New on DVD today:
Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Big Happy Family – The latest in the Tyler Perry franchise where Perry plays Madea and Madea tries to knock some sense into her kids whose lives are all out of control.

Our Movie Maven Ileana’s C.L.I.P. of the Week is The Perfect Host – A con man makes his way into a home to hide out from the law. Problem is, the homeowner is a psychopath played by David Hyde Pierce.
Does it seem like every product you buy is made overseas? Well, there are still plenty of things that are made right here in the good old U.S. of A.
1. Bowling Balls – There are half the number of bowling alleys in the U.S. that there were in the 60′s, and several makers did move overseas, but Ebonite and Hammer bowling balls are still made in Hopkinsville, Kentucky.
2. Sparklers – Many are made in China, but Diamond Sparkler in Youngstown, Ohio refuses to close. They say that anything we use to celebrate the 4th of July should be made in the U.S.
3. Socks – Fort Payne, Alabama used to be known as the Sock Capital of the World and while they do make a lot of socks, it’s not as many as they used to make.
4. Ironing Boards – HPI Seymour of Indiana manufactures 720 boards an hour and they sell them at Walmart and Target.
Your Gourmet Guess answer: Walleye. Minnesota consumes more walleye per capita than any other state in the U.S. Makes sense as it is our official state fish.
