News, Notes, and Mentions circa 2002-2008

This page started acting wonky, the new one is below.

News circa 2009-2011

22 NOVEMBER 2008 > 

 • Flurry of Additions to all the galleries.
Charlotte and Tina have contributed many more that need adding, but they reached
    the +50 mark today. Congrats, Ladies. And my apologies for the delay.
 • In a quandry about the "International" section. Details later.
 • Received a package from Diane at Sanfacon. Thanks, Diane!

26 OCTOBER 2008 > 
It bums me out that I don't have more time to work on the site. I am very behind in new acquisitions.
   Seriously need a moist towelette assistant to help!

19 JULY 2008 > 

Somehow the top navigation bars were changed to the bottom navigation bar on many pages.
    Annoying and seemingly never ending.

  • Went to see The Dark Knight at Universal Studios on the Imax last night. The Joker uses hand
    hand sanitizer. I thought it was really good (4 out of 5 stars) until I watched The Mission 
    later that night. "Pretty good" was downgraded to "good" when compared to "really good."

2 JUNE 2008 >  
Golly! This year is just flying by. Seems like all I do is work. No complaints there except I
    never have time to update the site.

16 JANUARY 2008 > 
Uploaded the site to a new server last night and today. Please change any links.

  • Ugh. So many broken links and somehow the header was changed on over 700 pages.
    The pages look silly and I'm working on it. The moist towelette love affair continues.

26 NOVEMBER 2007 >  
This site is over 5 years old. I've spent hundreds possibly even thousands (shudder) of hours
    on it. I've always been proud that it was a labour of love, that I never profited a penny.
    Maybe this should change?

22 NOVEMBER 2007 > 
  • The computer I use to update this site got a nasty virus and I just now worked it out. Am working for
    the next couple weeks so no updates for a bit. Sad!

  • Received the 2000 moist towelettes (mentioned below). They are lovely! Thanks to Diane at Sanfacon.

  • In Oct, my site had 2,537 visitors. To date in November, there's already been 3,325. Yippee!

22 OCTOBER 2007 >  
Updated the Home page. Now I remember why it took me so long since the previous update. Found it
    to be an
unpleasant and time-consuming process. Love Dreamweaver, but it has some major bugs.
    Surprising as this may be, I do have a life outside of Moist Towelettes. Dreamweaver made
    something that should have been easy very difficult. Kinda made me have a cranky rant.

  • Any day now, 2000 blank moist towelettes will arrive my door. What a happy thought.
    Each side of the moist towelettes will be stamped. One side will say www.moist-towelette.com
    and the other side will have my name and email address. Thought this would make an original
    business card here in good ol' Hollywood.

12 OCTOBER 2007 > 
The 2,000+ broken links have been fixed. Dozens of moist towelettes have been added.
    Feel free to email me (jbpopplewell@gmail.com) if you find any errors.

6 OCTOBER 2007 >  
  • A moist towelette from Burma.

  • Found out today that a book called New England's Favorite Seafood Shacks: Eating Up the Coast
    from Connecticut to Maine
by Elizabeth Bougerol has been published. It was to include a quote
about moist towelettes. I'm going to buy a copy on Amazon.

  • Have added about 40 moist towelettes to site and fixed many of the links. There were actually
    closer to 2,000 broken links.

  • The Mark Mothersbaugh contributions represented on the site have reached 80 - still have dozens to
    add from him. His artwork puts him in a Special Moist Towelette Division all by himself.

1 OCTOBER 2007 >  

  • Christ on a crutch, there are a lot of broken links...1,616 precisely. I'm working on 'em. No time to
add new items yet.

  On a very sad note, my favorite little friend, NutterButter, was put to sleep today. Such a
    deceptive term "put to sleep." Rest In Peace, Nutter. You are forever in my Heart.


FINALLY! Haven't been able to update the site because my computer was stolen last Sept. My
    friends, Katie and Scott,
 gave me one of their older computers that already has Dreamweaver
    and Photoshop on it. The updates will begin. Thanks Katie and Scott!

  A heartfelt thanks to Michael Pilmer for hosting this site for several years.

  This site is going to be uploaded to a new server over the next few days.

SEPTEMBER 2006 >  

  • Just returned from seeing Nitzer Ebb play 3 California shows. Amazing! Spent the lovely alone
     time that followed working on the site - been putting the moist towelettes in chronological order -
    the spreadsheets are beautiful.

Received a package with a very nice letter from Paul Gottesburen. He is a chemist at a company that
     "specializes in premoistened towelettes." He sent 17 samples to add to my collection. Thanks, Paul!

  Had over 1,000 visitors in July.

  • On July 8, site was mentioned on Stolen and Contaminated. Thanks!

  • I'm WAY behind in adding new towelettes. Work is mad busy, please be patient wonderful contributors!
JUNE 2006 > 
   There was over 1,800 visitors to my site in June. I do have meaning and influence!

    • On June 13, Nicholas Greco was kind enough to link to my site and email me about trading. Yippee!

• Updated the Manufacturer page. Added all the Sanfacon additions. Thanks again, Diane!

MAY 2006 > 
 • An article in the Plain Dealer of Cleveland, OH mentions my site as a source and lists the URL.
   The article says, "More than 260 -- Number of different types of moist towelettes pictured on
   the Online Moist Towelette Museum. Actually there are more than 500 different types.
   Oh well, not everybody is good at addition.

Chris and Erin called from Serbia to tell me they got some moist towelettes from Yugoslavia
   and one from Dubai.
Exciting! They were going to Croatia the next day. Double Exciting!

Had 1,992 visitors in May.

 • Still cataloging. Painfully slow progress. It's already so very happy though.

APRIL 2006>  
Am in the process of cataloging all the moist towelettes on the site. I want to
    put them in chronological
 order. Most recently added will be at the top of the
    gallery home pages. JesusMaryandJoseph, it's a long process.
