Another blog (or two…)

October 18, 2009 at 9:50 pm (Blogs) (, )

I started another blog, Preparing for the Physical Task Test, the entry test for law enforcement.  Don’t expect a lot of real interesting writing there, but feel free to check it out if you’re curious.

I also started a blog for One Shot Photography so you can easily know when I update the site with new pictures (which, by the way, now includes Christmas cards!)

Today and a Movie Review

August 23, 2009 at 11:32 pm (Blogs, Fun Stuff)

Tonight my knee hurts.  I misplaced my brace sometime yesterday, and I can tell…

Today I worked long and hard on the blog for my dad’s program this fall.  There isn’t a lot of content at the moment, but you can expect it to pick up considerably starting this week.  Anyway, check it out 🙂 http://acentaursjourney.wordpress.com/

Ok, now to the fun stuff.  Tonight I went out with two of my closest friends before they head back to school this week.  We went to see PostGrad.  It was really cute and really funny.

It has a wonderful cast… Alexis Bledel (Gilmore Girls/Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants), Jane Lynch (guest star in Psych), Bobby Coleman (the really cute little boy who guest starred in In Plain Sight), to name a few.  Great characters, fun story, very worth seeing.

Maybe Another Knee Surgery

June 2, 2009 at 10:09 pm (Blogs, Life) (, , , )

Well, on Thursday I am going to see yet another orthopedic surgeon to get yet another opinion about what to do with my knee… sigh….

At this point yet another surgery seems imminent.  Sigh.

Anyway, one of the surgeries that might be considered is Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation, which repairs/replaces the “patchy” cartilage on the back of the patella, but it has killer-long rehab.  Well, I found a blog, Jim’s Bionic Knee that chronicles Jim’s ACI rehab.  It has a lot of good information, and is really funny.

I’m mostly posting this link for my reference, but its actually quite entertaining, so you might want to check it out too.

Autism Blogs

February 19, 2009 at 5:47 am (Blogs, Issues, Life) (, , )

There aren’t to many things where I take up an activist-type position.

Yes.  I think you should rescue, spay/neuter dogs and other pets (unless specifically using them as working dogs).

Yes.  I think people should be less careless about the enviroment.

Yes.  I try to avoid feedlot, steroid-ed meat.

But, since my cousin was diagnosed with autism, its become very clear that people really don’t know about autism spectrum disorders.  You say you know someone who is autistic, and they say “Oh really, what’s that?”  Well, considering the current statistics indicate that 1 in 150 American children will be diagnosed with autism, I think that more people should know about autism, not to mention that there needs to be more research about the cause and treatment of autism.

Well, tonight when I was browsing  through the wordpress archives, I found a few blogs I liked that are written by the parents of autistic children.

http://lifeasaplatypus.wordpress.com/ Mom of 4 and 2 year old sons, one of whom has autism

http://teenautism.com Mom of a 14 year old son with autism

http://asdmommy.wordpress.com/ Mom of a 7 year old son with autism
