So Dad and Mother have died, [ 1998 and 2011 ], Both of their children have retired, their 'Family' house sold by the court-after 'kleine Schwesterchen' and her husband protested the will; so what was I to do with all their letters, documents, pictures, music tapes, sacred records, sketches, calculations and other 'Family Heirlooms' that have been left behind.
I was Mother's 'Primary Care Giver' for the last (6) years of her life; the court [she died intestate] had given me a departure date, 'kleine schwesterchen' had no interest in helping, so what should I do? I just didn't have the heart to trash everything or as my ex-brother-n-law said: "strike a match;" so with my previous website as a model [2003-2010] I decided to try and build a 'Legacy' website that would be a 'Tribute' to Both Families and that I could hand over to my children and grandchildren.
SIDE-NOTE/SIDEBAR #1: A spin-off of starting this project is that I realized there are many, many individuals and families that are facing the same issues that I have faced; therefore, a natural 'Niche' for this website is the gathering, formulating and collating of documents, pictures, wills, funeral arrangements 'und so weiter,' [and so forth].
Additionally, as I approach the 'Late Fall and Early Winter-of-My-Life' I want to record some of my 'Faith-Walk' Experiences and some Memories from my Two Years in the Republic of VietNam from June, 1969-May, 1971 and to encourage my two children and Grand-hildren in their Christian Faith and their Heritage!

Now If You Want To Criticize Nori's Site, too-Consider the Following: Nori Evoy is the daughter of Dr. Ken Evoy, the creator and developer of SBI-SSI! When she was 14 while her family was vacationing she asked her Dad:
"Can I Build one of them website things-that you develop and sell-about our vacationing here in Anguilla and will you help me when I get stuck?"
Well now, the Evoy Family lives in Anguilla and Nori is about 23-24and has become an Icon on the island of Anguilla and makes enough income from her website endorsements to support herself and put herself through college."
As a line from the old movie "Flashdance" [ 1980's] said....
"Take Your Passion and Make it Happen?"
So what is Your Passion?
why not take that passion and build-not just a website-but an eCommerce Business like Nori has done-like I have had a taste of and what I have made as an 'avocation' [from the last two years-starting in 2014-Forward] As my Chief Retirement Vehicle? Remember, according to Sandy Botkin, Attorney, CPA, and former IRS Middle Manager:
The Very Best Deduction you can have is a part-time/ Home Based Business-Becoming a 'Solopreneur' and being an Internet Marketer Counts!
HINT NUMBER ONE:
"Don't throw anything away until you've had a chance to 'go through it all-' once you determine it hasn't been destroyed by time, insects or weather-even to the point of buying sturdy bookshelves and an 'on-site' storage room. The result was 39 (5") 3-Ringed Binders with Plastic Protector Sheets; now that I've started building this site, I just wish there was somebody in my family that would develop an interest in carrying this project forward, after I die and walk through the veil of this life into the next one.
Now this Storage Room is Completely Full; Now its time to get Ready to order Metal Shelves in order to Consolidate Space, cut-down some boxes, and do a little "Spring Cleaning"...
After returning to Houston on Labor Day, 2013, I moved into the Mariposa [55+] Apartment Complex [See Above Pictures] and one of the major attractions for me was the enclosed corridors [with breezeways at either end and in the middle of each wing] making the unit Ideal for walking on a Smooth Surface in all kinds of weather; One of the tools I used for losing 43 pounds in 2015! [More on that later]

Here is where it originates and how it is harvested-'The Old Fashioned Way-Hard Work!' Tongan Seaweed is used instead of Japanese-the other source of 'Fucoidan'-because Tongan Seaweed does not give an 'afterglow' like Japanese Seaweed might-because of the Nuclear Plant Accident(s).

My ex-Brother-n-Law, but still friend-meine kleine Schwesterchen divorced him-I didn't; recommended this product to me and at first, I was reluctant to add to my LIMU Regimen, but once started, I began to see and feel benefits IMMEDIATELY; I add to my Seaweed Cocktail and the Youngevity Tangerine 2.0 Minerals [in my opinion] puts the seaweed meal replacement shake on steroids and kicks the drink into 'Overdrive.' I drink one shaker [above] each morning. Remember, its the 'Fucoidan' that does the work, the seaweed is just the transport vehicle.
Please Remember, I do Not have an automobile or associated expenses; so I take the funds I'd spend on transportation and transfer to vitamins and minerals to protect my health; oh yes, since I am +70 years old, my public transportation around Houston is F-R-E-E !

Instead of Ordering LIMU [Fucoidan] and Blu Frog Separately, I am Now Ordering a Combo Package - see below; additionally, I have replaced Cayenne Pepper with Turmeric Curcumin...
