    While I still have your attention … I do, don’t I? … ‘cause I know you are waiting for the first joke! And before I give you that one, I will plead with you to find the full script of Meryl Streep’s acceptance speech for her CBD Lifetime Achievement Award. Wow! Wow! Definitely worth your read. So now we laugh … and laugh and even LOL!

    In preparation for the New Year, I started a course by Brian P. Moran that takes you through important steps to reach both immediate and long-term goals for your life. One part of the preparation is to think about what you would like to have, do and be in 5, 10 and 15 years from now. As the parent of an 8-year-old, I calculated my daughter’s age in those time increments and created my goals accordingly.

    Whew, I’ve had enough fireworks, parties and first of the year political scares! How about you? After too many parties, and listening to all the jabber jabber, I now fully believe that some people should use a glue stick instead of Chap Stick! Now, I probably could stop with that one … but more to come!

    We are now three days into the New Year … howze it going, my friends? This first one will start your day with glee … just follow the instructions correctly: #1. Open a new file in your PC, #2. Name it “My Housework,” #3. Send it to the recycle bin, #4. Empty the recycle bin, #5. Your PC will ask you, “Are you sure you want to delete Housework permanently?” #6. Answer calmly, “Yes,” and press the mouse button firmly! #7. Now, don’t you feel better and positive?

    Hey friends, it’s holiday cheer time, so let’s get the politics out of the way quick! Chosen as the best political typo of the year is the following, seen in an article in The New York Times: “Yes, we truly are a country of the people, by the people and for profit!” Now gather around the piano for some Christmas caroling, Hawaiian style!

    December is a great time to look skyward and check out the wonders of the night sky with your own eyes. Dec. 21 is the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. While the contrast between day and night is not as extreme as seen on the mainland, sunrise in Waimea on the solstice is at 6:54 a.m. with sunset following 10 hours and 55 minutes later at 5:49 p.m.

    Aloha friends and it’s another jingle, jingle article. Are you ready? Is all your shopping and mailing done? Do you avoid the post office … even though you need more stamps and must mail that last package? Well, just remember … yep … my most favorite … “What happens under the mistletoe, stays under the mistletoe!”

    Many caregivers choose to help out their adult loved one “temporarily” and next thing they know, the years have rolled by and they are burned out. It is helpful to remain conscious of whether you’re involved in a temporary fix or long-term situation if you are providing care for a loved one.

    The season is here and I am certain most of you have boxes and bags all over your house from Black Friday. Interesting name for such a day … maybe Green Friday would be better … think about it!

    Question: How much should I tell my adult children about my estate plan?

    Hope you all had a very, very, happy Turkey Day, with all the trimmings. My favorite is cornbread stuffing, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. (Excuse me while I wipe saliva off my computer!) Best of all is the gathering of family and friends!
