Mom and I at the buffet

At the best of times it is not an easy task for anyone when dealing with a buffet at a restaurant or at a function, but for a blind person it is even more difficult.  Just think about it for one minute!

You are unable to see what is being offered at the buffet.  You can't even tell how many buffet tables there are and you don't know who is in front of you in the line let alone know if there is anyone in front of you. 

So, what do I as a blind person do and how do I handle buffets?  In answer:  I only go to buffets with people that I trust to escort me without me bumping into others. 

Mom and I at the buffet is always a joy.  She is so good with me.  Making sure not to lead me into others and going to great pains to let me know what is being offered at the buffet tables.  She makes very sure not to overload my plate and she is really good at ensuring that my plate is not too cluttered. 

We take our time and we visit the buffet tables at least three times. Our buffet meals last for at least an hour.

Dear Readers:
This is a personal request from me for you to join my campaign against bullying (CAB).

In 2012 I launched my own campaign against bullying in response to appeals from friends and associates.  I decided to try something new and here it is.

You can support my campaign against bullying (CAB) and in return for your valuable contribution I will send you a thank you gift. Visit to learn more. I will use all contributions to promote workshops to help others protect themselves from bullying and teach them how to launch their own anti bullying campaigns.

In addition, I will produce blogs and podcasts to help me spread my campaign and to convince others to do the same.

You may also visit my online store at and browse through my selections.

Help me to stop the spread of bullying  and to show others how to combat bullies.
