    I googled 'memory helpers' in order to find a few ideas to steal and claim as my own....The first tip that came up was:

    WRITE IT DOWN. With the amount of things you have to remember in any given day, why should you try to stuff it all into your memory bank? When you want to remember something, the very best thing to do is write it down. Then, when you need to recall it, it will be there for you in an instant.

    Genius or what!

    There is a tip for remembering which way the clocks are altered in the UK and other less important places.

    Spring Forward and Fall Back

    ....although I guess that it is also possible to Spring Back and Fall Forward

    Re. planets: Sat on your anus - Saturn Uranus

    Stalactites (with a c because they come from the ceiling)
    Stalagmites (with a g because they come from the ground)
    I like this one because it also helps with the spelling....That said, I can't really say that I have had to use either of the terms that much throughout my life.
