The Ears Have It

This image is from The Way to Eden, a third season Star Trek (classic) episode. Dr. Sevrin had the ears to beat all ears. When I was a kid, my Trekker friends and I would call 'em "cauliflower ears."

Howz that, AP3?

btw, a young Charles Napier played one of the "hippies" in this episode.

I have tried the gun-shop ear plugs like my doctor recommended and they do block out most noise. They're hard to get in properly, and they sort of irritate my ears, unfortunately. I am finding that I do fall asleep faster with them on. I'm still waking up around 2-2:30 am, however.

Glad the plugs help. Lots of folks wake up during the night. What is helpful is to NOT start planning the day ahead when you wake.

My girls are nuts over ears? Where did I go wrong?

Hey, that's my father-in-law!

I use ear plugs all the time. They work wonders for me - glad they're helping you.

Well, let's see... Do you take off your Dr. Sevrin ears before you go to bed?

That was a great episode. I still remember the ears. He had a disease. right?

TLP: I'm not nuts over ears, just reacting to AP3

Doug: yup, he did.

Dddragon, I used to use those earplugs driving farm machinery. You get used to them after awhile but the best part is you won't need q-tips.

You are really trying to show Aral up by posting those ears!

My hubby has trouble sleeping. He has tried a few different sleep aids from the doc. He is using a new one and it seems to be working for him. I know it is hard for anyone to functin well without a good night's sleep.

(I'm not the least bit into ears, couldn't even pick out my own in a line-up)
It's great the earplugs work! I have a pair of cheapies bought at CVS that really block a lot of sound, too. I've mostly used them at work, and never thought about trying them at night. Hmmm

I've been having quite a bit of trouble sleeping for the last six months now too. Unfortunatly most of mine has been infant induced. The earplugs sound like an absolutly great idea.
