Key changes in the development of Ravel's 3rd movement

I know you could work them out but I prefer to memorise key changes and I was having trouble with the fast changes in the Development of the third movement of Ravel's Piano Concerto in G so I came up with a memonic I thought I'd share!
Its a bit stupid but it works for me!

Process 1- E major

Process 2- Cmajor (with A minor tendancies)

Process 3- A major

Process 4- Bb minor

Process 5- F#minor

Process 6-Db major

Every Cat And Bay F(#)elt Duious 

and now the clever part...

all the words with an odd number of letters (every, cat, and, dubious) are major keys
all the words with an even number of letters (baby, felt) are minor keys!

Hope it helps!

Not bad, but Process 1 should be in Eb major/'tonal centre', and for the last process of this Development section, I've got Eb maj bars 206-209, and then E minor bars 210-213 (with uses of a C# half-diminished chord).
