I saw this quote the other day: “worry is the darkroom in which negatives are developed.” Isn’t that so true?

We all remember this silly song from our childhood. Well with the holiday season upon us once again I thought that I would write my blog post on some of the new toys that will be on my letter to Santa this year, and for those of you that say that Santa is not real, all that I have to say to you is, if you believe in the magic of Christmas then he most certainly is. After all, don’t we all still have a little boy or girl in all of us.
The economy is not good, people are out of jobs, there have been several natural disasters in our country over the last nine months or so, the latest being the flooding in New York and New Jersey. At the same time, there has been a presidential campaign going on. Wouldn’t it have been fantastic if all of those campaign funds were put in other places, where they could have done some real good?
The 26th Amendment of the United States Bill of Rights states that individuals 18 years of age or older have the right and opportunity to vote. On Tuesday, November 6, 2012, voters will go to the polls to elect a new President. We all have the right to vote. However, in years past, it has been quite difficult for a member of the blind community to participate in such an important event without the aid of a sighted individual. Today, in the 21st century, this is no longer the case. As a member of the blind community, what is your reason for not voting?
Do you live in an area where hurricanes can pass through, wreaking havoc as they pass on by? Though I do live in such a place, being in the northeast portion of the United States, somehow it is still surprising when the meteorologists tell us that a hurricane is coming, and we need to prepare.
Being normal is quite boring! Most people think that normal means a white picket fence, 2.5 children and a house on the hill. What they don’t mention is the tons of debt or that miserable job and the crazy spouse. This is normal for most folks. Being blind adds a whole other level of complexity, but we still don’t have to be normal. In this post I’ll give you some tips on how to be excellent and live a life that is filled with passion, creativity and pleasure.
It was not that long ago that, if we wanted to check our email, surf the internet, or type up a document, we had to go home or to the office, and sit down in front of our computers. With the introduction of lap-tops, computing became portable but still a bit cumbersome, carrying them around in briefcases or in their own dedicated cases. But all that has changed with the use of smart phones, tablets, and iOS devices.
There are times when it takes every muscle in my body to throw off the covers and crawl out of bed. The reason is not because I don’t want to get up or that I am not feeling well. The real reason for this action is because I am simply depressed. I cannot give you a straight forward answer about what triggers my depression. It could be as simple as McDonald’s screwed up my order for the millionth time. I’m a woman who suffers with menopause. Or that my life didn’t exactly turn out the way I thought it would. The truth of the matter is that my depression is mostly caused by the fact that I am blind! Can being blind cause depression?
When you are typing text you’ll have an insertion point. Now weather or not its at the beginning or end of a edit field is the question. The insertion point is where the cursor is. It visually is flashing waiting for your next key press, but sometimes on iOS I have to switch from one app to another and this often leaves me coming back to an app and not knowing where the cursor is. In this Quick Tip I’ll show you how to quickly find out where your insertion point is, so you can make as few errors as possible.
