I’m Madge and I’m fascinated with the puzzle that is the human brain. I love puzzles, brain teasers, logic games and even crossword puzzles and word searches. You won’t find me doing Suduko, however. Numbers aren’t my thing.

fighting dementia

I read sometime a long time ago that keeping your brain active can help ward off degenerative brain conditions like dementia and Alzheimer’s. My favorite aunt Polly is suffering from dementia now and I go see her at an assisted living facility in Knoxville, TN. I live in Chattanooga, so I usually go every weekend. I’m trying to find out if, by working with Aunt Polly on simple problem-solving exercises, I can help her retain lucidity longer. It’s not a scientific study, or anything like that. It’s just because I love her and want to help.

I write about my favorite websites, brain games, my visits to Aunt Polly and whatever else comes to my mind.
