I love how you signed "raspberry" on your middle finger (near the end when you were recalling all the berries).

Keep them vlogs coming!

LOL! Yeah, I noticed that...I was using the listing sign and signed raspberry with the finger that was relevant to it. Decided not to redo the video because of one silly slip-up. ;)

Just finally watching your vlog, Just curious, won't you be confused between the signs of cranberry and champagne?

@Christine: a very good question! Others have asked the same thing. I thought about it and realized that with the sign for CHAMPAGNE, it also has the 'S' classifier for the weak hand and the "flick" for the dominant hand. I think that helps distinguish the two signs. Plus, for CRANBERRY, the "flick" is done multiple times while for CHAMPAGNE, the bottle pops once so the "flick" movement is once. That make sense? =)

I love it. I learned many new signs, thank you! The way I've always signed cherry is (weak hand) my left '2' hand and right 'extended o' hand. It's signed the same as 'berry' but touchest the 1st finger, then the 2nd.
I am hearing and have little knowlege but I hope this helps some people.

And for goose berry, I think you can fingerspell it, or you can sign 'goose' and 'berry'.
I learned from the canadian dictionary of ASL that the sign for goose is signed like 'duck', but the right three hand closes once and slides across your left arm representing the neck.
So in ASL, sign 'duck' arm, arm show neck. I hope that's a descent translation, my ASL grammar is bad :/
