Dear SW List:
Recently a Deaf guest from Ireland, Shane Gilchrist, visited us here in La Jolla, and suddenly there were Deaf friends visiting in my home, from all over San Diego!

It was a lot of fun for me in particular, because I have been a bit isolated here - 

I learned a few signs that were new to me. One of them is the name of the city where I live, La Jolla, California.

The sign for La Jolla is similar to the sign for California, except the hand stays in one place while shaking… I just wrote it in the ASL SignPuddle Dictionary:

What is the sign for YOUR city?

Val ;-)
