Well, some probably heard us and never came back, but that's probably best for
the club as a whole (& for them, too, of course!)

People say, "I'm sorry," to me and I respond, "Oh, it WAS your fault, then, eh,
good, I've been looking for you!  I regret that I cannot afford to accept your
apology alone; my lawyer will be contacting you to determine an out-of-court
settlement."

Yep -- that's the thinking -- I think "moderation" is best defined by self,
with an HONEST look at one's self, one's culture, lifestyle/background, etc.

The Ozark Mountain man who drinks a full quart a day of 98% alcoholic moonshine
is often less an alcoholic than some people here who have only a 6-pack a
day of 5% beers!

My doctor has told me to go ahead and have a glass of red wine a day (& an
ounce of dark chocolate!)

She's 19 now, right?

I'm the same way -- I get more exposure than I need living in a seniors'

You know about the Jericho Disabled Sailing Club?
And the Disability Foundation?  ( http:/www.reachdisability.org ); which is one
of Mayor Sullivan's projects -- they have MANY activities available for all
ages of disabled people. . .

I think you were describing Nora as not being necessarily very physically
challenged any more? I'm sure there are transitional-type activities, too.

The main thing on the reach site is the BC Mobility Opportunities Society
(BCMOS) http://www.disabilityfoundation.org/bcmos/index.html

which is the activity arm of the Disability Foundation.

I have a friend in there who recently wheeled the BC Trail (miles & miles of
trek).

Another one to connect with is http://www.peerzone.org which is part of the
BCPA -- I've been a part of it for a number of years -- I especially find the
Public Speaking(Toastmasters) classes helpful; and really had fun last
September in the Bus Stop Hop (like "Amazing Journey" reality show, but with
wheelchairs & using Transit around Vancouver!)

There's plenty for Nora, at her age and abilities -- I think the BCMOS might be
the best to start with. . .

There's also the Disabled Skiers Association, on the North Shore. . . if she
might want to try skiing. . . (I personally plan to try the sailing before
skiing!)

Does she remember the BBS geek who showed up at Burnaby hospital to say hi one
day way back when?
