The Wall Sreet Journal – April 14, 2014

It’s been a long winter of eating soup and crackers over keyboards and rubbing phone screens on dirty corduroys. But cleaning gadgets isn’t about breaking out the Windex or other under-sink supplies

If smeary or greasy where you tap,
Why not a smartphone clean-screen APP?

Every day memory lapses hit any age…Losing things is irritating yet we are a forgetful people.The average person misplaces up to nine items today, and one third of respondents to a poll say they spend an average of 15 minutes each day searching for items.

“Brain Freeze “happens all the time,
(I just forgot a funny rhyme.)

NPR- April 9, 2014

On a nature hike along Germany’s Baltic Coast in 1913, 20-year-old Richard Platz scrawled a note on a postcard, shoved it into a brown beer bottle, corked it and tossed it into the sea. Where it traveled, no one knows for sure, but it was pulled out of the Baltic Sea by a fisherman last month not far from where Platz first pitched it.It’s thought to be the world’s oldest message in a bottle.

YOUR Tweet in a bottle, tossed in the sea,
Read a hundred years hence, what would it it be?
