                Did you know? 

              ... that today is Catcher's Mask Day? The catcher's mask was first used in a baseball game on this day in 1877, by James Tyng of Harvard. In 1878, Frederick Thayer, manager and third baseman for the Harvard team, applied for and received a patent for the mask.

Can you recognize this photo?

For the next several months a photo from decades ago will be posted below.  You should be tempted to try and identify the person in the photo.  Write down their name.  Some will be easy; others far more difficult.  But this exercise will be a fun one for you to check out every couple of weeks to see if your memory is still intact and working!  The name of the person in the photo will be posted the next time a new photo is shown.

Last March 26th's photo was of:  Paul Gaugin, French post-Impressionist artist.

Here is our April 9th's photo:  This one ought to be very easy; but when was it taken?

       Some Revealing Myths About Dreams

Why do myths about dreams persist, no matter how unreasonable they may be? One possibility for the existence of these myths is because dreams are such a vital part of the one-third of our lives that we spend asleep. The more vivid they are, the more likely they are to lodge in our memories and prey on our thoughts.

The best way we can understand dreams is that they are only random impulses in the brain. These impulses are shaped by events that we encounter or remember during the hours we are awake. Think of them as a way of clearing out your mental filing cabinets.

While that may seem rather mundane, it's an attitude that can help you face the reality of dream myths. Let's rub out a few of those myths together:
