 The Climb: New Theme Song for our blog

Attention all music lovers:  Pastor Snoopi Botten and Blake Roberts have added their magic digitalized effects to The Climb, (click on link).

Blake suggested this song become the Theme Song for the Climbing Every Mountain blog.

It’s PERFECT and their effects are pure magic.

You might remember both Snoopi and Blake shared their version of the  classic  Do You Hear What I Hear (click on the link) on Christmas Day. 

Check out their earlier post for their amazing personal stories and the details of their method for helping us all hear and see things in different ways.

Thanks to both Snoopi and Blake for being part of this community.

Last post, I shared some videos from the Norweigan Association of the Blind.Here’s a collection of videos about the IEP and Acronymns. I’m still looking for any videos or websites about the rights of adults with severe disabilities, autism and parents of adults.

I hope you will share your thoughts in the comments.

Who sould be at an IEP?

What is an IEP?

All my best,


Over to You: What do you think?

Do you have other YouTube videos to recommend? Other social media sites?

Does anyone know of any sites or videos about adults? Parenting adults with disabilities?

Funny Ads| What do you think?

The Norwegian Association of the Blind made these commercials.

What do you think?


All right, there is no excuse for not having a comment on these videos. After you laugh, think a couple minutes and then share your thoughts.

Are they Funny? Creative? Good Advertising?

Are they Insulting? Embarrassing? Bad Public Relations?

Does this ad compaign promote inclusion? normalization? stereotypical thinking?

Do you think these ads will create more jobs? Change stereotypes?

Enhance the image of people who are blind?

Does it make a difference that the commercials were created by the The Norwegian Association of the Blind?

Does it make a difference that the commercials used actors who were really blind?
