I have a lot of fun thinking about how free association connects so many ideas that it's hard to keep track of the divergent path. So I play the game "First I was thinking.....and that led to......and then that led to......." I'd like to believe that divergent thinking makes me a highly creative person rather than distracted and unfocused, but some days it's hard to say.....
Anyway, here are some of today's Seize the Day menu:
- A bird feeder made from a glass fish bowl.
- Several thought provoking questions:
** Why is it that when you transport something by car, it is called a
shipment, but when you transport something by ship, it is called cargo?** An estimated 6 million people in the United States have an
unruptured brain aneurysm, or 1 in 50 people.
** Women, more than men, suffer from brain aneurysms at a ratio of 3:2
** There are almost 500,000 deaths worldwide each year caused by
brain aneurysms and half the victims are younger than 50.
** The median age when aneurysmal hemorrhagic stroke occurs is 50
years old and there are typically no warning signs. Most aneurysms
develop after the age of 40.
Brain aneurysms have seriously scared me since I was 13 and a friend's mother passed away suddenly from an aneurysm. Since then, more people than I care to count have been struck down by aneurysms, the silent killer.
- Don't miss Monument Valley and even better Canyon de Chelly.
- Quote of the day: They say if you love someone, you should let them go - but they never say what to do when they don't come back.
- And finally - I don't know if this really happened while the Glenn Miller Army Band was playing, but if it did, I wish I had been there to see it because it's the coolest thing ever.
