I had one of those annoying cold calls - even though I am registered with the Telephone Preference Service and am not supposed to keep getting pestered. The man 'phoning was trying to get me interested in claiming for compensation for hearing damage caused by working in a noisy environment. 'Is that you?' he asked wondering and expecting that to be a description of my work experience. 'No,' I said. 'I have always worked in quiet places.' And that was that.

Here is a picture of a place where I have conducted a lot of my work.
