Notice the past tense; I have to relearn these every time I use them. Now mainly C,C++, SmallTalk (Obj C). My memory can not keep the knowledge in there. One problem is that I use them so seldom that my brain cells are filled with other things (food, choir anthems, Bible studies, sleep,etc.) & there is a limited number of neurons.
I find my memory is not as good as my wife's, daughter's, son's, etc.. I remember things that no one else does (say figment) or remember things incorrectly. One memory trick I use is ask my wife to remind me, this seems to help me remember.
Winter is here also. My daughter has been writing about her weather for a few posts. We reached -18 degrees F last night & this morning when I took out Frisbit.
Another hero, electric utility repairmen who go out in the horrid weather to keep the electricity flowing!
MIND (n) A mysterious form of matter secreted by the brain. Its chief activity consists in the endeavor to ascertain its own nature, the futility of the attempt being due to the fact that it has nothing but itself to know itself with. From the Latin mens, a fact unknown to that honest shoe-seller, who, observing that his learned competitor over the way had displayed the motto "Mens conscia recti," emblazoned his own front with the words "Men's, women's and children's conscia recti."
