"This is a real accomplishment for these families.  However, I feel that the injustice done was that a large group of us were left out of the picture who also need this kind of thing.  How sad.  "

Posted on January 15, 2015 at 10:28am 0 Comments

A great blog on Disability.gov written by Katherine Schneider about the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).  It's interesting that the ADA has only improved access for 19% of Americans with disabilities.  She highlights 25 kinds of access the ADA covers.  It's neat to think about all the different things the ADA covers.  How will you celebrate the anniversary?

I am loving retirement.  I can't remember feeling so relaxed and "In control" before.  After a year of travel, reading, and generally enjoying life, I've started to do some consulting.  For the next six months I'm handling marketing and fund raising for Leadership Wisconsin.   I hope you can come to the conference in Green Bay April 24-25: conference.leadershipwisconsin.org  I never want to work full time again, but it's fun to do enough to keep in the loop and see colleagues.  If you hear of anyone who needs a writer/editor/speaker/trainer/baker, let me know.
