Disposable Socks -- A Worldwide Movement

I received this email today:
to all the disaposable socks lovers

I am writing from downunder Australia in Melbourne. I would like to share an experience that I had today, Today MY dear mum and I visited a large department store in Melbourne by the name of Myers.We went to the sporting department in the basement lower ground level of the store. As my mother wanted to purchase a pair of walker shoes.
Anyway to cut the story short my mother wanted to try a pair of shoes in her size.She was wearing a pair of slip on shoes. so she was not wearing a pair of socks. when she asked to have a pair of socks to try with the shoes.The sales assistant pointed towards a bucket of used smelly white sports socks which were disgusting. I would have used a pair of sterial pair of gloves to touch those socks. It came to mind at that moment has anyone out there in this enviromental world invented a pair of disaposable socks that could be used for that purpose.I would be interested to know.

ciao for now

rita.


Yes, Rita, we hear you and we agree. The world over people are crying out for this product. Perhaps I will use some of my spare time to meet that demand. . .

By the way, if you type "Disposable Socks" in google, our weblog is the 4th hit. And the first 3? Other people who have had the same idea. Clearly I need to get moving on this opportunity or I will be beaten to the punch.

speaking of concerts...

a BSF report? please? gory details, lurid stories, vivid pictures?

i think you should write a song about socks. an appeal to the masses. a cry against consumerism. who knows, but capitalize on your disposable sock fame!

JD- We will provide you with a report very soon, but we may leave out some of the gory details, lurid stories, and vivid pictures.

Hey thanks for the suggestion sha'uri....lolz and yes Ian i WILL buy that cd. Its too cool of a cd to pass down! Maybe I'll go to a concert eh who knows. and just a random question...does anyone know moments in grace? Sorry I just got into them now and they rock! SO do you guys but they do too. I would get into that whole music, "who do you like" scene but its probably too long lol. Well thanks and keep rockin'!
