Thoughts from Aunty’s frontline

Aunty is worried about the current economic situation in the USA.  Hyperinflation because of so much money printing (QE - Quantitative Easing), interest rates, unbalanced budget, the unknown for our future generations, etc.  Because of this, Aunty tries to learn from financial experts. Of the 49 (!) newsletters that Aunty currently subscribes, Aunty believes that John Mauldin is the most dedicated to report ...

When it’s okay to play Candy Crush Saga at work

How much do you think that you are worth per hour?  Aunty figures she is worth $50 per hour, on a good day. If you have a paycheck, you are worth at least what your hourly rate of pay is.  If you are self employed or in your own business, you are worth what you are capable of producing.  A housewife or househusband is worth at least what the going rate would be for a cook, cleaner, chauffeur, etc. Time is o ...

Make a Website

First of all I must thank Chad Lamothe for totally revamping Aunty's website.  Chad first critiqued the original on 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 ...
