Yesterday is but
tomorrow is today's dream.
Kahlil Gibran, 1883 - 1931

Memorizing using rhyme-keys: for ordered or unordered lists
First, memorize key words that can be associated with numbers.
example: bun = one; shoe = two, tree = three, door = four, hive =
Create an image of the items you need to remember with key words.
Four basic food groups-- diary products; meat, fish, and poultry; grains; and fruit and vegetables
Think of cheese on a bun (one), livestock with shoes on (two),
a sack of grain suspended in a tree (three), a door to a room stocked with fruits and vegetables (four)
The object to rhyme-keys is to build associations and images with numbers and key rhyming words. This image in turn helps you remember the target word. It takes practice, and the trick is to not remember the rhyme but the association!
