even if they did not last until death.
Quote:Interestingly, older adults experienced the greatest memory difficulties with first-hand autobiographical information — and this is exactly where long-term couples gained the biggest benefit from remembering together. So, as we grow older, we offset our unreliable episodic systems by drawing on the support offered by a partner — a shared resource.
Hubby's memory is getting just as bad as mine, so lately we have to discuss, in detail, the past and we come up with a version we can both accept.
Whaler just always wins the recall game whether it's music artists or where I left the duct tape last.
I've always wanted to try making my own wine. Do you have your own recipes?
My memory is still good, perhaps a bit too good
First time I've tried making wine, an ad on kijiji said these people wanted to give away a complete set of beer and wine making equipment. We jumped on it, and it was complete, everything there. But I got a kit for the wine and followed instructions. There's still 4 or 5 bottles in the carboy but at the bottom and needs to settle again. I'd like to try a Riesling next. And took some very good advice to NOT add the sulphite packet.
Quote:Sulfites are a group of chemical agents added to food, beer and wine that prevent bacterial growth. The term "sulfites" includes sulfur dioxide and the salts formed from sulfurous acid, such as sodium sulfite or potassium metabisulfite. In the mass production of wine it is also used to prevent browning of white wines and to quickly end fermentation. Other foods high in sulfite are dried fruits, pizza, oven chips, jam, seafood products and processed meats. One in 10 people will have some reaction to sulfites with reactions ranging from rashes and itching to restricted breathing, asthmatic attacks, hives and anaphylactic shock.

It's strange how one appreciates life more when one's life is in danger.
Quote:But it turns out there is some actual science behind the phenomenon. There is a thing called broken heart syndrome, believed to occur when someone loses a close partner or spouse. Death of a spouse is recognised as one of the most stressful things that can happen to a person. But as well as the mental anguish and grief (which are themselves very debilitating and not to be dismissed), many forget that stress also has a physical component. Stress can cause numerous physical ailments, and if the stress is sudden and serious enough, such as if a spouse dies, then these ailments can be very serious, affecting the heart.
