Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Do people seriously believe that the government is going to give good money to something which would enable people to have clear and lucid thoughts? The home carer allowance is a pittance and bears no relation to the demands placed on partners who bear the brunt of the burden.

Seem like he needs to work on his own clear lucid thoughts - surely a great many of these home carers ARE already looking after Dementia/Alzheimers sufferers and costing a fortune, because of govt neglect :x Some people just don't get that some things can't be prevented however much of a 'good' life you lead and/or can't be cured, just held back if there's enough investment in making life more bearable and less burdensome for everyone, but especially the sufferers and people who look after them! :roll:

Sorry. :oops:


NO.... REALLY good article Bouncy.... there is an article on the right hand side about Charlotte Church and a boiler leak and she was wondering why she had headaches for weeks...... :shock: :shock:

Ever since the gas bottle ran out and we changed it over to the second supply.... none of us have had headaches..... It has only just occurred to me. :shock: :shock: a visitor said they thought they smelt gas while we had that gas bottle in operation :shock: :shock

But the are talking about burnt gas aren't they?

Does anyone know how much is actually spent on Alzheimer's research? Can't believe its not a lot, given the size of the potential market...

Another typical Mail comment begins:

This is indeed the 'poor relation' illness - we spend thousands to rehabilitate paedophiles and rapists, but very little is done for the sufferers of this disease...
