“Rubbernecking”

We just can’t resist… when a traffic accident unfolds before us… to see what’s happening, and allow a gripping, snooping, curiosity to scrutinize the fuss. Rubbernecking is the irresistible behavior to gawk with a very graphic acrobatic straining of our neck. The purpose is to get the best view of […]


Texas Reds Steak and Grape Festival!

What a wonderful time we had at the annual Texas Reds Steak and Grape Festival!  Thanks to ALL those that came out to enjoy the festival.  Having the opportunity to  meet some of our listeners, and meeting new ones, made the day extremely enjoyable and a memory we will have […]


“False Memory”

Why aren’t strong emotions, ardent convictions, and descriptive details enough to guarantee that a memory actually happened as we believe?  Remembering references no dependable brain file folder or video image archive we can retrieve. Each jogged memory continually reconstructs past events bit by bit.  Just as jugglers constantly set their […]


“Event Boundary”

“Oh shoot, now why did I come into this room? I can’t remember and I am getting more behind!”  That happens to us all, we’re in one room and headed into another, only to find our search reason, has suddenly vanished from our mind. This forgetful moment leaves us so […]


“Why Judge Brett Kavanaugh Hasn’t Caved”

“Why Judge Brett Kavanaugh Hasn’t Caved” After two days of US Senate Confirmation Hearings regarding Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the US Supreme Court, there has been no evidence of the Judge caving to vitriol from a mean spirited, and clearly orchestrated negative audience, or the grilling from a seasoned […]


“Gut Feelings”

Stress sure turns tummies into anatomical gymnasts, with insides all entwined! “Butterfly” flutter and flapping feelings, often have dreaded cramps following closely behind. Our gut holds more neurons than our spinal cord, allowing both head and gut, have their own brains on board. Both absolutely receive impulses, record experiences and […]

Summer’s ending, school’s beginning and “early Fall” means many students fear going back to school.  Avoidance, refusal, and worse case fear of school commonly dominate early fall conversations as a rule. Most students greet summer’s end with sad resignation and back- to-school jitters. But one in ten also finds the […]


“Brain Freeze”

I scream, you scream, we all scream, for ice cream.  We scream for flavor… but icy pain is not what we savor.  Few phenomena scrunch our faces like a Brain freeze, or sphenopalatine ganglioneuralgia… a science term not said with ease. Sphenopalatine ganglions are nerve bundles controlling blood nourishing our […]


“Reading Brain”

As folks replace magazines, newspapers, and books with digital tablets and smartphones, our capacity to think and reflect on what’s before us, is suffering.  When we thoughtfully read, our brain builds new connections between its visual, language, and conceptual areas that can be described as valued rearranging. Even when we […]


“Skin-Seat-Stickiness”

“Skin Seat Stickiness” It’s amazing, when I sit on a smooth surface for a bit, my thigh skin stick to it!  The reason is because water and cohesion sticky properties that our skin simply can’t outwit.  We know water, as H2O. A molecule containing 3 atoms, two hydrogen and one […]
