Financing in Hawaii

When we were just married and starting our family, an incredible opportunity arose for us to buy the house we loved and currently lived in.  We were renting, and kind of half arsedly looking for a place to buy.  I liked almost every house we looked at, but Uncle would say, "too hot", or "junk", or "no more lichee tree".  Then, the owner of the house we lived in offered the house to us for a great price (Haw ...

Mangoes and Lost Opportunity

We have a white pirie mango tree in our yard.  Our good friend Charin gave it to us as a sapling.  I waited for years for the little sapling to grow bigger and bigger, and one year it gave fruit!  It was delicious.  Juicy, sweet, smooth, ambrosia for the senses and tongue. Unfortunately for any of our plants, one of my interests is bonsai trees.  I love the look of spreading branches, controlled growth and ...

Master Sha in Honolulu this week!

About 3 years ago, Aunty saw Master Sha at the McKinley High School Auditorium, and was almost electrified. He taught us a funny song - Lu La Lu La Li, and about how he came to be a servant of the Divine/God/Allah/etc. He was a cute man, not what I imagined a powerhouse to be. It was an evening of really weird weather - lightning without thunder. Uncle, being of very strict Christian belief, did not want to ...

Korean Dramas

  I don't watch too much tv, but sometimes I get caught up in Korean dramas with Uncle. Our favorites are the historical dramas of the Joseon, Goguryeo eras with the unbelievable martial arts and political intrigues. We watch these on,, or These are free (!), but beware - they are addicting! "Boys Over Flowers" was one of the first to get me really hooked.  It ...

Warts and Aunty

I used to have warts on my fingers. Everyone was polite to me and no one (except one of my kids) would say "Yewww, you have warts!" so I would nonchalantly treat them from time to time with prescription wart medicine, over the counter wart medicine, and even getting them burned off at the doctor's office. It would look like the black hole of Calcutta for a while and seem to go away...... then they would ret ...

Egg Whites for Burns

This from my sister in law: A young man sprinkling his lawn and bushes with pesticides wanted to check the contents of the barrel to see how much pesticide remained in it. He raised the cover and lit his lighter; the vapors inflamed and engulfed him. He jumped from his truck, screaming. His neighbor came out of her house with a dozen eggs, yelling: "bring me some eggs!" She broke them, separating the whites ...

Drugs = Side Effects

I don't like drugs. Although I believe modern medicine has many excellent facets to dealing with disease, it is also allowing us to bypass healthy habits for the quick fix. We all KNOW the basics of what we should be doing - eat less, eat better foods, exercise, poop daily, etc. Modern medicine seems to believe in modern theories - cut it out or dose it with a drug. Naturopathic healers believe the body can ...
