    CVS to win big by stop selling cigarettes

    I go through this every month. My doctor use to have everyone sign a contract to use only one pharmacy and if you used a different pharmacy you would be dropped. This made it so they could monitor if you were getting multiple scripts each month now you have to go from Pharmacy to Pharmacy to...

    Question for girls.. would you ever date an ARAB guy?

    I agree with some of the post.. people in general can be jerks. I was in a long term relationship with an Arabic Man from UAE and for most of the relationship I was treated better than I had ever been treated by any guy. He was a Muslim but that really did not affect our relationship. I did have...

    My daughter's ASL teacher assigns a project every other week and the final (ASL 1) is to interpret, gloss and perform a song in ASL. From what I hear is pretty common so be prepared for all kinds of "help me gloss this" request come April or May.

    Does an orange band ties around a tree means it will be cut down??

    If the area is marked for clearing the orange band means the tree is not going to be cut down. They only mark the trees to save not the trees that will be cut down.

    Be careful buying/selling on craigslist

    Thank you. I am hoping the police are able to find them too. It was obvious by how fast they were and by how they had everything planned that this wasn't their first rodeo! The physical injuries have healed but he keeps playing it over and over in his head. He keeps telling me that if he saw it...

    deafness as a turn on

    Laura I was about to say the same thing. Just because I can hear (some sounds) doesn't mean I understand. I hate when I ask someone what was said and no one wants to tell me or they rapidly say it knowing there is no way I can understand. Sadly I am still trying to adjust to this life so I had...

    Annoying ignorant hearing people stories

    Kik I am not saying that your only form of communication is pointing.... it is the only communication most of them will understand for the most part. I really think some of them are scared to try to communicate simply because they don't understand how.

    Annoying ignorant hearing people stories

    Please let me clear one thing up. As HOH Adult Onset I can explain why the fast food restaurants give the "Braile" Menu to deaf people. They are told to do so. (I know I was) It is supposed to be a Deaf and Blind Menu. It is assumed that a deaf person has read the menu that is usually behind the...
