Awwww yeah! USA Men's National team beat Northern Ireland. First win over a Euro opponent in almost six years.

- Medal at this summer's Olympics.
- World Cup champs in 2022 in Qatar.

Too high expectations?



You should move to England and support them, you'll blend right in

I am not going to work tomorrow. I just worked 12 days straight because of how tight deadlines are, but tomorrow I am not going to work. It just sunk in. Wow, I am not working tomorrow. Feels great.

Growing season is upon us. Windowsill space is getting hard to come by as usual due to my abundance of seed trays. I still have half of my crop to sow. It's lame but growing stuff this time of years gives that feeling of better things to come. Needed more than ever this year.


Sown the other half of my crop. 104 plants needing space indoors for the next month or so. Definitely need more windowsills.

It's so good to see the daily progress. Been lazy this year with seed trays, rescued some frogspawn from the pond though so we've got tadpoles to watch.
Amazing how a few degrees of warmth speeds up their growth.
So that's the story. And what was the real lesson? Don't leave things in the fridge.

Hey Macros I'm gonna need you to verify the accuracy of this picture, titled "The Irish View of Europe" (which is making me happy as it was a bit of a laugh when I saw it):

Not in the slightest Tiste, far too polite about the English and alas most people here are less than complimentary about the eastern European nations.

Buuuuuut I get the gist everyone but the English, which I naturally agree with

My progress with cochlear implants is amazing. I can have phone conversations no problem. Find I am not really relying on captioning anymore on some TV programs, which is crazy. Listening to music, especially anything with distortion, is still a work in progress - but there is noticeable progress. Speech recognition test scores going from with hearing aids before surgery, day after turn on, one month and now three months were:
Easy test 14%-67%-95%-didn't bother with it, it was too easy for me
Hard test 8%-37%-78%-95%

The astounding part to me is that in quiet settings (work, audie's office, during testing, etc.) I don't need to make any conscious effort to understand most people now. I know I am making some extra effort, as days were I have lots of meetings I am mentally exhausted at the end of the day. But, nowhere near the amount of effort it took to speech read even three years ago before my hearing dove off again. Even in an ideal situation speech reading is really hard work, that I can just sit back and hear things instead is mind blowing.

Gym reopened. My mood has shot upwards since. Everything hurts but I'm so happy. God I really am a filthy masochist aren't I.
