Wow! I can't even believe I haven't written in September. Well, for the last 10 or 12 days I have been listening to free internet lectures on Neuro Linguistic Programming. I took notes. I do want to react or not react or respond to Anonymous about "free matter for the blind." It has been a staple of postal regulations for blind people from a blind person or organization to an organization or blind person and may be under attack, as it has been before. I want to find the applicable federal scope of the language, and post it here for your edification.I remember going to Sail when Chava Lee, I believe was working for SAIL (Southeast Alaska Independent Living) and many people did not know about it. Another thing that you may not know about is taht disabled parking placards can be purchased by blind people because the language by the Department of Public Safety (I believe) states that people who use canes, crutches, and such can have one. Thanks to former Senator Judy Salo. We had to revisit that in 2002, I believe wen people were being questioned. Thanks to Frank haas who in 1994 brought this to our attention to act upon. Frank Haas was also the one to move us towards accessible balloting for voting. Hence, the Frank Haas act, HB 320 in 2002 was worked out with four legislative aides, Janet Kkowalski, (From the Division of Elections at the time) and Alaska Independent Blind. I want to acknowledge Bobby McMullen who came to Alaska to showcase his blind racing and the movie about it, and four of us who blindness and visual impairments went tandem biking a couple of weeks ago. I have gone on two interviews for positions, none of which panned out, and one I wanted and one I did not really like, but both had good interviewers, and good questions, and likable people. I don't know what to do about much. Dad is selling the house, after all. I wrote for the ai-class about the web-based artificial intelligence class, and the Stamford University does not say that it is not fully accessible. Amazing that some of the images are not accessible. I was voted as Treasurer of Blind Information Technology Specialists. I'll learn about payPal and also about tracking bills and deposits and all that. My spiritual school, of sorts has changed the website, and now I cannot get into classes, modules or anything except the forum. My oldest friend has just gotten on to Skype, and I've been talking to my son's dad about Europe when we went in 1973. It was the first time we saw something like computerized cassette machines, and I suppose there were cassettes in 1973? I don't remember when those became the standard instead of reel to reel tapes. Anyway, when going forward and backward, they would announce the chapters and it was not just a beep. We also saw accessible currency in the Netherlands, and that was great. We went to the dog guide school, where they only used mixed breeds and females. I have a picture of the bikerider and me, but I am not sure how to paste it on here. Hmm. Maybe I'll try that nexttime.
