I see. You really should pay more attention to the Beatles: they almost single-handedly lifted rock and roll from its roots in blues and teenage rebellion into an art form. However, "All You Need Is Love" is definitely not their best song.

I find it odd that this song would be used in a commercial, as it seems counterproductive to the BUY THIS NOW! message of most advertisements. Do you know what the advertisers were trying to sell?

My Father gave me a Beatles CD when I was about 15. At the time I was listening to much heavier stuff and probably didn't give it much of a chance. Regarding the commercial, I don't recall the product, but I've seen the commercial a few times now and will probably see it again.

In 1964, the Beatles were the heavier stuff. Really, you should give them a chance; three more tremendously talented people never played with John Lennon. Grin

As for the commercial, if you have seen it several times and still don't know what they're selling, the advertisers have failed. It seems too many of them focus on getting people to pay attention--but that's only the first step. An effective advertisement will also get people to remember the product and go buy it.

Ah. I see. Well, I stand by my comments that the advert is entirely ineffective. The show during which it was recorded, however, is one of my favourites (we use DVR so we don't watch any commercials any more).

...how can one sew without a pattern?

I still use them....and am amazed how much they charge for a piece of transparent paper.

I had read somewhere that the companies making patterns thought about ending the practice until the current economic downturn where people reverted to sewing their own clothes....

Downturn, shmownturn. Ask any woman (mothers, aunts, sisters, etc) who sews her own clothes (or, at least, a proportion of them) why she does it. Being able to have a garment in the fabric and color one wants, not what the chainstore or boutique offers is one reason; another, very important one, is being able to have clothes that FIT PROPERLY. Either you make it yourself, or get a tailor or seamstress to make it for you.

My own mother was one of these, with a disproportionate body, and an eye for style: narrow shoulders, small waist, long in the body, flared out below the hips. Off-the-rack clothes such as women's suits or "good" dresses were out of the question. So, for many years, she made her own, and always looked magnificent in whatever she made.

If more women sewed their own clothes, there would be less criticisms by Staci London, host of What Not to Wear.

I do emphatize with women who go into the finest boutiques in NYC and can't find absolutely nothing to wear.

It's been so long since I actually interacted with 9th graders on a daily basis--well, since I was in 9th Grade myself--that I'd kinda forgotten about this.  Now that I think about it, I never really noticed how we smelled back then.  I guess it's consistent with that adage "Pigs don't know that pigs stink." laugh

Ahhh!  So you have a room full of 9th grade boys!
laugh Whoever can convince ninth grade boys that it's cool to take a shower every day will become my personal hero.
It's been so long since I actually interacted with 9th graders on a daily basis--well, since I was in 9th Grade myself--that I'd kinda forgotten about this.  Now that I think about it, I never really noticed how we smelled back then.  I guess it's consistent with that adage "Pigs don't know that pigs stink." laugh

My high school had uniforms, and it was hardly uncommon to see white collared or golf shirts ending up all shades of pale yellow and green.  Tongue

The funny thing is that its not just the boys. There are some girls in my classes that I can't stand to close to when helping them with their math because the smell is so unpleasant.

It's like that for me sometimes riding a city bus.

Ohhhhh.....city buses are horrific in Detroit.  I don't think they ever get cleaned.

I used to ride the bus downtown to attend University.  I would never put my head back to touch the seat.  It was always so greasy...and the windows so grimy that you couldn't even see out of them.

The only time I've ever seen the Portland, Oregon, buses look like that is during the few days after a winter snowstorm (which we only get here once every five years or so) when they get covered with dirt from the melting snow and slush their tires throw up on them.  Even then, most of the grime is on the outside; the inside still remains moderately clean.

Where have you gone, Home Economics Class?   Huh 

We learned sewing in Home Ec in the 90's.  It's not dead (at least it wasn't then).

Home EC didn't exist in my HS and was practically dead in my MS.

No Home Ec?  Bummer....you missed out on all the meatloaf recipes!  ;-)

Most likely those who made Alveus Lacuna's lunch didn't have Home Ec either....as they skipped the drumstick...a crucial part of every fried chicken meal!

If more women sewed their own clothes, there would be less criticisms by Staci London, host of What Not to Wear.

I do emphatize with women who go into the finest boutiques in NYC and can't find absolutely nothing to wear.

Where have you gone, Home Economics Class?   Huh

I had Home Ec! I also have a Grandmother who was a professional Seamstress.

I hate to sew! I have absolutely no patience for it. Thank God for store bought clothes!

I don't mind sewing....until I realize I've sewn it on the wrong "bias"....so when I put on the skirt that I so lovingly sewed, the one half droops.
