Thanks, Hans. I'll tell her. Maybe I should just show her, now that she can read it for herself! Yesterday was her last day of first grade and her Mom said she got teary eyed when it was time to leave. She has had wonderful teachers so far and this one made scrapbooks full of photographs and other things that covered high points through the entire school year. I know she spent a lot of time (and probably money) making those books and making them so personal for each child. I hope she can continue the way she has started and that her little brother will have the same teachers when he follows behind her.

Ah, to have good schaool and good, excellent and fine teachers. More even than education from the parents, another important aspect, it forms a kid, his/her interests and shapes his/her future. We must be thankful for great teachers.

Today is my daughter's 28th birthday. Gave her a card with money, a small wooden box with a Celtic knot design woodburned into the lid, and a very cute "stuffed" pig. The box and pig were made by the same person, a very dear friend who is incredibly talented!

Jenn and Mike are going out to dinner with friends tonight and then to the casino to play bingo tomorrow. She took off Thursday and Friday from work and with the Monday holiday it's been a long birthday weekend!

I have not done much.
Kibby has another field trip on Thurs. We don't have regular meetings and classes during the summer. This field trip is, for a change, close by and free. We are going to hike around an island then we are going to a near by park that has a sprinkler park in it. I like free things. I just hope we don't get any storms that day.

Thumbs up Re: What is happening

http://acb.org/adp/theatres.html
Wisconsin
• Wausau Community Theatre in Schofield provides audio description and touch tours on stage before each show as part of their Sensory Program. They also provide Sensory services to five other local arts organizations. Email the Sensory program coordinator or call (715) 370-2694. May '11 I told them about it, and I have posted Facebook and Twitter, and they thanked me.

Audio Description (AD) is the descriptive narration of key visual elements of live theatre, television, movies, and other media to enhance their enjoyment by consumers who are blind or have low vision. AD is the insertion of audio explanations and descriptions of the settings, characters, and action taking place in such media, when such information about these visual elements is not offered in the regular audio presentation

Performing Arts With Audio Description
Today many theatrical companies engage the services of trained audio describers to enhance the theatre experience for people who are blind or have low vision. The describer occasionally speaks "between the lines" to describe entrances, exits, actions, and key props to people who cannot see them. Often, before the show and during intermission, a describer "sets up" for the performance by detailing the stage layout, props, characters, and costumes. There is never any charge to the theatre patron for the use of audio description, although the theatre may pay a fee for the service.
The typical scenario for using description would be to locate a table in the theatre lobby where description equipment is being handed out. You will usually be given a small hand-held receiver about the size of a pack of cigarettes. It has an on/off switch, a volume control, and a jack for a headset, which you will also be given. headsets vary in style, and you may even prefer to bring your own.
Put the headset on and turn on the receiver as soon as you get seated, as you may find someone is describing the stage or characters for you already.
If you don't find description offered for a favorite theatre or for a specific production that you would like described, call and ask for it! The theatre will be dependent on finding local audio describers -- not always an easy task -- but there is no harm in asking. Advocate for your own needs!
Here are some of the theatres around the country that offer description. If you know of more, please advise the webmaster via the link at the bottom of the page. UPDATED MAY 2011 -- THANK YOU, CONTRIBUTORS!
(http://acb.org/adp/theatres.html, 2011)

Its partly why I wanted the Dragonsongs musical scrip and USA DVD. my new player can handle if say the , the description generally has been prerecorded and synced to the movie/TV soundtrack .ogg or .mp3 I can listen to it.

Sandi...sounds like your Grand-daughter is doing incredibly well...congratulations to her and her family for helping her to achieve all she can. She's growing up so fast...and as she grows she will learn how to work around her very individual hair part...and still manage to come up with some fairly strange hair styles in her teens...they all seem...LOL


Cilla...May girls have all the best...and very happy days.

Maelin, she already does come up with some, um, interesting hairdos at only 7. Her hair isn't as curly as it used to be and she enjoys playing with it more.

May does seem to be a good month for birthdays. My daughter's was the 22nd but she wasn't twenty, even though I think she still looks like she's not much more than that.

Mike (daughter's boyfriend) has bought a motorcycle. A Harley, which is all the men in his family ride. He's the first of his generation to own one. His dad has been riding all his life and for once is being reasonable and protective of one of his kids, insisting Mike "learn to ride properly". He even paid $1,000 toward it as Mike's graduation gift! Y'know, maybe the world did end on May 21, after all!

Still, the insurance will eat you alive. All things considered, I would go with a Harley V-Rod before a Buell...... and I really like Buell. I just think the V-Rod is better for all-around riding; more "bang for the buck."

While my own preference runs to Harley for modern production bikes, there were other brands across the years that were just as good or better. Most notably would be Indian and Henderson of the American makes, and Vincent of the British bikes. Other notable machines, past and present: Triumph, BSA, Norton, Moto Guzzi, Ducati, BMW, and Matchless. The list could go on for a long time.

As a good example, a Vincent set a land speed record in 1955 that would stand for nearly 30 years, and the company had ceased production in 1955. Harley just has staying power by comparison.

I hope I've got the right spot for a quick up date, Dan J. who had the VNS implant today, he is OK, he is spending over night just be on the safe side, he was worry for he some concerns to help control his seizures, so I'm home here with the cats, and we had a few surprise along the way. I am unwinding, the last few weeks have been stressfull, it been an up and down weekend, for both of us. Its nice to have the place to myself. Outrside of having a problem in the bath room. I had to contact some I was able to 'think of who to call'

We had some stormy issue over the last few weeks, and the stress was making me unable to sleep, but some how a miss communicate, or two can make things backfire, and I think I've found a way around it.

We went out for a date, for the first Sun in June is when I moved in with him. Its also the fly-in at Wild Rose, and somehow we pick a bad spot and it trigger a bad 'flash attack' a spot that they know about but don't know why it miss-fires, I've had seizures, between the moment or something, I got a long sectopmt of lash in my eye, painful, and I was muddle from the 'fash attack', also I can't see out it, but with the problems, it could realy damage my sight, the medication is working and I'm not as much in pain as I was.

Thanks goodness, for I'm feeling the pull, from having my arms bend, like a L trying to aid Dan J., but its for a good cause, I'm getting the housework, taking care of Dan J, and working on a few projects.

Being a diabetic, the rolls ( sound great) and the Dark chocolate are Sorry to say not a daily option for me. The Liver would be OK once in a while. I think I will stick with a nice multi-vitamin. Boring, I admit but much faster, and less problems.

world are you going to do when August comes around...well
other than melt that is...

It's been a beautiful 80 to 85 here...just perfect for our spring
and my new garden.

I will admit *Muggy* added to any kind of real heat and I would be
melting too......Hope you get a little cool down soon.

Temps here started getting into the mid to upper 90's before May was over. It really is hot. Today was 97. Seems more like August than the beginning of June!

Doing everyday stuff - w**k, Family History, etc.

A friend at w**k has written a young adult book (hopefully trilogy) which is being published later this year. Knowing I'm a big reader and an Anne collector he's asking my opinion on all sorts of things - synopsis and illustration on the book cover, changes re the required amendments, etc.

I've also mentioned I know another author too (Lanen of course )

I don't know about him but I'm getting really excited

What have I gotten into?

You are now reading the words of the PTO President for the 2011-2012 school year. Means we need to come up with money raisers and teacher appreciation stuff and chaperoning dances...
