Tony Robbin's

Who saw the premier of Tony Robbins show "Breakthrough" last night? I only caught the end of it, very interesting.

Some of his quotes:
"Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives.

In life you need either inspiration or desperation.

Live with passion!"

and a cute wine holder even though it is hard to see.

Another shoe lover

I went to the Vans store today with Sandi, Adrian and Jacob. Adrian got some cool shoes for back to school. Jacob tried some on but his foot is too wide for the slip ons, too bad they are so cute. He is going to be a shoe boy like his brothers.

New fashion statement?

These are cute if the baby is only crawling around the house but what about when you go out.

Do it yourself

When I came home from vacation by door bell was broken. I went to Home Depot today purchased a new door bell for $3.94. It took me less than 5 minutes to take the old one off and install the new door bell. It works:)

Great Singles Ad

Reported to have run in the Atlanta Journal:

"SINGLE BLACK FEMALE seeks male companionship, ethnicity unimportant. I'm a very good girl who LOVES to play. I love long walks in the woods, riding in your pickup truck, hunting, camping and fishing trips, cozy winter nights lying by the fire. Candlelight dinners will have me eating out of your hand. I'll be at the front door when you get home from work, wearing only what nature gave me... Call (404) 875-6420 (404) 875-6420 and ask for Annie, I'll be waiting....."

Over 150 men found themselves talking to the Atlanta Humane Society.

Shards of Glass

Has anyone seen the new Truth commercial? They are advertising popsicles with shards of glass in them. Different flavors and for adults only. Nothing is mentioned about smoking just implied:)

So many others things...

Loved the beach, the weather was beautiful. Especially the days we were not at the beach:( It rained almost every morning and cleared in the afternoon. I saw the fishbowl, this is were veterans are laid to rest. Went to the Hype 50 studio and met some of the dance crew. Fireworks were fun with the kids. Found lots of cool stuff at the Flea market. There was a seal on the beach by the house for a day, he was just relaxing. Went to Waiamai Falls and Hanuama Bay, a nature reserve. Picture with the Duke in Waikiki.

Nuuanu Pali

Desi is a great tour guide! This state park has the most incredible wind by the cliff. It is said durning a battle the soldiers were either forced to fight the enemy or jump off the cliff to their death. The winds are the soldiers who jumped.

There were some tourists holding on to a sign while a friend lifted his legs to see if he could fly.

Ha means breath of life. The ancient greeting of Aloha was originally reserved for loved ones. It involved rubbing noses and inhaling each other's breath(or ha). This is considered the most heartfelt welcome and the foundation of aloha.

Ha is also a show at the Polysenian Cultural Center. It was a great love story! The cultural center has so many things to experience. There are different villages to visit such as Hawaii, Tahiti, Figi and several others. Each village has an activity for everyone to particiapate in if they choose to. I made a fish out of a palm leaf. Took a canoe ride and got rained on and watched the parade down the river.

Great shopping in Waikiki downtown and at the resorts. I went to the farmers market and found some cheap souveniers. Had a Mai Tai at Rum Fire and enjoyed the scenery on the beach.

Pearl Harbor

Great documentary of what happened December 7th, 1941. Such a tragedy so many people lost their life. I took the boat tour out to the Arizona Memorial, you can still see some oil drops coming from the ship. Our tour guide referred to this as the tears of the soldiers lost.
