th peanut has "Spangler" stamped into it. Also, do you know what flavoring is used in Circus Peanuts? I think we will make this a giveaway. I will send a bar of our handmade soap to the first person who can tell me the flavor of the orange Circus Peanuts. Just post the answer in the comments section of this blog. No emails - just the comments section.
Word of the day:
Friday of the Twenty-fifth week in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : Our Lady of Mercy
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 9:18-22.
Once when Jesus was praying in solitude, and the disciples were with him, he asked them, "Who do the crowds say that I am?" They said in reply, "John the Baptist; others, Elijah; still others, 'One of the ancient prophets has arisen.'" Then he said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Peter said in reply, "The Messiah of God." He rebuked them and directed them not to tell this to anyone. He said, "The Son of Man must suffer greatly and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed and on the third day be raised."
