March 4 2008 Deafness Newsletter

Hello friends
My newsletter is early this week because I'm going to Sydney tomorrow morning for work for two days. Then I return home to celebrate my son's birthday and our 9th wedding anniversary before driving off to Melbourne for the weekend. It's a long weekend here in Australia and I'm visiting my 96.5 year old father.

Following on from last week about how deaf and hearing impaired people cope with emergencies and how deaf people cope with drivign, is how deaf people need to be more alert than most when walking our streets
