Kitchen Conundrums

Posted by Sharon Jacobson on Friday, November 18, 2011, In : Accessibility Issues 
My kitchen is the hub of our home. It is the place where everyone gathers anytime a good smell is either comming from, or about to come from it. My kitchen is also not suited to my abilities, and renovation is so expensive that it is out of the question, it is my responsibility to figure out ways to work in it safely, not only for myself but also the 2 year old "helper" under wheels.

Plan ahead is always the beginning of any of my cooking projects, I ask someone to reach down any ingredients t...

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 ...

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...
