Hey Mike


My aunt has had her cochlear implant for about 10 years and she loves hers.  She had slowly lost her hearing over her lifetime due to illness as a kid.   She's in her 50's and from my understanding they don't like doing them in adults anymore.  It's amazing the technology that we have, and what it can do for people.

The hearing impaired/deaf world is quite vocally divided on CIs, and especially CIs for young children.

Onto more exciting news - we got a new project car today! Only this one snaps together.



So I dug out all of my old modelling paints and tools.  Tatiana and I will turn it into something more like this:

Wow, this has been a stressful stretch for you guys. So glad the path forward is positive. Pretty sure without kids there would be no gray hair.:)

It has been pretty wild - the good news is Talia has an incredible disposition, which is quite sunny.   Our kids are are giving Natasha grey hair, and the fact that they are girls is making me bald.

You haven't even made it into the double digits yet. Take this time in as best you can, there might(will) be much more trying times ahead. Though I wouldn't trade any of it I have stories of some of the shenanigans ours pulled to make all your hair fall out.

Repaired my IR T30 air compressor which has been broken for a month.

We picked up the new Boldar L1430T motor last weekend, and I spent the week tripping over it - I literally left it in the middle of the floor as a constant reminder that I needed to install it. I kept ignoring it (because I dread anything to do with household wiring) until today when my oldest daughter asked when I was going to inflate the splash pool (Natasha put her up to it). So guess what I did for about the next six hours?

I am really grateful that I spend a lot of time in the gym, because that made it pretty effortless getting the 80lb motors down and up 5+ feet off the floor.

What I am not grateful for is the motor starter I decided to add. This ate up most of the job trying to figure out how to get the damn coils to fire - Square D does not include instructions (probably a liability issue). Much smashing of my head was done over finding the correct order of wires. Thankfully I was saved by a redneck on YouTube who literally went from post to post (paint by number simplicity). Then I added a simple toggle switch, and now have ON/OFF capability - no more pulling the plug out of the wall for this guy! (at least until I need to weld something that is).

Compressed air, oh how I missed you. Even if it cost me a day of not wrenching on a car and playing with my kids.

Sure am going to enjoy sitting in the pool on the deck.

The girls were stoked when they came home to it ready to go last night.  Amazingly it is still holding air.
