Testing the cup of tea

I do not think that my way of testing a cup of tea to ensure that it is either warm enough or not too hot is any different from that of a sighted person.

Here is what I do. I simply stick my finger into my cup, making sure that when I do so I aim for the top of my cup. I go very gently and gingerly and the tip of my finger is my thermometer.

Sometimes I burn my finger tip but with practice I have learned how to stick it in the right way so that I feel the least pain.

I also have another technique which is not as effective as the one above. I wrap my hands around my tea cup and this tells me, or rather gives me a fair indication of, how hot the contents of my cup are.

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!"
