10 years ago today, I decided it was time to stop lurking.

I was new to computers, and even newer to message boards. I really did not comprehend how places like DU operated; I had to sign up to discover this.

I knew it looked fascinating and I wanted to join in the discussions. So I did, and wow, a whole new world opened up.

I was politically minded before I got here, but DU really reinforced that. I have learned so much from the smart people who post here!

I want to thank all of you who have contributed to my education, which continues to this day. It's been a blast (well, mostly! ) and I'm grateful.

DU is, and always will be, home...

Captain Phillips--Wow. Tom Hanks is amazing.


Just watched this tonight, and I am still shaking. Very intense movie, based on a true story, with great performances all around. Tom Hanks is superb.

I give it my highest recommendation.

Modern technology allows this blind mom to see her newborn son.

Kathy Beitz has been legally blind since she was 11 years old.

She had never even seen a baby before, but with an amazing new technology, she was able to gaze upon her newborn son.

The 29-year-old Ontario woman became the latest recipient of eSight glasses, which use a video camera to record images which are then enhanced and projected onto screens in front of the eyes.

All of it at the link.

From his wife:

A Christopher Green update:

OMG! Chris is moving today to Kindred Hospital, a rehab facility, but specifically to the LTAC unit. It is still in Cleveland, just a bit further east from the clinic, up Fairhill. I am so excited!


I decorated his room at the clinic for Christmas and here are the pictures. The last one is Chris in the ICU on Christmas.
