know the 10 signs # 7, schools broke, dang pill, football :), basketball

7     misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace steps

a person with alzheimers disease may put things in unusual places
they may lose things and be unable to go back over the steps to
find them again    
sometimes they may accuse others of stealing  
this may occur more frequently over time

whats typical or normal
misplacing things from time to time, such as a pair of glasses (my
wife she has this problem) or the remote control (thats a man thing)
now where is my shovel

from www.alz.org

well the financial crisis has hit the schools here hard for next years
big cuts are in store for most of the districts
there will be no bail outs for them
one of the local schools is closing an elementary school and laying
off administration employees and teachers
they have come up with some novel ideas for raising money
one school district is putting ads on their buses to raise
maybe  they could put electronic google ads on their buses
(problem is you cant control its content)
they also copyrighted or registered their school mascot

could try to cut the football budget some
or could cut excessive travel for sports, band, administration,
or teachers
or could cut excessive administrative meals
just dont sacrifice the kids education

started the higher dose of aricept  yesterday
the side effects all came back
nausea, abdominal pain, tinnitus (ringing of the ears),
hyperactive(was able to get my garden all ready to plant
for the spring-composted, fertilized, drippers redone, mulched)
and those dreams were even better-no no r rated ones- last

hopefully the side effects will abate over time like it did
when i started the pill originally

lets see packers vs bears
good tradition
its cold-no advantage
new hot qb vs uh-oh its jayyyyyyyy
green bay wins is my prediction

then its jets vs steelers
mouths vs tough guys
newest qb vs big ben
jets are my prediction
ben takes a beating today

horns win
first loss at kansas by jayhawks in 70 games
first win there by horns
maybe horns are real
doubt kansas looses any more conference games
prediction was wrong
