Old minds are like old horses; you must exercise them if you wish to keep them in working order.
This is how I exercise my mind.
John Adams. I have a vague idea that he was an American president.Vague ideas are no good to me. I have to find out the FACTS.
John Adams (October 30th, 1735 – July 4th, 1826) was the second President of the United States (1797–1801).
Excuse me a moment.
Nope. That was Robert Adam (3rd July, 1728 – 3rd March, 1792) He hasn't got an interesting hairstyle so I won't bother you with a picture of him but instead...a fireplace:
See, now my mind is exercised, as well as my horses.
Is my mind in good working order? Not by most people's standards maybe - but perfectly acceptable for muddle-headed me
