THERE has been a lot of negative press about care homes in the media recently however, I would like to highlight the wonderful care and attention given to my late mum (Jeanie) during her stay at Seaton House, Darnley Court Care Home in Glasgow.
Mum was resident there for just over three years after she was no longer able to live indep- endently in her own home.
The nurses, carers and staff treated her as they would their own grandmother and she was happy, content and well cared for until she passed away recently.
Our family is thankful for the care given to mum and the support we received from the staff.
I FOUND the article interesting with the table on the impact of minimum pricing (Tuesday).
My arguments against the policy are as follows.
Alcohol abuse is not restricted to those who purchase value lines at supermarkets.
I reckon the people who will be most affected by this will not be the devil incarnate types but those who enjoy a drink but are on a tight budget such as pensioners and the unemployed who will stay in the house and not go out adding to the binge drinking culture.
When a commodity is made more expensive then people start to look for alternatives such as methylated spirits, contraband and fake products all of which will be harmful to society as a whole.
MANCHESTER City win the league and rightly parade the trophy through Manchester to celebrate with their supporters.
If either Hibs or Hearts win the Scottish Cup this week they will parade the trophy through the streets of Edinburgh.
The same principle would apply to all the other football teams in our towns and cities.
So we should surely hang our heads in shame in cosmopolitan Glasgow that neither of the Old Firm sides can parade their success in case it causes offence and trouble to the other half.
What a legacy for 'Scotland with Style'!
