Max to the Vet

Last night we had to take Max, our chocolate laborador retriever, to the vet. The poor guy has been getting a rash on his groin that clearly itches. The vet gave him some medicine, and the worst possible prognosis. He may be allergic to PEOPLE FOOD!

The vet told us to remove all table scraps and cat food from his diet for 2 months then gradually reintroduce things one at a time. This is going to be torture for Max who lets his dogfood bowl sit full all day long. He only eats dog food when he is faced with starvation. (Granted, starvation sets in several times daily for labs.)

Poor Max, my 79 pound puppy, will have to suffer with kibbles and bits.

Google Glass has amazing potential for people like me. I can't use my arms or legs any longer. I use my voice recognition software to type, design websites, write articles and marketing plans for clients.

In the era of smart phones, they aren't very friendly to people like me. Most of them can't be navigated with a mouse, and even Apple's Siri doesn't do a great job with voice activation. First, you have to press a button just to get her attention.

but with this device, which connects through my android phone, I'd be able to read email and navigate my basic telephone functions with wearable g…
