My Memory

with 2 comments

Just a thought or two about the ways I’m observing my memory changing as I get older. Some of it encouraging, some ot if not.

I’ve given it some thought, although I’ve not really seen anything written about it, so I don’t know if I’m scientifically on target with this. What I’ve observed about my own memory recall is that it falls into one of two categories: retrieval or recognition. Read the rest of this entry »

Sherrie won two tickets to the Braves game last night…box seats in the Lexus Pavilion, no less. The game started at 7:35, and it would have taken us about 30-40 minutes to get there, parked, and into the stadium.

This article does not offer any solutions, but it certainly makes the war seem a lot more real. (And just a disclaimer that will only make sense at the end of this: I am sorry when almost any human being dies, but I cared not one whit for the media obsession with Anna Nicole Smith.)

Again, I’ve not blogged for quite some time, for many reasons, the biggest of which is that for a couple of weeks there, I was working almost non-stop. Now that I’m finally seeing some light at the end of the tunnel in that regard, I thought I’d take a few moments on a Saturday evening and try to catch up on the “big” events.
