    I don't do this, but I have a friend on FB that does this all the time. Well, now I have two FB friends that do it now that JClarke has joined the Geocaching fun. I may try it sometime, but all I have is an iPhone 4 which may not be accurate or even capable of this at all.

    Linguistics and ASL

    Here's something else - inflections. Latin is highly inflected. Modern English has only eight inflections, which are hold overs from Middle English. Here's my next question: do you think ASL is highly inflective or not? Examples? I'm very curious to know.

    Will the new health exchanges cover HAs?

    I think the insurance companies should be required to cover at least half the cost of HAs, especially those who depend on them to succeed on the job and/or in the classroom. Thank goodness there are places such as the Starkey Foundation and VRS that help to cover some of the cost to low-income...

    Best Deaf Friendly Restaurants

    I don't eat out often, but it is good to have that occasional prepared meal some too. Today I got lucky and my subway sandwich was paid for by my mom as a small treat for me and my daughter. This doesn't happen often. The last time we ate out was probably last summer. Every meal since then has...

    Target shoppers debit/credit cards potentially compromised

    The only way your bank information is kept private when shopping is to pay in cash or in gift cards. Any other method has your information floating around in cyberspace.

    Teacher in Colorado arrested for asking for topless photos

    Guys, just stop arguing with hoichi. You are just talking in circles and this thread has run its course. I believe the teacher is in the wrong and even if it might not be illegal, it is definitely unethical for a teacher to ask for such photos. You can lose your teaching license permanently...

    What drinking over 30 beers a day does to you

    Looks like one of my neighbors. She is a severe alcoholic and she is constantly in and out of the hospital. It is not uncommon for the ambulance to come pick her up at least once or twice a month. She is very thin, here teeth are bad, and she has all sorts of other problems. The sad part is when...

    The Polar Vortex Sequel

    Well that means everyone will be returning to the milk and egg sandwiches here in Arkansas. If the temperature drops below freezing for a daytime high, everyone here loses their freaking mind!

    What do you do when you are bored?

    I don't have time to be bored. Although if I have the time, I will lay down for a 45 minute nap here and there.

    What do you hoard/collect?

    Books. I am a bibliophile. Unfortunately they are still sitting in the bins I placed them in when I moved and I have been looking for a free or cheap bookshelf to put them in and free up much needed closet space. They've been waiting for a bookshelf for about two years now... Poor books.

    What are you thinking about? Part VI

    I have been away this past week focusing on academia. I met another deafie yesterday, CI-user. It was very nice to talk to someone that understands for a change. Turns out this deafie studies film at UCA in Conway which is a little over an hour from my university. We made plans to meet again in...

    How many of you shop at small businesses for everyday needs?

    We aren't even allowed to plant little hanging gardens here because "it poses a safety hazard".

    Another question: Are registered sex offenders allowed on here?

    True, but they are usually high functioning, which means they can appear to be completely normal to the average person. They are usually well liked by other people which is why they are the least suspected people in your community. For example, most children are targeted by people they know...
