How to boost your Memory...FOOD FOR THOUGHT! - 08/24/12 02:54 PM
They say that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but when it comes to the brain, scientists have discovered that this old adage simply isn’t true. Old dogs can learn new tricks! 1.Don't skimp on exercise or sleep. (STICK TO A EASY TO FOLLOW SCHEDULE!) 2.Make time for friends and fun! (LAUGHTER IS GOOD FOR YOUR BRAIN!) (HAVE SOME FUNNY TIME)! 3.Keep stress in check. (STRESS IS ONE OF THE BRAIN'S WORST ENEMIES). MEDITATION IS HELPFUL. 4.Eat a brain-boosting diet. (EAT FRUITS AND VEGETABLES, AND GET YOUR OMEGA-3'S!) 5. Do something new, challenging & fun! (KEEP THE BRAIN EXCERSIZED)! (2 comments)

Monsoons and Rainbows. - 08/20/12 12:57 PM
We are now definitely in the middle of Monsoon Season in Payson, Arizona. It is fairly nice today at 84%, and partly cloudy. Tomorrow and Wednesday we will experience some Thunderstorms in the afternoon. It's nice because it does cool us down a little bit, and it's refreshing sometimes.

It gives a chance for everyone to have lunch together once in a while. Company break time! I made up my own recipe as I went, (1 comments)

Marinate your steak. Pour marinade of your choice in large plastic zip bag, add your steak and refrigerate. It's best to let it sit for 6 - 24 hours, but even a 1 hour marinade can make a difference in taste. You don't have to pay for an expensive marinade, it's simple to make your own. You can use beer, a bit of Worcestershire sauce, garlic and black pepper for an inexpensive alternative. Warm your steak up. After you marinate the ribeye, bring the steak to room temperature. This helps ensure it cooks evenly. Cook steak to your liking. After (2 comments)
The northeastern portion of the Sonora desert, the Arizona upland desert, is home to the giant saguaro (sometimes spelled sahuaro and pronounced sah-wah-roh). This cactus has become the symbol of Arizona, and it is the most massive cactus in the United States, though it may be exceeded in size by some of the giant cacti of Baja California, southern Mexico and Brazil.
Woodpeckers sometimes drill holes in saguaros for nests; these may later be used by owls and other birds as well. Birds that may live in saguaros include Gila woodpeckers, elf owls, cactus ferruginous pygmy owls, (1 comments)
The largest flower in the world, the rafflesia arnoldi, weighs 7 kg (15 pounds) and grows only on the Sumatra. Its petals grow to 1.6 ft long and 1 inch thick. However fascinating and beautiful the rafflesia arnoldi may be, it is also called “corpse flower” and really reeks, the latter to attract flies for pollination. There are over 200,000 species in the world, and the smallest is the duckweed, which can only be seen with a microscope.
