Today Is The First Day That...

Today is the first day that my ears have stopped ringing following the Linkin Park Concert last Thursday. Gosh, six days. It certainly was a loud concert. Glad to have the irritating ringing gone I must say.

Tonight I was invited to the opening of Siemens' office in Perth. They had about six offices previously but have now opened one to do the job. It was rather funny that two people I met were from opposition companies, one of which I was unaware of previously. Bit of an awkward moment there especially as I knew neither of them beforehand. Met quite a few people from Siemens which was useful as my contacts within that organisation prior to tonight were in Melbourne. I even had a chat with the managing director and CEO of Siemens Australia and New Zealand. He was rather interested in what I had to say too. Nice to have the ear of someone important in the company. Actually met a couple of people whom I had dealt with on the phone only and so it was very nice to meet in person.

Can't say much for the food. There's only so many servings of leek and mozzarella, salmon and caviar, octopus, lamb and couscous along with delightful chicken and drinks that you can put up with. Who am I trying to kid? The food was wonderful. Just don't tell my wife or she'll be horribly disappointed. All her hard work in getting me learned up and I'm reaping the benefits, not her. Well, she benefits by me having a good job. Good night actually.

Ringing in your ears? Try loud buzzing, ringing, and a noise akin to heavy truck traffic ALL the time. The level of sound varies from day to day.

Cool the Siemens are very nice people. I had one of them as my Chemistry professor in College. That food sounds great. You may want to buy some ear drops to soothe your ears. That is good music. I had Beef Wellington steak at a party last night. That is good too. I love exotic food too. You have made me hungry. Have a great day. Keep up the good work. That is great you got to try all of that!! Annette

I did a training course at the Siemens building in Melbourne a few years back just after it was completed. They would not let us look around as they were still working on all the security clearances for their own workers. But I must say, the canteen there was superb.
