Don Wiley (aka Gold Wingnut) just reached an incredible milestone, having released his 100th Villages construction update video.
The video itself is fantastic, but more importantly as you’ll learn about right at the beginning, it’s also an effort to raise funds for the American Cancer Society and the National Brain Tumor Society. I hope you’ll join me in supporting Don’s mission to raise funds for these two organizations.

Here’s what else I’m reading and watching this week:

Having witnessed a grandparent’s slow decline and death from the disease, I think it’s pretty cool that this level of Alzheimer’s prevention/treatment is available right here in The Villages:
