Ring, Ring! For whom the BELL tolls...



Today is March 3rd. On this very day in 1847 Alexander Graham Bell was born. He was an innovative genius of a man. His most notable accomplishment was his invention called the telephone. Just think how that has changed the world! Look at what he started for long distance communication. What would he think if he could see cellphones and the internet and satellite...? Amazing. So honor him today by reaching out and touching someone. Call a loved one and think of old Alex G. Bell.

Hey did you know that in the deaf community he isn't very popular. I learned in one of my ASL classes that he had a Deaf parent or spouse, I can't remember which, but that he thought he needed to make them speak instead of using signed language. I thought it was kind of interesting.
