Zamboni driver David Ayres who never played in the NHL was told to suit up, replacing their injured goalie.
It's only an hour flight, Cuban visa can be bought during check-in at the airline counter before departure, just don't forget your passport. I exchanged dollars into their convertible (CUC) pesos upon arrival. I stayed at an hostel next to the baseball stadium. I focused on videotaping their culture alone rather than being somewhat biased traveling group with their hectic schedule. One day took a Soviet era Lada taxi to outskirts of Havana to visit a Deaf school. They asked me what we Deaf Americans do with our obsolete TTY as we are using VP nowadays, hopefully some organizations will donate those equipment. I felt like was blasted into the past, surrounded by all those vintage automobiles.
Orlando area TV stations:
WESH NBC Channel 6 is the only VHF channel in the Orlando market, that's why your digital television not picking up the signals despite your efforts in rescaning it. We should file a complaint and demand that they switch to UHF so we can get all the major networks in our area.

There is an interesting documentary, Marching Forward, I hope to see soon about two high school marching bands from Orlando at the New York World's Fair. One is white from Edgewater and the other is from the black Jones high school in the segregated south. My left Deaf brother, a New York Times linotypist took me to the fair. The trailer is not closed-captioned so I will ask for an ASL interpreter at their next presentation. I was a former member of the New York World'Fair Historical Society at the Queens Museum.

Michigan School for the Deaf alerted the county sheriff when one of its student was assaulted on the school bus. The bus driver was arrested for assault of a vulnerable adult. The bus driver, along with an aide also resigned for not intervening in the situation at hand. The video was captured by another student on the bus, which will be used as evidence in the upcoming case.

There is a Deaf character on tonight's episode of Station 19, a Deaf girl whose parents died in the fire, siblings being separated and placed in the foster care system, while at the same time at group of unrelated homeless children loses one of their own, taken to the emergency room at Grey hospital which is three blocks away. This is my assumption, correct me if I'm wrong where a hearing child plays the Deaf character on Station 19 while a Deaf child plays the hearing child on the Good Doctor next week.
Deaf Anthology is unable to confirm the identity of Deaf character on Station 19..

A Deaf guy is suing a porn website demanding that its videos be closed-captioned. If he won the case, I don't think he'll enjoy it anyway now that the captions are blocking sexual views on the screen. I think he'll eventually sue prostitutes because their brothel house refuses to provide ASL interpreters. Can you imagine what's going on in the jury room, they are all laughing at this frivolous lawsuit that the judge probably will dismiss.

Bento boxes are popular in Japan, it's a tray of compartments, that can be bought at convenience stores, this one was served on a bullet train to Kyoto, I enjoy the scrimp tempura. It's ideal for portion control, lunch at school or work and cultural immersion.

Whiskey are popular among Deaf Kentuckians, signing Bluegrass music when drunk. There is a band group, Whiskey Deaf, that not from the area, where none of its performers are Deaf. It's just another band with the word deaf in its title, maybe its loud blasts causing us to go deaf.

Highlights of Trump's State of the Union address to the American people:
1. Support school choice, but ignores mainstreamed Deaf children in the public school system. 2. Trump refuses to shake hands with Nancy, they haven;t talk with each other for months.
3. Nancy torn up Trumps speech,after the address, get over with it and accept the fact you can't get an indictment today.
4. Trump supports historic black colleges, while cutting federal funds to Gallaudet.
5. Tuskegee pilot recognized, he's 100 years old, the Red Tails defends the bombers during WWII.
6. Terrorists forfeit their lives if the attack us under his watch.
7. Chants of "four more years," more like a rally in the Capitol.
8. Medal of Freedom given to Rush, so what the rush!
9. Unemployment rates going down, as we hiring to plant a million trees.
10. President of Venezuela upstages Trump.

We can't enjoy the dolphins splashing at the aquariums. We can't feed peanuts to the elephants at the circus. We can't take our selfies with the lions at the zoo. We can't see the groundhog's shadows to forecast the coming of spring. We blame the organization, PETA, and God forbid they take away our steak tailgate football parties. Support ATEP (Animals That Entertains People) as we protect their habitat, shield them from predators and and feed them well.
