During the month of June, the Alzheimer’s Association asks people around the world to take the Purple Pledge and use their brains to fight Alzheimer’s disease. My grandmother passed from this dreaded disease. This impacts families all over the world and there needs to be a cure.

Bonus Tunes Tuesday – Glen Campbell – “Rhinestone Cowboy”

Glen Campbell is a noted musician, country music artist and entertainer. He has many top hits to his resume and his career has spanned decades. In the past few years he has battled Alzheimer’s and today he passed away at age 81. This is probably his greatest hit and most famous song, “Rhinestone Cowboy”. Rest in peace, Glen.
