Here’s a word that caught my eye—and my memory. Below is a snippet of an article in the upcoming “Smitten” April/May 2012 issue of my magazine.
“It’s the same creativity she puts into caring for her family and writing a blog called …
… My Very Educated Mother (www.myveryeducatedmother.blogspot.com). It isn’t a comment on her education, but the beginning of a favorite childhood mnemonic for the planets in the solar system. (My [Mercury] Very [Venus] Educated [Earth] Mother [Mars] Just [Jupiter] Served [Saturn] Us [Uranus] Nine [Neptune] Pizzas [Pluto, which was still a planet back then])”
Say it with me: Carol uses a mnemonic to remember the tuning on her little ukulele: Good Cats Eat Ants (G, C, E, A).
Try this online memory game out and tell me your time!
I think that’s really cool. I’ll have to give it a try myself and see if it helps me remember stuff 🙂 🙂 Have a great weekend. Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather 🙂
01:52 !!!! I love memory games. Thanks for the link.
My mom taught us to use mnemonic devices to remember things at a very young age. It got me through school, piano lessons, etc., etc.
I still come up with CRAZY phrases to commit things to memory. This is a great word and a great tool.
