Hello Friends! I have been naughty.
Back in April, my Beloved wrote a tutorial about how to make a facemask at home. In our part of the world, fabric was scarce and supplies in general were limited, so she researched what materials made the best filters from salvagable material.
If you are at a place where you need to make a facemask that does not wrap around the ears, here is the link.
So, my Beloved is a local hero. A local construction company was in dire need of face masks that were durable and they used her pattern to manufacture several dozen of these for their employees. I am not sure how effective they are at this point, but some of the workers are still wearing the same mask many months later, a testament to the durability and effectivnesss of the design.
I am proud of her contribution and she deserves a shout out.
Recently, when I wrote Word Pirates, Brother’s Campfire recieved some flack for not allowing plagiarism. I will continue to protect the interests of Brothers Campfire as it sets an example for others to protect their work as well.
I assure you, despite my firm stance on stealing words, we have done our part in not spreading Covid, but rather Kindness (I use a different approach than the link.)
in ensuring folks in every industry we could help recieved either a donated mask or the instructions on how to do so with the resources available.
Now a story. I told you I was naughty. Now I am compelled to say why.
First of all, I have been accused of being a troll, and perhaps in some ways I have if trolling trolls is trolling.
Anyway, I am analytical at times and was looking at different keywords others use when they are looking for my site. Face Mask Tutorial Brothers Campfire are a string of words used for example.
Curious to find out what other sites used the same string, I found this gem.
Being a storyteller, I called a character from the dark recesses of my mind and gave him an opportunity to meddle in the medical. He is almost mystical in his knowledge of many things.
Folks, I present medical professional and world traveler, Wooster Romany.
Wooster Romany reached out to this company and submitted his demand, just like the website says.
A response was forthcoming.
“Dora” was not informed that key words were used on their website and it was fun to have Wooster Romany show me photos from my blog sent by Www.Tongweimedical.com . She was genuinely confused.
Poor Dora was still confused. Wooster sent her a screenshot of the quote form above and an exerpt from the Tongwei website to let her know what he was referring to. Here it is.
Works for me. I would consider this fair use as it credits the author, Bella Bizzie.
Wooster felt as though he was asking for the wrong product and asked about the Bella Bizzie 9.
So there you have it. The Chinese have used the Brother’s Campfire Facemask model, potentially saving millions of lives! Doctor Romany demanded more.
Brother’s Campfire may be in business. Thanks Doctor Romany and thank you, Tongwei Medical!
