Change of Shift Goes On the Road/Science Blogging Conference


I’ve been trying to think of an appropriate comment for this old ad for “The Little Home Doctor”.

A euphemistic bon mot.

Something G-rated, yet provocative.

First of all, why is it called the “Moon” massage vibrator?

What was considered a “moon” back then?

It claims to give a clearer complexion, but it doesn’t explain how!

Use your imagination.

Today you can buy the modern prototypes of Moon Massage Vibrators at Sharper Image.

Just in case you wanted one.

For historical purposes, of course.


Change of Shift really is going on the road!

The next three editions have guest hosts! Special thanks to Julie at Life in the NHS, Mama Doc at Fat Doctor and the host for the next edition, John at Disappearing John, RN.

It’s not too early to send your submissions to John at “disappearingjohn at gmail dot com”.

There are a million nursing stories in the blogosphere.

Send your best ones to Change of Shift!


Blogger (and friend) Coturnix of “Blog Around the Clock” has let me know that there will be a Science Blogging Conference at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on January 20, 2007.

I recognize many of the names on the participant list, and it looks like a great conference in the making!

If you are near North Carolina, consider attending!

You can find the details here: North Carolina Science Blogging Conference

Thanks to Bora (Coturnix) for the heads up!

    Perhaps if we announced that there will be a “Moon” in each schwag bag, we’d have a problem of too many people coming to the conference (and the sex-ratio would not be male-skewed as usual…) LOL
