    Default delay the start of dementia by learning a new language and taking up an instrument

    remember that unused Rosetta stone subscription? or that dusty (or rusty) trombone in the corner LOL

    pick them up again and delay the onset of mental decline by up to 9 years according to new research

    this morning as I was driving to the airport I heard a commercial for Rosetta Stone where I could learn Spanish quickly and so be able to attend barbecues with my Hispanic neighbour*. I wonder if the Hispanic stations have commercials for Rosetta Stone where they could learn, I don't know, English perhaps, and thus not require me to have to learn a foreign language to be able to speak to my neighbours in my American neighbourhood.

    * my actual neighbours are northerners on one side (New Jersey, I think) and a nice young Asian couple on the other.

    I wish I could learn an instrument, but I just don't think I possess the coordination.

    I'm going to buy a lap steel guitar soon. That should help me ward off all that crap (I hope).

    As they say, use it or lose it....

    My mom has dementia, and so did my grandma. I have early signs already, but hopefully my recently discovered B12 deficiency is the cause and not the genetics...

    Done both in the last few years, so I think I am off to a good start hopefully!
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
