We learned today that BLOOM won bronze in the 2010 Digital Magazine Awards in the health and beauty category (not sure why they are paired together!). Our brilliant designer Sara Purves had put in an entry which was a fabulous surprise to me.
Flame is a band from upstate New York made up of people with a variety of physical and developmental disabilities. Check them out.
And finally, next Friday I'll be in Ottawa at a national roundtable on the health of parents of children with disabilities. As part of this roundtable, I'm filling out a survey on Oct. 28 (tomorrow!). I'd love your input on the following two questions:

2. What needs to happen to support families of children with disabilities more effectively?
Remember, this is in relation to the health of parents! Please send me your thoughts!
