Let us now praise pediculocide shampoos. I was reading a history book not long ago, about Julian the Apostate. He described humorously his problem with lice: "I put up with the lice that scamper about in (my beard) as though it were a thicket for wild beasts." Imagine an Emperor, in elegant Constantinople, joking about being infested with lice!

No not in the least! I have done nit picking--my children had lovely fine hair-- so fine that tha fine toothed comb wasn't fine enough to remove nits-- so I sat and nit picked..

given a choice, i would much rather change a stinky diaper than nit pick-- one is over and done in a few minutes-- the other goes on for hours!

Did you know lice are facetious-- they prefer clean hair? and while Bill is happy about effective shampoo's they are serious chemical to apply to young childrens scalps..

I can't wiggle my ears, but I can twiddle my thumbs in opposite directions. AND: I can appear to twitch my nose by moving my upper lip back and forth, just like Elizabeth Montgomery used to do in Bewitched.

What do I win!?!
