Snowmageddon Snydrome

Tuesday February 12, 2019

"I decided long ago that I would not allow Parkinson's to define my life. So I don't. Come rain, or snow, or a LOT of snow. We can't control the weather but there is such a thing as preventative measures.

Wednesday January 30, 2019

"Remember telephone switchboards? That is the job routers perform, only a lot faster than a human switchboard operator!" 


Today's technology changes fast, no denying it. But there's still reason to learn some basic principles: they move much slower! In this second of three blog posts, community member Bill Clugston breaks down the internet (figuratively speaking) and shows how it can make life easier for people with Parkinson's.
