Hi Everyone:How is everyone doing? Hope o.k., no one has posted lately including me as I have been so bsy. September hit and wow, didn't expect it to get so crazy. Well, my computer is limping along rehab better hurry up or else I won't be posting any more. It's dying a very slow painful death, now I am not able to access the internet as internet explorer and Mizella firefox have crashed and the computer won't let Tom reinstall it.
Pretty scary.Well, last Thursday Buster and I went to the ceremony of the new route 220 bus going to Riverside. Just for people who like to sleep in, there will be a later bus leaving from Monterey and Dinah Shore at 6;04 in the morning. The buses are pretty nice although not very much room for a poor puppy like Buster between the seats. Well, I'm hoping that Melisa has heard from Dr. Church by now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm still working on the things we talked about at our last chapter meeting. As soon as I know, I'll let you all know. As the months progress, I will be even busier as we have two back to back classes, and Guide Dogs has asked me to work on another project for them. We'll all need to work hard and together to get the things done we want to achieve.
Everyone take care, I'll be back as soon as I can with an update. Best Wishes Linda Samulski and Buster----- Original Message ----- From: "Linda Samulski" <desertblossom@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

Hello again: I meant to mention this at the meeting the other day. We have two special birthdays to celebrate. The first I didn't know about. Our dear Lena had her irthday on Sautrday.I just want to say how much we appreciate and love you, and a very happy belated birthday to you. Keep celebrating; you deserve the best this life has to offer. The next is a little dfferent. Last Thursday was the birthday of the Americans with Disabilities Act which was signed in to law by the first George Bush. It's unfortunate that we had to have a law to insure access and reasonable accommodations to those of us who are disabled, but hey, whatever works. We still have a long way to g however, things are so much better than even when say, John and I were kids. So, happy birthday to ADA, and may we keep celebrating by moving forward and making the world a better place for everyone to live.Best Wishes Linda Samulski and Buster----- Original Message ----- From: "Linda Samulski" <desertblossom@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>To: <desert-voice@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Tuesday, July 31, 2012 11:11 AM Subject: [desert-voice] Re: Welcoming another member and a quick updateHi Everyone: Hope everyone is having a wonderful day.We have good news.

Robert I subscribed you to the mailinglist, so you should be receiving this I hope. If you don't mind, please post a small Email just to let us know you're receiving our messages? That would be greatly appreciated. I'm going to get started on the website tomorrow. I'm still waiting for bios on people. I was going to get them at the meeting yesterday but I wanted to wait til more people were there. Maybe there will be more people for next month's meeting so I can record more notes. I do have some slightly good news. I can't promise anything, but I may be able to get Christina to go to the meeting for the rehab superviser. I hope she goes. I'm trying to get her to understand that sitting on the sidelines is not going to help manners. I'm not wasting time, I'm making use of it, and that's what we all need to do. Other than that, not much has happened. Oh, I did have a question though. Are we still going to have our regular Ccb meeting on the last Friday of August even though we have that meeting on the 22nd of August? I also wanted to point out that the conference call number, just like the last one is a long distance number. You can't get a conference call number for free that's a toal free number. The only reason I like this new custom number is because you get the custom greeting, along with our private room. Also, if let's just say, John wanted to use the conference line, even during the meeting to have a private conversation with some one else. I could sign him up with the referral code given to me by the conference service, and he can have his own room on the line. It's just more customizeable, but it still offers the same features as the last one, such as call recording. If anyone is able to get in touch with Cano, please ask him if he's receiving the emails from our list. I haven't received any emails from him or ... Pancho, if that's how he spells his name. Well, everyone take care. I'll write again if anything changes. Let me know if you have any questions. Again, Welcome to our list, Robert. If you want, please visit the website at http://www.desert-voice.t15.orgThere's a blog and forum on there, but it's still under serious construction.Well, everyone have a nice evening. Take care, and will write soon. Be Blessed, Melissa Roe
