6 Friday Fragments (Kindle, TV, Moon, Life, Brain)

Friday Fragments is hosted by Half Past Kissin' Time for bloggers to post a list of short things on their minds that aren't really enough for a whole post. I have a few this week:

Big News

Over at the Conscious Cat I learned about the Kitten Bowl that will be shown Feb. 2 on the Hallmark Channel. I am definitely going to watch this! It is part of Hallmark's pet project to help get more shelter cats adopted. We will be rooting for the Tabby Lions (Manny's favorite) and the Home and Family Felines (Spunky Doodle's favorite). There will be 70 kittens in this event!

Wi Fi Spot

Last week I was excited to discover that practically right across from where I work is a wi-fi spot where I can get my Kindle updated! I found it when the one farther down the street wasn't working one morning so I decided to give the other Arcade a try that is on the south side of Euclid Avenue and it worked!

Moon Names

I just learned last week that the full moons of the months have names! I posted about it earlier this week: Bus Stop Chit Chat Can Be Informative.

One More Hall Made a Difference

Last week at the nursing home, we were ready to leave but the lady that walks around with us wanted to show us the hummingbird puzzle she finished. Abby and Gerard stayed up by the nurses station but I went down the other hall with her and near the end of the hall we saw a woman lying on the floor calling for help. Good thing we went down that way! I went back to the nurses station told them about her falling and they came right away.

Brain Games

I got two DVDs of BRAIN GAMES by National Geographic for Christmas and really found them very interesting about how our brains work. I am very excited to find that this is an actual TV show and a new season is just beginning on the National Geographic Channel. Fascinating stuff!



Brain Exercises

I gave in and re-subscribed to for individualized brain training--just 15 minutes a day for just $5 per month. I decided to use some of my Christmas gift money on this because it does help sharpen up my brain and some of the games are actually fun! I also like seeing how I compare with other age groups. I compare well with my own age group but very low to the 30 yr. olds. I do way better than the teen group which made me feel good. Check it out at I think you can even play some of the games to try it without paying anything. It keeps track of your history so you are challenged to try to beat your previous high scores.

Keeping your brain sharp is as important as exercising your body.

Thanks for sharing about Lumosity. I've considered trying it, but didn't exactly know what it was. Thank for the info.

My brain could definitely use some sharpening. haha

Sandee said...

My brain could use some sharpening too. It used to be so very sharp too.

Have a fabulous day and weekend. Scritches to the babies. ☺

Good thing you were able to help that lady!

I love Hallmark even more now!
I hope the woman who fell is okay. It is so sad how the quality of life can be destroyed by a broken bone at that age.
I love brain games! (I need practice.)

Awesome about Hallmark Channel. And I am so glad that you were that to help that woman!!!
