PUZZLE OF THE DAY
Answer to the last puzzle: The river was frozen and the cat walked across on the ice to the other side.
The new riddle:
When moving forward in life you'll be doing this for sure,
But physically you do it without even knowing,
And when you're all done part of you keeps going,
You want it that way so you keep learning,
Both hearing and deaf people use the left hemisphere to process language.
You cannot tickle yourself, because your brain anticipates the touch.
Milk, cheese, and peanuts can help induce sleep.
