A brief tidbit from NPR on memory.
Some keys to improving memory, according to a study of 33,000 people in Australia, are:
Do crossword puzzles (I don't)
Read fiction (I do, I do, I do!)
Avoid heavy drinking (Check)
Eat fish at least once a week (well, I used to)
Turn off the TV (I don't even turn it on)
The study says that those who watch TV less than one hour a day had the strongest memory.
Oops, just lost power here at the house. Yikes... better save this post. I may search online for the results of this study as soon as the power comes back.
