A Phone Call From Hawaii Returned To My Childhood Sweetheart When I Dream Many of my poems in Starlite Cafe have been deleted because their system would not allow me to modify them. However, due to content, I left some where the graphics show wrong or do not display at all. The poems are still readable. As time goes by I will be adding a lot of those poems back to this website. If you find any of my poems in Starlite Cafe you are interested in you may want to request to purchase a collection. Thank you. My Starlite Cafe Poems The next website, E-bags, has many interesting items of which have RFID Blocking. My first encounter with them was when preparing for our trip to London and Paris. I purchased E-bags packing cubes to keep our clothing organized, a Pac-Safe purse, credit/debit card holders which are called boarding pouches and are worn under the shirt or blouse. They all have RFID Blocking. Plus I also purchased their Pac-Safe luggage. My husband was reluctant to wear the small pouch under his shirt but once we were packed and ready to leave, he was glad I purchased these products. Consider using an RFID product for your camera or sports gear. Be sure to look for the letters RFID Blocking for safer travel anywhere, locally or elsewhere. Regarding RFID Blocking: U.S. passports issued starting in 2006 have RFID tracking chips. RFID chips work by using radio waves to communicate. Credit cards, debit cards, micro chips implanted in pets, and many more things have RFID chips. How can we protect a micro chip in our pets from being scanned? I need to do research on that. In theory somebody can scan through your pocket or purse and retrieve your personal information. The use of RFID Blocking is to prevent remote scanning. e-Bags Start here before you travel Wheelchair Travelers Help While preparing the food for our new hummingbird feeders my husband came across the instructions to add a "glug" of something. The Local Palate explains unusual cooking measurements i.e. what is a glug? Although that may be new a term for us, I thought I knew what it meant but did a search for it. As an added bonus, I also found this next website which explains why we cook with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Be sure to read the 101 of Olive Oil at California Olive Ranch or go here: 101 of Olive Oil We were looking forward to when our fragrant Sweet Tea Olive Trees blossomed; however, they did not survive the winter months. My husband left a lot of our plants in the garage and they became root bound. My son came over to help plant them. One Camelia plant did not survive the winter either. We may be purchasing more Olive Trees and did plant more Camelia plants but locally from Lowes. However, Brighter Blooms offer sales.

I lived in Hawaii and was a member of a hula troop. Hawaii Magazine online Expansion for Papahanaumokuakea Approved Princess was my Service Dog and a gift from my daughter, Lydia. My neighbors told me what Princess would do before a seizure and so I started paying attention to her. There is a section for Princess in my website linked on my list/poem page. You may also purchase her book at,, barnesandnoble, Barnes and Noble also has my book as a Nook. Do a search for "Princess and the Caterfly: life as a blind service dog and cancer survivor" and you will find it all over the web. I wrote it in 2009 hoping to complete it before she died. She had to be put to sleep in 2011 a few days short of her seventeenth birthday. Something her veterinarian did to her forced the issue. Go to her section here to read more about her. Paws For A Cause trains dogs for different handicaps such as mobility, blindness, hearing, and seizures. Princess was very much in tuned to my body.

At the links below you will learn more about lifeguards, what the flag colors mean, the beach conditions, events and more. Galveston Island Beach Patrol Galveston WebCams Galveston Beaches Galveston, Texas We purchased a gases monitor from Coburn's in Tyler. The cost was a little over $200 on sale. Click here for a picture of the INFIVON Gas Meter. It can catch more gases than the The Flint/Gresham Fire Department's meter. Theirs catches only four gases. We met two fire department employees at the Subway in Gresham on Old Jacksonville Hwy. Sunday, Nov. 20, 2016 after church. They initiated conversation which is how we learned about their gases meter. Plus they only walk through your home. You turn the meter on outside first, then walk through your home. If the meter doesn't beep right away, you place the nozzel close to or next to where a leak may be. It will make a beeping noise. There are several lights on the meter. The louder it beeps, the more lights are lit. Ours lit around the base of our toilets, in the guest bathroom bathtub drain and in one of the sinks in the master bathroom. The louder the gases meter beeps the worse the leak and you might need to evacuate your home. It does not tell which gas is the problem only that there is a gas leak.We already had a Carbon Monoxide Monitor. that is what saved our lives. You also cannot smell carbon monoixide. If you do not have a CO monotor get one. I had carbon monoxide poisoning in 2015 and was hospitalized several times within less than six weeks. Nursing staff in the emergency room had to work hard to save my life. If you want to know the symptoms send me an email. However, a burning in my chest, throat and nose was the first indicator accorging to the guy at ERI (Environmental Research Institute). They are now called Environmental Consulting Inc.

The hallmark of university communities is being open to and even-handed in the exploration of ideas. Justice For All Exhibits explore when human life begins, review abortion facts, and question arguments for maintaining the status quo. All should want accurate abortion information and be increasingly wary of slogans that purport to solve the moral issues behind abortion, whether they be viewed as pro-choice or pro-life. Spend a few minutes reviewing the Exhibit to see if you agree that abortion is an unthinkable human injustice.

Dark Blue Knight Australia Vince Bell New Mexico Dan Windheim New York Linda Fullerton New York I was a brain injury nurse when I became brain injured and this is my website. If you have questions just ask. I plan to add some information about brain injuries and also battles with social security. Wait till you see pictures of the wreck I was in and social security said I could go back to work as my previous position as a secretary. I was a nurse and had so many restrictions on me if i was a secretary I would not have been able to perfom the job. They also said I was only depressed and had carpal tunnel syndrome which could be corrected with surgery. Fact: I had a subdural hemmorhage, a fractured skull, and diagnosis closed head brain injury and more. They did not pull all of my medical records and called my nutritionist one of my doctors. Somebody transcribed the word phythiatrist to psychiatrist. Talk about messy situations. These are two entirely different types of physicians. That information will be put back as a separate section in my website called "The Caterfly." Read what Linda Fullerton has to say please. And me, your webmaster Texas A message from Linda Fullerton, President and Co-Founder of the Coalition for Social Security Disability Reform. "Nobody should have to endure the hell that this system imposes on the disabled of this country. So the best we can do is tell everyone what is going on and fight back. There is a reason that both of us are not dead yet and in my case I guess this is it. Good luck and be well." Texas Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services (DARS) It was through this organization that I was able to go to classes for the computer. They also helped me with uniforms and eyeglasses to be able to attempt to go back into the workforce. The Hawaii Rehabilitation Services also helpe me with equipment to attempt to built my own business building websites. However, once back in Texas, the government would not allow the expenses as a tax deduction. The business never got off the ground. Several years ago, a friend of mine had built a website for Florence Coleman, our dance teacher we had in our youth. He could no longer maintain it and asked if I would. Editing his text and photos and creating new graphics, I made it a new section in my website. A few former students also sent me photos. It might go back up again, not right away. Thank you for your patience. NOTE: If you are interested in the Florence Coleman section being back online, let me know. Goodwill Industries is where I took the classes to learn Microsoft Office.
