        It was taken after a brief winter snow storm,if you look closely you can see Brooke Shields,Pamela Anderson and Carmen Electra frolicing in the snow beside my shop

              more black humour

              It looks as if a man could easily come a cropper making his way past all that machinery. Everything is written in brail I presume?
              I like his music more than his workshop.

                  Bought a camera once. The instruction manual came in 6 languages and Braille.

                        This is a link to an article about a blind machinist.

                        A person with a serious handicap such as blindness who overcomes it to become a success should not be a subject of derision.

                          Ouch! I'm probably an evil person for laughing at that, but it was pretty funny. I have some very close friends who have various disabilities and difficulties, and everyone of them has a sense of humor. Believe me, they joke about us so-called able bodied people frequently. They also joke about each other frequently as well. I've never laughed so hard in my life when I was having dinner with a couple guys who had lost different limbs. They were razzing on each others "disability" for much of the evening, and then turned their sights on making fun of able bodied people. A sense of humor is good thing to have in this complicated world.

                          Having said that, I've always heard that Stevie was a real down to earth guy with a good sense of humor and perspective. I think he would have gotten a kick out of this if he could have seen it...

                            Yeah, I worked at a place that had a deaf engineer with a great personality and sense of humor.

                            He got the biggest kick out of the joke:

                            Q: Why do farts smell?
                            A: So that deaf people can enjoy them too!
                            .
