My husband and I hosted the Family Thanksgiving event this last Thursday at our place. I took great care to shop early, clear the "to do" list, and made plans on serving the meal promptly at noon (for those traveling from out of town, so we could eat early and then enjoy visiting before all had to be back on the road). I am usually right on target with the committed time...but not so this day.

Dreams are sometimes scary, crazy, bizarre and have images and sounds that are perplexing, but do we actually "smell" in our dreams?

Freud eluded to people experiencing a strong correlation related to effects on dreams based on smells while awake. He indicated that smelling something fragrant and positive, usually resulted in a commensurate dream, and the opposite rang true...a negative smell resulted in rather tormenting dream.

So, do we smell the coffee, then wake up, or wake up and smell the coffee? Hehe.

Many of you are familiar with the "CRMC Green Team" that has been doing some awesome things with an all volunteer league of staff who are passionate about being responsible with the environment. They formed the group about 4 years ago and have accomplished much.

...well, almost.

I read a fascinating article about a procedure that was done recently at Wexner Medical Center; Ohio Sate University. Physicians implanted a microchip into the brain of a paralyzed patient and connected the chip by way of a port to a computer. The software program was developed to "decode" messages from the brain and then send the messages to strips of electrodes attached to areas on the patient in hopes of stimulating muscle fibers to cause movement...whoa!

I read an article recently about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and how six million children have been diagnosed with this condition and one million of those six million have also been classified as having Sluggish Cognitive Tempo or SCT (two million children).They report lethargy, day dreaming, and slow mental processing.

Well, if "Little E" can do it (yesterday, March 9th) and not get too upset about it, then I shouldn't either!

It's my own darn fault for pushing the limits and trying to calculate the risk. Oh, and I passed a couple of gas stations along the way but was too much in a hurry to stop for maybe 5 minutes and at least put a few bucks in. I'm sure many can relate to the story...why do I do this? Why do I put myself in that situation? Adventurous, daring, thrill-seeking, audacious, carefree, and venturesome? Not really; just a little unwise perhaps.
