There has been a good amount of talk recently on the relationship between Alzheimer’s and exercising your brain, and a recent study suggests that lifelong mental engagement prohibits the formation of a certain type of plaque that forms on the brain. In general, being mentally active is always a plus. But this suggests positive outcomes for personal health over the long term. ~by Ian Cunningham | AARP Blog Author

— Yolanda, a youngster from Yonkers, loved playing with her yoyo while wearing her favorite dress with the yellow yoke. Yesterday, after a big breakfast of leftover candied yams, she yielded to the temptation to go off into yonder valley to yodel, carrying a yardstick with her to fend off would be yoyo thieves.

— Yesterday over yonder in Yonkers, I met a yodeling youngster named Yolanda, yielding a yoke made from a yam colored yardstick and yellow yo-yo.

— Yesterday, Yolanda watched the youngster from Yonkers spin his yellow yoyo while he yodeled a tune from down yonder, being driven on a cart pulled by a yoke of yaks. He taught these animals to yield to pedestrians, using a yardstick to guide and control them, and cut up yams as incentive to plow through the city streets.
