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.

Pickled Mango (mouth watering!)

Just thinking about it makes my mouth pucker.  It is getting harder to find common mangoes.  Common mangoes make the best pickled mango – better than Hayden or any other variety.  We also used to eat green or half ripe mango with shoyu, rice vinegar and black pepper.  It was so ono!  Ono enough to be worth the sore stomach after. From Hawaiian Electric - they always share really good recipes on their monthl ...

Mrs Tanaka’s Tuna and Potato Stir Fry

Mrs. Tanaka used to make the best after school snack for her granddaughter, and my daughters would come home raving about the tuna and potato dish.  I have recreated it here: Skin and cut raw potatoes into little logs.  Soak in slightly salted water, drain well, pat dry.

What upsets me is when people shun natural healing and call it quackery by telling me a story about somebody's brother's aunty who died because she didn't go to the doctor and instead treated herself with natural stuff, so all that natura ...

Brain test for fun

Friend Fay and Pal Les sent me this brain test - I suppose it is good exercise for the brain.  Don't take this test if you are tired. Numbers will appear on the screen.  Then, the screen will be blank with circles in the spots that the numbers previously appeared.  The point of this test is to click on circles in the order of the smallest denomination number to the highest denomination.  It can get tricky a ...
