Brain Games For Kids And Maybe A Few Adults, Too:
Check out this fun site I found a short while ago! Plenty of fun puzzles and games to exercise your mind.

It seems Bill Clinton has just staggered out of the wreckage with a few pieces of the ‘donut’ stuck to his head like a giant sombrero; however his hairdo looks in fine shape.
The first ever MRI Lie Detector on a politician looks like a complete success! They just need to completely rebuild the facility and recalibrate. More fireworks to follow.
In an effort to expand the uses of existing MRI technology, scientists are beginning to separate liars from those speaking the truth using…
Dr. Ed Okello and his Tea-researching Alzheimer’s-fighting team from Newcastle University UK,
Have found some encouraging results in preliminary tests on slowing down the disease with Britain’s favorite drink (besides lager & lime).
Their findings, published in the Journal ‘Phytotherapy Research’,
