What's For Dinner?
Make dinner time, family time!
Mind-stretching brain games and conversation starters. It's the perfect opportunity for sharing stories, building knowledge, strengthening character, and having fun!
How far back can you remember? How much do you remember? Share early memories with the members of your family. Pull out as many senses and sensations as you possibly can.
My earliest memory is from when I was about 2 or 3 and standing next to a swollen stream behind my house with my big brother. I remember seeing the force of the water as it rushed over the fallen logs. I could hear the loud sound that it made. I felt the cool spray of the water along with the warmth of the sun. I also remember how glad I was for the comfort and safety of my brother's hand holding onto mine.
The world is so big and bright.

Do You Like Snapping Or Posing?
Exercise of the brain is as important as exercise of the muscles.
As we grow older, it's important that we keep
mentally alert. The saying;
"If you don't use it, you will lose it," also applies to the brain, so.....
Below is a very private way to gauge your loss or non-loss of
intelligence. Take the following test and determine if you are losing it
or are still "with it." OK, relax, clear your mind and...
1. What do you put in a toaster?
Answer: "bread." If you said "toast,"
then give up now and go do
something else. Try not to hurt yourself. If you said, "bread," go to
2. Say "silk" five times. Now spell "silk." What do cows drink?
Answer: Cows drink water. If you said "milk,"
please do not attempt the
next question. Your brain is obviously over stressed and may even
overheat. It may be that you need to content yourself with reading
something more appropriate, such as Children's World." If you said "water,"
proceed to Question 3.
3. If a red house is made from red bricks, and
a blue house is made from
blue bricks, and a pink house is made from pink bricks and a black house is
made from black bricks, what is a green house made from?
Answer: Greenhouses are made from glass. If you
said, "green bricks,"
what the devil are you still doing reading these questions????? If you
said "glass," then go on to Question 4.
4. Twenty years ago, a plane was flying at 20,000
feet over Germany. If you
recall, Germany at the time was politically divided into West Germany and
East Germany. Anyway, during the flight, TWO of the engines failed. The
pilot, realizing that the last remaining engine is also failing, decides on
a crash landing procedure. Unfortunately the third engine fails before he
has time to attempt an emergency landing, and the plane crashes smack in the
middle of "no man's land" between East Germany and West Germany.
Where would you bury the survivors? .. . . in
East Germany or West Germany
or in "no man's land"?
Answer: You don't, of course, bury survivors.
If you said ANYTHING else,
you are a real dunce and you must NEVER try to rescue anyone from a plane
crash. Your efforts would not be appreciated. If you said, "Don't bury the
survivors," proceed to the next question.
5. If the hour hand on a clock moves 1/60 of
a degree every minute how many
degrees will the hour hand move in one hour?
Answer: One degree. If you said, "360 degrees"
or anything other than "one
degree," you are to be congratulated on getting this far, but you are
obviously out of your league. Turn in your pencil, and exit the room.
Everyone else proceed to the final question.
