Speaking of getting older, here is an article on keep the old brain more agile as we age. I'm banking on learning a language. :-)

I'm with ya James - I'm going to focus on English. After my game of golf today - I have that language down... I had no idea how many F's were involved, but I worked through it quite well :D

Les...

PS. Great article - gives one hope

I'd heard those reports before that learning a new language was one of the best brain exercises out there. It certainly doesn't come easy. Foul language I have down pat (like Les apparently. Golf does that to you!) Pig latin is next, then on to....hmmmmm

I'm keeping my brain active by planing a POMPEI OVEN.






That should get this thread back on the right track :D

baby boomers who are encountering the signs, by turns amusing and disconcerting, that accompany the decline of the brain’s acuity: a good friend’s name suddenly vanishing from memory; a frantic search for eyeglasses only to find them atop the head; milk taken from the refrigerator then put away in a cupboard.

I do all that already.....eek! Yesterday I walked to town and then wondered where I parked the car....it was nice knowing you guys!

...back to the Shanghai and Sodoku games....

Now that was funny SJ. I hope that logic works for my Pompeii. As long as the first brick and the last brick are in the right place, the rest can be a total mess and it will still cook a pizza without a problem.
