Happy Halloween!

Posted by Sharon Jacobson on Friday, October 28, 2011, In : Holidays 
Halloween is on monday and if there are children in your life, it is time to celebrate! In order to do this, I focus on the things that I can do rather then the things I can't. For instance, I can't go on the trick or treating run, but I can make the annual freaky feast of Blood-N-Guts, (spaghetti with a super thick meat sauce) Garlic Bones (bread sticks formed from either ready made dough or from my bread machine) and rotten teeth (whole kernel corn, half dyed green, and mixed together after...

Walmart Field Trip

Posted by Sharon Jacobson on Tuesday, October 25, 2011, In : Shopping 
Part of Living Life, is shopping and I decided to write about the places that I shop, here in Living Life because of that simple fact.  Also it is a good thing to be able to see how easy or hard it is to shop in certain businesses and with a record, someday anyone can check before shopping, whether or not it is worth the trip.

Anyhow, I went to Walmart on sunday, therefore it is the first business that I shall talk about.  I like Walmart, mostly because I can get cheap laundry soap and toilet ...

Woodchucks

Posted by Sharon Jacobson on Friday, October 21, 2011, In : Nonsense and Silly Stuff 
Today I break from the norm. Because I can.

I wish to discuss the age old question. How much wood can a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
Look at it this way, a woodchuck is about the size of a healthy beaver and beavers while they can chew wood, have never been known to chuck it. Simply put, beavers do not have the upper body strength to actually chuck wood but do woodchucks? I think if they do chuck wood, it must be very small wood, which brings up another question then. Why? I...

Jury Duty and Dealing With the Court System

Posted by Sharon Jacobson on Tuesday, October 18, 2011, In : Accessibility Issues 

The Tuolumne County Courthouse is a historical landmark, I think it would be very odd going through town if it wasn't there. It was also built a long time ago. I say a long time because I have no urge to be accurate on it's age, that isn't the point I wish to dwell on. What I wish to talk about is it's unacceptable inaccessibility. Yes I know others have talked about it which is why there is a lot of quote, "politically loaded questions".  There are plans on the table to build a new Law Cente...

Waiting Rooms, Barely Accessible.

Posted by Sharon Jacobson on Friday, October 14, 2011, In : Accessibility Issues 
I've been in a fair amount of waiting rooms since I started using a chair full time and frankly, I am amazed at the lack of forethought that goes into the planning of them. You would think that in a doctor's office of all places, it would be totally ADA compliant but I find most of them hitting the just barely compliant mark at least in my books.
Doctors and Sonora Community owned clinics listen up!  (also the Social Services office)
Those lovely privacy cubicles that you have up are a great i...

Have A Seat?

Posted by Sharon Jacobson on Wednesday, October 12, 2011, In : Accessibility Issues 
The first time a receptionist told me that whilst I was sitting in my chair, I laughed, quite hard actually. Much later I realised that statement is just a conditioned remark. She was just seeing another patient not a person and that is the statement she had uncontiously repeated hundreds of times a day. Thing is what do you say if you are a receptionist to someone that brings their own seating? I was recently asked just that question by a receptionist at a clinic in Modesto. Before I tell yo...
