First topic message reminder :



I have been busy setting up a PD branch in Roscommon, the nearest branch is in Galway, that is an hours drive from me.
Our first meeting is on the 12th Sept.
Lets hope we can help someone newly diagnosed with PD. as I had nobody to talk too, actually I did not know what PD was. "I FELT SO ALONE"

I hope everyone will have a great week.

Do you go to Spain every year Clem.

I do like Pea soup Emma

I still do most of the things I want to do.
I did get called John Boy back then.
It was a great feel good show, good family entertainment, its likes are not produced anymore.


So its breaky time and then get some work done,

Hope everyone is well and I will see if I can find the Waltons Theme song.

G'morning everybody.

See my front porch: firewood, cut split and dried ready for the stove. I will survive and enjoy another winter I presume.

It has been a beautiful Fall here as well.

Well, I still have PD,
It won't seem to go away
I could eat Chicken soup
Almost every friggen day.

Unlike a bad head cold
Or flu that will pass
PD is here and sticking
A real pain in the ass

But I am getting by okay
I have to. Now lets see?
Chicken soup for colds
Perhaps pea soup for PD?



now everybody have a good day!

Hello Everyone,

Clem, I like your common sense rundown on things,
Patsie, nice pictures and jokes
Lucy, I was watching the skies on Halloween night for you
Em, I hope Sean had a happy Birthday,
Marie, hope all is good

I certainly hope that everyone is getting bye okay.

here is a little joke a friend sent to me today.


A wise old man was asked, "At your ripe age, what would you prefer to get – Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s?"

The wise one answered, "Definitely Parkinson’s. Better to spill half an ounce of Rum, than to forget where you keep the bottle!"


Talk later, be strong and good everyone, jb

Morning Ireland,

Its a cloudy day here again, but I am awake, moving about and had hot oatmeal and able to go to work and have work to go to. Hey, that is all great, right!

I have been watching a mini series on tv this fall about the Titantic, Great story about the building of it so far, featuring the Irish shipyard and men and labour unions and so much more. Good stuff to watch.

So, gotta go

HOpe everyone has an Echo Beach day.

Good morning to you all.
I hope everyones pills work good for them today. I think since my sinemet got increased, my delicate tummy is a tad upset. I am such fragile flower.

Don't believe that!! But yuck, I hate pills,

Anyways, my garden was done in August, well much of it was. I replanted a few rows and now have lots of green lettuce, radishes the size of potatoes, onions, Kohrabi, Swiss Chard and spinach. All this grows despite frost that turns the grass white. Funny that one,



Good days to all
Hi Marie

off to work he goes like a flash

More heart wrenching than heart warming I bet Clem. When I think of those poor people who have nothing I do feel guilty when I think of what my own children have. Fair play to anyone who helps out there.

First – apologies for leaving the chat box so suddenly. My brother was calling on Skype.

Second – my compliments to Sean. The country will need business talent.

Jb –your economic comments are valid. – your comments got me thinking

Remember when Ireland joined the EU. There were all sorts of financial grants to improve the country.

For example, Coilte (a forestry company) made huge investments in machinery. There were incentives to get the machines. The company needed fewer workers. Employing them meant extra tax PRSI, pension etc.. Net effect of this and similar schemes was unemployment in rural areas where there was no other work available. So there was a “flight from the land”

More recently countries from Eastern Europe joined the EU. So existing countries – including Ireland had to pay into a fund to help the newcomers improve their economies. Companies such as Dell were paid money (this included Irish money) to move production to Poland. The result: More unemployment in Limerick and elsewhere.

Now we have this austerity. Do not be misled. We didn’t cause it. Germany is the real culprit. But the Germans are in a position to force us to pay for their failures. The present situation cannot be sustained. The future is gloomy – unless we do something radical about it
