Deaf, ASL, captioned, funny video logs (VLOG)

The good news is that some of the issues causing stress around here are resolving. I'm still having other stress due to the backlog that has built up in other projects, but I'm so glad for all the great friends and support I've had. There's light at the end of the tunnel.

Since I don't watch TV, often the way I kick back and try to relax is just try to address some emails and also continue to try to self tutor in learning ASL, not that it's very useful for me, since few people I know use it. However it is a beautiful language and the skill of some that use ASL just knocks me off my feet (OMG, I'll never get to be half that good!)

For example, I've been trying to follow along with noncaptioned ASL videos at random, at YouTube, and while I'm not doing so hot... I discovered one lady who blogs with video (VLOG) and uses ASL. A few of her best and funniest VLOGs are also text enabled with open captions. Happy Hands (her handle) is not deaf, nor is she CODA (child of deaf adults) but she's immersed in ASL, is very expressive and quite an inspritation. I won't be up to her caliber any time soon but here are a couple of her VLOGs that really cracked me up. :)

Ask my husband, I'm one of those people that really JUMP when startled, so the following VLOG hit close to home. :D





Now the VLOG that follows is just amazing! Our story teller's expression is one thing by itself, but the story probably added years to my life due to all the laughing I did!



That's all for now!

Hello
Sorry I guess I jumped the gun with the offer to help....I can't figure out how to e-mail you directly...my husband is a firefighter and has been gone and I just spoke with him about the foster care, we are currently looking to buy a female pup to protect our new family, we have a two year old and a 6 week old sons, I thought it would be a good idea to have the dog for the little boy but my husband thinks he and our son would get attached to the dog, I'm very sorry....hope he gets someone to care for him.

Toni, that's really okay.

If you'd ever like more info on the breed, see the rest of my website. I only have a rescue (Molly) with an unknown background and Bella here right now that need homes, but if you'd like some breed info and to meet other Anatolians in your area, just check out the rest of my website and I can send you more info about what you might be getting into, to have an Anatolian. I do have an email form here.

This can be a difficult breed to own, due to their independence. I have lots of pics of Anatolians with kids though. :) Here.
