From Real Age Tips of the Week - 01/18/08 - "Today, Jan. 18: The anti-Alzheimer's diet . . .":
The Dinner Choice That Thwarts Alzheimer's
Recipe for a sharp mind: chop some mango,
jalapeno, and cilantro; toss together with lime juice, salt, and pepper; then
spoon generously over grilled fish.
The combo of fatty acids from the fish and antioxidants from the fresh fruit helps protect the brain from dementia. Here’s how these -- and other -- nutrients boost your brain.
Oh, Those Omega-3s
Eating lots of omega-3-rich fish is a good start on your trip toward a perpetually sharp mind. (Read this article for five other brain foods.) Omega-3 fatty acids are anti-inflammatory, which may be the reason for their mind-preserving powers. In fact, getting enough omega-3s in your diet may offset the increased dementia risk that comes from loading up on too many inflammation-linked fats like omega-6s from corn oil and soybean oil.

Carol, do not know if you would like to show these or not. Just brings back a lot memories from yesteryear. Hope you like them.
Jerry Blanchard (62) of Va.
Gas Stations Of Yesteryear
Back when life was much simpler and gas was 18-25 cents a gallon!!
(or there about) and as low as 17 cents during gas wars.
Yeah . . . I remember!
And with a fill-up you got the gas pumped for you,
your windshield cleaned, oil and fluids checked, tires checked,
a free map, if you wanted it, and greeted in ENGLISH !!!
Yeah! I remember!!!
Enjoy Your Days & Love Your Life.... Because...."Life is a journey to be savored."
Thanks, Jerry, I remember them quite fondly, too!
Y'all take care of each other! TYPHOONS FOREVER! We'll Always Have Buckroe!
Love to all, Carol

Music by Jay Ungar, 1982
The sun is sinking low in the sky above Ashokan.
The pines and the willows know soon we will part.
There's a whisper in the wind of promises unspoken,
And a love that will always remain in my heart.
My thoughts will return to the sound of your laughter,
The magic of moving as one,
And a time we'll remember long ever after
The moonlight and music and dancing are done.
Will we climb the hills once more?
Will we walk the woods together?
Will I feel you holding me close once again?
Will every song we've sung stay with us forever?
Will you dance in my dreams or my arms until then?
Under the moon the mountains lie sleeping
Over the lake the stars shine.
They wonder if you and I will be keeping
The magic and music, or leave them behind.
