Kids’ Games For Aging Brains. She mentioned thatome time ago, Ronni at Time Goes By published a post called
Ryuta Kawashima, a professor of neuroscience at Tohoku University, who helped develop Brain Age, says he has proof that a few minutes every day spent exercising a particular part of the brain brings improvements.
Well, if games are good for the brain, this brain should be expanding all the time (although I have to tell you it forgets so many things that I sometimes wonder). I have always been a game player. Not a gambler, mind you, I hate losing! But I have always liked mental games like crossword puzzles or problem solving oriented games. That is quite reasonable for an elder, isn’t it? But wait and I will confess to more.
Ever since the first gameboys appeared on the market, the ones with a black and white screen, with the original Super Mario Land, I have been a fan. I am still a Tetris fan and now enjoy World Tetris on a Gameboy Advance SP
When I started, everyone including my husband made fun of me.
And now that I am a respectable sixty (one) year-old, people just think I am weird. On the train on my way to London a couple of months ago, I saw several kids pointing at me, probably asking their parents what sort of crazy old lady would be playing with a gameboy?
ou’re wondering what’s this got to do with blogging? Well, to me blogging also represents problem solving in many cases. I like the writing part, although sometimes, I just have nothing to say, but I like finding ways of making my posts good-looking or at least different-looking.
And I find great help with Meg at MandarinDesign. Meg’s blog has almost anything you can dream of ready. But she is also a generous soul and enjoys solving problems for other people.
Yesterday, I had this long list and wanted to add a star in front of them. I knew it was possible to add a bullet in front of each item of a list, but didn’t know how. I asked Meg who posted the answer in no time. At first, the solution was Hebrew to me, but after some trial and error AND with Meg’s help, the problem was solved.
Notice how two good fairies are leaning over my blog?
I started this post with Ronni at Time Goes By and am closing it with Meg at MandarinDesign
I’m away for a few days and as I’ll be travelling by train, guess what I just put in my bag? 😉
