macaton and bliss symbols are not just for the deaf and blind.macaton is a simplified vertion of sign language used universally for mentally disabled,bliss symbols is a bord with various pictures on depicting differant things for peole who also have limited use of their hands(so can not sign) and can not talk to get their point across.bsl stands for british sign language which is a three in one comunication consisting of sign,lipreading and reading facial expressions.when someone who is deaf is lip reading a part of the lip reading comes from guess work as there are some words which when said produce the same form of the lips,which you can usually guess which one iit is by the contact of the rest of the sentance.that is why when you see someione doing sign they often accentuate their facial expression to get their point better across when they are lip reading.there are over rules to observe as well,like looking the person in the face so they can see your lips fully and clearly,no turning sideways or your back on them.keeping you lip area clear,i.e.no too long a mistache that can hide the form of the top lip,no newspaper in the way,don磘 put your hand infront of your face or to brush your hair out of your eyes with your arm hiding your lips.no newspapers orbooks hiding your lips etc.speak slowly(but not too slowly they are deaf not stupid)and clearly forming your words.use facial expressions to get your point across.pageant gordon is an advance form of sign language where you don磘 just use the finger of your hand but also the seperate digits on your fingers to repersent full stop,commas etc.translaters use it for court,driving test etc,for test in university etc.now that i would really love to learn.sign language are also differant in differant countries.in britain we use the two hand nethod,the left hand normally being what we call the blackboard hand and the right hand being what is called the penhand.in canada for example and i believe in america as well they use the one hand system for sign.also you have to be careful because some signs can have a differant conitation in another country.for example the bsl sign for loud if you did it to a german deaf person they would get offended as that sign in german sign language means you are crazy.i.e you are calling the person you are signing to crazy.

EVER-HOPEFUL - Sue Thomas is a deaf lady, who has
a golden retriever guide dog named Levi. She is a
very caring lady, who got a job at the F.B.Eye.
She joined a small team of investigators there, and
is quite helpful to the team ! Sue can lip-read, as
well as sign !
The show is always pleasant, and has a happy ending !

of course i did do you think i want everyone to know,that is why they were so expensive.can磘 say i have heard of tri focals though.

i am abit on tenderhooks at the moment ayman is getting operated on right at this moment in tunisia and i am not there for him,i know lotfi and all his family are there so it should be ok but still with my experiance of hospitals i am worried.it is natural.hope i hear from them before i have to go out at 1 to the hospital for my check up.there always seems to be something.

how磗 things with you all?ok i hope.hope you are all letting your fit girls shine through.

I know what you mean about the glasses! We get to pay to feel older than we are!

I have actually had a few day off from work! But, I go back tomarrow night, overnight. Kinda nervous, because I don't know what next weeks schedule brings!!! We'll see. I am training a new employee for overnights this week. My daughter starts back to school next wednesday!!! She is so excited! We are taking her to visit her school today as it is a new school, she is moving up to this one from elementary!!! My younger daughter is so mad/jealous! She wants to go to school!!! But her birthday misses the cut off so she doesn't go until next fall!


Sooooo............ how's everyone else's start to September going???
