Some noted thinkers and problem solvers claim higher education helps foster
"out-the-box" thinking. This might just be a prime example. Here is my solution to the need for tiebacks
to go with the new bedroom curtains. While attending the IMS2011 show in Baltimore, Melanie and I each
were treated to neck straps for holding ID cards. EM simulation software vendor
CST provided them as part of their promotion campaign.
The bright color scheme matches these curtains perfectly, and the straps happen to be just about the
right size for the task at hand. There is only one window in the room, so two straps are enough.
In case your fashion sensibility is concerned that using the CST neck straps would possibly cheapen
the decor, fear not. The curtains are straight off the Walmart rack. No harm done. Until such time as
the bedroom gets painted and remodeled, CST gets some free advertising from the neck straps.
