From “junk” to cash, with eBay or Amazon

Aunty did a post about selling on eBay a couple of years ago.  Aunty also took (paid some bucks) an eBay course from an eBay guru who was a power seller.  Truth to tell, Aunty did not use much of the information since a lot of it was for true rookies and some were for power sellers that are willing to devote all of their time loading, selling, packing, and shipping. Aunty is more of a "hobby" eBayer, sellin ...

4-7-8 Breathing exercise for life, and magnets

Aunty first heard about this 4-7-8 breathing exercise from Kay of Musings.  This supposedly helps you fall asleep, and so Aunty, on the few occasions when it was hard to fall asleep at night, would breathe in, hold, and exhale continuously, and find herself becoming light headed - but still wide awake. Then, a link in one of Dr. Mercola's articles was to Dr. Andrew Weil's instructional video on only doing 4 ...

Scannable, a needed app

There are many times that we need to scan things - in order to save a document, send one, or to help us organize the tons of papers that we really don't need. Aunty does have a small portable scanner by ScanSnap that works great, but is limited to paper no wider than the standard 8 1/2", and the thinness of paper. Amy Lynn Andrews is one of Aunty's gurus (though she doesn't know it) for website creating, bu ...

Another Ala Moana Hotel update

2 days in a row!  Normally I wouldn't have reported about the owners' meeting except that it had the insurance tip and my rather impulsive decision to run on a board/committee.  Am still mulling over the wisdom or dumbness of that, but it is just for a year, and a year speeds on by. Back in October of last year, Aunty went to an auction for one of the units at the Ala Moana Hotel.  Her bid price was beat by ...

Owner meeting at the Ala Moana Hotel

Aunty attended the 2017 Ala Moana Hotel Condominium Annual Meeting yesterday, very curious to hear from the new owners from the Mantra Group, and to talk story with fellow owners.  After the meeting, an Owners' Forum is held, and following that, an after meeting party in the room next door with food, music, and drinks. There are 1100 rooms, 90% of which are owned by people like Aunty, who rent them out usin ...

Be Be Cream = mercury bummers

Aunty was all excited to share her age spot busting discovery (thanks to Pal Cookie/Lee) in the inexpensive pink plastic Be Be Cream from Cambodia.  Truly, it worked!  Aunty's age spots faded to the point of wonderful - and people who got up close and touchy (face massage, hair dresser, etc.) would tell Aunty that she had beautiful skin, woo hoo! HOWEVER, a comment from reader Yuko on a recent post about mo ...

Your magic number for retirement

Michael Ford of the Palm Beach Letter (highly recommended) recently covered figuring out your magic number for retirement.  Aunty likes to live comfortably - but it doesn't just happen.  Most people fall into 2 categories when it comes to figuring out their retirement needs:  1) procrastinators - those that put off or don't really want to face what will be, and 2) pluckers - those that just pluck numbers ou ...

5 morning stretches – so easy, and they work!

One of the better health newsletters that Aunty subscribes to is Live in the Now.  The articles that arrive in my inbox are daily, and quite interesting.  The sales copy of its Stop Aging Now product line which correspond to health issues are compelling.  The "deals" are enticing.  More times than not, Aunty takes the bait and orders from them. The latest is a topical skin treatment with vitamin C that soun ...

And da winnah for Aunty’s SUV is……

This is the first time that Aunty took so much time and effort in finding her perfect next vehicle.  Usually, it is a one stop deal for a car that catches Aunty's fancy, and then surprising Uncle and kids with it in the driveway. This time Aunty wanted a compact SUV that had a power lift gate, looked good, smelled good, drove well, and was quiet.  Also, it had to have a lane change assist feature that would ...

Your personal & family info website, much too visible

Short note:  Aunty will be making her compact SUV decision on Sunday.  So exciting!  Meanwhile, here is some info on preventing prying eyes: Pal Fay and #2 daughter both sent messages on the same day about FamilyTreeNow.com.  This is a website that gathers info from who-knows-what sources and then lists your date of birth, family members, known associates, places you used to and currently live in or own.  A ...
