tomato take two, end alz day, video

ok will try this again
i use google to do this blog
for some reason it doesnt like this picture of this tomato
i agree it does look scary
this tomato may actually make it on a local garden show
my wife she and her students are making a project out of
monitoring it as it develops

the person who owned this tomato had her electricity go out
at her house (no she did not live in san diego)
the tomato was left in this hot environment and according
to gardening people consulted the tomato acted like a
hot house for the tomato seeds

here is attempt number two

dang thats an ugly tomato


todays the day
its end alz day
alzheimers action day
wear something purple
a dress, a shirt, necklace, earrings, shoes, pants
to symbolize your support against this awful disease

my wife she and i will be making a video today at ut southwestern
medical center with a staff neurologist today
we of course will have our purple shirts on to support the end alz

the video will be used to teach medical students and residents how
to do mental status exams on patients being evaluated for dementia
think maybe practicing doctors should also consider watching this

wish i knew what i know now about alzheimers and its evaluation
when i was practicing medicine in the clinic
would sure have done a better job caring for patients and finding
them with problems earlier

go purple today
