“Night, night sleep tight”

The image of an older person going to bed with a cup of cocoa leaves the impression of someone who is slowing down and quietly popping off to bed after the nine o’clock news – except the news is now 10 o’clock.

No more late night clubbing, no more drinking in the pub till closing time – there don’t seem to be closing times anymore.

The cocoa may be more significant that it first appears.  Research by Professor Passinetti of Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, suggests that Lavado Cocoa stops clumps of proteins building up in the brain and damaging nerve cells.

Therefore, the scientists claim it could stave off Alzheimer’s disease.

So after your glass of red wine in front of the tele, don’t forget before bed:-

    The problem with all these pleasant drinks in life and suffering alhzimeirs, do not forget where the toilet is in the middle of the night? A bottle too many maybe a bottle too far?

    God Bless Old age, do you not enjoy It?????

  3. Another problem with these drinks is dreaming? The other day I dreamt i was in cuckooland: There I was with Molly enjoying a summer/autumn antiques show, somewhere in Northamptonshire, and blow me down with a feather, an apperition appeared with a friendly face, a hugh smile (This time no demand for money), and just general bohamie: Did I know this striking persons and their friends and family, with a very colourful upper sweat shirt, done out in some ruby club colours? Well I did and enjoyed the fair even more, and felt like I was ‘walking on air’.
    It is the problem like the drinks and dreaming, it all had to end, not in tears but in very happy memories, so now after my cocoa or other fortified drinks, pills and potions, i now put my hand out for ‘EMFV’ and my 5 or is it 7 a day and chomp my way through the vitamins, and while I am chewing the cud my ‘Emty Mind Flits vacantly’ (EMFV) to the next occassion when dreams become a reality, and old age becomes a fact!!!!.

      Sometimes dreams can become reality. Just like living in a retirement village everyday.

      Antique shows are always reason for a smile, when you can pick things up that remind you of happy times past.
      A stamp album full of British Commowealth stamps that enable me to answer all the geography questions in TV quizzes.
      A table top of carpenters tools which I played with in my grandfathers building yard and later tried to use in woodwork lessons at school.
      Books you read as a child and had long since forgotten — The water babies, Call of the wild, Ivanhoe, Masterman Ready, King Soloman’s mines, Moby Dick.
