another alzheimers self test, w2ad10, good basketball

if you have not taken the sage test in yesterdays blog go do
it first before you take this one

i took the sage test yesterday and passed without problems

now go to dr ozs test at  www.doctoroz.com/quiz/memory-quiz

i took this test and did not do as well considering my age
and my amount of education (12 years post high school)
the results were the same as was on the more involved
neuropsychological test i took at ut southwestern
it is disturbing still whenever i take it

if you dont do well on either of these tests see your
doctor for further evaluation
eg depression can cause this or hypothyroidism or low b12

also if you have a friend or family member you are worried
about have them take the tests

week 2 of aricept (donepezil) 10 mgm
having less morning sickness which is helped by antinausea
medication and reglan and omperazole
still with dizziness/vertigo that the anitnausea medication helps
with some
still with some degree of insomnia but a good noon time nap
helps that a lot-was known for that though before i started the
hopefully these side effects will resolve over time like it did when
the 5 mgm dose of the medication was started
just hope those dam dreams dont go away
wish i could dvr them though and rewatch them
still dont know if i made it back from the flight mission in the
fighter jet
next week i go back to the neurologist for a follow up visit and
to schedule more diagnostic tests which will or wont solidify
my diagnosis

always liked to watch games where a dominant team plays an
inferior team  and the inferior team decides to change the flow
of the game by stalling the ball

many fans dont like to watch those games but i do
the inferior team has to have good basketball skills in order to
pull off the win against the far superior team
it comes back to good basic ball handling skills and basic
basketball moves like back door moves, good passing skills,
proper spacing, good shot selection, team defense, good screens,
blocking out on rebounds, and ....

its like watching a chess match or a good checker game

last night in northern texas the #12 team in the nation was almost
beat by a much inferior team in triple overtime
the inferior team stalled the ball the whole game
there was no scoring in the first overtime
the inferior team had a chance at the end of regulation and the
first overtime to win on buzzer beaters but they missed both shots

the final score was 38-33

would have loved to have seen the game maybe can find it on
you tube or somewhere

my brotherinlaw he was called the white fox when he coached
he was at a real real small school and usually played much larger
bet he did this a lot and probably was successful at it
know teams did not like to play his teams

have a good weekend

  1. I'm not all that big a basketball fan... not that I don't like it, but just never had a passion for it.


    Anytime a "David vs. Goliath" situation comes up in a game, and the coach is known for his strategy and success against greater opponents, it's worth watching.

    A notable game like this was the first game after the Cowboys coach was fired and the quarterback was out... I didn't think that win would be any reflection of how the team would finish the season, but it was fun to watch a team redefine itself, enough, to win.

    I guess it's a good statement on keeping up the good fight, despite the odds.


  2. okay let's talk about Donald Duck.
    Donald had three nephews, huey,dewy and louie.
