A recent e-zine by Industrial Safety Hygiene News discusses one of my favorite topics. Yours truly was featured in the interview section. This feature was sponsored by the IGA (The International Glove Association).
Those that know me, know I hate smoke and mirrors and gimmick gloves but these mechanics gloves not only light up your work areas, they have the fit, feel, and function that a multi-task mechanics glove should.
By the way, I think their bean-counters waved their wand over on these gloves because they are affordable enough to buy a few pairs for the price of one pair of competitive brands.
You may recall my announcement back in June that we are implementing a biodegradable packaging initiative.
I am also preparing another announcement to coincide with our green efforts. However, I want to encourage each of you interested in promoting a safer environment to join the virtual march to Stop Global Warming.
Join the march and become part of the movement to demand our leaders freeze and reduce carbon dioxide emissions now. We are all contributors to global warming and we need to be part of the solution.

Two years has passed since a sports marketing group appeared on my door step with some primitive but functional gloves that made a lot of noise when you clapped your hands together. They were very excited about their invention but disenchanted by the failure by a few glove manufacturers making promises to develop a stadium ready glove.
Typically, I was enlightened by their enthusiasm and excited about the concept.
In time for the baseball playoffs, I managed to tweak “their” concept using hardened baseball bat wood glued to a weight-lifting glove to the gloves they market (and we make) today. (Enlarge image or go to their web site below)
Mission accomplished: a low cost; universal size; comfortable glove that can make more noise than anyone can imagine (or bear to listen to) and intimidate the heck out of opponents on the field or in a stadium.
If you need some noise from your fans, contact the guys at Home Team Handz. Just don’t tell them the Glove Guru sent you. They’re pretty busy.
Last week, we made our annual expedition to the IRCE Conference in Boston (Internet Retailer Conference and Expo) to learn about all the latest and newest tools to enhance our web site and shopping cart. After all, Gloves-Online, is the oldest and largest glove retailer on the Internet. It is always fun to meet and mingle with all the global internet czars and we hope that what we learned will make your glove shopping experience easier and rewarding.
Our major reward this year was finding ways to embed glove videos without overloading your connection (bandwidth) to our web site.
That’s me standing outside the networking dinner on cold June evening in Boston. The food (and drinks) was great and we met some really neat internet gurus.
