I Know About Memory Strategies,
But Which Ones Do I Need?
First you need to answer the question:
Is my memory normal?
Use ‘Memory Check’ to find out.
Remember: you can do this on-line, or print it off and complete it by hand.
How to use the Check-list:
- Place the number of your choice into the correct column (e.g. if you think 3 describes your memory performance, place a 3 in the third column across).
- On-line, your scores add downwards automatically. On paper you will have to add them up yourself.
- You then manually add the scores across the bottom of the page to get your grand total.
- To find out what your score means, go to: Memory Check Results

Here’s the best news for Baby Boomers this year!
Latest US Study Finds Brain Training Linked to Decreased Risk of Alzheimer’s.
Have you ever worried, like me, that someday you might suffer from Alzheimer’s? Recently, my sister Allison and I nursed our lovely mother, Jeanie, through the final stages of of this form of dementia. Sadly it’s an experience that more and more of our age group are going through. You probably know of someone yourself who has Alzheimer’s.It’s scary to watch because the person you knew so well gradually drifts away from you as memory loss takes over. No-one really knows what causes it. No-one has yet discovered a cure for it. And thousands more are being diagnosed with it every day.
That’s why this new research is such good news for healthy over-50′s. Read more…
Who hasn’t been trapped in a cab and forced to listen to the unfiltered opinions of a taxi driver as you simply try to make your way home from the airport? I’m sure you weren’t pondering the size of the cabbie’s brain as he “entertained” you with his opinions on the politics of the day.

Hilarity prevailed as one after the other of us imagined what might become of the odd couple. Let’s face it, Ben wasn’t exactly slim! Then, because actually nor were most of us, a quotation from the Scottish poet, Robert Burns, started tugging at my brain. Something to do with being able to see ourselves as others see us. I knew it real well … how did it begin?
It was on the tip of my tongue. Do you know, try as I might, I couldn’t remember how that quotation began.
In 2009, the oldest of the baby boomers, the generation born between 1946 and 1964, turned 63 years old. So what’s ahead for boomers?
Confident and independent lifestyles.
It seems a long time since I was in grade school but I can remember having a science class where the teacher handed round a model of a human brain. It looked kind of creepy and I wasn’t keen to touch it. But I can still hear him talking about how we, at about eleven, had all the brain cells we’d ever have in our lives. Not only that but we’d lose about 10,000 of them every day. I had visions of me losing cells all over the classroom and my house! Read more…
