Tousi, or ? ;) ... I'm not visiting, but will stay here for a while. That door to Norway is closed forever. The last time I have been to that school was a sport tournament between my school and that school in '97 or so. I haven't run into the aftementioned person yet. I'm sorry to hear about your friend's medical issue, but the beaches are wonderful here!

I am new to this site but belong to ALDA Suncoast, they have meetings down in Seminole and activites, also browse Deaf Services, also belong to Hearing Loss Association of America, mainly to get their magazine. Starbucks has deaf coffee nights everywhere so just goggle "Starbuck Deaf Coffee".. I like ALDA although I do not go to their new meeting place because of the distance from where I live and work concerns. However, ALDA has a once a month Sunday dinner at Perkins in Clearwater, deaf coffee nights at Starbucks, monthly birthday lunches etc. Depends on whether you work or not...I do and cannot go to everything but have met some pretty great people. Also the llibrary at Safety Harbor and Palm Harbor have sign classes weekly and my friend from ALDA gives a sign class near me. I live in New Port Richey.

And yes, this area is full of deaf and HOH people, more than you could possibley imagine.

I don't know much with the Tampa area - only little but maybe suggest you to start with the deafies who live in that area especially the SPCC (St. Petersburg Community College) where there are some deaf students.

Hope that any AD member from Tampa Bay area could come and help you out... or try the Google yourself (deaf, tampa into search box) at deaf, tampa - Google Search

Welcome to Florida in case if you guys decide to move there. Good luck!

Would love to meet some of you if there's a chance. :D

fsd isnt all that great. every year they just add more rules making it more of a prison and such. i was lucky to get out when i did last year. unless you're gonna break some rules and be a rebel like i was then you're just gonna live in seclusion and boredom.

florida doesnt have anything cool that i know of... if anyone knows anything around orlando area hit it up, ill def come and chill

I would agree with that part about rules and all that. I was there for 7th grade for 2 months, then tried again for 8th grade and made it one whole year there, then after that.. Never again. I went to Mainland High School and mainstream with interpreter and it all went well.

By the way I have live in Daytona Beach all my life and pretty much there are lot deaf people, but they are HIDING. :giggle::laugh2:
