Breathing is my normal way to attack static, it's not a problem getting
the ribbon...there is so much static that when I pull it off the tome,
it literally sucks to my hand like a magnet...and then it's gone.
Thanks everyone for your suggestions!  I am hoping to only have to deal
with this for a short while longer.  I like the penguin idea just cause
I think that will be the funniest!!
Thanks again!!

This is New Mexico where "humidity" is a rumor.  The humidity in the lab
here - as I write - is 18% and that's on a really wet day!  If I have
static issues with my ribbons, I just lean a little bit toward the block
and "breathe" on it and the ribbons just float (in a good way) off the
knife.  I do that so often that when I use my sewing machine, I find
myself breathing on the material.  That's just sad!  But try the
Breathing Thing.  Or not.
