Is the number three more dynamic than the number two? When it comes to groupings the number two does have some great "duos": Adam and Eve, salt and pepper, Thing One and Thing Two, and peanut butter and jelly. However, we do have many famous threesomes: Larry, Moe, and Curly, The Three Little Pigs, The Three Musketeers, and the list goes on and on. My personal preference leans to the odd numbers. I don't know why, that's just how I roll! Anyhoo, I guess now couldn't be a better time to introduce my new regular weekly post, Three Simple Things. I'll be focusing on the simple things in life. It could be anything from the three best kitchen layouts for the disabled, three amazing pizza toppings, or maybe three things we take advantage of in our day-to-day lives. Anything and everything will be broken down into Three Simple Things. Some of the posts will be geared towards the disabled while others may be taken from the deep recesses of my mind (and that can be a scary place people). So let's begin with my very first Three Simple Things...
I love gadgets! Whether it's kitchen or just your everyday use, gotta have lots of them gadgets, I can't get enough! When it comes to gadgets which ones make life truly easier for us disabled folks?
1. I cook a lot! That being said sometimes certain tasks become difficult for me. Using a traditional can opener can be hard when my hand gets a painful, dystonia cramp. Hands free can openers are perfect for people with dystonia, arthritis, and many other disabilities. You can find them at www.zyliss.com
2. This is a wonderful pen! I am a retired teacher and my old life used to be full of grading and marking papers. If you have trouble gripping your pen then an ergonomic pen is your answer. You can find different types of ergonomic pens at www.wrightstuff.biz
3. My third gadget is technically not a gadget but more of an adaptive device. I love my Hurrycane! It is without a doubt the best cane I have used. It makes walking on uneven ground so much easier. And it comes in a variety of colors so you can always rock it! You can find it at www.hurrycane.com
There you have it the first, Three Simple Things!
