Autistic Man Brings Home First Paycheck!

Proud mom is sharing photo of my disabled son’s first paycheck given to him by his boss. My son assists in opening up Menchie’s Yogurt Shop with his job coach twice a week. I am very happy and grateful for the yogurt company supporting our disabled in the community. If you live near a Menchie–go buy some yogurt and tell them you are buying from them because they are giving jobs to folks with Autism.. Thank them with your pocket book..Would you as my friend? : )

Timberline Lodge: A Unique Perspective

Here are some photos from Mt. Hood and Timberline Lodge. The reason I wanted to share my photos with you are for historical purposes as well as beauty. This lodge was built during the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Era when he created the WPA ( Public Works Program). During the depression of the 1930’s many people found jobs through his back to work initiatives. Government can do good things as this program created eight million jobs. Many were for unskilled work, but I think it is possible we might could take some lessons from this and figure out how to help America in our current climate creating jobs. My family and I spent a lovely time up here. For additional information on FDR and the building of America in the 1930’s check this link out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Works_Progress_Administration
