    On lipreading and signing with bifocals, trifocals or progressive eyeglasses.

    Hi all, I know I haven't been around for awhile, been busy being stressed out. :eek3: And the fun continues -- I just snapped my eyeglasses in half. Fortunately I can get new eyeglasses with insurance but unfortunately I can't get the same kind -- progressive eyeglasses. I will have to...

    I Cooked Vegetarian Tonight -- My Cat is P-O!

    One of my cats is pacing back and forth in front of the kitchen sink throwing dirty looks at me. I just finished cooking and I only made vegetarian dishes tonight. No meat, chicken or fish tidbits for her. That is what she usually gets when I do my marathon cooking once or twice a week...

    Deadline is Noon, December 15 EST: NYC Casting Director Looking for ASL Signers

    Hi, I'm posting this for a friend: That's all I know and, no, I don't know why there is so little lead time. I do know who Timothy is though and I think you can all be comfortable that he is not doing this to collect e-mail addresses and spam you. He probably got the request because he...

    House Flies: Evolution in Action in My Apt.

    Somehow my apt. got infested with houseflies. My two cats are usually very good at killing the odd bug or flea but they are useless right now. I suppose they are either on strike or have decided to adopt the pests as pets. :mad: Nothing works more than once. I put out a container of...

    Post Thanksgiving Musings

    Just a few random musings -- == I went to a relatively small Thanksgiving celebration with eight people. As long as I had line of sight, by combining lip-reading with my hearing aids I understood most of what was being said most of the time. I even understood the two 6 year olds...

    Inside Job -- 2008 Global Economic Crisis

    I just finished watching the movie, "Inside Job." Deaf Caroline had suggested it in another thread for anyone who wanted to better understand the causes of the 2008 financial crisis. I admit I checked it out two weeks ago from my library but kept delaying watching it because I assumed it...

    Another Reason To Sign

    I went to an HLAA meeting tonight and chatted afterwards with someone fairly new to hearing loss. One of the things we talked about was how differently Hearing and HH people hear and communicate. For me, life-long HH person, this is based on a lot of speculation. For her, life-long hearing...

    Using ASL Unexpectedly

    I worked yesterday for the Board of Elections as a poll worker. I mostly do that to help monitor how the new style machines are working. * It turned out that one of the voters was deaf, I asked her if she signed and I was able to have a short conversation with her. She was stunned, she was...

    How many ASL numbers should I be able to “receive” in a row?

    At this web site: asl.bz I’m having trouble “receiving” numbers that are 4 digits or longer correctly. Up to 3 digits I usually have no problems. I’m doing much better with “receiving” fingerspelled words at asltrainer.com. I think that's because I’m sounding off the letters to myself...
