How to pick a good ripe watermelon

Amy Lynn Andrews is a blogging guru that Aunty follows.  Sometimes she has excellent non-blogging tips. Recently, she shared Shareably.net's article about picking the perfect watermelon.  This was great for Aunty who usually doesn't buy watermelons because of the risk of getting a lemon - a non sweet or juicy bulky green globe that nobody wants or eats. The 5 key factors to picking, according to Shareably, ...

Wisdom is Wasted on the Old

Bill Bonner has a newsletter than Aunty subscribes to.  He owns Agora Publishing - a very affiliate based newsletter business - sometimes there is overkill in how many links that we are introduced to, but his insights are usually spot on and sage, so Aunty pays attention. His Bill Bonner's Diary post today started off with: POITOU, FRANCE – “My father told me to plant trees,” said a neighbor last night. “It ...

Avocados, Bananas, and the Olympics

What do these 3 things have in common?  A friend named Wandaful.  She is a wonderful (hence her nickname Wandaful) person and a sharer of useful information.  The first 2 are super useful tips for preserving Aunty's favorite perishable fruits.  The last is eye candy for the senses. #1 Avocados One day, Wandaful came by and gave Aunty 3 perfectly ripe avocados from her Sam's Club bag of 6.  Aunty loves to ea ...

Jalna’s husband’s crispy skin pork bake

Jalna's blog just kills Aunty sometimes.  She makes us laugh, feel whimsy, and then, SO hungry when she posts her husband and son's cooking results. A few weeks ago, she shared Wendell's Pernil - a Puerto Rican pork recipe .  The picture of the crispy skin pork jumped out and begged to be eaten.  Jalna assured Aunty (during the funeral picture taking day) that it was indeed ONO (delicious) to da max. Last S ...

Aunty’s Quite Wonderful Broken Bones

See this cute little doggie?  His name is Toshi.  He is our daughter's 7 year old Sheltie, and he is dangerous for old ladies who try to keep up with his running while walking on uneven Kaimuki streets.  That is how Aunty tripped, flew forward, and broke 2 bones in her left forearm recently. As Aunty struggled up, holding her dirty misshaped wrist and battling shock, Toshi was not concerned and of no help.  ...

Yellow for Yellowing Teeth?

Aunty's blog friend Kay of Musings recently posted about whitening her teeth with Crest Whitestrips.  It worked beautifully - Kay's teeth became movie star white - but had a few cautionary issues with sensitivity and erosion. Aunty used to use whitening strips, or the "trays" that are formed as troughs to fit and soak uppers and lowers in bleach solutions, but has recently opted for a cheaper, possibly safe ...

Broke da Arm

Aunty is now a patient, feeling impatient.  Last Wednesday, she tripped on someone's driveway while walking a dog and broke 2 bones just above her left wrist. Surgery was done on Friday.  Recovery seems slow - but there is no way to rush it. Time has been slowed down, too.  Life goes on, and the weeds are rejoicing because Aunty's daily yard duties have been curtailed - for now. ...

In Aunty’s Garden

Aunty seems to be unsociable lately because she has been fanatic in doing her favorite task - every single day - from late afternoon to when the sun goes down.  Weeding, weeding, and weeding, non-stop.  This is a bit surprising because usually after a couple of days of weeding, Aunty's hands and body are so sore and stiff, she has to take a break.  The difference has been the BEMER - a pulsed electromagneti ...

Is Oprah a big deal?

Watching Wayne Dyer's video on Wishes Fulfilled took Aunty on a search journey online about a movie he was involved with called "The Shift" produced by Oprah Winfrey's channel. This online journey took me to Oprah.com, the website of the famous Oprah Winfrey. Aunty never really got into Oprah before.  Our neighbor, Mrs. T would watch daily, almost religiously, as she rode her exercise bicycle every day at 4 ...
