We proudly present our August item of the month aka "Get Eclipsed!"
Total solar eclipses don't come around all that often and one is crossing a large swath of
the United States this August 21st. The Boston area will experience "only" a 70% eclipse,
but something tells us that's not going to be too shabby and we have the NASA approved viewing glasses
to prove it! We also have a very informative and over the top enthusiastic booklet that
comes with its own two pairs of glasses. We mocked its slightly "gee whiz" journalism,
but were set straight by our customer Lisa, who told us she had seen a total eclipse while
living abroad, and yes, her hair really did stand up on end, just like the booklet says it will.
(she didn't mention whether people were screaming in amazement, but we'll assume that's right too.)
