ASL Story: SanO on 6/24/07

I want to share my experience about last Sunday, June 24, 2007. John and I went to San Onofre State Beach and we were surfing there for 5 hours on fun day. Couple of hearing people are so cool to us even they were communicating with us by gesture! They treat us as we aren’t strange!

Schedule to join us at SanO with tentative dates:

July 14 or 15, and 28 or 29

Aug 11 or 12, and 25 or 26

See you at the water or sand!

The Wall Street Journal recognized SDDS!!

I was interviewed with Shefali Anand, who is a writer for the Wall Street Journal. She wrote an article called”Sign of the Times: Video, Email Are Boons to the Deaf”. We chatted through the Video Relay Service and me spoken in primary language which is American Sign Language. Then, Shefali sent me an email to ask me to check her draft on the article. I do appreciate with this person, who had been a pleasure to work with and was interested in SDDS!

Today, I read this article and I’m very pleased to see other vloggers in this article. Kudos to Jon Thompson, Chelsea Lydell, Robert Davila, Bobbie Beth Scoggins, Ms. Lydell, Tayler Mayer, Jared Evans, Gary Brooks, and Austin Andrews! I’m looking forward to see more new ASL vloggers to be recognized from a newspaper soon!

Now, I will make an announcement to have anyone who can join and hang out with us this summer. We plan on going to the San Onofre State Beach and other beaches since all of us had so much fun last year.

See you at water or sand!
