A real “blink. blink.” moment.

Tom Delay says that people are unemployed because they want to be and that extending unemployment benefits discourages people from looking for jobs. Wow. I can’t say that the people I have known to have lost their jobs decided, one day, that they wanted to be unemployed. I can’t say that at all. I’m so glad I’m an Independent.

A really great iphone/ipod app

Proloquo2go is an app that helps kids who have speech disabilities to communicate. Speech pathologists are really excited about its availability because it is loaded onto iphones and ipods, making it more portable and cutting its cost to about a tenth of its usual price.  I know that in recent months, I’ve been introduced to all kinds of apps. Apps that help one judge the “cuteness” of people in a bar using biometrics, apps that help set up booty calls, political satire on the verge of being offensive apps. How great is it that the affordability of this technology can help so many more children to interact with the world around them!

Now THAT’s a flowerbed!

Someday, if I work really hard… and save up my money for a landscaper, YEAH. LOL. My azaleas and rhododendrons are back in action, and there may even be hope for my miniature tea roses, but maybe I’ll put something in there. In the past I’ve had daisies and other stuff, but maybe something different this year. Hmmm. First I have to weed and redo the soil. Then I get my plants and it’s on to the veggies!
