Grandma's year-end memory test kit...

Test Your Memory!

It's that time of year for us to take our annual brain test.   Exercise of the brain is as important as exercise of the muscles. 
As we grow older, it's important to keep mentally alert. If you don't use it, you'll lose it!
Below is a technique invented by grannies to gauge how your memory compares to the last test. Some may think it is too easy but the ones with memory problems may have difficulty. Take the test presented here to determine if you're losing it or not. The spaces below are so you don't see the answers until you've made your answer.  
OK, relax, clear your mind and begin...

1. What do you put in a toaster? 

Answer: 'bread.'
If you said 'toast' give up now and do something else. Try not to hurt yourself. 
If you said, bread, go to Question 2. 

2. Say 'silk' five times.  Now spell 'silk.'  What do cows drink?

Answer: Cows drink water 
If you said 'milk,' don't attempt the next question. Your brain is over-stressed and may even overheat. Content yourself with reading more appropriate literature such as Auto World. 

However, if you said 'water', proceed to question 3. 

3. If a red house is made from red bricks and 
blue house is made from blue bricks and 
pink house is made from pink bricks and 
black house is made from black bricks, 
what is a green house made from? 

Answer: Green houses are made from glass
If you said 'green bricks,' why are you still reading this? 
If you said 'glass,' go on to Question 4. 

4. Without using a calculator - 
You are driving a bus from London to Milford Haven in Wales
In London, 17 people get on the bus. 
In Reading, 6 people get off the bus and 9 people get on. 
In Swindon, 2 people get off and 4 get on. 
In Cardiff, 11 people get off and 16 people get on. 
In Swansea, 3 people get off and 5 people get on. 
In Carmathen, 6 people get off and 3 get on. 
You then arrive at Milford Haven... 

Without scrolling back to review, how old is the bus driver? 

Answer: Oh, for crying out loud! Don't you remember your own age??
It was YOU driving the bus!
