No Napkin Needed Inc, the Fort Worth, Texas based designer and manufacturer of MySleev, Americas first wear and wipe, not on mysleev product line.
This new innovative product line was inspired by everyday life experiences of its founders, George Butch Harmon and Adina Sweitzer. MySleev retail prices range from $ 8.99 to $ 16.99. Wholesale or large quantity pricing is available along with Licensing opportunities.
MySleev came to life as idea turned into a product in the same manner as many great, successful products, observing behavior, something that everyone does when they dont have a napkin. On a Sunday afternoon Butch and Adina were at his home in Ft. Worth watching a NASCAR race, Darrell Waldrip was doing commentary on the race and it was pretty clear he was getting more and more frustrated by all the trash on the track, particularly napkins that were ending up on car grills and making drivers reduce their speed.
So what are fans supposed to do if theyre eating nachos or a hamburger and dont have a napkin, asked Adina. This, joked Butch as he wiped his mouth across his forearm. Adina thought for a minute, reached into the laundry basket for a towel shed just folded, and wrapped it around her arm. And that was the beginning of MySleev and No Napkin Needed Inc.
George, a retired heavy equipment mechanic and Adina, a homemaker and freelance writer, being adventurous and fun loving people, documented their idea, listed the pros and cons and since the pros out weighted the cons decided to turn their idea into product targeted at the sporting goods and gift markets. Adina led with her contacts to generate a pattern to generate prototypes and start a small business that would use local businesses and later branch out to other states.
They begin the process of determining the market and positioning of their product. In focusing on the sports initiative they are targeting one of the hottest areas in American business, sports and healthy lifestyles. This product ties perfectly into First Lady Michelle Obamas initiative for health and fitness among Americas youth.
We got very excited when we begin to realize that we can help in improving the lifes of children and adults by promoting sporting activity and physical fitness with MySleev productssays Adina Sweitzer, Co-founder of No Napkins Needed, owner of MySleev.
The MySleev product line consists of MySleev for Kids, MySleev for Hunters, MySleev for Sports and MySleev for Physical Fitness.
The next step was finding a manufacturer; Adina made called day after day trying to find someone willing to take on manufacturing, only to learn sewing manufacturers were few in the United States today.
Adina discussed the situation with her business partner Butch and they both agreed that no matter how difficult it was absolutely essential that the products be made in the United States. They went to social media, Facebook and posted that they were looking for a sewing factory in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. They received three replies, Shannon Sharp-Carter, an employee at Goodwill Industries of East Texas, Inc., and friend of Adinas from high school suggested Dallas Lighthouse for the Blind. Shannon made some calls and helped us set up a meeting with Nancy Mayfield, who does their Product Development and their Sales Director, Doug Jones.
We are very excited about the opportunity to work with Butch and Adina, their passion for helping others and desire to keep the production here in the United States tells you exactly whats in their hearts. Says Nancy Mayfield.
With a handshake, we were all on board. Nancy and her team at Dallas Lighthouse made our prototype and samples and we made certain all the fabric ordered for MySleev would be Made in the USA. Today, MySleev is on the arms of kids, athletes, sports fans and hunters across America. All because of napkins flying around the NASCAR track in Martinsville.
Media hysteria and public ignorance have driven his campaign. This flim-flam man is selling “hope” and “hot air” and a thousand promises no one could possibly deliver. We’re supposed to be electing a President – not the next favorite singer for “American Idol”. The media has proven very reluctant to grill Obama the way they do all the other candidates. Why? Hillary looks great by comparison. She has workable solutions not just hope and cheers about change. Obama is like a pied piper and we know how that tale turned out.

HarpMortgageLender.com is a rapidly growing website focused on the Obama Administrations Home Affordability Refinance Program (HARP) to help underwater homeowners lower their mortgage payment and interest rate.
Homeowners that have negative equity and higher than average interest rates have proven to be more likely to default. In an effort to stabilize U.S. home prices and decrease foreclosures, HARP 2.0 is designed to help borrowers that are upside down on their mortgage refinance into a traditional loan at a lower interest rate.
Recent changes to the HARP Program removed the maximum percentage amount that a property can have an underwater mortgage. Prior to December 1, 2011, the maximum amount that a property could be underwater was 125% of the loan balance.
This means that if a property is valued at $ 100,000, the maximum that the mortgage being refinanced would be $ 125,000 or 125% of $ 100,000. This would also be referred to as 125% LTV or loan-to-value.
HarpMortgageLender.com is a comprehensive online resource for underwater homeowners who are looking for non-biased information about their options to stay and refinance or consider a short sale.
The company is led by industry leader Raymond Bartreau, and the website was created to inform and match homeowners with approved HARP lenders. The genius behind the website is that homeowners can go and learn more about the HARP the loan program, its requirements, and whether it seems like a good fit or not before having to speak to a mortgage professional.
This additional protection from the pressure of having a loan facilitator presenting the information should really help encourage homeowners to start exploring some of the new government loans created to help borrowers reclaim their financial stability after the housing crash.
The HARP website has been around just long enough to start generating some serious recognition and traffic. The extensive archives of the site expand past 2500 pages and answer virtually any question a visiting borrower or homeowner could ask.
Whats the catch?
Well, the catch is that you have to go to the website, jokes a visiting homeowner.
The information can help you figure out if youre in a position to refinance out of your existing mortgage and into one of the new mortgage programs but you actually have to take the time to do some reading.
Many visitors have said to like the informative approach better than speaking directly to a mortgage professional. Without the added pressure of feeling like youre being sold or pushed into a loan program, you can take your time to read about and understand the various options.
If you do have questions, you know that there are lines of professionals waiting to help you out in hopes of earning your business, so its really a win/win.
If you know of someone interested in either leaning more about HARP mortgage loans or even perhaps a company trying to find ways to help homeowners learn more about the HARP mortgage loans, recommend them to HarpMortgageLender.com or have them call 800-811-1402 for more information.

The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center is the leading advocate for US homeowners stuck in a toxic Chinese drywall home, especially in Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, and Virginia. Symptoms of toxic Chinese drywall include constant air conditioning system failures, that include black, AC coils, bloody noses, or constant upper respiratory issues among homeowners, or their families, and copper electrical wires, that also turn black. Because toxic Chinese drywall was frequently intermixed with US made drywall, the potential number of homes in Florida, or the US South explode into potentially 100,000+. The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center says, “Our biggest worry is there has been no meaningful federal response for the tens of thousands of homeowners, stuck with toxic Chinese drywall in Florida, and the US Southeast. As a result of no leadership, the problem is getting worse, we have the atmospherics of the Wild West in Florida, and Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, and Virginia, when it comes to people either unknowingly buying a toxic Chinese drywall home foreclosure, As Is, from taxpayer funded Fannie Mae, or flippers, and or major homebuilders attempting to remediate toxic Chinese drywall homes-on the cheap. Someone has to take charge of this mess. We are now demanding President Obama publicly address the toxic Chinese drywall disaster in Florida, and get the Environmental Protection Agency involved right now. We are also demanding that President Obama by executive order, establish an immediate moratorium on the resale of toxic Chinese drywall foreclosures, until there are very precise disclosures, and a federally approved remediation protocol.” http://ChineseDrywallComplaintCenter.Com
For attribution purposes according to the San Francisco Chronicle on November 2nd 2011, “On the topic of real estate deals, real estate investments, or real estate bargains, there are warning signs for real estate investors, or even potential home buyers in Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Southeast Texas, and even Virginia to be on the lookout for toxic Chinese drywall foreclosures. Banks, and Fannie Mae are selling these toxic homes, or condominiums foreclosures with the only disclosure being As Is”
The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center says, Because of no leadership from the Obama Administration, there currently are no rules with respect to cleaning up, or remediations involving toxic Chinese drywall homes, taxpayer funded Fannie Mae continues to sell toxic Chinese drywall foreclosures, with As Is being the only disclosure, and we have no health information related to long term exposure to toxic Chinese drywall. Even worse the government of China has done zero to step in, and assist US homeowners stuck in a toxic home, that for all intents and purposes was destroyed by a building product made in their country, and or made in a factory owned by the Chinese government.” The group says, “The toxic Chinese drywall disaster in Florida, and other states in the extreme Southeast is getting worse, because no one is in charge. Something has to change, and we believe President Obama’s failure to lead on something as vital as the toxic Chinese drywall disaster, and innocent homeowners, and their children-stuck in toxic Chinese made drywall hell is a legitimate issue all US citizens should be aware of. How does a sitting US President not show up to a mess like this? By not showing up, President Obama, and various federal agencies have allowed this disaster to simply get worse. Don’t think this is a disaster? Go to any metro area in Florida, including Cape Coral, Miami, or Tampa. http://ChineseDrywallComplaintCenter.Com
