  1. Kate, your always personal blogs are a wonderful voice for Veda and I to read, listen to and watch. Please keep it going but only when you feel like it. BTW your own video moved Veda out of depression and past anger (for now). She played it to her in-home care worker last week.
    Love to you…and no, I didn’t know about the recipe book either. Hope the rhubarb pie is in it!!! (@YODsupporter)

  2. HI Kate!
    I am amazed its “only” three years! I could have sworn that you started your blog before I started my own blog, but apparently not. “Memory is an act of imagination” (Edmund Blair Bolles,1988) and my imagination had you blogging for at least four years. lol.
    Congratulations and keep it up! cheers, Sally.

    • Hi Sally… you sent me a link to your blog, and that was the second “sign” I should start blogging, so it is partly your fault I started!! It has been one hell of a ride, and I thank you for being one of the people leading me to it. Forget Memory, as Anne someone wrote… and I say, enjoy life! X

      • Wow is that right? I had no idea I had anything to do with it. !!
        As for memory – I think Bolles’ writing is apposite – everyone’s memory is imperfect, modulated by past and future events and fluid with every “retrieval” – as often illustrated in court and political reports! Would that we all appreciated that fact. Perhaps we’d all be more tolerant of each other and even more light hearted about life in general – it’s ephemeral after all. Xx Sally 🙂

      • Yes, so you see, I have you to partly THANK for blogging… ps what does apposite mean? or was it a typo? and being more tolerant of each other is such a wonderful goal. X

      • 😉 it means “appropriate and/or pertinent” – I thought you’d have a dictionary at your elbow 24/7 being a writer? Or maybe I’m the only weirdo that has a dictionary fetish.

      • I also have a love,fondness, tenderness, warmth, attachment, endearment; devotion and adoration, for dictionaries so much so that I was able to dump (verb [ with obj. ] dispose of (rubbish, waste, or unwanted material), the dictionary Apple have on their mac and installed Mr Websters 1913 dictionary It is much more fluent ( ORIGIN late 16th cent.: from Latin fluent- ‘flowing’, from the verb fluere ) and picturesque (of language unusual and vivid: the salad has no regional or picturesque name.) and I have never looked back.

      • Oh WOW, another freak with”a love,fondness, tenderness, warmth, attachment, endearment; devotion and adoration, for dictionaries”, how wonderful!!!!! I hope Sally tunes into your comment, as if she hasn’t installed it, I’m sure she’ll want to. I will get my BUB to do it for me over the weekend. And now I know I have two additional supports online! Thanks.

  3. Congratulations on Three years!!!! very powerful, moving, and inspiring blog may you celebrate many more.
    I am very proud to be an advocate for the awareness of Alzheimers and other Dementias and its a pleasure to share the Social Media waves with you Happy Blogging. ~Sheryl Simmons…..Author of, ‘A Message From Mama, for the Caregivers of Alzheimers Dementia’!

  4. And thank you for having a safe place onlline for us to read about your thoughts and feel connected with another who truly understands what we’re going through (big hug!)

  5. Congrats my friend! I didn’t know your recipe blog was still going 😦 I just signed up to see what you are up to. I thought because I was signed up for your writing blog that the recipe blog was part of it and you just weren’t doing it anymore. Oh well…I hit the sign up there as well so now I’ll know 🙂 Thanks. Love to you. VK

    • Great news to have you looking at the recipe blog, perhaps I forgot to announce I had set it up?! Anyway, it gives me something to do that is my passion in my down time, and also keeps the young men off my back!!! xox

  6. Hi Kate, you inspired me to take the Bachelor of DC( which I started ! ) and I hope to make some difference in having the knowledge for better quality care in aged care, especially dementia care.
    I admire your continuous advocacy for positive embrace towards dementia care. Thank you.

    • Wow, thanks Rosy, and I am glad you are doing the BDC… I hope you are enjoying it. Thank you for wanting to improve the lives of people with dementia and their family carers.

The only thing missing in this global conversation is YOUR voice... Thank you.
