Re: what do you miss about your hometown?

All I miss is what it used to be before a "Development Corporation" moved in on it. A sleepy country market town transformed into an overspill for some of the nastier parts of Birmingham without a thought for what they were destroying. At a stroke it went from somewhere pleasant to grow up to somew...

Re: What a day!

What you need is a quiet space on your own with a nice cup of tea and a decent gardening programme on the i-player (currently watching Beechgrove Garden holding a cup of tea with bedroom door firmly shut - guess I can empathise on your day!).

Re: Alzheimer.

Dear Eddy, I've been "lurking" on this site for a while, but have now signed up so I can reply to you. I'm sorry to hear your news. My dad had Alzheimer's almost 20 years ago, and I'm sure things have improved greatly. However, as your brain scan has come back clear, please ensure that they are test...
