Another new page!!  We are calling it 
"The Resource Page"

With our 80-odd years of experience we are  
fountains of knowledge waiting to be tapped.

We have set up a Guest Book on the Resource Page for people to ask advice or to leave interesting tid-bits of knowledge. It's a two way street, 
so join in and ask your questions, 
large or small, serious or silly, such as:
 tips on dealing with dementia, moving, retirement communities, travel, who lives near me, etc. 
And/or share your wisdom and experience.
Click on the puzzled lady on the left 
to go to the new page.
