I'm looking like I've onions for a few months and will dry them out now before hanging them up.
|I'm drying them for a week or two first|
|More soft fruit too|
|A busy bee not as worried by the heat|
Seeing signs of Olives growing on bushes I've had for a few years - not a normal crop to harvested in the UK in any numbers -
Mysteries of the Mind
|A lesson or two learnt|
I've had a fascination of late with how and what we are - largely I subscribe to a 'Newtonian Model' but recognise that we're still refining it.
One of the areas that seems (perhaps) knowable but where we're still putting together evidence is how the mind/brain works.
From the Mail on Sunday I saw a review of a book I'd like to read - Patient HM by Luke Dittrich
After World War II there was a rather 'Gung Ho attitude to operations on the brain the recipient of such an operation was a young man who was suffering severely from Epilepsy - partial Lobotomy performed and pretty much all short term memory was lost - this brain and the patient have provided a rich source of knowledge about howe the brain works - drastic way of doing it though.
Odd that a favourite fruit has avoided the radar- until now.

[I sometimes wonder where the tracks Strawberry Fields Forever/Penny Lane would have sat on the Sgt Pepper album - had they not been released the double A-sided single ahead of the 'Opus']
