Mom's application for Long Term Care at a really nice nursing home has been accepted. I am so relieved. She's currently in rehabilitation and this week walked 24 feet!

Sounds great! My mom is at a retirement center that she really likes, tho not in the "nursing care" section yet.

Heap praise on those who rescued the Wild Boars football team.

According to the NYT several of boys, and the coach, are stateless refugees. One of whom, the one with the cheesy grin, speaks five languages - Thai, Wa, Burmese, Mandarin and English.

Say a prayer for the guy who died delivering oxygen.

I’m a Great Auntie! I’m so excited! All is well but I think Daddy may be feeling a little overwhelmed.

This is the first baby in our family since I had my twins 14 years ago. I can’t wait to spoil the little tyke rotten and give him back to his Mom tired, hungry and in a poopy diaper. Ahh, the joys of close-to-but-not parenthood!

Dear son #1 made the long (28 hours total travel) trip home for a few days, and the trip home (24 hours total) safely.

Bus from Gumi South Korea to Incheon takes 3+ hours, Incheon to JFK is 14 hours, 2 hours from there to Cleveland, then an hour drive home, plus all layovers and waiting, customs, etc = 28 hours

4 days wasn't nearly long enough after 2 years of being away but very thankful for safe travel.

Today, and every day, I’m thankful for my husband’s patience, care, love and attention.

And his pot roast. He makes really good pot roast.

Last Thursday we paid off my sister's funeral bill in full. I'm thankful I no longer have to raise funds. I don't like begging for money it just feels wrong and I was getting desperate as donations had stopped as people go on with their lives and hubby's out of work again. I didn't know what we were going to do. It's done now, all paid thanks to a state refund of mom's we didn't know about and now my sister can truly rest in peace and finally gets her gravestone with engraving. No more sleepless night and walking the floor worried about this. I was in deep depression due to this and hubby's job loss and mental health. Now having my sister final resting place taken care, it helps lift so much darkness I was in.

Ever since I got Windows 10 (shortly before the free upgrade from Win 7 period expired), whenever I shut down or restarted my ethernet connected desktop my TP-Link router would reset. This was irritating because other devices would lose connectivity for a few minutes while the router went through its power up song-and-dance routine.

This hasn't been happening since I upgraded to Win 10 1803 last week.

First snow of the season (and way, way too early), several inches with freezing rain on top of that to give it the heft of concrete. I especially dreaded digging out the top of the driveway where the town plows take a fiendish joy in dumping many streets' worth of snow accumulation.

But... an anonymous and most benevolent plow angel not only dug out the top, he took a pass down the driveway, too. Blessings on thee, kind sir! May your tribe increase.

Really grateful to have a loving wife, an overabundance of books and that I haven't really 'gone without' in what feels like a lifetime. A recent example is I left my job several months ago to go pursue a dream and when I seemed to have lost almost everything, I mentioned to colleagues that I was considering returning to my field and my company practically begged me to come back and even helped obtain tickets and a loan for relocating. I feel very fortunate and have a heart full of gratitude towards those who have helped me network and find the opportunities which have sustained me. My engine runs on good luck and I try to always remember that when I see others with a similar need. My goal is that when everything is said and done, that I will have the opportunity to give more than I have taken and leave the world just a little bit better of a place.

Our youngest son and his wife, and their 3 sons, recently moved to our area. 20 minutes away is much nicer than 7 hours.

He left for college in 2002, and hasn’t live here since then.

Hearing Aids - 'Remote' Control

A few years ago I got a letter from a hearing aid outfit (audiologists) telling me I was eligible for a free hearing test, and free hearing aids if required. I had noticed my hearing had deteriorated so I went along.

The upshot was I decided to get some aids. On the basis of vanity I got the ones that wrap over the ear. They sort of worked in that they made things louder, but also tinny, but they kept falling off. I've always had small ears - they've even been described as cute/sweet etc.

At the first annual checkup I told the audiologist about the falling off problem, the result was that I got them replaced by the devices that go into the ear. That solved the falling off problem, but they still seemed tinny so I only wore them when I 'needed' them.

I few weeks ago I went for retest/review. Same place, but I saw a different audiologist. She made some adjustments, chastised me for not wearing them most of the time etc etc. She reduced the tinny sound considerably. And she enabled the T-loop feature which should make going to the movies less of a 'problem'.

Hearing aids have tiny buttons on them to change programs to suit different environments - which I've always found hard to use so I asked what could be done about that. She pulled out a little remote control - its not free - cost me $165.



It has made an enormous difference - I can change programs between Normal, Restaurant, T-loop (cinemas have this, its a magnetic loop), adjust volume, mute, change left/right volumes etc.

I haven't been to the cinema yet, need to ask my movie-mate what's on, and when she can go.

Apparently providing free hearing aides reduces the need for aged-care and disability services etc. Why they don't do it for dental care I don't know. We just lost the opportunity to get that by voting in the 'banana-with-raspberry-coulis' party, instead of the 'strawberry-with-a-cherry-on-top' party.
