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.

Make a Website

First of all I must thank Chad Lamothe for totally revamping Aunty's website.  Chad first critiqued the original honoluluaunty.com on Fiverr.com and gave it a whipping, deservedly so.  Aunty then hired him for a very reasonable fee to fix it, and he did!  2nd of all, mahalo to you, Aunty's readers!!!  Now Aunty feels like a new butterfly that has emerged out of a cocoon. One day, number 1 son sat me down in ...

Google ranking

Ranking higher on Google searches is very desirable.  Every once in awhile, I would check in to update SEO because an email would arrive and say that it was overdue.  I have no clue why I was doing that, but the message made it sound like something Aunty should do on a regular basis in order to rank higher on search engines. Aunty didn't really realize how important search ranking was until monitoring visit ...

Monetizing a website

Chad Lamothe of Goodfella Marketing did Aunty a HUGE service when he reviewed Aunty's old website and totally blasted it.  Not only did he revamp it and task me with re-formats that took weeks (Aunty works slow), he also taught me about how to monetize the site. Monetize?  I told him that I don't like sites that have screaming ads or force people to put their contact info in to get a peak at something they ...

Like Heaven on Water

Aunty's pal Sandy has a fantastic picture on her wall of a photo she snapped with her camera one day from her lanai.  It was a cumulus filled red, gold and indigo sunrise sky taken during those days when our Hawaii sunrise and sunsets were unbelievably beautiful because of the dust in the air from an erupting volcano in the Philippines.  Mount Pinatubo in 1991.  It is a picture that stops Aunty in her track ...

Thai Valley Cuisine Review, Kalama Valley

Aunty's next dream car is Uncle's nightmare.  It is a sweet little SUV made by Mercedes Benz, the GLK350.  Each time I see one on the road, I go, "Oooh, there it is!" and Uncle's face puckers up as if he was sucking on a lemon.  Uncle does not like Mercedes Benz.  He likes Toyota, period. Well, one day while parking at Costco Hawaii Kai, a black GLK350 pulls into the stall next to us, and Uncle hurries into ...

Super Duper website making Sale!

This is the CHEAPEST that Aunty has ever seen from Hostgator!!! *Note:  sale has ended, though Hostgator often has sales of 25-30% off.  Hopefully they have this awesome 50% off again for their birthday next year! If you have been thinking of having your own website (see Aunty's how to), Hostgator is having a birthday sale - for just 24 hours today, Tuesday October 22.  Sale ends at midnight Central Time - ...

Lessons from a Flipper

Being part of HiREI has many benefits, and one of them is being part of the women's group, Hawaii Women Real Estate Investors (HiWIRE for short). The October HiWIRE meeting was sparsely attended with Gary DeBose as the featured speaker.  Gary has done hundreds, if not thousands of deals, most of them using other people's money and other people's talents to find/purchase/fix great real estate buys, and sell ...

Lipstick, lipstick on the lips

Korean dramas on DramaFever.com now have a LOT of commercials nowadays unless one subscribes to their Premium service for $9.95/month.  No thank you, since Aunty uses those commercial breaks to get water to drink or restack a pile of papers that needs attention. Anywho, one of the commercials was about long lasting lipstick by Revlon. Okay, guys, this really isn't a post for you.  However, it reminds me of ...

If you like Stairway to Heaven…..

On December 2, 1012, the remaining members of the Led Zeppelin band were honored at the Kennedy Center.  Heart performed for the 3 remaining members, which brought them to tears. "There's a lady who's sure, all that glitters is gold......."  Classic, timeless, beautiful.  Click play, then pause to let it load, and Enjoy! ...

CashFlow Game Review

Aunty first played Robert Kiyosaki's CashFlow game at a 3 day Rich Dad Education seminar in Las Vegas.  Boy, was it fun!  All of Aunty's competitive juices kicked in, and everyone couldn't wait for their turn to toss the dice and impatiently waited while people did the changes on their Income Statements. Bam!  Already, a lesson in accounting was built in, the kind of accounting that each of us really needs ...
