It rained during the night! The weatherpeople forecast rain for yesterday. The day, however, was sunny and warm. The rain apparently arrived during the night, since evidence of it was visible this morning. The sky is overcast, and more rain may well be on the way. The birds are not singing.

I bought a Braun 360º Complete 8995 Clean&Renew. The 360º Complete 8995 Clean&Renew is the world's first 360 degree complete shaver from Braun. It simply captures the hair other shavers leave behind: new PowerComb technology lifts problem hairs that lie flat against the skin. The Smart Foil technology captures hair from any direction and the 4-way moving active head follows the contours of your skin for that close shave. The Gillette Precision Comfort Blades cut hair close in a single stroke. The Clean&Renew system cleans, lubricates, dries and charges the shaver putting it in optimal shape ready for your next shave. There are 3 automated cleaning programs. There is an extendable trimmer for long hairs.

The 360º Complete 8995 Clean&Renew is rechargeable. Charging time is 60 minutes, and a quick charge takes 3 minutes. Input voltage is 100-240V, and the shaver comes with a 12V smart plug. The LCD panel is interactive, and the shaver has smart logic inside, including foil and cutter replacement alert. The Braun 8995 might seem pricey ($149.95 at, but when one considers the annual cost of shaving cream and razor blades, it is a bargain. I highly recommend the Braun 360º Complete 8995 Clean&Renew to all.
