Dr. DeafBowTie: "Missing Money?"

Are you aware that you may have missing money?

Unclaimed money from bank accounts, insurance policies, and safe deposit boxes could be hanging out unclaimed in your name or your family members!

I want you to know that you can find and claim missing money for free.  How?

It's particularly easy if you have a unique last name. Simply go to MissingMoney.com or Unclaimed.org and punch in your name to do a database search of available unclaimed funds across all states. With one click of your mouse, you can cover the entire spectrum of what's available. Please note that not every single state participates.

When I have a new client, I entered the name and found money for either himself or his relative. It happened to a few clients of mine.  Even one of my daughters forgot her last pay check when she was in the college and moved out.  When the money is lost, it gets held by the state until someone comes looking for it.  If too long, the budget-drained state may use the money up.

So go check it out!  Be a hero to a loved one or friend or to yourself. It's free to use.

Deaf Diversity Directory (Old Name:The Red Notebook)

Deaf Diversity Directory (DDD)

We will be updating "Deaf Community Contacts" using new 2014 critera. This resource was originally developed in 1979 for THE RED NOTEBOOK, under the title: "The Quick Guide to the Deaf Community."  We have been testing it in recent days. We agree that the title name should be brief so we will tentatively rename it DEAF DIVERSITY DIRECTORY.   The target users would be reference librarians, information / communication specialists / cultural programmers and researchers and the related and who need a quick guide to information about deaf cultures and resources that are available from four types of organizations: academic, school, public and special (i.e. nonprofits, for business, museums, hospitals, others) 

Most importantly, it would be a valuable digital resource for the future Deaf Culture Digital Library anywhere in America.

Once Every 823 Years! August 2014 has 5-5-5...

From a newsletter of my mutual areas of Leisure World, a senior community --  " This August will have 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. This happens only once every 823 years.  That means the next time will be in the year 2837."  Wonder our future children's life would be like?


Many thanks to Nancy Chough for sharing this info!
