100 Great Things About America

In light of the recent holiday, I found this article to be fitting. CNN Money came up with the list, many of which I can say I fully agree with and some that seem totally random. Click here to view the full article and list.

Here are a few of my favorites:

8. Steve Jobs
The brain behind the iPhone, iPad, and iEverything finally managed to get the Beatles onto iTunes. What can’t this guy do?

16.  Duct tape
Everyone’s first fix-it choice. Just ask MacGyver. Or MacGruber.
(Especially the neon and tie dye colors!)

19. Carlos Santana
If you didn’t already have “Oye Como Va” in your head, you will now.
– I’m not entirely sure how this one fits in, but the song is now stuck in my head.

26. Ben & Jerry’s
The only thing better than its AmeriCone Dream is the “flavor graveyard” on its website.
– Back home in CT we had a Ben & Jerry’s store and all my friends worked there so I always got free Oatmeal Cookie Chuck. Man, I miss it.

32. Poland Spring
Better than Perrier.
– Why don’t they sell this in Texas?

49. James Taylor
Even if you’re not crazy about his voice, a great American songwriter.
– I used to babysit for his kids when he would play at Tanglewood back in Lenox, MA.

59. Clif Bars
The iconic energy bar. Yes, it’s come to this
.

69. Michelle Obama
A formidable presence who’s brought her own form of glam to the White House.
– Need I say more?

82. Blogging
We’re all writers now. Uh-oh …
– Ironic…

93. Vineyard Vines, Ralph Lauren, J.McLaughlin
Preppy clothing brands outfitting Nantucket-goers and wannabes year-round. –
Duh!
