I journeyed to a local bar, Blind Bear, to listen to music on Main St and could not gain entrance. I have Cerebral Palsy and drive a scooter. There was a four inch step preventing my entrance. I came home and messaged the owner of the establishment on twitter and Facebook… Read full post »

I attract weird, silly ass, exotic plants.
I love plants, I love flowers, I love to garden. One of the happiest times of my life was when I had a successful balcony garden in downtown Memphis among the cement. I grew tomatoes, roses, herbs, morning glories and… Read full post »
Beehive in Downtown Memphis
Yesterday we had a beehive in downtown Memphis. It was on the porch of an apartment building. Something in that alcove attracted a nest of bees. There were no trees or vegetation around.
Bees are very important to our society and really harmless.… Read full post »
I used to work down North Main Street and I would pass the creation of a new restaurant, Café Francisco. I would go by and see employees outside working on the building. One day I saw a woman (Julie Ray, the owner) up on a ladder, painting a coffee… Read full post »
I had a play date today. Her name is Emma. She is seven years old and is in the second grade at Dogwood Elementary. She loves milk and ice cream. She set rocks as place mats at tables in the courtyard of my apartment. As her mom and I talked and… Read full post »

I am a northerner at heart. I like my iced tea unsweet, I like my French toast with powered sugar, and when I see snow I don’t go crazy. I don’t call my elders – “Yes ma’am” or “No sir”. I call them by their given name. I despise being calle… Read full post »

Russia and Smiles
I smile a lot. I laugh a lot. It is who I am. I am a happy, positive and cheerful person. As I have been watching the 2014 Winter Olympics for 3 nights, a common trait I found among the Russians, especially the Russia ice skaters… Read full post »
There is a silver Tsunami rolling ashore in Memphis. As the years gradually progressed, more people are reaching 65 years or older, thus a silver Tsunami. It is a result of the baby boomer generation. Along with growing older, a disability may appear – a broken hip… Read full post »
I have always enjoyed learning. School was fun and later college was a enjoyable challenge. Thanks to the internet, my love for the news and the unknown, I am still on my quest to learn. When I heard a little girl was shot for wanting to learn, I was shocked.… Read full post »

The Kentucky Derby is always special to me mainly because of my grandma. Grandma and I would watch the running of the roses together. She would recommend the unique color of horse like the greys or browns to win the race, where black is the common horse color. I would laugh… Read full post »
When did my parents have the “TALK” with me?
Let’s see. When did my parents have the “talk” with me to tell me I was different and had to work harder for everything I wanted and nothing will come easy– NEVER.
The never sat me… Read full post »
I am FED UP with parents thinking its dooms day when learning the diagnosis of their child is a disability. This thinking is so wrong on so many levels. This child is a human being FIRST with a sense of humor, emotions and intelligence. Yes, they might not run… Read full post »
Holi, the Hind is customarily celebrated by people tossing colored powder and colored water at each other. It is a popular Hindu spring festival observed in India in the later part of February or in March. The tradition of frolicking with colors on Holi draws its roots… Read full post »
The month of April is National Autism Awareness Month. The best way for me to celebrate is to share, to educate, and to write - which I do best.
I understand. Autism – land of the unknown and forever a mystery. Autism – repetitive behavior, strange blunt language,… Read full post »
There is a wealth of bizarre, unique, special and otherwise different holidays. Just this month, there is National Pig Day, (Hope you had a great day Arnold Ziefell), Peanut Butter Lovers' Day, and National Anthem Day to name a few. I see nothing wrong in a day where we honored our nationa/… Read full post »

I subscribe to a Facebook page about discrimination against special needs. One woman wrote in saying the principal of her autistic son’s school called her to come get her son because he refused to wear shoes. REALLY?
I go barefoot 90% of the time. Partly because my… Read full post »
There is a 200-foot-long stuffed rabbit in the country side of Italy.
The giant bunny was created and knitted by dozens of elderly ladies using pink wool. It lies on the side of the 5,000 foot high Colletto Fava mountains in northern Italy's Piedmont region… Read full post »
