Aunty

Aunty is a new senior citizen and loving this phase of her life. Less responsibilities, less fear of being weird, able to do more of the things that I want to do! Older, yes, slower, yes, but life is even more wonderful in my golden years and I look forward to even goldener ones.

Wheel……Of……Fortune!

Aunty and Uncle don't have access to regular tv, so we were very happy to get this YouTube link to watch our #3 on Wheel of Fortune. Vanna White was really really nice, and SO thin! Pat Sajak was also very nice, and super witty. The entire staff was like one big happy family. We clapped when we were told to do so, and we were ultra quiet when they had us be quiet. Being there was one of the highlights of ou ...

How to peel lots of garlic – fast!

Thanks to Amy Lynn Andrews' Saveur link, here's how to peel a whole head of garlic, super fast!  This is a great tip for those times when you need a LOT of garlic, as in the Garlic Mayo Grilled Shrimp recipe. In case you cannot view this video, food editor Todd Coleman smashes a whole head of garlic with the palm of his hand (some garlic cloves fly around), then he puts all of the cloves into a large stainl ...

Brain Fitness Hawaii Review

Our daughter signed up for Brain Fitness Hawaii sessions because of anxiety last year.  She did well and suggested that I also try it, since I am always under stress. It is true.   Aunty IS always under stress, juggling too many things, taking care of too much stuff.  Stress makes Aunty thrive.  However, this time, I was at a point in my life with a truckload of crap of my shoulders.  I had extreme tension, ...

To Tweet, or not to Tweet

*Update:  Aunty was tweeted by Yunji de Nies!  Not sure what that meant, but daughter said that was awesome! Do you know about the Malama Card? It saves you money at stores on KS properties - check out @HonoluluAunty's post https://t.co/AwCVMzCivo— Yunji de Nies (@yunjid) April 15, 2015 Aunty was totally clueless about tweeting.  It sounded like something new and irritating.  However, Chad Lamothe ...

HIMA – Hawaii Internet Marketers Association

Back in November 2013, Aunty attended the first HIMA meeting, not really knowing what she was getting into.  Aunty went just to support Randy Fujinaka's new venture because Randy is such a good guy. George Del Barrio and Thomas Trentz were the main speakers.  Tom's presentation was good - high tech power point slides and how to reach and utilize the internet to help market ourselves.  Geebz's (George Del Ba ...

Where to stay in Hawaii

Hawaii is an expensive place to visit.  We have wonderful hotels that can cost an arm and a leg, and some not so wonderful hotels that can cost and arm and a leg. Kamaainas (local people) are sometimes treated to hotel deals when the travel season is slow, but those deals are not available for our wonderful visitors. One site that Aunty would recommend for reasonable accommodations for kamaainas and visitor ...

Lexington Law Review

Okay, don't tell Uncle but Aunty had ANOTHER hit on her credit score, from a beautiful and rising score of 762 and to a less beautiful score of 737. Honestly though, it really wasn't Aunty's fault this time. Our hardly used GM Card (now Capital One) had a balance of $94, and Aunty did an online payment before it was due.  All is well until Credit Karma notifies Aunty that her credit rating has dropped becau ...
