    Think I’ll send this “rant” to Washington. Whatcha think? Do you know why a banana is like a politician? They come in and first they’re green; then they turn yellow; and then they’re rotten! I also think Congress members should wear uniforms, you know, like NASCAR drivers, so we could identify their corporate sponsors! … and now some LOLs from my favorite Phyllis D.

    Aloha, good friends! Howze this for an appropriate beginner? I like political jokes, unless they get elected! Let’s get down to business. What is really important? Climate change, undernourished and undereducated children, domestic violence and equal rights. So now let’s put all the politics in the trash can where they belong. Yep, and add a few politicians just for flavor! LOLs … LOLs.

    When you are in need of personal care, it can be very reassuring to have family there to help make difficult decisions, supporting you through your journey while ensuring that you are given high-quality care.

    Aloha, friends and family! Yep, you know how this is going to begin, so let’s get going! Did you get Mike Pence’s galling amnesia? Yep, he made no apologies during the tense debate! Also, what did you think about Pence’s fantasy running mate. His Donald Trump bore little resemblance to reality! Think about it. Are you laughing yet? OK, just one more. Trump has a new nickname: Flip Flop Trump. He has changed his political party five (yes, that is five) times between 1999 and 2012! Google it! … LOL. And remember, everyone has a right to be stupid. Politicians just abuse the privilege!

    Bet you all think I am going to “rant” about the Presidential debate. Nope, wrong! We’re beginning today with the business of today: A little girl named Suzy was standing on the sidewalk in front of her home with a basket by her feet. In her hand was a sign: “Free Kittens!” Suddenly a black limo stops by the curb and a tall grinning man gets out. “Hi there, little girl. I’m Donald Trump. What do you have in that basket?” he asked. “Cute little kittens!” little Suzy replied. “How old are they?” Trump asks. Suzy replies, “They’re so young their eyes aren’t even open yet.” “And what kind of kittens are they?” “Republicans,” answered Suzy with a smile. Trump naturally was delighted. He returned to his limo and called his PR chief and told him about the little girl and the kittens. Recognizing the perfect photo-op, the two men agreed that Trump should return the next day with the full media! So, the next day Suzy was standing on the sidewalk with her basket and sign: “Free Kittens!” Suddenly another motorcade pulled up, followed by vans from ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX and CNN. After cameras and audio equipment were set up, Trump walked over to Suzy. “Hello again,” he said. “I’d love it if you would tell all my friends out there what kind of kittens you’re giving away.” “Yes sir,” Suzy said, “They’re Democrats!” Taken by surprise, Trump stammered, “But … but yesterday, you said they were Republicans!” Little Suzy smiled and said, “I know, but today, they have their eyes open!” …no better rant!

    Guess many of you are still struggling with a decision about who you’ll vote for, yes, for what else but President? Let me make it easy for you: Take a favorite old antique coin and just flip it! If it lands on “heads,” well that is obvious. Who has the craziest hairdos on his head? Now, if it lands on tails, is that really “tails” or “tales?” Guess we know who has told some of the best tales. OK, friends, your work is cut out for you. If you don’t like the first flip, then you do best two out of three! Best of luck to you and have some “calming juice” very close by, or some LOLs will work!

    Aloha my friends … OK, let’s get the political stuff out of the way! A man is sitting in a surgeon’s office across the desk from him. The surgeon says, “This surgery could substantially extend your life, so you may want to wait to make your final decision until after the election!” Now, is that good advice or not?

    Getting a quick look at way too many e-mails this morning, one of them just grabbed my attention: “Fat-Burning Chocolate Recipe.” Oh yes, that was a real “come-on.” So, if my column is a bit late it is because I am busy in the kitchen creating what sounds like a real scam! I’ll let you know next week if it is working. Now on to my business of the day … LOLs!

    Love and marriage. Try to separate them; it’s an illusion. Frank Sinatra first sang these profound words in 1955 and their meaning rings truer than ever when one partner in a marriage requires care. When it comes to the point that they can no longer contribute to the health of the relationship like they used to, the binding gel that keeps the relationship strong comes from a solid foundation of love. If you are a spousal caregiver, this scenario may feel uniquely yours, yet it is more common that you may realize.

    Rants? Of course! Trump continues to refuse to release his tax returns and the IRS doesn’t care. What is he trying to hide? Tyra Banks will be teaching a spring course at Stanford Business School on building your personal brand! (D. Trump was too busy.) And I bet you didn’t know she has an MBA from Harvard Business School! One more rant? Burkini backlash? Will it keep France French? Enough said, and on to your therapy!
