It's a service you should be offering!

You could grade the contents of the meat box according to the age of the customer on your standing order plan thingy...
In your twenties and thirties your box will mostly consist of chops and steaks, as you move into middle age we will increase the proportions of shin and the like for long slow cooked tender stews. Finally, as you move into your seventies we will send you a Big Bag 'o' Mince (TM) so that you no longer have to waste energy chewing.

Feh, you know that's not the same as you offering it.

You'll be pleased to know that we're now printing a paper order form for those non-internet types, and to hell with the trees. Wink Nick

I guess they deserve to eat meat, too. Rob R

The main problem was them ringing up & wanting to pay over the phone, but I'm getting that sorted soon, too. Jamanda

There used to be a thing called a cheque. Could be cashed before despatching.

...and another one....so three a month til Dec 2013..better than a kick up the kyber!! Lorrainelovesplants

I wish you well with this.
Having been visiting mum at a Nursing home for nearly a year now, I can see that the residents have music workshops twice a week, and that these are well attended and do make a difference.
Perhaps mum dosnt get as much from them as they tend to be based on songs during the war period (and mum was living abroad and has no knowledge of this period in the UK).

But I think this, and art workshops are popular.

You could try music with gentle excercise - I'd like mum to do this, but she's a curmugeony old git and wont try - I think this would be a fun way for residents to excercise their hands/feet.
A bit of humour goes a long way....

Hi Lorraine...the workshops we do are based on frequencies that improve health and wellbeing,some upbeat, some gentle,plus we do actually include fun ways of getting gentle bilateral movement exercises...using instruments, plates (!), batons etc. The music is very varied too...some wartime stuff, but our founder is very aware that as time goes on the music moves on too...we play 50's and 60's stuff, we also have singalongs and quizzes...the whole programme is about balance.

We are part of a national company so if you pm me which area your mum is in, I could find out if there's a practitioner nearby?
