    I know what you mean - a friend of mine at work may have breast cancer. It puts things into perspective doesn't it?

    My husbands just returned from a football match and on the way witnessed a car accident in which 2 young men died at the scene. Who can say what's around the corner?

    I really must work on that folder that was suggested in another thread - the one labelled "what to do if..."

    Sobering thoughts all round

    Dear All,

    It does make sense to live each day as if were your last, doesn't it?

    Dear All

    When people say (as they do) "there is nothing for getting old" I always reply "It is better than the alternative"

    Cheers Barraf

    Hello everyone
    I have a friend in our village whose husband has secondary cancer and in a lot of pain so I try to count my blessings that my husband isn't in pain with AD. There has to be a silver lining somewhere with this illness.
