Me and my coffee machine

Well, in some ways we are great friends but in other ways, like anything else, we sometimes have our fights. However, at the end of the day we are on the same page, so to speak.

Without having any instructions in alternate format, Braille or on cd, I have to make sure that I either remember how to interact with my coffee machine or to write down directions whenever someone tells me how I should be doing things or what I should be doing.

I do not have a talking coffee machine so I have to make sure that it is simple enough for me to be able to use. It is simple enough but Heaven help me if I forget to put the water in the right part of the machine.

I know that there is a light to tell me when it is on and working but not being able to see it I now have to listen for its gurgling sound in order to know what is going on. When I hear the gurgling sound I know that it is working and when the noise ceases then I know that it has finished its task. All in a day's work but I do not mind.

I'm Donna J. Jodhan, your friendly accessibility advocate, wishing you a terrific day.

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"Each time we raise our voice at someone else we are engaging in bullying! Each time we raise our hands to slap or punch someone else we are also engaging in bullying and each time we engage in actions to either manipulate or force someone else to do what we want we are also engaging in bullying!

There is no room in this world for bullying and each day we fail to take action against bullying it is another day that we allow others to bully us and our kids. Our heroes and role models are the ones who have made us proud; those brave young men and women who gave their lives for us in past wars and those who continue to do so. They are not the ones who choose to be racists and those who believe that their bad behaviour in public is acceptable.

I write and record audio mysteries that are being used at such events as murder mystery evenings as well as at public awareness and team building events. I promote understanding, tolerance, and problem solving and my audio mysteries continue to be broadcasted around the world and you can listen to them anywhere! On the plane or train! In the car or right there in your home! On your i device or computer!

Please join my campaign against bullying (CAB) by supporting my efforts to keep on writing and recording!
If you truly care then you will certainly dare!"
