Stacy Ellingen replied to SD Network's discussion Apps and Websites Rating Accessibility
"I personally LOVE this concept.  I'm going to join and start using this.  There  are so many places that claim they're accessible,  but aren't.  If this takes off,  it could be very useful!"

"So glad you are doing this, and that Lynn Breedlove is going to be talking about this...everyone needs to know and get involved in modifying this budget proposal, or 40 years of self determination will be lost."

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.
