You Have A Purpose!

Master ASL's Superhero Signs

We had a special request for signs of well-known superheroes. Do you see how some name signs are descriptive or iconic, while others are not? If you want to learn more about how name signs are formed, research descriptive versus arbitrary name signs. Have a great weekend!

That Deaf Guy "Strong Deaf Hands"

Hello Friends,
Kay and I have been married for over 17 years and we believe one of the reasons we are happily married is because of our sense of humor. I can't help but tease Kay about the bad relationship she has developed with our can opener. Every time she has to use it... it acts crazy and doesn't do its job. However, it always seems to work fine for me. We have been contemplating the reason for this for years. Am I stronger, more talented with the can opener? Does the can opener like me better than her? The jokes never end. I know what you are thinking... why not just buy a new can opener? Well, what's the fun in that?
Enjoy, Matt and Kay
