In our lives we all do things that we are so very proud of. For all of us we will want to leave our "Legacy" of life to those who will come here after our time is finished. My question is: What will mine or yours be? Will we write a novel, paint a masterpiece, sing, play music, become an actor? How and what will be tied to our own unique name on this earth? I'm thinking mine will be a scene of a lovely beach or a garden on a painted canvass. Bright colors, bold statement about my life as seen through my own eyes. I need to get busy with that goal. What will your "Legacy" be?

Makua Beach, Kauai, Hawaii

This is a beach and area that is off the beaten path for a vacation. It is stunning and full of wonderful nature... Very green and scenic. A great place to sit back and enjoy some peace and quiet from the everyday stress of life... Put away that cell phone and computer, listening to the waves and feel the warmth of the sun. Magnificent!

The mystery of the snowflake is being pondered as I'm writing this. Last night while watching the midnight snowfall, I decided that "Snowflakes" are Art in its purest and most unique form. Each one glistening and glowing making its own light, illuminating wherever it may fall. The evening was so bright and beautiful. Just like a painting. The snow was glowing. Each snowflake is indeed its own special artwork. A true and rare beauty in each tiny snowflake... Reminds me of the days in school when we cut out those paper designs, we called snowflakes.... The good old days... do you also remember? I hope so...

Cut your Cable bill and save $$$$

In these tough economic days, looking for ways to save can get time consuming. An easy way to cut your cable costs, is simply to look for a basic plan. Most give you about 30 channels for around $10.00 or a little more. You could also try Netflix for as low as $7.99 per month. And don't forget the public library for Free! They have so much to choose from, even new movie releases. Also, check out sites on your home computer such as: for continuous stream of all types of programming. Keep checking with your friends and family also, as they may find something new too!

Save $$$$ on your cell phone...

You may even be able to cut your cell phone bill in half! We did just this with the new Walmart " Straight Talk" plan, available in most areas. It is a pre-paid plan with many options. We chose the $45.00, unlimited talk, text and internet. Works great, sounds clear, and good reception also. Not only did it save on the base price, but really cut the taxes. A win , win for us! So far quality service and pricing, give it a try and save those $$$$... Good quality in the phone unit too! Simple Living is always better!

Same Price, Smaller container

Yes, in this ever changing world we live in... Have you been noticing at the grocery store some major changes? You are right! Some of our most visible and used products have reduced the size of their containers, but the price is the same, or maybe more? Hagen Daz ice cream, 14 ounces, to 12 ounces... Okay it is not a big deal, but a new trend for the future. This ultimately makes our cost more and more when we shop. I think that I will buy less also, not because of the size, but just to save dollars anywhere I can. Did anyone see that in some areas a five pound bag of sugar is now a four pound bag? Same price... Interesting isn't it. For more information, did an interview this morning. Also, check out your favorites at your local stores...
