I actually did the safety pin thing, Arielle.  It helps me tell 
which piece of clothing goes with what.  I also have one of those 
Colorino Color identifiers.  It's amazing.

Hi all,
I have used the Braille color tags and they are handy, and don't 
show
or cause itching or discomfort. I don't use them much myself 
because I
just don't have the skill or patience to sew them into all my 
clothes.
You can use other tactile methods, like putting a certain number 
of
safety pins on the tag to denote colors or distinguishing two 
tops
that feel the same by putting a safety pin in one. Honestly, I 
have
been able to circumvent much of the color problem by wearing lots 
of
blue jeans (which go with everything), black slacks or skirts for
business casual (which go with almost everything), and dresses 
for
formalwear (which are one-piece outfits). I do try to choose tops 
and
dresses that are fashionable and varied in color and style. 
However,
that's just me, and I know lots of blind people who like to be 
more
creative than that with colors, and are able to do so.

 I memorize what my close look like and do not have issues with 
it. You
 can get a color identifier to use. There are these pens that you 
can
 use that has some label thing that comes with it and you can use 
on
 them or just try to get clothes that are all different in some 
form or
 another and then remember what one looks like what.

 As for Carly
 This lady asked a reasonable question and is using this email 
list in
 the manner in which it was designed for. Your crude remark was 
not
 needed. Please think before you speak, for there will always be
 someone who will remember.

 Your comment was
 I would say that, if colors of things concerns you that much, 
then you
 might try those labels yet, there are people duying pointlessly 
in the
 world, have
 you heard?

 'Afternoon, Andi,

 Since you have partial vision, our persspectives may differ. I 
am a
 total. When I was a pre-teen however,  what color something 
might be
 and whether two items of clothing "matched," meant more to me 
than
 someone might think, although I had never ocularly "seen," the 
clothes.
 As I have matured however, what color something might be hardly 
even
 flits accross my thinker.

They could have just taken the GPS out of the car.

Certainly are good ideas.


This is worth reminding.

This  gives us something to think about with all our  new
electronic  technology.
GPS
A friend  had their car broken into while they were at a
football game.  Their  carwas parked  on the green which was
adjacent to the football  stadium and specially allotted to
football  fans.  Things stolen from the car included  a garage
door remote control, some money and a  GPS which had  been
prominently  mounted on the  dashboard.
When the  victims got home, they found that their house  had
been ransacked and just about everything  worth anything had been
stolen.
The  thieves had used the GPS to guide them to the  house.
Theythen used  the garage remote control to open the garage  door
and gain entry to the house.  The  thieves knew the owners were
at the football  game, they knew what time the game was scheduled
to finish and so  theyknew how  much time they had to clean out
the house.   It appeared  thatthey had  brought a truck to empty
the house of its  contents.
Something  to consider if you have a GPS - don't put your  home
address in it.  Put a nearby address  (like a store or gas
station) so you can still  find your way home if you need to, but
no one  else would know where you live if your GPS were  stolen.
MOBILE  PHONES -- I would  never have thought of  this.......
This lady has now changed  her habit of how she lists her
nameson her  mobile phone after her handbag was stolen.   Her
handbag, which contained her cell phone,  credit card, wallet...
etc...  was  stolen.
20 minutes  later when she called her hubby, from a pay
phonetelling  him what had happened, hubby says 'I received  your
text asking about our Pin number and I've  replied a little while
ago.'
When they  rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told  them
allthe money  was already withdrawn.  The thief had  actually
used the stolen cell phone to text  'hubby' in the contact list
and got hold of the  pin number.  Within 20 minutes he had
withdrawn all the money from their bank  account.
Moral of  the  lesson:
Do not  disclose the relationship between you and the  people in
your contact  list.
Avoid  using names like Home, Honey, Hubby, Sweetheart,  Dad,
Mom,  etc....
And very importantly,  when sensitive info is being
askedthrough  texts, CONFIRM by calling  back.

Also, when you're being  text by friends or family to meet them
somewhere, be sure to call back to confirm that  the message came
fromthem.   If you don't reach them, be very careful about  going
places to  meet'family  and friends' who text  you.
*PLEASE  PASS THIS  ON
* I never  thought about the  above!
As of now,  I no longer  have'home'  listed on my cell  phone.
Even if  this does not pertain to you....Pass it on to  your
family &  friends
