Post-Its: paper capers

Do you need a break from the depressing news of the day? Take a Post-It break with me.

The Post-it note was invented by 3M‘s Art Fry using a unique low-tackadhesive developed by a colleague, Spencer Silver. Originally it was a 3″ square piece of canary yellow paper with a re-adherable strip of adhesive on the back, designed for temporarily attaching notes to documents, furniture, and so forth. The charm of Post-it notes is that they can be easily attached and removed without leaving marks or residue.  They’re now available in a wide range of colors, shapes, sizes, and styles.

  1. Hah! That was fun.

    I’m not qualified to comment on US politics, but I do enjoy your energetic rantstake on it all, especially as you seem to be so well informed.

    So don’t think that just because I’m not commenting that I’m not reading…and enjoying.

  2. Grateful for your attention, scatterbrain!

    I say feel free to comment here on US politics. Many less qualified than you, who live in this country, feel quite free to pontificate on prime-time TV, even if it’s total twaddle.

  3. Good Godess, Woman, where do you find the time?!?
