    Some time ago I did a quick trawl [well it took a while, actually], with the result below. I wanted to see the countries, rather than the continents ... if you get my drift. [...continental drift... :D ]

    Thanks Bruce for the previous results. If you went through the Members list it must have taken ages. Countries would have been better but I wasn't sure I knew all of them. In fact I didn't have a notion of all the Nations. ;)
     
  4. Well, I've added where I'm from.

    Europe.

    Narrow it down.

    Great Britain...

    Close in...

    Lancashire, England...

    Now focus...

    Wigan!

    Yep, I'm from the place of pies, George Formby songs etc. etc. and for those who want to know a wee bit more about my fair town, I produced this wee bit of info.

  6. We have indeed Norman - and I only live approx. 10 mins. walk away from the ground.

    Not a fan - although Mrs. D. is a supporter (I have been to matches in the past with her though... not my cup of tea I have to say... but then again, I don't drink tea either - so tea isn't my cup of tea! :D ).

    I quite like the town on the whole... not a bad place to live really.

    :)

    I would love to contact anyone from Spain..although it looks rather slim..

    Me and my youngest are moving to Spain next year..all very exciting and a little scary!!!!

    Just sourcing schools for her A level studies out there.

    So, if anyone Spanish is about would love to natter sometime!!!

    Gracias...Hasta luego amigos!!!

  9. Grief - you've reminded me here... I don't live there now... I live in Westhoughton, which comes under 'Bolton'!

    Weird thing... we come under Bolton Council, have a Bolton postcode, yet live nearer to Wigan and have a Wigan telephone code number...

    So basically... where the HELL am I then geographically and physically?

    As for spiritually... I'll leave that - I'm confused enough as it is!

    :D

    Michael, just check out the member list - many people - for reasons of identification, most likely, don't state much detail.

    I'd assume that those who have not stated their origin are mostly from the UK.

    Hi Mel: - do you have contact with Stanton Day Hospital (Bakewell) - wonderful crowd there. David presently goes on Monday and Thursday (I usually go in too on Thursday afternoon).
    There are some good Alzheimer Cafes in the area - PM me if you are interested or want to know more. Beckyjan

    Hi All

    Anyone on here from North Norfolk?

    Asking for my Mum really as she lives in Sheringham and looks after my Dad at home - and is really struggling for support. He has AD TIA's and appears to be developing paranoia now as well (ho hum!). I know she'd love to be able to sit and share experiences with people in the same situation over a cup of tea!
