Written by: Jennifer Winters

I can see the attraction of the Amish lifestyle, where there is no electricity and telephone communication is rarely used on a daily basis.

I have become quite bitter with service providers these days; even working for one it was frustrating. I liked the “emergency only plan” easy to understand no hidden fees, and then came “My 5”, “Local City”, “Unlimited Social Networking Plan, See restrictions” and so on. When did it get so complicated? Read the rest of this entry »

Sirens, shattered glass and babies crying are all sounds that a deaf person is unlikely to ever hear.
