Google plans to shut down G+ (the consumer edition) by August 2019. Is it worth it to still post valuable presentations like neuroscientist and Still Alice author, Lisa Genova powerful TED talk last year? A vividly clear illustration of how Alzheimer's damages the brain awaits those who click on the link.

Reflecting upon caregiving for a loved one with Alzheimer's years ago versus what we know today. Martin Avadian looking at the first edition (hardcover) of "Where's my shoes?" My Father's Walk through Alzheimer's. (The grammatically incorrect question he'd ask, repeatedly, while living with my husband and me in our California home.) #Alzheimer #caregiving #caregiverinterview

Actress, Author, and #Caregiver, Kathryn Leigh Scott is a hero for caring for her (late) husband Geoff Miller, founding editor of Los Angeles Magazine. He lived with a rare form of #dementia - progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and fell a LOT!

A wonderful windy hike to the top of Mt. Baden Powell, named after the founder of the Boy Scouts. A new U.S. flag waves proudly in the wind with a wooden sign: 9,407-feet (2,867 meters).
EIGHT-mile round-trip (past the 1,500 year old Wally Waldron tree)
Starting at Vincent Gap - 6,600-feet. Less than 2.5 hours up and a 1/2 hour break at the top. Down in 1.5 hours. On the rare clear day you can see the ocean.
