I went right in and hugged my sewing machine-they sure have come a long way! Thanks for the history tidbit1

And thanks to the lawyer who helped him get the patent. Without that, others would have just knocked it off, it wouldn't have made anyone any money, and my wife, her mom, her grandma, and so many others wouldn't be able to do all the wonderful things they do. Hooray for the lawyers! Isn't that what Shakespeare said?
