Clearing Dangerous Piece Of Drift Wood

Aloha Khun Umnat

MaLee and I hope that all is going well, in your not so easy job, of taking care of the environment, we are proud to be a part of it, thank you for including us...
With some help from the beach chair vendors, we were able to remove a very dangerous piece of drift wood, from the ocean, that could hurt or kill a person on a banana boat, water skiing, jet skiing or wind surfing, it was mostly under water and was very hard to see...
Many people that make their living on the beach, often help me, I only need to ask and most will take time to assist me...

Your friends ready to help anytime we can...

With Aloha Gerry aka KOTO and MaLee

Celebrate Growing Older

This is something we should all read at least once a week! Written By Regina Brett, 90 years old, of The Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio

"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most-requested column I've ever written."My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more:

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

8. It's OK to get angry with the powers above. He can take it.

9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

12.. It's OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; the powers above never blinks.

16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
