Rich Dads say, so Aunty listens

Aunty's favorite Rich Dad is Robert Kiyosaki.  He had this to say about the recent US government shutdown: "The U.S. Government, due to partisan finger pointing and squabbling, has shut down.   Neither side could reach an agreement on a spending plan for the government.  Mail will still be delivered, the military will still be active, Congress will still get paid, but there are those many other services tha ...

Broke da ALS Team and the Magic Slate

  Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or ALS, is more commonly known as the Lou Gehrig's disease. Our friend Gary, aka "Black", was diagnosed with ALS last year after he had slow speech pattern and difficulty swallowing.  Aunty and his wife are friends from hanabata days (hanabata days = long long time ago).  This weekend was the very 1st annual ALS walk in Hawaii, and over 300 people gathered at Kapiolani ...

Aunty will be a millionaire for how much?

Aunty just signed up for another newsletter - couldn't help myself - the copy was that good, and the information that I was promised was going to be awesome.... It is a "field manual" survival book and a 12 month newsletter by Dr. David Eifrig (I know, his name could be a joke if you switch around a couple of letters) that will let me know how to get silver coins super duper cheap (no worries Paul, that one ...

Tired of Teeth

Aunty loves to visit Jalna's photo blog site because it is such a delightful slice of Hawaii local-ness with great photos and links to her photographer friends' sites. I know Jalna, kinda, through our mutual pal Fay, so I post comments from time to time.  Like the last time when she had the very funny clip of the Three Stooges on stage doing "NIAGARA FALLS!!!......Sloooowly I turn.........Step by Step...... ...

Revving up for Real Estate

In the beginning.... Aunty initially began this info/website because of real estate investing.  After spending thousands of dollars on workshops, some excellent, some mediocre, we took the plunge and began to purchase real estate in Las Vegas.  Why Vegas?  Because it was on sale at the time. We used a legal team that was savvy, proficient, and trustworthy.  We found the best real estate agent who understood ...

Stock Storm signals – to watch & ponder

Aunty subscribes to over 30 newsletters - YIKES!  Didn't realize how many until I counted today, but they takes the place of me watching the news on TV or reading a daily newspaper.  Most of them are opinions, and many of those opinions are based on facts or a series of facts, and some are just guesses based on je ne sais quoi (the dunnos).  The way I figure, these people are very very smart and study finan ...

Root canals and Crocs

Today, Aunty saw the bestest dentist in Honolulu, Dr. Hideki Kurokawa (1060 Young Street, phone (808) 538-0047) because I could barely eat my morning cereal today due to extreme pain from my #19 tooth. He looked and immediately sent me to Dr. Kimo Chun to get a root canal.  Dr. Chun's office is in the Ala Moana Building and overlooks the Ala Moana Shopping Center, the Yacht Harbor, and the site of the soon ...

Aunty just got back from a 4 day trip to Vegas - mostly to learn techniques and projects from the best of the best in the polymer clay world at the 10th annual Clay Carnival headed by my buddy Donna Kato.  It was so wonderful to see old friends there and meet new ones, and get to play with clay!!

Closing Cycles = Wowza!

Aunty was going to title this latest post, "Closing Cycles = Zounds!" but changed it after Aunty looked up the word.  "Zounds" is an abbreviated version of "God's wounds", or a mild oath.  Not very pleasant stuff.   "Wowza" a better word in this situation, interpreted as surprisingly amazing or oh my gosh. In this weekend's seminar with Meir Ezra (review coming soon), we were constantly challenged to define ...
