One of my kids mildly autistic, he seems “normal” but at times he obsesses about certain things, buys a new remote control toy, and must have it working immediately, can not wait and gets upset if he has to wait, like a 4 year old rather than a 14 year old.
My 9 year old who is a bit autistic, has odd fears, is terrified of cars in parking lots at times to an extreme.
I was irrationally fearful of dogs as a youngster and teenager, and I still am a bit afraid of dogs even as an adult.
I was very shy around girls when I was younger, and liked a few of them a great deal but I was so afraid of doing something wrong that I did not “even try to kiss any of them or hold their hands, I was gripped by an irrational fear at times.” I did get over it and go married, and am coming up on 18 years of marriage.
I have never been good at making friends, and besides my wife do not have any real friends. I want friends, but do not know how to make them. I am intelligent but socially slow, and my athletic skills are limited.
I recently read a 487 page book on a 3.5 hour plane flight. It seems being Asperger’s has it weaknesses and advantages.
What is Autism? For my family it is a way of life. It is normal.
Autism is a general term used to describe a group of complex developmental brain disorders known as Pervasive Developmental Disorders (PDD). The other pervasive developmental disorders are PDD-NOS (Pervasive Developmental Disorder – Not
Otherwise Specified), Asperger’s Syndrome, Rett Syndrome and Childhood Disintegrative Disorder. Many parents and professionals refer to this group as Autism Spectrum Disorders.

The weather for most of North America has been quite cold this week. I was recently in Dallas, and experienced very cold and icy conditions. It makes me appreciate the warm desert environment of Nevada a great deal more.
If anyone has any interesting cold weather experiences let me know about them and I will share your stories and thoughts. What do you think it all means?
The year 2011 is going to be the year of tablets. Apple’s iPad ruled 2010 with no real competition from other brands. Even Samsung Galaxy Tab, the best of all other was left far behind and much of market share belonged to iPad.
Just hours ago T-Mobile teased an image of a traditional pair of 3D glasses. Why did they do such a thing? Because tonight they are officially announcing the T-Mobile G-Slate with Google by LG that has, you guessed it plenty of 3D capability!
Powered by Android 3.0 Honeycomb, the 8.9″ HD 3D-capable multi-touch display on the G-Slate will include the capability to record 3D and full HD video. Expected to be available sometime this Spring, or March 23rd based on our leaked information, the G-Slate will be T-Mobile’s second 4G Tablet but certainly the first you want to seriously consider.
