I accidentally learned a possible method for remembering facts and dates long term. What do you think? NOTE: So much for my remembering dates. I said the Olympics were in 1948 and 1951. It SHOULD be 1952! Ha ha oh well. I’m happy to be corrected by by viewers.

  1. Another good one Bud you’ll always have such good stories and observances you laugh easily and you laugh at yourself you’re taking life to the fullest people can learn from that keep it up man hope to meet you someday

  2. Your a smart man Bud i have problems with English even so i try Bisaya but remembering it is the problem but Tagalog is bit easer for me as i watch alot of TV from Manila as my first wife was from near Manila but now its 18 yrs with the second but i find Bisaya alot harder to learn and rember

  3. That is the difference between learning with a class, and just learning on my own. In class I can get smiles for being smart. On my own there is no instant gratification. Great idea for a conversation. 👍

  4. I agree I’m not in cognitive decline it’s my camera. 🤣🤣 Ok now. In my opinion most of can stay sharp as long as we keep using our brain. The couch potatoes are the ones that just sit around and don’t think about things and interact with others that go into decline. Fot the most part. DISCLAIMER !!! Medical issues can cause some of the declines. Best wishes Bob.

  5. I am most likely wrong like always but were the olympics not in 1948 and 1952? every 4 years…. not 1951. Sorry if I misunderstood what you said as I am half deaf.

  6. haha you forgot to charge the batteries. So when one gets older its the short term memory that gives people problems. Where did I put the keys? what did you say your friends name was? what was the translation of that phrase I memorized yesterday, etc.. Long term memories stay with you forever. BUT, you have a desire to learn Bud so your mind will always stay sharp. I’m trying to learn Spanish and am really impressed by the way you speak Tagalog (sp). Plus you have a great sense of humor and zest for life. You will stay forever young with that attitude.

  7. Hey Bud, you always deliver interesting stuff….yes…I just make a list of things to get or attempt to do things…it would be great for me to learn viscayan, but haven’t find easy learning. We plan to retire there…my wife is from Daro!

  8. You never know when you will loose your memory. My dad is 72 and a year ago he was diagnosed with alzheimers and now he doesn’t know any of us. Before he was diagnosed with alzheimers his mind was as sharp as a 20 year old. It only took one year to loose all his memory. It’s was very sad to see him decline so quickly.

  9. Years ago I used to have so many phone numbers in my head I still remember them to this day. Many addresses and birthdays too.
    Now, with these smartphones and computers I’m totally lost on all the “new” things I temporarily have learned. I even wrote down my children’s numbers and stuck it in my wallet in case I lost my phone. I’m pathetic. 😂

  10. thanks for sharing,,shout out from Fresno,,where is the air and smoke is horrible due to fires, I do remember your trip ro Tulare Exeter when you visited your brothers, hope they are doing good.

  11. A friendly correction from another senior. The Helsinki Olympics were held in 1952, not 1951. Bob Mathias did repeat as Decathlon champion, the Finnish running legend Paavo Nurmi lit the Olympic flame and the superstar Emil Zatopek won the 5km and 10 km races for the first time (he would win both races again in Melbourne in 1956). The reason I remember these facts 64 years later is I loved running and the Olympics at an early age. I was only six in 1952, but followed the ’56 games and had read a lot of Olympic history by then. I think emotional involvement is important and I think you’re right about accountability being another important factor in memory.
