      Hi all,

      Sorry for silence in the past week... I've had computer problems
      again and couldn't post emails or messages to the groups, even though
      I could view them. I am on a different computer now.

      Anyway, just to remind everyone interested that tomorrow is when we
      are meeting in London, at the Kembles Head pub, in Covent Garden
      (Long Acre), from 6pm onwards, in the upstairs room. When you arrive,
      if anyone asks, just say that you are with the HOH group (for more
      precise directions, see message #1941).

      If any of you who said they would be coming can now no longer make
      it, could you please let me know, either by posting a message here
      today, or emailing me, or sending me a text message (0776 175 5801).

      I expect they will be 9-10 of us.

      Looking forward to meeting you a few of you tomorrow!

          Hi Jeff,

          Unfortunately, from what I can remember, there is no lift. It's quite
          an old fashioned pub and the staircase is quite narrow. I'm really
          sorry, I never thought... if you think you can come to some other
          HoHUK socials in London in future, do let me know and I will try and
          find a pub that has a lift or a separate room on the ground floor. We
          won't always be meeting in pubs anyway, so when I look for venues,
          I'll keep accessibility in mind. Do you come to London often?

          Nice seeing you posting again.

          Happy b'day to your sister :)

            Hi saff

            No problem, I probably would'nt have turned up even if
            it was in an accessible place. First I'd have to try
            and slip away from the family (not easy to do).

            Sister? what on earth was I thinking? Tomorrow is my
            DAUGHTER'S birthday (she lives with my sister in
            Wembly Park) and my sister has planned a huge birthday
            party for her in a pub in Greenwhich. Starts with a
            river boat ride to Greenwhich and then the usual
            "making a lot of noise, getting drunk and being sick.
            I was simply looking for an escape and the meeting
            being on the same date seemed an ideal excuse.

            As for my not posting for a long time this is due to
            problems with my yahoo groups. Too much to explain
            here.

            I usually avoid London like the plague, Visiting only
            about twice a year, Having said that this is my fourth
            visit this year LOL

            I hope the meeting goes well for all attending

                Hi everyone,

                Sam, thanks for your message. Sorry you couldn't come, but don't
                worry, we understand. We look forward to meeting you at one of our
                next London socials.

                Well, it was great! More people turned up than expected. There were
                13 of us. Jonathan and Peter brought some HOH friends and 8 of the
                original 10 people who said they would be coming turned up. Three of
                us took the portable loop we are trying for a marketing company and
                these really did help and didn't interfere with each other, so we
                will be taking them again at the next meetings. The room was really
                suitable, as no background noise from downstairs reached the upstairs
                and there wasn't too much noise from outside either (the only noise
                was from our group, LOL). Also, incidently, at the bar downstairs,
                they have an electronic small board on the wall which displays the
                total price to pay for the drinks we have ordered, so we don't have
                to struggle to hear the waitress/waiter, or to worry about getting
                the amount wrong (downstairs, it IS noisy!). We all had a lot to talk
                about and had great fun and it was just wonderful meeting up with
                several of you and socialising in such a relaxed manner. A great
                success! Thanks everyone who came, for helping make it such a success!

                We are planning to meet once a month. I imagine that for the time
                being, we will be sticking with the same venue, since everyone seemed
                to find it very suitable, but we will also be organising some theatre
                (with Stagetext) and cinema (subtitled) outings too. In the Summer,
                we'll add some variety to the venues too. Please, for those who came
                last night, do let me know if it's OK to stick with the Kembles Head
                as the venue, for the time being. Thanks!

                We're also planning an evening out in Cambridge, to the Cambridge
                Arts Theatre, to go and see the play Romeo and Juliet, with
                Stagetext. There is also a talk with Stagetext prior to the play,
                which I'm planning to go to. There seemed to be quite a few people
                interested in going yesterday. Cambridge is only 50 minutes by train
                from Kings Cross station in London. I will be ringing the theatre
                soon, to check availability at this point in time, how many suitable
                seats they have for their loop system and if, as deaf/HOH people, we
                can get half-price tickets. Will post the info in here soon.

                I am really pleased that we have got this London group going and I
                hope that it will be an encouragement for those too far from London
                to start local HOH groups too, as I would be sorry if every HoHUK
                member interested wasn't able to benefit from such socials... they
                are really great, it's so refreshing to be able to socialise with
                people who understand and to just be able to relax and join in the
                fun... my hearing loss yesterday evening was not an obstacle to
                communication anymore.

                A very happy Saffron :)

                  one of my lecturers referred to those who use BSL as the Deaf whereas people who don't are simply known as deaf. I thought this was just deaf politics but apparently the terminology is used in academic circles. I shall be having a further discussion with this lecturer *grrr...* Just appears to be a touch insulting. What if I become a fluent BSL user AND use voice? Am I still little d? *puzzled*

                  Hi Jeff,

                  Unfortunately, from what I can remember, there is no lift. It's quite
                  an old fashioned pub and the staircase is quite narrow. I'm really
                  sorry, I never thought... if you think you can come to some other
                  HoHUK socials in London in future, do let me know and I will try and
                  find a pub that has a lift or a separate room on the ground floor. We
                  won't always be meeting in pubs anyway, so when I look for venues,
                  I'll keep accessibility in mind. Do you come to London often?

                  Nice seeing you posting again.

                  Happy b'day to your sister :)

                  Saffron

                    Matt,

                    That's the terminology I've come across too.Deaf usually applies to
                    those born prof deaf who use BSL first with or without speech and
                    deaf to those with other degrees of deafness whether born or
                    acquired who use speech and don't sign first.If you acquire BSL
                    later I would say you are still deaf unless you become a full
                    integrated member of the Deaf community and culture and consider
                    that your niche so to speak.At the end of the day it's a personal
                    thing and is still up for debate.I wouldn't worry about it -they're
                    only terms/boxes used to put people into as we so like to do in
                    life;)

                      Hi, just to point out that we have 2 Matthews in the group: Matthew
                      Rudd, who is doing the Audiology degree and Matt, who signs "Matt" at
                      the end of his messages (and who came to the meeting on Firday 3rd).
                      So as to avoid confusion, perhaps we can call Matthew Rudd "Matthew"
                      and the other Matthew "Matt"?

                      :)
