So sorry to hear that, Douglas.
I only have something trivial to report today: when I meet new people, I often forget their names right away. Why is that? It is not because I have a bad memory. It is because I am focusing all my attention on the handshake. I shake hands gently (because I am not a barbarian), but I know that other people grip is tightly as they possibly can (because they are barbarians). And so in the act of shaking hands, I focus my attention on not getting my hand crushed, thereby missing the person's name. Thank goodness for the Internet, where I can look up their names.
