Tha wonderful word belongs to author TERRY PRATCHETT, not to me. And he coined it on account of being given this bit of bad news by his doctors.

Go read. Just another sign (in case you ever doubted it) that life in this vale of sorrows is DEEPLY unfair!

Alzheimer's Test

It's been so long since I posted to my blog that I had to re-start with something ... unusual. So here's something I received from my friend Viji, by e-mail:

Alzheimer's Text
The following was developed as a mental age assessment by the School Psychiatry at Harvard University . Take your time and see if you can read each line aloud without a mistake. The average person over 40 years of age cannot do it!
1. This is this cat.
2. This is is cat.
3. This is how cat.
4. This is to cat.
5. This is keep cat.
6. This is an cat.
7. This is old cat.
8. This is fart cat.
9. This is busy cat.
10 This is for cat.
11. This is forty cat.
12. This is seconds cat.

Now go back and read the third word in each line from the top down and I betcha' you cannot resist passing it on.
