Ever wonder who thought about this?

I mean it really is a life saver sometimes…

The world’s first ATM was developed by De La Rue and installed in Enfield Town in North London on June 27, 1967 by Barclays Bank. This instance of the invention is credited to John Shepherd-Barron, although Luther George Simjian registered patents in New York, USA in the 1930s and Donald Wetzel and two other engineers from Docutel registered a patent on June 4, 1973. Shepherd-Barron was awarded an OBE in the 2005 New Year’s Honours.

BTW, TYME stands for: Take Your Money Everywhere…

We were having a conversation on the drive home last night about how to describe various pains and periods came up… (Look, I just live here…) Anyway we got on the subject of periods. I call it riding the ‘crimson wave’ and my daughter hates that term… So I got to thinking about that; what did women do when it was that time of the month way back when. I mean I know how the Native women hooked things up in the 1800’s but even in my mothers time line. I can remember my mother and I discussing what she had to go through. Using rags and then Kotex with ‘the belt’, I mean it could only have been hell.

No adhesive? No snug fitting undies? Shall we mention the bulkiness; say the size of a cloth diaper swelled 3 times its own size? AHHHHHHH!!!

So, let us take a look at the history of the sanitary napkin, from Modess to Kotex and Stayfree and BEYOND!
