red letter day

I realize I should have mentioned this earlier in the week, but today is Go Red for Women Day, sponsored by the American Heart Association. Women are more likely to die of heart disease than any other cause, especially as they get older. But, the symptoms of a heart attack in women are not the same as in men and not nearly as well-publicized. Get informed. Protect yourself. I've just signed up, won't you?

Hi Annette! I wore red today too... I knew about the Go Red for Women day, but in my early morning haze, I forgot that it was actually today! Thank goodness I wear a lot of red anyway :P

Great to hear from you on my blog. Take care!
