Interesting information about a hearing condition called tinnitus from Sue Vincent
Today there will be a two minute silence, an act of Remembrance. How many will hear it?
‘Quite. Do you realise that the word silent and the word listen are comprised of the same set of letters arranged in a different order?’

Your welcome! I thought it was an interesting topic that many people have that may get some great information from your post. Thanks for sharing… 🙂

Interesting. Did you have a lot of ear infections when you were young? But it is interesting that you and Nick share the same affliction…you can relate to it. Hope it gets better and you start hearing again! 🙂
No, my ears were fine, but I do have some spinal damage which is possibly the cause.
I hope so too 🙂
Probably some nerve that connects there or something. Wish I had a magic wand to fix it 🙂
So do I… though I’d probably find someone else who needs it more none too far away 😉
