World Alzheimer's Day

My calendar says that today is International Banana Festival. But when I got onto Facebook, Ami Simms says that today is World Alzheimer's Day.

She said, "TELL SOMEONE! Don't know what to say? Try this: An estimated 35 million people worldwide will have Alzheimer's by next year. What to do? Make and donate a Priority: Alzheimer's Quilt. Info: Research is the answer."

Although this is now a pictureless post, I am hoping that by the end of today, there will be a photo of a quilt I am donating. I am going to make it today.

Have you heard about the research they're doing at Aberdeen University?

Really amazing stuff - and raising money for research is the first step!
