Cochlear & Cappuccino machine

Weird. Normally I turn on my cappuccino machine in the morning, turn on my lights for my plants and work my way back to the kitchen to make my mochaccino. This time I was doing some dishes instead, and the light went off on my machine. I heard some kind of soft chiming sound and looked around, but couldn't figure out what it was. Next thing I know, the light on the machine comes back on and I hear that sound again, and it dawned on me my machine makes sounds other than the hissing and steaming sounds. Never realized it had more than just an on off light.

I forgot to mention at yesterdays dinner, I had turned my hearing aid thing to a focused (triangle shape) setting, so I have the noise slightly lessened in the background. Worked ok. I was able to catch most of what was said at the table which was a huge change for me. NICE!! And my back wasn't against a wall either, which is the prefered way of sitting for hearing impaired people. Lessens surrounding noises. It was also nice to under stand what the waitress said was the special of the day. I never could understand that and it used to frustrate me to no end.

OK that's it till later.
