N Is For Noob

I have no nests to show you.
I don't have trees near me. Urban living y'know, not much wildlife other than the hookers.
No, today I get to explain what a n00b is and why I happen to sometimes be one.

NOOB
(Internet slang, pejorative) A newb or newbie; refers to the idea that someone is new to a game, concept, or idea; implying a lack of experience. Also, in some areas the word noob can mean someone is obsessed with things.

So remember my post from last week about my mom?
I was so happy I got to show her how much I love her, and sent her the link to check it out.
She wrote me back, here is her reply:

That is most beautiful, just like you. Thank you for the great tribute. I read some of your other alphabetical posts. The one with the Dads made me cry, although happy tears. Only one mistake in the Mom one... Uncle Larry was born in North Bay, not me. I was born at Henderson, just like you and your sister. love you and thank you again for the lovely tribute.



So here is where I feel like a complete n00b. How could I not know my mom was born in the same hospital as my sister and myself?! What kind of kid am I?!
Plus, that information makes things so much cooler!!! My mom was born in the same hospital and my sister and me! Wicked!!! I'm sure not a lot of people can say that....

So hey, being a n00b isn't necessarily a bad thing.
It opened the lines of communication between my mom and I about our geneology. Now I have a craving to know more about my mom's background. I thought I knew it but learned so much already that I know I was wrong.

And that's a good thing.

Will you help a n00b today?

  1. how sweet to get to learn more about your mom. I'm an archivist and I have geneologists all the time emailing me, asking about family and photographs! {:-Deb

  6. Family history is always interesting. There are a few horse thieves, wild Indians, and inventors in my ancestry.

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong. There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline. Reviewy is a website that contains information on a number of different supplements that can be used to boost brain power and protect it from degradation.
