I heard that, pardon!

20120316_gaes The Department of Social Welfare in Bigastro invites all the citizens of the municipality to take a free hearing test courtesy of GAES. Tests will take place on Wednesday, March 21 in the auditorium of the Integrated Social Centre, during office hours 10:30 to 13:30  and in the afternoon between 16:00 and19:00.

Last time Pam and I went for one of these free tests, the lady told Pamela she had the hearing of a 20 year old. She told me that I had some loss of hearing in the right ear but that no corrective measures were necessary.

You can test your hearing online courtesy of Lloyds at this site. All you need is a computer with an internet connection, a sound card and a pair of headphones. The test which takes about five minutes or so consists of bursts of sound at different frequencies first in one ear and then the other. You click you mouse each time that you hear the sound until the point where it become inaudible.

Just for Pete who may well remember the TV series from whence the catchphrase came: of the three great aunts from Glossop, "You can allus tell when they're coming, cause t'water curdles in t'goldfish bowl"
