    The Guardian for this meeting was Riddle Sideways. The very late comments are by Riddle Sideways. The apoligies for that latness are always Riddle's.

    Riddle Sideways: Good Morning, PaB Listener
    It so nice that my Bell, fountain spray and 90 second notifacations are working again.
    Riddle Sideways: RL me needs to deal with getting daugther breakfast and out of house right now.
    Riddle Sideways: Not sure how to put an "away, back soon" sign on av.

    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Riddle :)

    SophiaSharon Larnia: smiles
    SophiaSharon Larnia: well, it is kind of fuzzy :))
    Riddle Sideways: hi Yaku
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Yakuzza
    Riddle Sideways: please to not stand on Sophia
    SophiaSharon Larnia: ooch
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey everyone

    Yakuzza Lethecus: but what else should i do when my feet are cold ?
    Riddle Sideways: wear uggs
    SophiaSharon Larnia: aww Yak your cold lol, maybe the pond is warm, stick your feet in there ;p
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, i have only one shoe :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i noticed Yak
    SophiaSharon Larnia: its endearing
    Riddle Sideways: how do you have only one shoe?
    SophiaSharon Larnia feel slike she goes through life with one shoe

    Yakuzza Lethecus: anyway, did i interupt any topic ?
    Riddle Sideways: none
    Riddle Sideways: maybe
    Riddle Sideways: was thinking back on going to high school
    Riddle Sideways: having to take an AP exit exam
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I wouldnt want to go back to high school, or be that young again
    SophiaSharon Larnia: ap exit?
    Riddle Sideways: (advanced Placement)
    Riddle Sideways: some kind of higher level course matterial
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes, i didnt get hte exit part
    Riddle Sideways: oh, end of year exam / final
    SophiaSharon Larnia: ah
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i would flunk
    Riddle Sideways: get good grade = college credit
    Riddle Sideways: bad grade = failure = go directly to garbage collector
    Not that any thing is wrong with being a garbage collector.  G-d knows we need more garbage picked up and put away.  And if you become the Bestest Garbage you can be.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i do like being in school though, taking classes
    Riddle Sideways: taking classes is good
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i would do it full time, if i could afford it
    Riddle Sideways: grades are bad
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Lucinda
    Riddle Sideways: hi lucinda
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hi luci
    Lucinda Lavender: HiAll,

     Finally, a topic

    SophiaSharon Larnia: if time is 'now' than why does our memory of it get fuzzy
    Riddle Sideways: good question
    Riddle Sideways: if all of those mental things are stored equally
    SophiaSharon Larnia: linearly feels far away
    Riddle Sideways: why can't we pull them perfectly for the test
    Riddle Sideways: like one is behind an other
    Lucinda Lavender: I read a book recently that looks at the topic.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: oh?
    Riddle Sideways asks for title
    Lucinda Lavender: Ironically I am having trouble remembering the name of the book!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :))
    Riddle Sideways: lol
    Riddle Sideways: it was on page one, which got covered by page two
    Lucinda Lavender: On rememberance for me is that people were given a list of things to remember and then sent down a hallway ...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: smiles
    SophiaSharon Larnia: how easy we forget
    Lucinda Lavender: in the middle of the hallway, there were two kinds of dessert on a table for their taking...
    Riddle Sideways: hope this is not an anti chocolate story
    Lucinda Lavender: the longer the list to remember, the more likely the people were to choose the sweetestest richest dessert.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: really?
    Lucinda Lavender: yes
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hmmm
    SophiaSharon Larnia: interesting
    SophiaSharon Larnia: the brain using up all its glucose in memory or what
    Riddle Sideways needs more then 90-sec to think on that
    Lucinda Lavender: The name of it was: How We Decide
    Riddle Sideways: TY
    SophiaSharon Larnia: sorry that was a facitious question, what was there interpretation of that??
    Lucinda Lavender: It is really closer to the truth I think!
    Lucinda Lavender: To get the brain in gear...we use the chocolate cake over the yogurt...
    Riddle Sideways: hmmmm, then it is a good thing that daughter took brownies for snack after/during test today
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia thinks she wants to go to Lucinda's class
    Lucinda Lavender: sure!
    Lucinda Lavender: sweet!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: haha
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ;-)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I really do have a terrible memory, and Ive pondored why
    SophiaSharon Larnia: but i dont remember the conclusion
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: this is why I do not remember jokes to tell...
    Lucinda Lavender: I think...
    Riddle Sideways: "History of the Roman Empire's use of Weak Nuclear Forces." with chocolate at break

    SophiaSharon Larnia: some people have nearly photographic memories, and I seriously did wonder what the difference is, it doesn't seem to be just based on intelligence
    Lucinda Lavender: sounds like strong material Riddle...
    Riddle Sideways: could minds really be different
    SophiaSharon Larnia: my 9 sec stops almost feel neurological in nature, when i do them alot in one day
    SophiaSharon Larnia: "still"
    Riddle Sideways: yep, think that many times
    Lucinda Lavender: Seems to me that we have different minds...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: me too Lucinda, some people seem to come from a completely different place, it is hard to understand it
    Lucinda Lavender: but when we get to more subtle levels of consciousness we are more unified...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes
    Riddle Sideways: many same bio, but accessed differently
    Lucinda Lavender: I have so enjoyed studying kinds of intelligence
    Lucinda Lavender: yes
    SophiaSharon Larnia: well, i do know im visaul/tactile to a fault wonder if that is the source of the forgetfulness
    Riddle Sideways: one baby shown things, one baby read too, another sung to
    SophiaSharon Larnia: interesting Riddle :)
    Riddle Sideways: maybe you remember the color and texture of all you have ever been
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: smiles
    Riddle Sideways: but not care about the dates and facts
    SophiaSharon Larnia: that sounds about right
    Riddle Sideways: unfornunate that todays test is on facts and dates
    SophiaSharon Larnia: nods
    Lucinda Lavender: one technique for me was writing the info in an esthetically pleasing grid...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: ooh nice
    Lucinda Lavender: with color...
    Riddle Sideways: pitty that the date of the 100 years war is tied to a lavender pen that went dry years ago
    SophiaSharon Larnia: laughs
    Lucinda Lavender: ?
    Lucinda Lavender: so interesting...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes it is, I wish I knew more about it\
    Riddle Sideways: Lucinda, that really does sound like a photographic memeory
    Riddle Sideways: you have photos of the colorful grid
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I am not in school at the moment, but if i need to remember/study someth8ing, I will try that technique, i am intriqued by it
    Lucinda Lavender: well...no. sorry. It is what one mentor suggested for me...to stimulate planning.

    Lucinda Lavender: I do not like my handwriting...
    Lucinda Lavender: so I do not feel inspired by the planning calender...
    Lucinda Lavender: hard to fit experienc in to soconfining a picture?
    Riddle Sideways: I do not like planning, so I draw doodles on the calendar
    Lucinda Lavender: beautiful doodles...I bet...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hah me either Riddle, my planner is the fridge
    Lucinda Lavender: it's contents or it's decorations?
    Riddle Sideways: ah, hard to fit experience into b/w, a notecard
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)) a post it, usually
    Lucinda Lavender: ah yes...
    Riddle Sideways: (or left-over chocolate cake)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: what left overs
    Lucinda Lavender: with a cup of tea...
    Riddle Sideways: lol
    Lucinda Lavender: amazing how much information we hold
    Riddle Sideways: I still open the fridge and fondly look at the place my chocolate cake use to sit
    Riddle Sideways: "HEY, who ate my cake!!!"
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia looks innocent
    Lucinda Lavender: as does Lucinda...

    Riddle Sideways: ah, the holding of info is not quite the point
    SophiaSharon Larnia looks at Yak
    Lucinda Lavender: say more..?
    Riddle Sideways: you are full of info. now give it away
    Lucinda Lavender: ok!
    Riddle Sideways: to give just the right info when needed

    Lucinda Lavender: my family has discussed something called synesthesia before..have you heard of it?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: oh yes
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i am fascinated by it as well
    Lucinda Lavender: some people picture the calendar year in a circle...
    Lucinda Lavender: both my daughter and husband...
    Lucinda Lavender: my picture is like a winding path...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: my mind pictures are generally about color
    SophiaSharon Larnia: sometimes shapes
    Lucinda Lavender: some people picture color for letters too
    SophiaSharon Larnia: nods
    Lucinda Lavender: good day all!
