If you're into speed try Lumosity's Speed Match


The speed bugs will really love this one, you can get faster and faster at it, unless you're me, of course.


There are two to choose from, the old and the new, a little trick pulled recently by lumosity.

Have a go at each before you decide which one you'll stick with if your ego needs a boost, and whose doesn't? Well, maybe that's something to think about if in you're one of those who just stay fixed on what you want.

These games train your information processing by determining whether the symbols match, don't know the meaning of determining? you soon well, funny, that, about our English language.

Symbols range from circles to triangles to squares to flower outlines to cutaway squares and others and with different colours. If you just want to go for it, these are the games for you, why not give them a go, you can get a free trial for a week from Lumosity without being asked for 1 cent, that is surely an inducement and just think what you'll do for your brain and reflexes, mine are not as good as they should be at present, but I'll come good again.

Happy Gaming

Summer Sickness


If you've got a cough you can't seem to shake, it could be worse than you think. Learn if your summer cold needs an ER visit with five quick questions.



5 Questions to Ask If You Have a Respiratory Infection

By Darria Long Gillespie, MD


A good friend called me the other night – she’d been coughing for several days and
now she had a fever and chest pain (oh, and it was 11 o’clock at night, which is when these types of symptoms seem to crop up). She wanted to know if she should go to the ER. Now, my friend has an ER doctor on speed-dial, which was convenient for her. But otherwise, when is a cough or respiratory infection bad enough to head for medical help – STAT?

While there’s no one set of rules (and it’s never black or white!), here’s a cheat sheet of questions to ask yourself (or, of course, anyone with these symptoms). If you answer yes to any, you may need ER-level care.

Severity: Is the cough bad enough that you’re having trouble breathing? Have you started wheezing? Are you breathing rapidly just to get enough air?
Duration: Have your symptoms not gotten better, or especially worsened over 7-10 days? This can be telling, since prolonged courses usually suggest something like pertussis or pneumonia.


Output: Is your cough accompanied by green or thick mucus or blood? You need to seek care immediately, especially if you’re coughing blood.

Other symptoms: Do you feel chest pain or pressure? Are you coughing so severely that it makes you vomit or unable to speak? Has your cough significantly worsened over a few days? Do you have a fever, feel confused or dizzy? Sometimes it’s not the cough alone that’s worrisome, it’s the associated symptoms that suggest a more serious condition.


Other history: Do you have a chronic medical condition such as COPD (emphysema or chronic bronchitis), a history of heart failure or a weakened immune system (for example, a cancer patient on chemotherapy)? It’s no surprise that someone who has a long-term illness is going to be at risk for things like pneumonia or just have a harder time recovering when they get sick. Age is another factor to consider, especially for those age 75 or older. Others to put in the higher risk category are long-term smokers.


As I always tell my patients, if a symptom significantly worries you even if you don’t meet the criteria above, call your doctor or go to the ER. No one else can judge as well as you, and that’s why we’re here, 24/7, 365 days a year.
