Walk for Lupus Now Events for early May 2008, Other LFA-Related Updates

Morning everyone ... well the arrival of spring here in DC was short lived. It's cool outside and raining. I think this is supposed to last thru mid-week. But 70 degree temps may return Thursday. I'll be waiting patiently.

Saw an older thriller over the weekend: 1979's When A Stranger Calls. Beginning was great. End was great. The middle was dull.

Couple of lupus-related updates to share, so let's get down to business.

Walk for Lupus Now
