Santa and Frosty are warming cinnamon and apples today. There's a pumpkin warmer closely guarded by Magnus, the cuddly moose, who stole a pack of Very Merry Cranberries. Oakley the Owl wears orange in my house, and Bramble the Bear favors Vanilla Suede. Bet you could change his mind. Wax, lotion, spray, nativity, menorah, romance, or rejuvenation.

>I would like to remind everyone that I am a Tupperware consultant and I have a mailing list for those who wish to receive a text version of the monthly specials. I am having to rebuild my list and have lost some contacts in the process of setting up my new computer. If you were on this list and have not received anything from me since October please let me know and I will add you back to the list. Welcome to anyone else who would like to be added to this list. To join or rejoin the list please send me an email to betsaw at intergate.com and let me know whether you prefer to receive the list as an attachment or have it pasted into the body of the message. I prepare and send it both ways and it is usually sent out in the middle of the month when the new specials arrive. Orders can be placed with me or directly from my website.

>There are four very important aspects of LinkedIn that I would like to learn. (A), how to share information with people who are on my list, (B), how to start my own discussion in a group, (C), how to reply to a comment in a discussion group or regular post by using my Verizon ISP, since all LinkedIn messages come into my Verizon box to make it easier as a blind person to keep up with all information while my network is expanding, and (D), how much capacity are we allowed on LinkedIn when posting information, such as a resume? I want to learn the steps to these four processes. I believe they would be valuable tools to what I am trying to accomplish.

>I am looking for the user manual for an older Braille embosser, the VersaPoint model BP1D Braille embosser. This machine was made by Telesensory Technology, no longer in business, and the current company that used to service the device, Freedom Scientific, says, they do not have copies of the manual in their archives nor online. The VersaPoint Duo is readily online, but this model does not compare at all with mine, and hence, the document unusable. I would appreciate this document in any form, but preferably, as listed below. Braille document form ("Word file" preferred as my pc is old, and cannot read PDF files) However, if you have the doc in PDF format, I would ask someone to convert it, if possible. Large or regular print, CD or DVD, Cassette. Thanking you in advance for your service. Best regards, Elizabeth Slaughter

>Telus at least from what I know of hates when you use their lines to call chat lines into the states especially the 712 prefixed ones not sure why that is probably due to the fact it costs more to call them even with a long distance flat rate plan due to the fact the owners get paid so the phone companies get charged more possibly so they send it back to the customers. Please check with your phone provider before you call these numbers as long distance may apply or something like that. Even line owners were not aware that Canadians had to pay more or anything at all. Shaw communications another large phone company hate when you call chat lines as well and can remove your phone if you do this too often.

>Everyone needs a relaxing, stress free and exciting vacation! Want to meet new people from around the US and make lasting friendships? At the Oral Hull Foundation for the Blind and Park we have just the right summer "Adventure" retreat planned especially for you! 
>
>Nestled at the foot of the Mt. Hood National forest, in Sandy, Oregon, our 22 acre forested park is designed especially for those with blindness and vision impairments. We believe that blindness and low vision should not mean isolation and dependency. With that belief our retreat center staff invites you to spend 7 days with us in August to participate in our Adventure retreats for adults, 18 and over. Adventure I will feature white water rafting, kayaking, tandem biking, hiking, archery, challenge course adventures, fishing in our stocked trout pond, workshops to introduce new assistive technology, unique craft classes, as well as many other surprise adventures. The Adventure II retreat takes it a step up with more arduous hikes in and around the NW, rock climbing and more! Both our Adventure retreats feature a first evening "get to know each other" special dinner and live music! If you're more inclined to just rest, relax and chill out then our park
 has many serene, relaxing and well-manicured gardens to enjoy. Or, just sit back in our 12 person hot tub or indoor, heated swimming pool and visit with new friends.
>
>All the adventures above, your room accommodations in our 24 room (48 twin bed) facility and all meals are included in our 7 day retreat for $500.00. We can assure you there isn't a better deal around! If you want to tandem skydive there is an extra charge of $195.00 and an extra $100 for windsurfing.
>
>Our guests who regularly attend these retreat sessions find that the Oral Hull Park experience challenges them to do much more than they thought they could. Our guests range in age from their twenties to eighties and up! Please call our park office at 503-668-6195 and talk to Susie who can answer all your questions, or visit our website at www.oralhull.org for all the latest news and to download registration forms. Payment plans are available if needed. Don't just think about it…do it now! You'll wonder why you didn't come to Oral Hull Park sooner.

>GW Micro Launches GWSkype
>
>Fort Wayne, Indiana (December 19, 2011) - GW Micro, Inc. (www.gwmicro.com) announced a major innovation today for the blind and visually impaired community.  GW Micro, developers of Window-Eyes, the most powerful screen reader available, have developed GWSkype - a Window-Eyes app that makes Skype accessible to all blind and visually impaired people who use a Windows computer.
>
>Skype is a peer-to-peer service that allows users to call and message others via the Internet.  Skype users may also call other landlines for a fee.  While Skype has been around for years, its constantly changing user interface has been extremely difficult for blind and visually impaired users.  "Each time the user interface changes, we have to completely write new a new Window-Eyes app to account for the changes," said Dan Weirich, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for GW Micro.  "These constant changes make it difficult or impossible for blind and visually impaired consumers to continue using the Skype service."
>
>The new GWSkype app will always make the Skype service available to blind and visually impaired computer users regardless of new versions of Skype that are released.  The GWSkype app is a Window-Eyes app and demonstrates the power of Window-Eyes apps unmatched by any of its competitors.  As Christmas is approaching, GW Micro is releasing the GWSkype app to all blind and visually impaired users who are running Windows at no cost.  So, even a consumer not running Window-Eyes can still download and use the GWSkype app.  
>
>"We believe that this is a special time of year and we want to give back," said Weirich.  "GWSkype is a special gift from GW Micro to all blind and visually impaired users of Windows".
>
>The GWSkype app can be downloaded at http://www.gwmicro.com/apps/gwskype.  You can download the GWSkype live webinar and product demonstration at www.gwmicro.com/podcast. 
>
>GW Micro has been a trusted pioneer in the adaptive technology industry since 1990, and continues to lead with innovative, customer driven solutions.
>
>Skype™ is a trademark of Skype Technologies S.A.

>On the quarterly TSA Disability Coalition teleconference held last week, we informed our members that TSA planned to launch TSA Cares, a toll-free helpline to provide information and assistance to passengers with disabilities and medical conditions and their families before they fly. We are excited to announce that TSA Cares is now available and accepting calls.
>
>Travelers may call TSA Cares toll free at 1-855-787-2227 prior to traveling with questions about screening policies, procedures and what to expect at the security checkpoint. Travelers who are deaf or hard of hearing can use a relay service to contact TSA Cares or can e-mail TSA-ContactCenter at dhs.gov.
>
>The hours of operation for the TSA Cares helpline are Monday through Friday 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. EST, excluding federal holidays. After hours, travelers can find information about traveling with disabilities and medical needs on TSA's website at:
>http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtravel/disabilityandmedicalneeds/
>
>When a passenger with a disability or medical condition calls TSA Cares, a representative will provide assistance, either with information about screening that is relevant to the passenger's specific disability or medical condition, or the passenger may be referred to disability experts at TSA. TSA recommends that passengers call approximately 72 hours ahead of travel so that TSA Cares has the opportunity to coordinate checkpoint support with a TSA Customer Service Manager located at the airport when necessary.
>
>TSA will issue a press release regarding TSA Cares later today, as well as making information about TSA Cares available on www.tsa.gov. We will provide you with the specific link to TSA Cares information when it becomes active, as well as a link to the official press release.
>
>We urge you to spread the word about TSA Cares so that those you represent have access to information about screening that is specific to their disabilities or medical conditions. As always, the staff from the Office of Disability Policy and Outreach will be available to you to assist with disseminating information about TSA Cares.
>
>Thank you for your continued participation and support. We look forward to improving the screening experience for passengers through TSA Cares.
>
>Sincerely,
>
>Kimberly Walton, Special Counselor
>Transportation Security Administration

>Computers for the Blind
>Here is your chance to have a powerful computer with software allowing blind and visually challenged persons to be able to join family and friends, doing what they are doing.
>Each computer comes complete with monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers, and all associated cables. It also comes with preloaded software. Software includes: Open Office for word processing/book keeping, NVDA screen reader, demo version of Window-Eyes (will function for 30 minutes before computer restart), and 60 day demo version of ZoomText. For a donation of only $100, the Texas Center for the Visually Challenged will send your newly refurbished computer right to your door. As of this morning, they have sent over 4,100 computers to visually impaired individuals. Computers can only be shipped to the United States or Canada.
>Call Lee Mann at 214 340 6328 for full information. Please pass this information on to other people who may need an inexpensive, fully accessible computer.

>Horizons for the Blind, a Crystal Lake, Ill based not-for-profit organization, announces the launch of directionsformeTM (directionsforme.org), an exciting new Internet based service that makes consumer packaging information available in an accessible online format for people who are blind, visually impaired or simply have trouble reading the increasingly small print on packages or labels.
>There are limited resources, if any, for visually impaired consumers to access this information. Many websites are not designed to be fully or even partly accessible for text-to-speech screen readers, Braille output devices, screen magnifiers and web-enabled cell phones.
>This important information is often ignored because of the difficulty in seeing it. Some of this information is of a convenient nature but drug interaction and allergy warnings could be life threatening. Gaining comprehensive access will foster self sufficiency and allow consumers to lead more healthy and independent lives.
>directionsforMeTM was designed specifically for the blind and visually impaired consumer and employs innovative methods to simplify the user experience. 
>Skip to Main Content: Allows you to bypass repetitive information contained on each web page.
>Subject Headings: Lets you go directly to the information you want without wading through content you do not.
>Formatting: After consulting and testing with actual users, information on the directions site is set up in the most efficient and understandable way possible.
>The Directions website will address a glaring disconnect between consumer product manufacturers and this underserved population.
>The easy-to-use format makes directionsforMeTM appealing to a wide range of consumers. With the amount of information on consumer products increasing dramatically and the print size decreasing just as significantly, many consumers, particularly the growing senior population, are having trouble reading the information on packages and labels.
>Through a licensing agreement with Gladson, Directions features over 300,000 products in food, health and beauty and general merchandise categories. It provides consumers a consistent, one-stop source for preparation directions, nutrition facts, ingredients, allergy/drug interaction 
>warnings and more.
