Feedback:
I have to say that what I printed from your website and looked over last night at home was STERLING -- By this morning I can sign "I am, I shall, I can, with, but, cooking, learning, go, sleep, learn. It is very clearly laid out.  I am doing this because a dear friend of mine
is going deaf from Meniere's Disease...and I don't want to lose
communications with him.  Meanwhile - I find this so intriguing that I feel I want to help deaf children all of a sudden.  I am 52 and this is not the time to change professions midstream!!! - or is it?
