Do you or someone you know have talent? People of all ages are invited to compete to win $1,000 in the May 15 Toledo's Got Talent Competition being held in conjunction with the Area Office on Aging’s Spring Fling.

This year’s Spring Fling will be held from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Sylvania Tam-o-Shanter, 7060 Sylvania Ave., Sylvania.

Once upon a time, there was a horse named Charlie. He would visit the homes of innocent people at night, and kick them in the leg, waking them from sleep. 

Poor Charlie was just misunderstood. Deep down, he was a good horse. He was simply trying to let these people know that they needed something and kicking them in their sleep was the only way he knew how.

So now that you know your Charlie horse may be carrying an important message for you, let’s try to translate this message into something more understandable (and less painful.)

According to the dictionary, joy is the emotion brought on by well-being, success or good fortune. When we’re feeling joy, we’re happy and finding good things in our lives.

While measuring joy might seem hard to do, there’s one test you can try. Think about what your initial feelings are when you wake up in the morning. Are they about the joy and excitement the coming day should bring, or are they thoughts of dread and anxiety for all the pressures and responsibilities you’ll have to face?

While most treatments for Alzheimer’s disease focus on improving memory, researchers at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center conducted a study aimed at slowing the decline of problem-solving and decision-making skills in these patients.

Thin electrical wires were surgically implanted into the frontal lobes of the brains of patients with Alzheimer’s disease to determine if using a brain pacemaker could improve cognitive, behavioral, and functional abilities in patients with this form of dementia.

Has spring finally sprung? Spring cleaning, anyone?

Spring is by far my favorite season. Everything is new again, fresh, bright, ripe with hope of new adventures. I’m a sucker for spring. If you share even a fraction of my spring enthusiasm, you may also feel that deep-down desire to get things cleaned up and sorted after a long and messy winter. If you feel that, I’d like to offer a somewhat random list of to-do items that may allow you to harness that spring feeling, while creating some lasting impact.
