Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Posted: 22/10/2014 at 20:31

Had a phone call from local authority re my comments about the care home my mum's in.  A large number of changes from manager, her deputy, to way care is presented have been adopted.  I have noticed this past week or more that standards are so much better.  I said that all carers should have reasonable training re dementia and that on admission to a home the family should have a meeting with the care home to,discuss what happens,,what we should expect, etc.  This too is now in place.

Saw my mum today....she seems happy and content but a nearby residential home....superb.....is a possibility for her.  Still unreal to talk to my mum now ...6 months ago she was sharp and clear thinking.

Empty Space??

No Dove is an "in charge", highly competent, very kind, caring and easily given to humour.  She was part,of,the Monty python team 

Ginglygangly?  Skinny and very very tall.  Not too bothered by what people  may think?  

Rose of Sharon,Hypericum androsaemum

This hypericum produces suckers and these can be removed and grown on.  I see it as a cross between calycinum and the shrubby types.  Never grown this one though simply because it has an element of being invasive

I would dig it up now and check out the root system.  Maybe pull it apart or sever suckers.  Cut back the bush to ground level or a little above.  Hypericums usually flower on current season's wood so I would expect this to be the same. i really don't think you will lose or damage it Alan

KEF I imagine to be serious with a cheeky twist, someone with an authorative air.  Cannot tell sizes of women.

Digger?  Wiry, lean and hard working?  

Beaus mum?  A dog lover. Young....should still be at school 

Lily......kind, mature laid back?

However, I await with mischievous curiosity the comments about how we possibly all are.  Have I stirred a hornets' nest here ?

No, not "just like that"  but curiosity eggs me on to imagine what the forum members look like or behave 

Frank's post on the Gonzales thread suggests he is a dancer.  Quite a good one too.  a dapper fellow, disciplined and correct.  Some of the "handles" suggest a sense of humour.....Tootles,  Cangranmafixit etc 

No need to give any personal info away or respond (to keep folks guessing frustratingly

Just a bit of fun?

My impression too Frank, viz., your are a dance expert......No?

......opportunity for a new thread here methinks

Lawn problems

Nothing  will really work.  Stop your dog or live with what he/she does on it.  You can't watch the dog all the time and follow with buckets of water. Anyway, the damage will still be just as bad .  Sorry
