    No, Dr. Bonner's never had TV commercials, but there are some on youTube.

    Riddle Sideways: very deep subjects... that we take lightly
    Nymf Hathaway: Soap was the topic so far... Riddle, what did you read?
    Riddle Sideways: the Dr. Bonners Soap bottle has a thousand little words all over it
    Riddle Sideways: about not only what the product can be used for/as
    Riddle Sideways: but the all-one spirit
    Mary Korpov: Bye
    Riddle Sideways: ok, c'ya
    Riddle Sideways: I can't doo that label justice, oh wait...
    Nymf Hathaway: :)
    Riddle Sideways: http://www.drbronner.com/dr_bronners_philosophy.html
    Nymf Hathaway: Looking :)
    Riddle Sideways: search engine to the rescue
    Riddle Sideways: many people talk of the great thoughts that they have in the shower
    Nymf Hathaway: Wonderful :)
    Riddle Sideways: I have some of my best in the shower
    Nymf Hathaway: yes... I use my shower time as well to think
    Riddle Sideways: then to read a soap bottle about all-one
    Nymf Hathaway: seems water helps a lot
    Riddle Sideways: makes me appreciate the presense
    Riddle Sideways: of soap
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    Riddle Sideways: I have never used it as mouth wash tho
    Nymf Hathaway: remembers the stories of her grandparents about WWII where they didn't have soap anymore... after the war my grandmother collected soap...just in case
    Riddle Sideways: yes, odd little ttraditions people pick up
    Nymf Hathaway: :)
    Nymf Hathaway: well her closets smelled delicious :)
    Riddle Sideways: hard to see yourself and what you collect (or not)
    Nymf Hathaway: yes
    Nymf Hathaway: and if it is rational or not :)
    Riddle Sideways: I don't see me doing any of that
    Riddle Sideways: but there are some near me that tell the odest stories about me
    Nymf Hathaway: hahahha really? :)
    Riddle Sideways: bet you don't see yourself doing those things
    Nymf Hathaway: example?
    Riddle Sideways: you are almost normal
    Nymf Hathaway: what is normal?
    Riddle Sideways was hoping that wouldnot come up
    Nymf Hathaway: :)
    Riddle Sideways: I don'tthink I know
    Riddle Sideways: then again, of course I know normal, usual, same ol, etc
    Nymf Hathaway: No one does....what majority sees as normal... is accepted as normal, but majority isn't wise so :)
    Riddle Sideways: majority is often the dumbest common denominator
    Nymf Hathaway: I agree
    Riddle Sideways: I saw a really good tv show that had the dumbest commercials
    Nymf Hathaway: should have taken a couple of days that program
    Nymf Hathaway: please go on :)
    Riddle Sideways: thought provoking show, and intelligence numbing ads
    Nymf Hathaway: Asian commercials can be odd
    Nymf Hathaway: althugh...according to western point of view :)
    Nymf Hathaway: although
    Riddle Sideways: have seen some on youTube, but they might not representative
    Riddle Sideways: they would be the best/worst being pointed out
    Nymf Hathaway: well I think a good commercial in general is rare
    Riddle Sideways: then a good one is played to death
    Riddle Sideways: the 15min beel just reminded me that my bell at work has quit
    Riddle Sideways: I hadn't noticed
    Nymf Hathaway: Why do you have a bell at work?
    Riddle Sideways: It started as the PaB 15min gong
    Riddle Sideways: then I told my boss that it was for my consentration
    Riddle Sideways: at 15 min intervals I needed to refocus
    Nymf Hathaway: Hello Eliza :)
    Riddle Sideways: Hi Eliza
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Nymf, Riddle
    Eliza Madrigal: Just getting my bearings this morning, don't let me interrupt. :)
    Riddle Sideways: we were chatting of Dr.Bonners Soap and commercials on tv
    Nymf Hathaway: Good morning to you :)
    Riddle Sideways: ya know those commercials interrupt about every 15 minutes
    Riddle Sideways: like my PaB gong
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Nymf Hathaway: They are enoying on tv :(
    Riddle Sideways: and I tune them out
    Riddle Sideways: and take a deep breath
    Riddle Sideways: I watch a little tv now that I have a recorder
    Eliza Madrigal: This is what makes TiVo a marvelous invention...that one may pause whenever they like. i miss the tivo more than the tv since we turned it off.
    Riddle Sideways: yes, can pause on our schedule
    Nymf Hathaway: Doesn't know TiVo...what is it?
    Riddle Sideways: and can fast-forward through adverts
    Nymf Hathaway: Video?
    Eliza Madrigal: yes! So I guess that is the same thing Riddle.
    Riddle Sideways: video recorder
    Nymf Hathaway: oke :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Nymf, yes, it is a recorder, but you set up shows to record in advance..
    Nymf Hathaway: Nice... and yes I agree, much better
    Eliza Madrigal: I rent quite a bit of tv on dvd sometimes... especially over summer
    Riddle Sideways: recorder can be setup to record shoes that I have not seen
    Riddle Sideways: skip ones I have
    Nymf Hathaway: Needs to log off, wishing you both a nice conversation and see you soon
    Riddle Sideways: ok, bye Nymf
    Eliza Madrigal: Bye Nymf , have a wonderful day
    Nymf Hathaway: Bye bye Thanks Eliza :)
    Eliza Madrigal: I just finished Twin Peaks on dvd, because it came up on conversations over and over again... quite bizarre
    Riddle Sideways: I remember watching the first year
    Riddle Sideways: really bizarre
    Eliza Madrigal: was frustrating not to have resolution to anything by the end, but at least now I know what the references are :)
    Riddle Sideways: did not watch any other years
    Eliza Madrigal: Were 2 it seems..now waiting for the film which should explain something... maybe... I hope
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Riddle Sideways: maybe, but might be just adding more questions
    Eliza Madrigal: that I will then have to live with! Ack1
    Eliza Madrigal: 1=!
    Riddle Sideways: I have been watching the BattleStar Gallactica series
    Riddle Sideways: am half way thru the last year
    Riddle Sideways: do not know howit comes out
    Riddle Sideways: oh dear, am having connection probs again
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, you weren't typing?
    Riddle Sideways: no, the arms/hands were wiggling
    Riddle Sideways: but nothing comes out :)
    Eliza Madrigal: heh...thought you were going to tell me the whole series, which I did hear was great because of the strong characters
    Riddle Sideways: for many years I did not watch tv
    Riddle Sideways: then some great series came to attention
    Riddle Sideways: BSG has strong characters that is more then sci-fi
    Eliza Madrigal: In some ways TV is better now than it used to be, but I don't like the household dynamic of Tvs on constantly
    Eliza Madrigal: which I kind of grew up in... have been mindful not to fall into that
    Riddle Sideways: yes, when growing up, tv was only after 7pm
    Riddle Sideways: then it became all the time
    Riddle Sideways: now it is just the recorder when I want
    Eliza Madrigal: With the recorders and dvd, thankfully one can watch tv when they want and what they want, yes! I still try to catch Charlie Rose at night :)
    Riddle Sideways: daugther only watches during her break
    Riddle Sideways: I have never watched Charlie Rose, but the people at resturant table next to mine last week were very loud about it
    Eliza Madrigal: hahah..what topic?
    Riddle Sideways: I think I heard the entire series
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh My
    Riddle Sideways: there wer 4 at the table
    Riddle Sideways: they each wanted to shout over the others about "the show about..."
    Riddle Sideways: "but, wiat the one about ..."
    Riddle Sideways: "no, no the one about ..."
    Eliza Madrigal: I can't imagine Charlie generating that much excitement!
    Riddle Sideways: They seems so animated
    Riddle Sideways: they were probably in their 70's
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, that explains it... my inner 70 year old understands
    Riddle Sideways: and probably usually very sedate
    Riddle Sideways: ah that inner70 yearold
    Riddle Sideways: the old know it all, senile
    Eliza Madrigal: Well, she actually feels about 17 still, but she spends a lot of her time putting on face cream and walking around in the yard talking to squirrels
    Eliza Madrigal: except when Charlie is on
    Eliza Madrigal: though of course by then he'll be in re-runs
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: (sorry, not enough coffee this morning-heh)
    Riddle Sideways: my inner 70 and 17 both argue all the time
    Eliza Madrigal: generation gap, huh?
    Riddle Sideways: "why, when I was young..."
    Riddle Sideways: "well I am young and ..."
    Eliza Madrigal nods..."Pluto was a planet..." that sort of thing
    Riddle Sideways: "I remember" vs "I am making memories"
    Eliza Madrigal: :) heard the bell at the end, but not the beginning. Hm
    Riddle Sideways: yes
    Eliza Madrigal: Nice chatting with you honest Riddle, am off for now. :) Thanks
    Riddle Sideways: me too
    Riddle Sideways: thanks
    Eliza Madrigal: Bye :)
    Riddle Sideways: bye
