  1. Good morning!!

    Oh, my. I am so very sorry that you lost your dear horse, Peace. I can imagine how awfully painful it is. I'm so touched by how the Lord showed His love to you (and your horse) through this experience. Am thinking of you and will pray for you. Take good care of yourself. Linda
  2. Good morning!!

    Love, love, love your pink gloves!!
  3. Good morning!!

    LOL! Thanks for sharing that with us, LAD. I can attest to the fact that there are many people living life to the fullest at 100 and beyond in the Independent living level of the senior living communities. Some of them are really characters and a lot of fun to be around. These communities are not as they used to be. They are very active, with lots of things going on all the time. Trips, dances, dinners, baseball teams, bowling, golfing, jogging, concerts, groups who do projects for the disadvantaged and other various volunteer groups, Happy Hours, college courses, book clubs, movies, vegetable and flower gardening, woodworking, yoga classes, swimming, dance classes, fitness center workouts, theater outings, day trips, cruises...and I could go on and on. There are four very large bulletin boards in the main area filled with postings announcing all of the goings on. The other night I was coming into the main lobby to get my mail after having gone grocery shopping and who should I almost run into but Elvis, who crossed my path on his way to perform somewhere nearby.
  4. Music and Parkinson's Disease

    Thank you, MM. I thought you would know a way. J--Have you been able to try this? Sure hope it will work!
  5. Music and Parkinson's Disease

    Hi, J. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I was away from the site to catch up with the news. I wonder if anyone knows a way that you could download to a site on line through which the sound could be adjusted? Bob, do you by any chance know of anything like this that could help?
  6. Music and Parkinson's Disease

    Awesome! What is your favorite song of all to sing?
  7. Music and Parkinson's Disease

    Bob, just for the record, I liked your soft, sweet, perfect version of It's Too Late best. Really so nice. I hope you'll keep posting them.
  8. Music and Parkinson's Disease

    Lad, that was just lovely. You and your DH are exactly in sync and step and with such grace. I loved this and can only imagine how fun it will be to see more if you can get them at the dance. Have fun.
  9. Music and Parkinson's Disease

    I'd also love to hear Scoop play (the piano, I think??).
  10. Music and Parkinson's Disease

    Ginger LAD, I've been wondering if you have any videos you can share of you and your DH at a dance? Would love to see that. We enjoyed the video of your dance lesson!
  11. Music and Parkinson's Disease

    You're right. I just found a video of them both singing it, though, back in 2010... Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. What two wonderful talents!

  13. Music and Parkinson's Disease

    J! How very nice to see you post again. I have thought of you often and hoped you hadn't left us. I so wish you would do as MM (Bob) has done so that we could hear you playing the piano. I know from the pieces you have mentioned over the past few years that you must has quite the talent, Won't you share it with us?
  14. Music and Parkinson's Disease

    Bob, as always you've done an awesome job, capturing all of the neat chords and the feel of the song in your voice. Just wonderful to listen to. Did Carol King or James Taylor make this popular? I've heard them both sing it. I think she wrote it, and maybe it was for him to sing?
  15. Good morning!!

    Hi, jb. I know so well the feeling of having carried Parkinson's over your shoulder every step of the day. I don't know how you do all you do. My morning ritual when I get up completely wears me out, and all I do is feed the cat, scoop his box, make some coffee (which doesn't give any stimulating effect any more, really), sometimes put a load of laundry in the washer, and fix a very simple breakfast of some kind. And then I have to rest... A Sunday afternoon classical music presentation sounds just delightful. Enjoy your day! Violet Linda
  16. Good morning!!

    Absolutely, and well said, Dianne. Violet Linda

  18. Good morning!!

    Couldn't agree more, LAD (a.k.a., Ginger, Muffet). jb, my mom and dad lived much like you describe above. It was idyllic--not perfect, but a totally different, much more friendly, caring, not-as-pressed-for-time era in which family and friends enjoyed peaceful meals and conversation and good down-home cooking like fried chicken, with each cook preparing it in her own special way and known for it. I can well imagine the loss was hard on your mom. That was a long friendship. What a blessing.
  19. You can sign up to receive this newsletter that comes out a few times a year. It is packed full of information! http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/neurology_neurosurgery/centers_clinics/movement_disorders/parkinsons_digest/index.html
  20. Good morning!!

    Please add me to those others who have also expressed their condolences, dear Em. We know the rich blessing that a precious friend can bring to our lives and the inevitable grief that the loss can bring. We are thinking of you and will pray for the comfort like none other that the Lord can bring to carry you through this time.
  21. Hi, Em.  Just wanted to give you a heads up that Dr. Binder just posted a great write-up about using niacin in Parkinson's.  I thought of you since you also recently posted that it can help in Parkinson.  His post gives a very interesting background of the history of its use.


  22. Of Possible Interest

    Wow. Excellent write-up and information. Em recently mentioned using niacin flush. She may be interested in reading this. I'll let her know about it.
