Hi All, and hello from Canada. I thought I would introduce myself rather than be a forum lurker. Perhaps like many others here, I was enchanted by the idea of developing a better memory. Mine is a sad thing indeed, and it is my earnest wish to see it improved. I also hope to be able to sink my claws into the french language, as I am currently an anglophone in a francophone area, and having difficulty. Traditional "brute force" attempts have always failed me, and I have never been good at retaining the language. I have dipped my toes, ever so slightly, into the loci method, and am encouraged. Anyways, just really wanted to say hi. I'll think of something 'memorable' to say next time. Promise.
