Our second guests are Greg O'Brien, veteran journalist who has dementia and Dr. Molly Perdue. Greg has been featured in several news features and has written the book On Pluto: Inside the Mind of Alzheimer’s. This book is about living with Alzheimer’s, not dying with it. It is a book about hope, faith, and humor—a prescription far more powerful than the conventional medication available today to fight this disease.

Many of us are uneducated in the world of aging....We fail to tap into our sensitivity as we see our aging parents and grandparents...Sometimes we even assume that their cry for help through forgetfulness, is just a means for attention.
How is it possible at the age of 78 to remember what was taught during our toddler stages, but forgetting we graduated with honors from a prestigeious college? How can we remember how to cook during golden years, but forget we gave birth to 4 beautiful children?
How does it feel when you own mother no longer recognizes you? Or your dad never remembers you name?
Let us open the door to Dementia and allow the details to be shared with us....

This show is about living with Quails.
Believe me. It's not easy. They are all kinds of trouble. And herding them is about as difficult as herding cats. Oh. And don't get me started about Cats.
The stories I could tell you.
But, back to Quails. We have big quails and little quails and all sizes in between.
But when you have a husband, who is named after the Quail, and whose great great grandfather, the Ornatholigist discoverded that Quail and is famous … well … that's hard to live down.
