Default Update, Dan J. and I, much more.

I can't wait till Mon. my birthday, I've got a 'lessons' in getting around safer, by my self in the morning out side using my ears more than my eyes, and the 'loan' of a CCTV, which should I hope let do some work, that I've got on hold, my father is driving up, to see Dan J. and I , which is for we have see them 'crafty grandmother', who the same age as Anne McCaffrey in July, 85 she is fighting with

PS the extra sparkles some folks post do make hard for me to see, when I do get back online

Got a few things marked so after the paint dries I well be able to tell were somethings are via my fingers. I'm working on via a cctv trying to time a trip for Mon. planing on using the bus, which might take me longer to get to and from home to stop depending on the weather and lighting.

Marked dried fine, now I can tell on somethings, haven't check on another thing thing that was marked, beein doing some thinking, getting ready for being 'out and about' three buses to and from home, and timing is going to be fun, not.

Cane traninn, OK , and its harder then it was before the 'sun glare', was light blinding me most of the way to and from, on the way back, I had to stop and rest, also take my drops for my 'dry eye' while I was walking, like I had one too many to drink, but that is why I need the second suport cane. More later.

Are you using dark glasses? I can't get sunglasses with my prescription but I have a pair that go over my normal glasses. I find that a hat can help when the sun is bright too.

Try polarized lenses for glare. They usually don't have to be as dark.

I shall have to look into it, I wanted to answer you early on but, my system was give me a hissy fit. Along with a bad Thunderstorm.

This morning before it got too bad. Did some 'white cane' traning, on a few sections that were giving me 'glare' problems, but the heat and humid weather, knida zapped me.

I've been doing mobilty training around our new area, now I've found a way that might be a tad longer but safer for me, go to and from our home. Only one block no sidewalks, the rest have sidewalks.

After we got some house work done, stoped here to update, and just a wee bit cooler, then when I took my nap. but still hot.

had my Book Port Plus, http://shop.aph.org/webapp/wcs/store...0P_10001_11051 out, and about dropped it, lucky for me it didn't loose the Digital Talking Books from National Library Service (NLS). These books include both downloaded titles, that I had attached, for I had three AMC books, and some other odd and ends on it.

Digital Talking Book Cartridge This blank cartridge is for use with the National Library Service (NLS) Digital Talking Book Player. If formated right it can hold up to 20 bookshttps://shop.aph.org/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?productId=288401&langId=-1&storeId=10001&catalogId=11051

It got a work out, this pass week, 'irking' when I've been using staff drop off then take a bus to and from, home to were the office that adding me started July 5, and can't find some 'flaming paper work' to get my fare reduced, but I was able to get hold my bus pass which if my adding is right I've just about paid for it. $15 US dollars, .60 cents one way ask for a tranfer, or if used transfer, paid .60 to get home.

My self I think I have problems with other things but the images of the clips have given me a few idea, for keeping headphone on while using the Book Port Plus, see post below, has given me food for thought.

This week, I'm having two folks who know how to program go over my computer, with a fine tooth comb, so I'm unsure if I'm going to online much, or if I'm I'm working with some else, so I thought I update you folks.

I've been testing a program called JAWS - Job Access With Speech. and/or MAGic® from Freedom Scientific http://sales.freedomscientific.com/ the two are a demo and run in 40 min, then having to restart the demo, Also keyboard shortcuts more than I use to.

My screen reading software has to learn, how to get around the links, it slowing learing, but its starting to drive me batty, that is why I keep pop in and out and sometime not having time to log out.

Its going to nutty for a while and busy, for we are having problem with public transportation, and that its going to take me longer to explain this. Busy in real life

My computer is going to be worked on, 11-11-11 so I'm not going to be able to use internet till I get fixed, might be a few days without it, so game requests are going to have to wait

To the vets, I hope this day is special, for you served, and now you our respect, I wish what I 'see' in my would translated better, its frustrating to 'see' and then unable to translate to communicate how I 'feel'
