About Us

Welcome to the Brookston family blog. We'll post updates here on what's going on in our part of the world, and especially with our son, Porter, who has been diagnosed with some form of autism. Our hope is that this blog will help us deal with all the issues we'll be facing and keep our friends and family informed as well.

The Train at the Zoo

Categories: Porter, Alice, J, Friends, Poll — J @ 11:18 am

The other day, Porter and T.J. visited the San Francisco Zoo. Porter, not surprisingly, was most keen to ride the zoo train, but it didn’t open until noon, about two hours after we arrived. So just after twelve, we headed over to the train station.

Here we go!

Here it is even more forcefully.

You’ve Been Polled

Categories: Poll — J @ 10:38 am
I decided to try another poll. The last one I did was over a year ago but I didn’t like the software for that one. But now blogflux has a pretty decent looking free one, so I thought I’d try again. I’ve always liked polls, so I hope it works out. If it does, you’ll likely see a poll or two each week. So I encourage everybody to cast their vote.

It’s very simple to vote. You just make your selection by clicking on the small circle to the left of your choice and then click on the link entitled “Add My Vote.” As soon as you vote, you’ll be able to see the poll results so far. And once you’ve voted, each time you check back it will show the latest results.

As for this first one, pick the item on this blog you’d most like to see more of, assuming you’re a regular reader. If your favorite is not on the list, go ahead and post it as a comment.
