The VeggieTales version of the book of Esther in the Bible is the best! Their version of Jonah in the Bible is great too. What I like about VeggieTales is their accurate interpretation of the message in those two books of the Bible. While there are multiple lessons to be gained from every Bible account, […]

I did not like growing up with a last name that no one can pronounce correctly on the first try. In a 99% white neighborhood, the Chinese surname Leung was strange. I was tired of having to explain it, spell it, correct it and still, the sound apparently does not exist in the English language. […]

Last Friday, Audrey and I spent our annual mother-daughter overnighter at the Hyatt Regency in Irvine. I’ve used Expedia.com to book hotels numerous times. This time I tried Priceline.com. What price should I enter? I definitely wanted nothing less than four stars, their highest rating. The Marriot and Hyatt was being offered on Expedia.com for […]

Another 49-cent movie yesterday – we watched Memoirs of a Geisha. I read the book a while back, and knew what to expect. I don’t like to be surprised in movies. I am scared of surprises and bad endings. The movie was nicely done. The cruel and sex parts of the books were not overplayed, […]

Just what I need At the 98 cents or more store, Audrey spotted this ice cream scoop, apparently for gangsters. Look closely at the yellow starburst on the label. It says, “Bullet Proof Plastic.” Just what I need! In case the ice cream gets attacked, the scoop will save the ice cream for safe consumption. […]

Jump! On Monday, I went with Audrey and her 2 friends, Nicolette and Emmeline, to Little Tokyo. Our adventure began with taking the Metrolink from Walnut to downtown Union Station. How nice it was not to have to drive. The train was smooth, fast, and convenient. Union Station is like an airport with signs and […]

Have you seen Chicken Little, the Disney movie version? There is a place in Walnut that rents DVDs for $1 a day. On Tuesdays, it’s only 49 cents! Mike rented Chicken Little for 49 cents. It is a cute movie with some life lessons: Don’t assume something can’t happen just because you think it can’t […]

Amy’s Crazy Hair Day On Saint Patrick’s Day, Amy’s school had Crazy Hair Day. I did her hair with little ponytails on one side of her head. I thought it looked cute! A lot of the students sprayed their hair green. What fun it is to be a kid!

When the fig tree does not bud, and there are no grapes on the vines; when the olive trees do not produce, and the fields yield no crops; when the sheep disappear from the pen,and there are no cattle in the stalls, I will rejoice because of the Lord; I will be happy because of […]
