Mnemonics

My husband mentioned this morning that the moon was waxing. I have never been able to remember the difference between waxing and waning... but Ashley said her teacher said, "Wax on, Wane off."



After I stopped giggling, I remembered my history teacher, Mr. Brooks, telling us that sometimes mnemonics don't always work as well as they should. He had a student who wrote on a test, "In fourteen hundred and ninety three, Columbus sailed the deep blue sea" instead of the correct "In fourteen hundred and ninety two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue." Thanks, Jen!!!

What is your favorite memory devise?

A Published Author

Nope.. not me, but the next best thing. My husband has an interesting hobby of buying old boats and fixing them up. He does a really good job, imho. See what you think:



He's written the first of a two-parter on rebuilding the boat trailer. Check it out here: Duckworks Magazine. I'm proud of him. Feel free to leave comments and I'll forward them to him :-)
