My hippie-dippy plumber gave me this book on a recent visit and I just happened to open it last night.

Fantastic technology.

Better than your doctor has.

And a heckuva lot cheaper and more convenient.

But wait — there's more!

"Accessories include hook, magnet, and mirror" — be still my heart.

$165.95 (iPhone/iPad not included).

Cheap at twice — even three times — the price.

Finally, a look inside my external ear canal to see just what lurks there.

Wax? Creatures? UFOs? Who knows?

Gonna find out.

Now, to figure out a way to view things on Google Glass....

Catme 13/Glass Effect 40 — Gray Cat at twilight (Video through Google Glass)

It was a quiet evening, about 7:30 p.m. yesterday, when I donned Glass and joined Gray Cat in her sanctum sanctorum for some evening activities.

I never fail to learn something from her.

Simply being quiet, watching and listening suffices.

That fur, soft as mink, smells like heaven.

Answer here this time tomorrow.

Hint: smaller than a bread box.

Another: waterproof.

A third: Corian.
