It's been busy here. Alan and Jennifer are back in Georgia. Alan is spending time back and forth between here and Atlanta. He was here for several days this week leaving the house full of laughter but also a mess! It's always good to have him home though. He is studying for the bar so we tried not to bother him too much. Some close friends held a shower this past weekend for them and it was a lovely event. There were about 25 people there and we enjoyed visiting with everyone.
The latest issue of the Georgia chapter's newsletter is out. Our trip to Washington DC is chronicled in there. The web address is http://www.alz.org/georgia/documents/Summer08.pdf
August 3rd the PBS channels will be showing the show "The Forgetting". If you haven't seen this before it is worth watching. It is based on the book by David Shenk and chronicles some families that have been living with this disease in their family as well as some of the technical aspects of the disease. It came out several years ago but it is worth seeing again. I'll also update you as we get closer to the BBC America series on Alzheimer's which is going to run at the end of the month. It will be on the BBC America newshour at 7:00 p.m. eastern time (check your local listings). It is a four part series dealing with Alzheimer's around the world. It starts on July 28th.
