I also had the pleasure of speaking at the Heart of Gold Pilot Club meeting in Cleveland Georgia over the weekend. A big thanks to all that made it possible. I decided from now on, I'm going to take my camera and take a photo of the groups I speak to as they are always taking pictures of me. It will be a nice reminder for me. My next speaking engagement starts at 6:30 a.m. -- good thing I am an early riser!
A friend of mine writes a very eloquent blog. And, she posts every week. I'm always amazed that she can write on the simplest of topics with such ease. And, I realize that it might seem "easy" to her, but it sounds like it just rolled off her tongue. I would like to think that I used to be able to do it, but not like she does. I'm impressed -- maybe when I grow up I can be like her. Thanks RF.
When I speak to groups, I often give them some a list of references to turn to regarding Alzheimer's. I don't usually have this as a handout but I need to do one. But until I do, I thought I would list some of the references here -- there are more I know -- but these are the ones currently on my power point presentation.
