D AND THE DEAF
    3D is very hot in the computer world. Everyone wants
3D. They think 3D can build anything.
    Can 3D implant a CI for the deaf? No, because a surgeon
must implant the CI. The 3D can’t do that job!

NO INTERPRETER AT AUCTIONS
    Could a deaf person participate at a hearing auction
without an interpreter?
    There is fast action at auctions, and it is easy for
a hearing person to get lost!
    But what about a deaf person? A deaf businessman told
DeafDigest that he goes to auctions without an
interpreter!
    How? The auctioneers know him. And they use their
fingers to tell the deaf person the price being bid,
and will make sure the deaf person knows the price that
has been bid.

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
I went snowshoeing with my son-in-law and two dogs.
I followed him from behind for easy trekking across the
frozen reservoir.
The ice is about 2 1/2 feet thick, as we saw people ice fishing.
We went from one side of the reservoir to the other, a 2 1/2
hour trek!
The temperature was very comfortable, in the high 30s and
sunny.
My daughter drove around the reservoir and rescued us!
It has been a long brutal cold winter and this was great
opportunity to be out!
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
