It was 1880 when Sam Lucchese Sr. and his brothers came to America. Although he was just 17 years old, the young Lucchese had a vision for a career in bootmaking, and just three years later, the Lucchese Boot Company was established in San Antonio, Texas. The family's dedication to its craft and to its customers kept the business alive, but it wasn't until the early 1960s that the founder's grandson and namesake decided to rethink the art of bootmaking.

2011 was a big year at Lodge, with the launch of two new cookware lines. Inviting a whole new audience to fall in love with Cast Iron, Lodge Elements combines premium Stainless Steel cookware with our traditional Cast Iron Skillet in one set. The Lodge Seasoned Steel line features Carbon Steel skillets that are American-made and seasoned at the Lodge foundry. We hope to advance the culinary lives of chefs and campers alike with these brutally tough pans.
With consumer demand now exceeding foundry capacity, Lodge has unveiled plans for a considerable expansion of their South Pittsburg plant. These will include new melting systems, sand systems, an additional molding line, and expanded seasoning lines. We are excited to be able to grow to new heights with our feet still firmly planted at home. Don't tell my wife, but she is getting the matching Blue Porcelain Skillet and Dutch Oven. Maybe she'll stop using our standard Lodge cast iron cookware off the chuckwagon as she does love the fine porcelain finish that will go wonderfully with her kitchen decor.
Number Two on the List:
A new FORD King Ranch Edition or Ford Mustang.
While other manufactures are barely back on their 4x4 feet and Nissan along with Toyota still decoding their big-pickup game plan, Ford is rolling out the most new F-150 has ever seen in its history: 4 engines, one transmission, significant chassis upgrades, and an instrument cluster that bares this truck's soul. To show serious intent, the F-150s even have new ignition keys that combine lock and remote-control functions in one convenient unit. Additionally, the smart part of Ford's comprehensive F-150 powertrain upgrade is that the Mustang shares two out of the four engines and a version of the new 6-speed automatic transmission and a very fuel efficient V6 engine also available.
