  • I was emailing with a friend this morning about smoothies and mentioned that my tastes had changed. During the holidays I have especially challenged with "treats" being around me.

    My smoothies have changed my outlook on food and I would say for the better. Instead of eating several home baked cookies, I eat half of one and feel like I have satisfied my naughty craving.

    Maybe that is why I am hovering again. My solution is probably 3 feet in front of me every day as I work at my desk, but I have not yet partaken. Who said getting BACK on a bike is easy?

  • My friend Jere sent this to me, just in time. I was starting to wonder.

    "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!"
