Re sources of cheap microscopes. My wife, Dena purchased some inexpensive
dissecting scopes (approx $200) last year. Here is the information:

>>>Achiever Stereo Microscopes 10x/30x or 20x/40x (I believe he also sold
compound scopes but I was not interested at the time.)
At the time (Sep1999), they were $199 plus $11 S/H.
Jeff Myers is the person I dealt with.

Re the poem "Big Fleas, Little Fleas," by Robert W. Hegner which goes like

Big fleas have little fleas,
Upon their backs to bite them.
And little fleas have lesser fleas,
and so ad infinitum.

Tonight I ran across this verse by Dean Swift:

So Nat'ralists observe, a Flea
Hath smaller Fleas that on him prey.
And these have smaller Fleas to bite 'em,
And so proceed ad infinitum.
