After years of thinking about it, Uncle decided that it was time for solar panels for our home. The timing was great - our electrical bill was edging up to $400/month, solar companies' prices had come down and systems were much more efficient, needing less panels and less wall space for the controls. After getting a few quotes from other companies, we settled on Alternate Energy. David Thompson was our po ...Read more ›
Places that Aunty goes to, only the good ones. On the rare occasions, if a business or product is really “junk” and should be avoided, then Aunty will review, but then again, maybe not because one person’s trash is another person’s treasure. K’den, this will only be the treasures.
This will also be where Aunty puts the businesses (like network marketing or MLMs) that Aunty has tried or is affiliated with. Lots of stuff, will be listed in chronological backwards order – sorry that Wordpress doesn’t have option to list alphabetically.
In November, we sold a property in Las Vegas that had appreciated in price by 70%, resulting in a gain of $90,000. Pretty sweet!

It is like a plate that holds our head in place, kinda like Atlas holding the world on his shoulders. It is also and more commonly known as our upper cervical. Cousin Teresa let me in on a fantastic lead - Dr. Joe Breuwet at ...Read more ›
[Update note December 2013: Here is an email sent to all Nerium distributors by the CEO Jeff Olson.: "In the last couple of days there seems to be increased competition between our company and another significant and respected company in our industry. It is not our style or culture to target another company in any way. There are two ways to have the tallest building, either by building yours the tallest o ...Read more ›
One promise that Aunty will make is no bull shit (excuser mon francais) about things, events, and people that are recommended or reviewed. If you check out the LifeVantage website, Protandim is the cure-all, heal-all fountain of youth; and TrueScience anti-aging cream will make your skin beautiful, wrinkle resistant, and corrected. This is Aunty's honest review of Protandim and the LifeVantage company pr ...Read more ›
