I know I haven't written in a long time. Sorry about that -- couldn't think of much to say. The Public Policy Forum is coming up soon in Washington -- you can get more information at I guess they are callingit Action Summit this year -- anyway -- I have some conflicting things going on and I'm trying to make it work. Please let me know if any of you that read this are going so if I decide to go we can meet up.

I'm off to Starkville Mississippi in an hour or so to see our UGA Women's basketball team play a game there. I promise I will write more tomorrow when I return.

Thousand Mile Stare

I know I wrote about this book back in December -- but it is now in book stores and I want you to read this book! Gary Reiswig writes about Alzheimer's in his family and it is not only heartbreaking, it is real and from the heart. Everyone needs to read this -- we have to find a cure for everyone -- and especially for families like Gary's. Gary's research reveals a lot and you get a chance to read some things about Alzheimer's that you normally don't have access to. He has done all the work -- please take some time to read this book. If you can't find Thousand Mile Stare at your bookstore, go to the website and order it -- you won't be sorry.

CBS Alzheimer's Piece

In case you missed the segment on CBS News last night here it is -- worth watching.

Someone asked if the February 8th day at the Capitol was Awareness Day -- and it is for Georgia but not nationwide -- the nationwide event is usually in November if I remember correctly -- and that's saying a lot!

Happy New Year

I know I haven't posted in awhile -- hope everyone made it through the holidays o.k.

Wanted to bring your attention to a few Alzheimer's related things coming up -- On Tuesday, January 12th the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric will air a 6 minute segment on Alzheimer's entitled "Where American Stands on Alzheimer's". A three generation family will be interviewed with two the generations diagnosed with the disease. I hope you will tune in to watch and let CBS know how much we appreciate them airing it!

February 8th is Alzheimer's Awareness Day at the Capitol in Atlanta. We need everyone there -- here is a link to the Georgia Chapter's site for more information. Please make plans now to attend.
