Mindblog is back...

Still jet-lagged, I'll be taking some time to cobble myself back together again. Here are a few vacation photos of Deric in London, and Len and Deric in Hagley (Hagley is a far western surburb of Birmingham where we used a colleague's house as a base to explore some spots in the Cotswolds). If I ever needed more personal objective data on the decay of one's brain plasticity on aging, I sure got it when I started to drive on the left after a 14 year absence from the UK! What I recalled as being rather fun and effortless (negotiating complex roundabouts, etc.) now went with much more energy, concentration, focus, and stress. This, I presume, reflects the difference between the 67 year old and the 53 year old versions of Deric's brain.
