Happy Birthday!

Robert Johnson

was born 2/16/1845
(d.1910).

Not the bluesman, no, it's the great Robert W. Johnson ("dubya"), who first developed & marketed antiseptic bandages.

Eventually, a young Johnson & Johnson employee, Earle Dickson innovated the adhesive strip for them (basically because his own wife kept burning her fingers when cooking) and these went on the market January, 1921.

The term "plaster" is still used in Europe to refers to these and also properly to any plaster-like self-drying medicinal goop –and sometimes to medication or treatment in general. [thanx Johnson and Johnson Co.]

        He laid her down upon a bank
        And he provided the plaister
        When she rose up unto her feet
        Says, "I hope you'll never end it"

                "She Was A Rum One" per E MacColl

Note: Curious about the lady in the song's condition, and ever seeking total accuracy in Happiness, I asked Dr. D. Godorov for a possible diagnosis. Seems the lady's symptoms (mincing steps, extreme tickling sensation) could be caused by haematocolpos (or hematocolpos for USians) - 'An accumulation of menstrual blood in the vagina.'   It is usually due to an imperforate hymen. This would explain the instant relief by means of a single sex act with attendant rupture of the hymen. There may be other explanations, of course.

Johnson & Johnson may lay claim to many things & much wealth but none of them within that family except one deserves much credit when it comes to folk music except Peter Johnson, who's still alive & kicking & still pushing folk music today. Since his release from the Marines in 57 or 59 he has produced & promoted folk music in the Boston/Cambridge area most of his life. His estrangement from family did not prevent him from being one of the main reasons (aside from the GBFSS) that folk music is so strong in New England today.
