Dark Chocolate is Healthy Chocolate!

Did'ya Know?

In case your husband or boyfriend thinks that you are eating too much chocolate, well... I'll let you know right here and now that chocolate has more benefits than you might have ever imagined.

So in case he has something to say about that (or she!), click here and teach them a thing or two about chocolate - and I'll bet you'll get a smile.

FYI: Consuming milk while attempting to derive health benefits from dark chocolate will interfere with the absorption of antioxidants.

I Am Delighted!

... because the world is a beautiful place.

Insofar as we are inundated with talk about global warming, let's start concentrating on how beautiful the world still is and I believe will be for the lifetimes of our children. 

I have a dream. That dream brings me to a place of great beauty and incomprehensible joy and delight. 

Let us concentrate on these things and let us be in rapture.

What's for dinner?

Hawaiian fish is bountiful in its variety. There is something for everyone's tastes and you may not even know it exists yet!

One fish you might have never head of before is monchong. It is one of the most popular fish you can find in a restaurant (and is my favorite source of protein). It is light yet firm in its texture and has a wonderful flavor. Or how about Ono, Mahi Mahi or Opah? These are other fantastic options that you will find if you visit Maui or the other Hawaiian Islands.

Check back for next week's post about What's For Dinner!


Some of my favorite flowers - and aren't they incredible?!

Protea are beautiful flowers. Not necessarily fragrant, but they are rich in variety and color. Protea came from South Africa and have been said to originated over 300 million years ago - isn't that amazing?

Tuberose are extremely fragrant, along with gardenia, ginger and pikake (or jasmine). If you travel to Hawaii, you will find them for sale in abundance by street corner vendors, and also look for them in fresh floral arrangements such as lovely hand-made leis.

Plumeria (also called frangipani in Australia) is well-known for its beautiful aroma. It has a myriad of different colors and scents.

There are so many tropical flowering plants, each of them unique and magnificent. It is fun to keep learning about these splendid gifts of nature!
