At exactly 11:11 a.m. every Veteran’s Day (Nov. 11), the sun aligns perfectly with the Anthem Veteran’s Memorial in Arizona to shine through the ellipses of the five marble pillars representing each branch of the Armed Forces, illuminating The Great Seal of the United States. (Thanks, Melanie)

Honoring Veterans Today

Wednesday, November 11th, 2015

Many people confuse Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Memorial Day is for remembering the military personnel who died in the service of our country. Today, Veterans Day, is the day to thank all those who served in the US military.

For those who served, thank you for our freedom and way of life.

Yes Virginia, There Is A Braille Playboy

Wednesday, November 11th, 2015


And there has been since 1970. Playboys are translated into Braille at the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS)  which puts out transcribed versions of magazines, books and other materials.  There is no centerfold.

This makes sense to me because of the articles – but I am still baffled as to why Braille is on ATM car drive-up windows.  Do many blind people drive?  At first I thought it was probably because manufacturers didn’t want to make two different types of keyboards.  I now know, however, it’s required by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.

The idea is that if a blind person is driven to an ATM, he can use the machine without disclosing his PIN number. Both ideas seem valid so I’m not going to worry about it anymore I guess.
