Awesome photos from Telluride, Colorado

One of my favorite places ever to ski and to visit is a tiny town in the Southwest corner of Colorado called Telluride. I’ve been there four times over the last five years staying around a week each time.  The town is small but very nice to walk around with many places to visit.  You don’t need a car once you are there because you can walk right to the ski lifts.  The gondola offers free transportation to the more modern and built up side of the mountain called Mountain Village. The skiing is a fabulous mix of miles of beginner runs that take half an hour to make it all the way down and tons of lovely expert terrain with enough steeps and trees and bumps to wear anyone out.  Then there is the Hike-To terrain, and even back country access and...

Norwegian Sign Language?

This came into my email recently, pretty interesting…. If you’ve never checked out Couch Surfing before, their website is a global community of people who want to host and be house guests.  We have hosted probably half a dozen times now.  It’s always interesting to talk to different people and show them around town.

Free Bird Originally uploaded by Southernpixel This morning I heard the beep on my car telling me I left my lights on. They were on only because it’s a bright sunny day and my commute is mostly due west and people can’t see what’s behind them (or coming towards them on a 2way road if they’re going into the sun). In that case it’s absolutely easy to forget to turn them off. The beep is very high pitched and not very loud because several hearing(?!) people told me before that it didn’t make a sound at all. I noticed something odd Monday when I was up and off to work an hour earlier than normal, everything sounded loud and uncomfortable, much like when I first got the CIs and put them on after having them off all night. I...

Mechanical Piano that “Speaks”

I haven’t gotten to watch this video with sound yet, but I can imagine what it sounds like.  There are captions of a sort that explain what’s going on.  It’s very similar to how our brain learns to hear cochlear implant stimulus as...
