I updated my entry in the ASL Literature of House-on-the-Mountain.  Take a look and tell me what you think? the last sign is "Wow, you are there!" I'm not sure if I wrote the breath mark right, but enjoy it.

It's an interesting way to tell a story in pieces as I go.

Hello Ingvild and Charles!
Yes...this is easier to write by hand, and very easy to type by computer. The two heads for facing the front corners are located right next to the plain head symbol...and it already is a part of our software, because it is in the ISWA 2008, which was finalized in 2008 and is what we are using now in SignPuddle...Here is where they are located...see attached...
