I Bloody Forgot

IMG_0527</a

Today I recieved the most beautiful bunch of flowers from my husband who I love a lot
It is our wedding anniversary, how good am I, I bloody forgot

With all that has been happening it slipped my mind
A wonderful person, sure i’ll be forgiven, a better man I would not find

In Canada’s winters cold, well actually the summer is the same way
We married 12 years ago this very day

Those years have been fun and lots of laughs have passed
Travelled thousands of miles on our Harleys, sometimes slow often fast

Please forgive me Dave for not remembering this day
I think it is time I slowed down and got back to just play

Thats what I am good at and you are good at that too
Just to hug and to hold because I love you

I do love you at lot
I am sorry I bloody forgot

How To Remember Someones Name

 

I-Forgot-to-Remember

Now this is good to know because I am so bad at this. I so like to remember peoples names that I have met and embarrassed when I don’t.

Here is a few handy hints.

When you meet someone new at a party mostly their name just slips from your mind.

There is usually no harm in asking them to repeat it and these tips will ensure you won’t need to.

 

1. When you first hear their name, repeat it. Use it in a question or check you’ve got it right. saying it out loud early on will help you commit it to memory.

 

2. Experts say a good trick is to make a verbal or visual association. Picture the persons name written on their forehead, or use a rhyme (Big-shot Scott) or alliteration (slurring Scott) to make it memorable.

 

3. The key factor is your attitude. The main reason we forget a name is because we’re distracted, or not actually very interested in learning it. So if you make a conscious decision to try and remember someone’s name, chances are you will.

4. Another way of finding out someones name,(Use this method many times)  that you have forgotten  is always say to your friends  that if you don’t introduce them to someone  its because you cannot remember their name. 

I tell my friends to say ” My name is ……….. you need to excuse my friends manners and yours is?”

Thats a win win as you get to find out their name without having to embarrassingly ask them.  You should know and your friend will not get annoyed with you thinking they are not important enough to be introduced to that person.

Did You Know – 12/08/2014

soda-bubbles
1. A new study looked at whether America’s thirst for soda speeds up how the body’s cells age.
Researchers at the University of California, San Francisco used a sample of 5300 healthy adults. Dr. Elissa Epel worked on the study for 5 years.
“We think we can get away with drinking lots of soda as long as we are not gaining weight, but this suggests that there is an invisible pathway that leads to accelerated aging, regardless of weight,” said Dr. Epel.

Epel’s team discovered that in people who drank more sugar-sweetened beverages, the ends of their chromosomes, known as telomeres, were shorter.
The shorter the telomere, the less a cell can regenerate thus aging the body, and raising the risk of disease and early death.
“This finding is alarming because it suggest that soda may be aging us, in ways we are not even aware of,” said Dr. Epel.
Researchers found no link in cell aging, however, when drinking diet sodas and fruit juices.

5. Did you know there is an old wives tale that says if you put a cork in the bed it will help you reduce leg cramps. Apparently it works. Maybe its the bottle of wine you drink first.

I Know You Know I Care

picture-1

Please forgive me Cindy for not being with you for not being there
I do miss you, our chats, your presence, our friendship, your talented flair

Not being there for your memorial and not your birthday
I feel disturbed I kinda let you down in a way

Your spirit will be with me and all that paths you have crossed
Your bravery, your strength, a great person we have lost

People come into your life for good reasons I declare
I was not there but ‘I Know You Know I Care’
