You guys are all awesome. But that's why I posted here after hearing about it this morning.

Whether an intervention works or not, it'll hurt their feelings pretty bad. I'll need to think carefully about what I'm going to say to them, and how I'll say it. And I only think a full-blown intervention will work if enough extended family participate.

Right now my sister is hosting them in Switzerland, and is horrified that they can barely get around. They're in as poor health as my grandparents were in their late 70's.

Anyway, if anyone can offer any insights or experiences I'd be grateful. I'll be out of Foo contact till Sunday, I'm setting up for the 'Bug-Bash' day at the Science and Industry Museum in Chicago (if anyone nearby is interested).
