7105 - Happy 43rd Birthday, Danny!

Didn't get to play pirates or introduce Dan to Mel yesterday... commitments beyond his control stopped him in his tracks. Mel's Gramma is moving in with her for the next month or so (while her hip mends up). We'll see how that works out. I think Mel is looking forward to grabbing some good recipes and quality Gramma time (and feeding said recipes and time to me, too...)

M & I spent much of my day on call watching A&E, doing web research and general snuggles between my taking cases for missing kids. About 9 cases today, pesky! If I've got to be locked in at home... that's the way to do it. Newt was extra affectionate to Mel, too...much moreso than he ever was with April.

I'm guessing GP and Katt are on the way home at this point.... too bad that I missed 'em again this year, but there's always next!

More Mel today!



Favorite Smallware

Most of these programs are small, under a megabyte and don't require an install. I use some of them every day, and others I use only occasionally. All of them are free. (nice set of links at the bottom, too)


In the year 2005 I resolve to:
Stealing all of my music off of the Internet.

Curry cures Alzheimer's?

The pigment that makes curry yellow, curcumin, does a better job at treating Alzheimer's than the majority of drugs being tested. (Interestingly, India has one of the lowest Alzheimer rates in the world.)

The new UCLA-Veterans Affairs study involving genetically altered mice suggests that curcumin, the yellow pigment in curry spice, inhibits the accumulation of destructive beta amyloids in the brains of Alzheimer's patients and also breaks up existing plaques.
