Sia - My love (by Sayori382)

This song was stuck in my mind for months. And I couldn’t figure out where I had heard it. Turns out it’s from The Twilight Saga -Eclipse. Not exactly what you’d call my favorite movies. But I love this song so much. It’s perfect. 

Alive to Celebrate 101 Valentines Days

Today is my great grandma Venna’s 101st birthday and time celebrating valentine day. She does not use a walker or a cane, she has complete mental faculties, no dementia or Alzheimer’s. She know the names of every one of her children, grand children, great grand children and even her great great grand children. Grandma Venna is dedicated to helping people and working hard. Though she is limited by her fragile body, she makes hot pads for her family every day. She helps with the cooking and setting the table, she tries to go and get the mail (even though she’s not allowed!!). I hope I have even a small fraction of her work ethic, and I hope that if I should live to be 101+ that I will continue to be a participating member of my family until the day I die. 

Well, today is Valentines Day. Maybe you, like me, don’t have that “special someone” to share it with. So today look for the people in your life who have inspired you, helped to shape you into the person you are becoming. Use today to reflect. Are you proud of who you have become?  Tell the people you love that they matter to you, that their kindness and good deeds have not gone unseen. Today, don’t debate politics and religion, or old family feuds, just be grateful. You are not alone. Find someone to say thank you too and I love you, to.

Valentines Day should not be a day to give, not to gain. 

Happy Valentines day.  Happy Birthday Grandma Venna.

When you read this sentence to yourself, it’s likely that you hear the words in your head. Now, in what amounts to technological telepathy, others are on the verge of being able to hear your inner dialogue too. By peering inside the brain, it is possible to reconstruct speech from the activity that takes place when we hear someone talking. Because this brain activity is thought to be similar whether we hear a sentence or think the same sentence, the discovery brings us a step closer to broadcasting our inner thoughts to the world without speaking. The implications are enormous – people made mute through paralysis or locked-in syndrome could regain their voice. It might even be possible to read someone’s mind. Imagine a musician watching a piano being played with no sound, says Brian Pasley at the University of California, Berkeley. “If a pianist were watching a piano being played on TV with the sound off, they would still be able to work out what the music sounded like because they know what key plays what note,” Pasley says. His team has done something analogous with brain waves, matching neural areas to their corresponding noises.
