    Where is everyone?

    Morning all... Spamer... I think you are right about people and computers, but I suppose as time moves on, more and more will be coming here that are computer savvy? As a teacher starting in the 80's, I was just in the start of this then, new revolution. It changes so much and so fast, it's...

    Do we need to get dancing?

    Good Morning Lawson58.. Hope he is feeling better and able to take dog out for walk!? Finn gives me a reason to get out. Most morning, weather permitting, we get to the park about 6.. he sits on my chair and we hurtle down there and then he does his thing why I take in the quiet, peace and...

    Are you an animal?

    Hi DennyD and thanks for the reply! There is a lot to be said for being Vegan and there does seem to be a lot of health benefits! It seems to me that the two main type of diets that aim to help with dementia, seem to opposites, or that me be my perception! I'm not sure!? Interest about your...

    What is happening in AS funded Research?

    I am reading, watching and hearing about everything I can to do with dementia... I think this is most likely a normal response to getting a diagnosis. So, because AS raises money to fund Research, I wanted to know what they were looking into and what has passed research found. All the...

    Are you an animal?

    I've been looking at diet and dementia. It is obvious that this must play a vitally import role when considering time before and time after dementia occurs. However, I can't change what my eating habits were before, but I can do now and this has left me in a bit of a dilemma! Research that I...

    Professionals here to help?

    Altruistic and Pharmaceutical Companies... just don't seem to together somehow! I never understand that selling a few of something that cost a lot... only benefit the few and those that can afford it... rather than selling more at a lower price and benefitting all that need it! I'm sure they...
