i already grow rosemary and have not heard this before!
it is an age thing -of course memory cant be as good, and also I now do the voluntary work and it is quite stressful which makes my memory worse!
My short term memory used to be superb, really good. I'm not sure if it's the effects of having a baby or just encroaching old age but it's not as good now as it used to be but it's still a lot better than many other people's. My longterm memory is pretty sharp too, if I get the right trigger! A lot of my childhood memories seem to be connected to food, so tell me what or where I ate on a particular day and I can then tell you everything else about that day...
My short term would I feel be working better,than my trying to remember what happened way back in 1987?
I can't remember a lot of long term, but hey! who wants too anyhow? lol
I'm happy with my short term, for now.
