Subject: Singing show tunes helps fight off dementia: study
A study by U.S. scientists has shown that the brain function of those suffering from dementia can be improved if they belt out their favorite show tunes. 
OH... I AM ALL FOR IT.. !!!!  
AND I THINK I KNEW THAT !!

I HAVE  ALREADY SUGGESTED TO MY CHILDREN THAT IF THE SITUATION  ARRISES THEY ARE TO PLAY SHOW MUSIC...
NOW IF I COULD JUST GET MY CAR TO PLAY THEM  YOU WOULD ALL REMAIN SAFE.
**********
THIS WILL BE A WIERD DD..

SOMEWHERE I HAVE READ  THAT ONLY A VERY FEW PEOIPLE DREAM IN COLOR-
AND LAST NIGHT WAS ONE OF THOSE TIME... SO I WROTE IT DOWN INTHE BACK OF MY SUDOKO BOOK BEFORE I FORGOT ... THE DETAILS MAKE IT CURIOUS.. 

 CAST OF CHARACTERS:  #1 STEVE- A HIGHSCHOOL FRIEND--- AND HIS WIFE BARBARA--- 
BARBARA AND I WERE WANDERING AROUND A SUBURB- SHE CARRYING A WHITE CLOTH BAG
SHE WAS COLLECTING MONEY FOR SOME CHARITY- AND THE CLOTH BAG ALSO HAD MY SMALL CLIPBOARD IN IT.
A TEENAGE KID SAID HIS FATHER HAD A BUNCH OF MONEY AND RAN IN THE HOUSE-THE MAN  RETURNING
WITH A 50 CENT ROLL OF PENNIES WHICH HE DROPPED IN THE BAG.  WE STOPPED TO TALK TO A 
COUPLE WHO LIVED IN A  VERY SMALL HOUSE  ABOUT 10 X 10 - VERY CLEAN AND TIDY AND THEY RAN
EVERYTHING  FROM EXTENSION CORDS OUTSIDE IN THE YARD.--   WALKED  PAST ONE WOMAN SITTING ALONE  IN A CHAIR ON A WHITE BEACH.    TO A PIZZA PLACE WITH A COUNTER AND 6 STOOLS--
 AND VERY GREASY BACON AND LETTIUCE PIZZAS ABOUT  18" X 8" --- I MEASURED IT...- BARBARA GAVE ME MY CLIPBOARD AND LEFT. STEVE CAME IN WEARING A YELLOW TUXEDO-, REMOVED HIS TIE AND JACKET AND HAD A DARK GREY SWEATER UNDERNEATH.  ......AND THAT IS WHEN I WOKE UP.

THAT GREEN LETTUCE , BROWN BACON WITH  RED TOMATOE SAUCE PLUS
 STEVE'S YELLOW TUX  WERE DEFINITELY IN COLOR. 
THERE ARE PIECES I DEFINITELY RECOGNIZE-  MOST NOTABLY  THE EXTENSION GORDS AND THE POWER OUTAGE THE OTHER DAY.  IT WAS DEFINITELY FLORIDA....?WOMAN IN CHAIR--? MAN WITH THE PENNIES?--? TD BANK IS  COUNTING COINS FOR CHARITY---- TINY HOUSES???
I WAS VERY BUSY  DREAMING.... IN COLOR.
*******
TWAN SENT THE VIDEO OF CHAOS WHIPPING THE KIDS IN ORDER... SHE ASSESSES THE SITUATION FOR 12.5 MINUTES ON THE TIMER- THE DECIDES TO TAKE COMMAND AND 13.11 SHE SNAPS AND THEY QUIT.

WELL DONE !
*******
another well done...  staci got 120  pokerchip key chains put together-- the chips had teh hole already drilled-- but still those chains had the overlapping loop bit that is   1/4 inch--how they spread that to accept the pokerchip is beyond me...  and they( her son??) did the first bunch bouncing along in a car on the way back to conn.  i need to know how they did that...  i could maybe do  1 an  hour.. if i was lucky...  i am missing something.
*************
the book  i got at mailcall yesterday   "garbage land" is teh one i remember--- and am enjoying reading it again.
she is a good writer..and has done her homework.... i can relate to every piece of trash she traces down to floor sweepings .. it certainy affects what i buy--but not yet how i get rid of it.-- numbers like- the avg american throws out 4.7 pounds of trash per day-- that is 1.8 pounds more than 45 years ago-- and there are more of us.--
there are certain things fo r which  i do not mind paying  taxes--- trash collection is one of them..
drinking water is another.
*****
which brings up another topic-  ipswich has wonderful town water... from many deep wells --i think we should experinent with refilling our poland springs bottles with ipswich town water... it is good-
we need a sign on the cases of bottles---" take one and refill it for a week"  i bet we'd save $50 a month--- i know we would !
******
the clock on the wall says sunday- ( wonderful clock--- i have 2 -- takes away all that uncertinty about  who's coming   or which pill in the weekly pill box to swallow..)
*****
bailey meandered to the teepee yesterday and trotted some back to the house...  she is still covered by the 2 week antibiotic-- and is ( being forced to take) 75mg of duramax-- which is aparently not only a pain killer but a slight  anti inflamitory.  she looks great--- lesson ---heavy drugs are a bad thing-- i could have sworn she was not going to live a week from that one shot i gave her to try and get around her not liking to have the duramax shoved down her throat..
please-- don't send me all the ways to get a pill down a dog..  we know all of them.. so does she. she is very talented at pill location.  and if i grind it up and put it in her food-- one slight sniff- even with vicks in her nose.... she won't eat the food... been there done that. pill pockets are a joke.  she can wolf down 1/2 a stick of butter and spit out the pill hidden in it.
**********
maybe i can get some kid to get the show tunes on my phone-- which talks to my car- so i can sing show tunes   in the car....... just in case.

  1. CARLENE, MY DOG HAS BEEN ON DERAMAXX FOR SEVERAL YEARS AND I'VE ALWAYS BEEN AMAZED THAT HE IS PERFECTLY HAPPY TO TAKE HIS 25mg QUARTER-TABLET STRAIGHT. (HE IS NOT SO FOND OF HIS PROIN; THAT REQUIRES A DOLLOP OF PEANUT BUTTER.) DOES BAILEY REFUSE THE (PURPORTEDLY) BEEF-FLAVORED CHEWABLE OR IS THE LARGER DOSE SIMPLY INTENDED TO BE "SHOVE-ONLY"?
