My experience about NAD

Go to Video Google (ASL VLOG)


I would like to share with my experiences about National Association of the Deaf. Let's start from a long time ago, I learned a little bit about Jr. NAD during my high school years. When I was senior, I was chosen to be the president. It was my pleasure to do it and I had fun doing it. The year of 1991 was a big success for my high school by earning a fund raising. We hosted a basketball tournament that included all the mainstreamed high school in Southern California. After I graduated from high school, I didn't follow up with NAD.

I gave my support to Jared Evans for his willing to do a blog for NAD. I read his first blog at NAD that made me agreed his point of view for NAD based on his experience with NAD. After I read 95 post-conference blogs that caused me to change my perspective of NAD from the past 15 years. I do appreciated by their hard work for 125 years. Now, I'm looking forward to the next NAD conference by going there or read more blogs.

Last thing, I would like to have NAD committee to consider installing Vlog on NAD. Of course, American Sign Language is our first language for the deaf community that we are proud of!

Thank you for your viewing this vlog.

A Long day at La Jolla Shores on July 4th!

  • Click for more photo.

  • Hello,

    My family and I were so excited to have fun at La Jolla Shores beach for July 4th! The night before, we were packing our food and beach stuff. We wanted to be ready to arrive at the beach early as possible to reserve the bonfire ring. Unfortunately, at 5:30 AM we were too late to reserve the bonfire ring because the beach was open at 4 AM!! The grass field next to the beach was already packed and was filled up with umbrellas, tents, canopies, and people!

    We got lucky that we got to the front row of the parking lot. We made an announcement to have everyone to meet at a specific location, but it was filled up quickly. John, Reed, and I surfed after we made a living room under the canopy. Reed and I surfed for over 2 hours on the water, which it was glassy with small & good shaped waves.

    Our daughter, Renny was so excited being in the water and hopped over the waves (see in pictures). She was very lucky that she has friends to play with. Our friends were happy to loan their boogie board to Renny and she got addicted to it! She knew that she had to share it with her friends but she kept saying one more, one more, and one more!

    We were very pleased to see our 20 - 25 friends and they joined and chatted with us. We felt honored by our friends who they wanted to hold our son, Lenny while we could watch or play with Renny in the water. We borrowed our friend, Joe Keller's kayak and we felt very spoiled going on kayaking alone. We explored the swells on the way to La Jolla Cove and looked at the caves down below where people went snorkeling. Later in that afternoon, Reed and I surfed again for another 2 hours and we got out of the water before sunset!

    We thought we wouldn’t be able to have a bonfire since we couldn't reserve the bonfire ring. Chris and Kary brought their fire pit so we could have a bonfire!! YAYYYY!! Some of our friends have left before the fireworks and some of us stayed and watched the beautiful fireworks in 3 different places. We had s’mores and sat in our living room. We left La Jolla shores at 10 PM and the traffic was terrible, it was bumper to bumper for 30 minutes! If there was no heavy traffic then we could have got home within 5 minutes!

    Dump on the freeway in San Diego!

    This morning, I read news about Dump on freeway worst than what I saw a driver toss their cigarette butts out of the window! I assumed my sticker "PACK YOUR TRASH" on my rear of car; it isn't give message enough! Not very long ago, I wasn't concern about trash spread out in everywhere until I saw cigarette floated on the water while I was paddled on my surfboard. So, I would be very appreciate if everyone DO cares about environmental or let us will see increase percent of our taxes for pay state crew CLEANS our mess! Can we make difference?

    Caltrans has furnished an entire house with freeway trash, including a mattress, sofas, an old phonograph and even a washing machine, NBC 7/39 reported. All of the items were picked up by Caltrans crews on local freeways.

    Litter crews said they pick up 50 mattresses per month in San Diego County alone. Many of the large items end up on the freeway because they are not properly tied down in cars and pickup trucks.

    Renny and her old friends

  • 6/25/06

    Renny met her best friend, Alex at Simone's Family Daycare in Point Loma when she was a year and half. She still remembers Alex even though Renny doesn't go to that daycare anymore. She talks about Alex all the time; even she named one of her turtles, Alex at her Grandma Georgia's.

    We never forget when she was a toddler and told us how much fun she had with AX (her fingerspelled). Later, we figured it out. It was spelled for Alex!

    We thought that Renny probably would never see her again but Alex's mom; Mary contacted us that Alex wanted to see Renny again! We were so surprised that we got contacted from Mary then we made plans to get together. We met at Fanuel Park (in Pacific Beach, San Diego) for lunch and play. Also, another friend, Melissa from Renny's daycare joined the girls.

    Renny, Alex, and Melissa had too much fun together at the Fanuel Park a for couple hours. They played in the sand with the beach toys and swam in the bay with their clothes on!!

    We were very pleased to see Renny happy to see her old friends again!

    Father's day

  • Father day, 6/18/06

    I am really appreciated being a father because my daughter is growing with a language that we can chat more and more together. I was amazed to see her how she develops in her own world that she loves to share with me.

    She melted my heart when she said," You are the best dad in the whole wide world!"

    We invited Barry and Georgia (Holly's parents) to come over to our place. Holly made a delicious breakfast, blueberry waffle with bacon, sausages, fresh strawberries, blueberries, and coffee. We feasted and enjoyed it. We kicked back and chatted in our living room all morning.

    We could have invited my parents but they were having too much fun in Hawaii on the cruise celebrating their 36th wedding anniversary.
