I've never heard of an adult foster home. That is such a brilliant idea. Wonderful for both those that want to help and those that need it.

That sounds like a great option. I hope it works out for the best for all of you. I've never heard of an adult foster home. I shall have to find out more about it.

I was in England in September and one of the things that struck me is how many elderly people you see out and about - walking into town, catching the bus, walking around the town, in Sainsbury's, etc. I just don't see elderly people here. There are several retirement homes, nursing homes, etc so they must be about. I know I live in a community predominantly inhabited by health nuts but there must surely still be old people!

Saw Dylan back in 2007, and wasn't particularly impressed. Luckily Elvis Costello was the support act, and he was awesome.

Dylan has off nights and on nights but usually his band is consistently good. Granted, the last time I saw him was 2004 so it could be completely different now. Mainly, I'm going for Mark Knopfler, though it will be nice to see Bob again.

I can't say that I particularly care for Bob Dylan, at all. I really don't like his voice.

Of course you don't... they all live in Florida.

A voice like sand and glue - some of his stuff is fantastic.

They don't all live in Florida but I know what you mean. There are at least 10 assisted living facilities in Boulder so how come there are no elderly people out and about? I find it quite worrying.

They dont go outside. They hang out at the Staring Window.

Believe me, if you lived in Florida, you'd think that they all lived here.
