Yesterday I attended a board meeting for the Arizona Center for Disability Law, which recently moved into the brand new Disabililty Empowerment Center. (Thanks to the Arizona Bridge for Independent Living for data on the center and the pictures on its site.) This amazing 62,000 square-foot facility is located at 5025 E Washington Street in Phoenix, and is truly designed to serve the disabled. Here are a few pictures from my visit: Raising Special Kids, the Arizona Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Joni & Friends, the Statewide Independent Living Council, Arizona Autism United, the Arizona Spinal Cord Injury Association, Valley Center of the Deaf, and PRN Medical. This is an energy efficient, green facility that is 99% environmentally friendly. Our board meeting was held in one half of the beautiful Nina Mason Pulliam Conference Center. Oh my, the sound system is incredble. While we had board members from Flagstaff and Tucson, we had teleconferencing going on with Tucson and Yuma. We had two guest speakers: Steven G. Biddle, of Littler Mendelson, and Barbara Brent, of the Arizona Department of Economic Security. Biddle presented training on Collective Bargaining Agreement, and Brent discussed the State of DDD.

My brother, David Crook, dropped off my sister-in-law for a Think Tank meeting at my house, and proceeded to visit Wildlife World Zoo & Aquarium. I was torn, but I stayed home. Here is one of his photos of a King Vulture, redigitized by his envious sister:
Here's a picture of me in my new PawFun.com T-shirt...with a picture of one of my two favorite cats: Shadow. PawFun.com is BL Ochman's fabulous new site. You gotta go there. The T-Shirt is the finest I've ever had. And you can have so much fun making cards or shirts with your pet's photo(s).
Yesterday I spotted my two cats on the back of the loveseat, snuggled down and cleaning eaching other. I caught this pose, then redigitized it, of Shadow cleaning L'il Bear.
