I remember a time when I felt so weak and afraid. I overheard a comment that I "lived in the land of little." Never forgot that.

Y'all are living large. This is an excellent post. There is a book, written by Wallace D. Wattles in 1910 called "The Science of Getting Rich". (It is available online for FREE, I don't remember how I found it, but I did. I have a taped reading of it.) At first it offended me, because it seemed to be the opposite of the gospel message I was raised with. As I continued to listen I realzed what it expressed was the plentifulness of the environment. It expressed the desire of the universe to provide for all, and that it is competition that leads to the sin of greed.

If you can find it, I think you would enjoy it immensely. I think it is funny that I was able to obtain a free reading, when many so called "business" websites use it as a teaser, and charge for it.

Anyhow, you've expressed exactly the ideas I got from it.

Wonderful!!!! (I tend to beleive in signs.....Maybe I WILL start that pastry business!!!!)

Open Source Audio...right up the same alley.

I've been thinking about the driving thing myself lately. It amazes me how many people seem to think driving a car is just something that's... automatic for people, that it's a given that anyone they talk to is able to drive.

I can associate with pretty much every bit you wrote about your experiences with driving, and I've basically decided it is just not safe for me to be driving a car based on my experiences when I tried learning years ago.

Thanks for the link Rose. I will listen to that. It sounds very interesting.

Yeah codeman, I don't know why so many people assume everyone can drive. It's really dangerous to encourage people who really do have difficulty to go ahead and try anyway. When people are driving they aren't just responsible for the passengers in their car but also for the lives of everyone else on the road.

I hope that is taken into account more in the future and more options are made available to non-drivers.

somewhat unrelated... You wrote "change a barrage of images into static symbols they can negotiate." and I thought of taking my boys shopping on Saturday. The "Supercenter" is quite chaotic, and somewhat dangerous. We walked in the automatic doors, and Ezra suddenly took off into the store. I looked up, and saw that his school aide was checking out. I was thrilled that he spotted her, and that his connection with her is that positive.
