New York, New York. So great they named it twice.

I’ve been working on a new Grandma book. My Grandma could do anything in New York which should be available shortly.

I’m going to be posting a few of the illustrations from the book and if anyone has some feedback, it would be appreciated.

I love NYC and all it has to offer. This book was so much fun to write. I worked with a different artist to help with the illustrations and I just love how she has interpreted my sketches. Very colorful and playful. We should be going to press soon and the epub version should be available at the end of September with the printed book possibly around Thanksgiving. I’ll keep everyone posted.

Braving the Wild to Get….The Shot!

Photo of 2 bears in a diorama

That’s right, I took this photo in the wild. The wild of the Denver Natural History Museum. I had to dodge strollers, Grandmas chasing toddlers and school groups (not easy). Luckily these bears stood motionless for me (being stuffed will do that). I tried to sneak up as close as I could,but then my head hit the glass of the diorama. No worries, I’m OK.

On a serious note, the day was exceptional. I highly recommend the Denver Natural History Museum to anyone in close proximity to Denver. Great exhibits, IMAX shows and even the lunch was great (no, I don’t work for the Museum).

Check out my book “My Grandma Could do Anything in the Rocky Mountains” for some fun ways Grandma experiences the outdoors.

This is a wonderful book for any Tutu (Grandma).

Nancy H.—Hawaii, The Big Island

What a refreshing and fun book! You just have to chuckle at the cute drawings. It really captures the joy of being a grandma and uniquely gets that message across to keiki (“children” in Hawaiian).

Pat P.—Today’s Little People, Honolulu, Hawaii

A great way for your keiki to remember Grandma and Hawaii.

Wailea sunsets are very special as anyone who has witnessed will attest. There is a certain respectful silence and tranquility that surrounds the lucky viewers. Cameras go up and whispers of appreciation can be heard. Gratitude is the word of the evening.

Maui Ocean Center-Aloha to Fun and Learning

Add a Comment

I’ve visited the Maui Ocean Center many times on my trips to Maui. Everytime I go, I see and experience something new and exciting.

The video above gives a brief explanation on animal life in the oceans around Maui. Just in case you can’t snorkel or dive to see these animals first hand, this video will give you a ringside seat without getting wet or having to put on sunscreen. Relax and enjoy fun facts on the following: Hammer Head Sharks,Frogfish,Tiger Sharks,Parrot Fish, White Tip Reef Sharks, Moray Eels,Grey Reef Sharks and Black Tip Reef Sharks.

My kids really enjoyed their visits, I’m sure yours will too.

Walt Disney—American Genius!

Photo of the Disney Family Museum building in San Francisco

Our family visit at the Walt Disney Family Museum at the Presido in San Francisco was a very pleasant surprise. It was perfectly set up for educating the fans about the life and accomplishments of Walt Disney.

The curators of the museum limit the number of people entering at one time, so you don’t get that walking down Disneyland Main Street on Christmas Day feeling. The guests are taken on a journey starting with Disney’s youth and ending with his untimely death at 65. We are informed through photos, letters, recordings, artifacts, displays and film. I personally find his early years of the most interest. These are the years that really shape the engine of the individual. The stories can be delightful tales or harsh realities, or as in the case with Disney (like most people), both. Either way these experiences are the social DNA that produces the fruits of the individual.

The museum continues chronicling the ups and downs (mostly ups) of his many accomplishments and challenges. I was exhausted just reading about them, let alone what it must have been like doing them. Looking at who the museum visitors were was just as fascinating. I heard many foreign languages, I saw people of all ages and cultural backgrounds. I even saw a Goth kid admiring the exhibit (I think Minnie wore black lipstick).  His art truly transcended all barriers.

I don’t recommend the museum for the very young. It is more of an educational experience than an entertainment experience (no rides…darn it!).

It amazes me that the world is still so enamored with Walt Disney. I’m surprised planet earth has not sprouted Mickey ears. Actually, I don’t think anyone would mind… (maybe Donald).
