Remember, disabled does Not mean unable!
#DisabledNotUnable Is the mission of jhbonline.net
Our focus is making people with disabilities (physical, emotional and educational) more visible in society...to increase awareness
and create opportunity for greater participation.
We also have areas focused on my personal experience in the fields of entertainment, figure skating and pageants!
The one resolution, which was in my mind long before it took the form of a resolution, is the key-note of my life. It is this,
always to regard as mere impertinences of fate the handicaps which were placed upon my life almost at the beginning. I resolved
that they should not crush or dwarf my soul, but rather be made to blossom, like Aaron's rod, with flowers.

So glad one of your dreams came true Rory! Player of the year! Third time!
Here’s one of mine Rory McIlroy : Bucket List Dream #2 (Revision) via @YouTube
I worry about a future in which we have trial by social media rather than #DueProcess Some are guilty, others are not but
as Elle Woods said in #LegallyBlonde:
“Don’t you have to have like....Evidence?”
Someone just told me:
“A closed mouth doesn’t get fed!”
That said I’m happy to be past the age where I feel the need to share every opinion and feeling on social media.
I worry we have forgotten how to be happy!,
Im my opinion, it is one of the causes in the rise of anxiety among young people...and even us older folks ! Is that really
helping anyone or anything?
Toward that end...
Just my two cents....for what it’s worth...
I understand that people feel they are offering advice in the best interest of others, but fellow adults, I believe
that what you eat, like who you love it up to you. No one know what is best for You Except You!
Something About I’ve recently discovered:
COMPLAINING DOES NOT EQUAL CHANGING!
Don’t know if it’s already been said but makes sense to me!
IN my experience, it takes more than simply pointing out a problem to change things! The next step is finding a path toward
For example, make a list of realistic steps or objectives that YOU can achieve toward your goal.... and take action one objective
at a time, so you don’t feel overwhelmed!
Posting and tweeting are a great start to expressing yourself but inspiring yourself creates lasting benefits!
Yes, Somebody should do something! Don’t forget, #YouAreSomebody
I know people don’t like change. I don’t. That’s why I prefer “transition,”
For me, that means you don’t have to lose EVERYTHING to move in a new direction!
If you want to know how we got where we are politically In 2019.. watch these old Murphy Brown clips! We were present when
they were filmed... especially if you're too young to remember... please make time to watch classic @MurphyBrownShow clip

My friend Sent me this, it describes how I feel about the world right now on and off social media...
In the Sufi tradition it is suggested that our thoughts should pass through three gates. At the first gate, we ask of our
thought, “Is it true?” If so, we let the thought pass through to the second gate, where we ask, “Is it necessary
or useful?” If this also is so, we let the thought continue on its way to the third gate, where we ask, “Is this
thought rooted in love and kindness?” Judgmental thoughts, which are neither true, helpful, nor kind, falter at the
Just got this from a friend!
I know some will disagree...
But I think it’s clever:
A Wish to Live Forever
I met a magical fairy yesterday who said she would grant me one wish.
“I wish to live forever,” I said.
“Sorry,” said the fairy, “I’m not allowed to grant that particular wish.”
“Fine,” I said, “then I want to die the day after Congress is filled with honest, hard-working, bipartisan
men and women who act only in the people's best interests!”
“You crafty buzzard,” replied the fairy.

HOW WE MET:
To me, the most important title Kurt holds is "My Buddy." We met in 1988 at the World Championships in Budapest, Hungary.
It was outside the arena. Mom was busy trying to fit my wheelchair into the trunk of the small (understatement) Soviet-made
automobile being used to being used to transport us from the hotel to the arena and back. I saw someone running out of the
back of the building. It turned out to be Kurt! Because there was no such thing as accessible seating, my wheelchair was put
on a platform at rinkside near where Kurt had accomplished his famous "Quad". That was a good thing. He wasn't very famous
in those days --especially to an American, like me! I might not have recognized him.
He rapped on the car window, but they weren't electric... and I didn't have the strength to roll them down. So mom had
to stop what she was doing to help me. I congratulated him on the Quad. Kurt simply said: "I just wanted to tell you... you
are the best fan!" With that, he was gone.
Years later I found out others had told him about me. I had been attending competitions since 1981, and had been fortunate
enough to be befriended by many skaters.
Our dear friend, Rosalynn Sumners has been instrumental in bringing us together.Thanks Roz! We love you!!!

@KURTBROWNING #30years March 26, 1988-2018
30 Years Ago Today In Budapest, Hungary my life was changed when I met Kurt Browning outside the arena at the 1988 World Figure
Skating Championships. One day earlier he landed the first ratified quadruple jump (a toe loop) in competition. He would go
on to win 4 Canadian and World titles, as well as many other honours...but that day he became my friend!
This is a short video I made to mark the occasion!
Since then, Kurt & I have formed a lasting and enduring friendship, which has truly changed my life. I have been extremely
blessed to experience the incredibly warm and caring personal side of this extraordinary man.
Kurt & I may not be as close as were once were, but I hope you'll enjoy reading about our backstage adventures!
Very cool ! @KurtBrowning wish I could see you! Miss you bud!
Who says old men can’t skate? But isn’t a backflip pushing it? Very cool but kind of scary....
Congrats to my friends Pia Wurtzbach and Lily Tomlin for trending #1 and #2 on Facebook this Morning! Pia was and will always

#pageants #figureskating #EVERYONE
Do people who post nasty/negative comments on social media really think
they're being helpful? Don't get it. Don't need it. Don't want it. #NotHere
‪#RantOfTheDay Reach out both sides! Or nothing will get done. My way or the highway never helps anyone! #WhyIDeletePoliticalSocialMedia‬
Probably wouldn't be influenced by anything I read on social media anyway! We must communicate today for any hope of hearing
each other.... too many absolutes and chest puffing, name calling and hysteria by all....compromise is our only hope, rant
of the day OVER.... not that many paid attention or agreed anyway! And that's ok . I love ❤️ you! And
I wish you all the best but I refuse to get depressed or sick over this!
Sent to me by a friend... so true!
I want to remind you that success in life is based on hard slogging. There will be periods when discouragement is great and
upsetting, and the antidote for this is calmness and fortitude and a modest yet firm belief in your competence. Be sure that
your priorities are in order so that you can proceed in a logical manner, and be ever mindful that nothing will take the place

the test of time.

I am a Rory McIlroy fan, this shows why,...
I applaud all Olympians...you are a joy to watch, unfortunately we are forced to view these fine achievement through media
both mainstream and social who often filter their agenda through your achievements...this happens in all activities including
pageants, fan pages, we are a TMZ , we all have a voice and we have a responsibility to use these public commentary opportunities
Sometimes I think of leaving FB/twitter because of this but I will not allow those I've net never met to steal my joy... you
shouldn't either... you are all heroes!!
