                                     End of Days...

At the weekend I was at the Hay Festival, and attended the "Letters of Note" event on Saturday, where some of our finest actors and actresses read letters pulled from history, old and contemporary, often very funny or incredibly poignant. One of the stand-outs was Benedict Cumberbatch reading the letter that the palliative care doctor, Dr Mark Taubert, wrote on learning of the death of David Bowie. It is both a private discourse, but also one with a wider wiser insight into how we can, if possible, approach death.

                                           Eat Well!

The BBC has just published this from The Eatwell Guide.
It's caused lots of brouhaha, especially over the "low fat" debate. On the radio last night, there was also discussion that the most important thing of all is to avoid all processed food. Amid all the noise and clamour from the calorie counters and the big marketeers, I think the seven wise words from food writer Michael Pollan should always be our touchstone: "Eat food, not too much, mostly plants".

                                  Underfall Yard

I learn so many lovely things, chatting to patients from my receptionists chair. This is what I've just discovered, that there's a new tiny little local eatery, set withing the new Underfall Yard Visitors Centre. Underfall Yard is a true treasure of Bristol, a traditional working boat builders in Hotwells, and with even more of a reason to visit it now that there's good quality food to be had. Enjoy!


Dementia Awareness Week  Sun 15th May - Sat 21st May 2016

Dementia Awareness Week encourages anyone who is worried about dementia to confront their concerns and get in touch with Alzheimer's Society. Hundreds of thousands of families are touched by dementia every year and many people don't know where to turn. Dementia can be scary but you don’t have to face it alone.
