    problems with english expression or idioms

    On my wife's side of the family, half of the deaf people are like that. I have to leave out idioms & big words and keep it simple with them, otherwise I will be repeating myself constantly. Even using idioms or big words with ASL doesn't help. My closest deaf friends are not like that, even...

    So lonely..

    True, however, most people are social creatures and need socialization. Deaf folks like you and I have learned over the years to adapt and find other ways to keep ourselves entertained.

    A Motorcycle Thread About Absolutely Nothing!

    Been a couple months since I was able to ride in decent weather. Took the DL out of the garage, donned my new heated liner & gloves, and rode 50 miles in the afternoon. 43 degrees and sunny today. Going to get a lot of snow on Monday, so grabbed the chance. Took these shots with my smartphone:

    Not sure what to do

    This. Saavik: Don't take it as a personal attack on you....take it as advice. My observation: Most people who have a hard time connecting with others usually have some kind of social disorder....there are many, many underlying reasons. You are working with a counselor, which is a great...

    How to fix jammed garbage disposal

    I assume you want to re-use the cord since you got another disposal that is designed to be hard-wired? If you really want to re-use it, use a screwdriver and force the clip out of there, then pull the clip apart....try not to cut the wire. If you do damage the wire, can cut it, separate the...

    Did you know?

    Very true, but I think that is only half the reason.....the other half is because today's generation of children do not give a crap. Parents either are too overworked to care, or as I have seen, don't give a crap either. As a teacher, you should know.....after all, how many parents showed up...

    How to fix jammed garbage disposal

    Now that I got some sleep, I woke up and realized that I said the wrong stuff to you, went back and corrected what I said. On all disposals, the top connector is for dishwasher hookups, the second lower hole is for the drainpipe. If you remove the disposal, you can get a $4 'Y' pipe and put...

    How to fix jammed garbage disposal

    The black flex pipe entering the top of the disposal is the dishwasher drainpipe, and it is secured at a high point. The little valve on the lower left is the dishwasher hookup. Notice the short upright copper tube? That is a water hammer arrestor, be glad you have one. Only issue I see is...
