This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

There is nothing like a good book...




I am reading two good books, THE LOST SYMBOL and THE 36 HOUR DAY...


I really enjoyed Dan's other book, The DiVinci Code, but did not care for the movie.

The other book, is imperative reading for anyone going through the twisted jigsaw puzzle of Alzheimer's and Dementia. THE 36 HOUR DAY by Nancy Mace M.A. and Peter Rabins, M.D.


I'm almost to the end of  Chapter 15 in THE LOST SYMBOL, and it is soooooooo good! It's about the power of the brain and collective thought.... One of my most favorite topics...

The 36 HOUR DAY is the Bible for answering questions and seeking guidance when a loved one has this dreaded disease.  Excellent book.  I highly recommend it.

Russell, the tribal leader of Galoo on Survivor, just passed out due to dehydration.  His heart rate was 97 while lying down and dropped to 67 when he sat up, making him black out.  Scary stuff!

I had planned on working on my collage today, but my errands took longer than I thought... I am meeting a friend for lunch tomorrow, but between the morning and the evening, I hope to finish it...

That's all I got today... Donna, out....
