At last an explanation:

Friday, October 26, 2012

Ever walk into a room with some purpose in mind, only to completely forget what that purpose was? Turns out, doors themselves are to blame for these strange memory lapses.

Psychologists at the University of Notre Dame have discovered that passing through a doorway triggers what's known as an event boundary in the mind, separating one set of thoughts and memories from the next.
Your brain files away the thoughts you had in the previous room and prepares a blank slate for the new locale.

It's not aging, it's the door! Whew! Thank goodness for studies like these!

COMPLETE - Finally

Monday, October 22, 2012

After almost 2 years, I have finally completed a personal goal of reading every entry in the Health A-Z.

In case you're wondering... there are 622 different topices and you can only get points for 1 each day. That is a total of 1,866 Sparkpoints.

  Funny!

Last night I was watching a Roy Rogers movie "Bells of San Angelo" (1947). In one scene Roy leaps onto Trigger and prepares to ride off. Andy Devine is his sidekick. Andy mounts his horse just as quickly as Roy, but its done off camera. Then I pay attention to Andy's girth. Yes, he is widespread.

Point to Ponder

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water, and is fat.

A rabbit runs and hops and only lives 15 years.

A tortoise doesn't run and does nothing, yet it lives for 450 years.

And you tell me to exercise? I don't think so. emoticon

Your present circumstances don't determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.
