Deaf Pie Happy Hour has come back, much to the
joy of deaf people that love pies!

IMPOSSIBLE JOB INTERVIEW
It happened many years before ADA. A
deaf person, looking for a job, was
given an interview by an impatient,
fast-talking boss.
The interview was a joke. The boss
talked very fast, impossible for the
deaf person to understand.
Then the boss stopped, shook hands
with the deaf person and led him out of
the office.
What happened? Deaf person still didn’t
know what happened!

TTY WAS A LUCKY INVENTION
TTY was popular in the Deaf Community from the seventies
through the nineties.
It was a lucky invention. Why? Robert Weitbrecht, a deaf
man, loved to hike in the mountains in California. He
was hiking with a hearing friend. During the hike, another
group came nearby. A woman in that group overheard Weitbrecht’s
oral deaf voice and knew he was deaf. She came to him and
introduced herself as a mother of a deaf son.
Both groups chatted for a while, and Weitbrecht told the
woman that he loved to work on old TTY machines for radio
ham communications. She asked him – why not change the
radio ham TTY machine to deaf TTY machine?
The rest is history!

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
Shopping lists
Creating a shopping list is getting harder for me to read,
even when I use black markers.
Other people in the house write with light colored pens or pencils.
Those lists are invisible to me!? That is why I write over them with
black markers!
If you have an iPad or an iPhone, you can make your own list stand out!
Go to “Notes” and title it “Shopping List”.
You can type in your shopping needs and return anytime to add more
to the list.
Then, when you are ready to send it to your spouse, or friends, or family,
etc. simply click the to compose email icon.
Add in the email address and send!
It is very accessible!
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
