Remember, remember

You always have to take pop science reporting with a grain of salt, but supposedly knitting can help keep one from suffering memory loss in old age. Granted, the study's results may not be terribly reliable, especially when its author says, "Of course, the challenge with this type of research is that we are relying on past memories of the participants, therefore we need to confirm these findings with additional research." I'm just hoping the knitting counteracts the memory loss supposedly brought on by watching a lot of television.

Ha!

I actually read a study about a gentleman who is following a number of women from a convent and studying their brains after death to see how and why Alzheimer's affects people. They found that when the nuns participated in various crafting things or other activities which engaged their minds that Alzheimer's seemed to set in later and that even when it had already begun could slow some.

Since this ailment runs pretty heavily in both mine and the boy's family I like to keep tabs on what's going on so that we can prepare ourselves for our 80s and the nonsensical conversations we will have. Woah! No way Jose. Who's Jose? Salta!
