    Enjoy the Sweetness of Donuts with Breakfast Catering Service - My Shipley Donuts

    Isn't there anybody around to censor/get rid of spam/marketing posters? With that said, I all of the sudden find myself craving some chocolate donuts... Mmmm... With nuts sprinkled on top. It's a good thing almost nobody sells donuts with nut sprinkles anymore! -Aquaman

    Really BAD Gas Mileage

    8.3 MPG average city and freeway driving the last few hundred miles... Dodge Viper. From my OBDII Monitor. 19 gallon gas tank and I find myself looking for a gas station after just 110-130 miles... But the smiles per miles are worth it! -Aquaman

    Deaf Dating Sites?

    Came on here to see if there were indeed any bonafide deaf dating sites that weren't crawling with bots and fake profiles. Doesn't sound promising. 15 year relationship coming to an end now. I think I'll stick with the proven but true method of: Look for it in the real world. Give up after a...

    Enrolling KODAs in a State Deaf School's PreSchool Program?

    Kid #C started preschool on Monday. Kid #B starts next month. Kid #A starts in 2 months. The school did not want to take in all three at once and wanted to stagger them each a month apart. That was not something I agreed with, but since it's a private school, they get to make their own...

    authentic goes surfing....

    Yes, I plan to come for that deaf surf contest at Huntington Beach. I then have the Coeur d'Alene Ironman triathlon race the following weekend in Idaho so I won't be staying at Huntington Beach past the contest. Just showing up for the contest and then leaving right after. I fly to San Jose...

    authentic goes surfing....

    Here's some pictures from last week at Pipeline on the North Shore of Oahu to keep this thread alive. I'm in the middle of the photo waiting for the big one that's rearing up right behind me. Catching and dropping on a big one. Getting barreled: Swallowed up...

    authentic goes surfing....

    More surf updates? How's the gopro working out for you? The north shore on Oahu, Hawaii has been pumping and serving up world-class waves this winter. Overhead, double, triple and even quadruple overhead waves all the time. Been getting a lot of big waves! Here's the forecast for...

    Enrolling KODAs in a State Deaf School's PreSchool Program?

    FINAL RESULTS Our triplets didn't qualify for anything. Evaluation results showed that they were indeed extremely delayed with their verbal language skills (estimated 50 verbal words on average when they should be approaching nearly 900 now) and evaluation results stated that they should...

    Enrolling KODAs in a State Deaf School's PreSchool Program?

    This thread isn't tool "old" yet. We are in full swing of all the tests and assessments by the Department of Education. IEP eligibility meeting will be in 3 weeks. ESLTeacher, Regarding English as a Second Language... If our kids get labeled as ESL kids, they automatically are not...

    Enrolling KODAs in a State Deaf School's PreSchool Program?

    That's great about FSDB! There's also a deaf school in Utah that does, or did this as well. I'm looking more into it this week. Yup, they have three strikes against them compared to a normal kid as I see it based on my research. 1. Preemies typically are developmentally delayed...

    Enrolling KODAs in a State Deaf School's PreSchool Program?

    Hi all, Stepped away for a moment (or a couple of months) but I'm back. JadeSkye, valid questions, which has mostly been very nicely answered by Fulminty. All the recent research (and workshops the past 2 weeks in fact) have been extolling the importance of having a solid primary...

    Enrolling KODAs in a State Deaf School's PreSchool Program?

    Nearest one is over 3,000 miles away so no, that's not an option. You are probably right in both respects and that's what the majority say as well. Not being able to get them enrolled into an ASL immersion program for preschool was also my gut reaction as well when the idea first came up...

    Enrolling KODAs in a State Deaf School's PreSchool Program?

    Tousi, it does not need to be nerve loss, there are students with zero nerve loss that are enrolled in deaf schools across the United States. There are other auditory issues or processing issues that could make a child eligible to attend a deaf school. However, I understand your point. It's...
