We are still dancing Edna after 58 years. We met at Tommy Mosses in 1962 and now dance regularly at the tower ballroom. We retired to Blackpool for the dancing.

You're right Edna, once whilst in a waiting room at the Thomas Linacre Centre I got talking to a man who turned out to be Tom Moss, he said that dancing was the best exercise for staying fit and to keep the weight off, and both he and his wife looked a lot younger than they was.

Of course Cyril, music dancing, and singing all lift your mood.I would rather put an Andre Rue concert on TV anytime rather than watch some of the rubbish that's on.He even gets the audience up dancing.Have a look at Andre Rue and his Johann Strauss Orchestra.You can get it on YouTube.If your feeling down, that will lift you up!!
