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’s back with $30 more in her pocket, kinda.

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!! Aunty combined this trip with business - attending a Nerium Real Results Party hosted by Teuila in her beautiful ...

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 ...

Another opportunity to learn from a Master Mentor

Before I post the details, Aunty will copy recent comments that readers left after my initial review of Meir Ezra's workshop. Suze wrote:  Meir Ezra is a con artist whose agenda is to infiltrate small business and convert them to Scientology. Standard 101 for the Church. It starts off with with good content and get’s weirder and weirder as you go on, all while you are spending all this money to into an endl ...

Laters, alligators….

Uncle always looked forward to male companionship as he had a brew or two outside after a hard day's work, so Buddy was Uncle's best companion and listener since our household consists of a preponderance of females. Buddy, a labrador/hound mix, was one of two family dogs, the other being Gracie, a female grey brindle pitbull.  Anyone who has or loves dogs knows how wonderful they are because of how they mak ...

Diamond Head in the Desert!

Aunty went to Vegas last week for her very first Road Trip!  260 miles across the Mohaje Desert took us 4 hours on highways to Los Angeles in a U-Haul truck.  It was a blessing to have #2 daughter meet and greet Aunty at the airport, and even better, to DRIVE the 260 miles that had me a bit apprehensive because of the heat (100• in the shade!) and Uncle's dire warnings of snakes, heat stroke, getting stuck, ...

No Money Down?

Aunty has never done a no money down deal.  Why?  Because it is very much harder and more sinuous (having many curves and turns) to do than a deal with money. Most people that go to investing events and courses have a common refrain - "I want to invest but I don't have any money."  The lure of being able to swing an income generating deal without any money is strong, and the projections and testimonies of o ...
