Today, I have two husbands. Dan just finished writing a new book entitled "The Edge of Madness." The story is like future science fiction, and he wrote it under one of his author pseudonyms, Raymond Gaynor. He uses this name for thrillers and has published two already: TOTAL MELTDOWN (Borgo/Wildside 2009) with William Maltese, and QUANTUM DEATH (Savant 2017) with A. G. Hayes. His new story begins where TOTAL MELTDOWN ends; namely the downsizing of the USA to form a much smaller NewAmerica, mu...

Betty and I are about to return to our home in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA after our yearly 14 day vacation. It all began towards the end of April, when we jumped aboard the Celebrity Eclipse for a cruise around Maui and Big Island, and then five days at sea traveling to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Three days there and it's back to Honolulu. 

This is our fifth cruise and our first with Celebrity. Our first four were with Carnaval from Los Angeles or San Diego to Mexico, and our fifth was wi...

Watching Disney's "Frozen" reminds us that somewhere in the world, there's more snow than just shave ice in a bowl. Shave ice is Hawaii's way of remembering what winter is like elsewhere. In fact, my favorite winter (i.e. shave ice) is Waialua dark chocolate flavor. Yumm. Now that's what I call winter.

Being originally from Alaska, I'm often asked why I moved to Hawaii. Sunshine, tradewinds, sweet smelling flowers, lots of great ballroom and latin dancing. I'm equally often asked if I miss Al...

Dan and I have been busy almost one month. We were surprised that we haven't blogged for one month. During the month, however, we returned to dancing, now two days a week! It was so fun dancing again. I'm glad Dan is able to dance again. For the past three years, I have been helping Dan to recover without surgery. The hours of massage and muscle releasing are paying off finally.

When we went to dancing, everyone we knew asked us what happened. We are so happy to be dancing again.

The Legend of Studio 54

Posted by Betty and Dan on Thursday, July 11, 2013, In : Dan's Blogs 
Our last time in Las Vegas (yeh, everyone who's anyone goes to Las Vegas at least once from Honolulu), we made it a priority to stop and go dancing at the MGM Grand's albeit watered down version of the famous Studio 54. I must admit right at the beginning that neither of us ever had the opportunity of going to the original in the Big Apple. So, instead we danced our hearts out all evening to Disco '70 music and partied until the wee hours just as if we'd been at the "real" Studio 54 in the 70...

Good evening!  happy Father's Day!

My husband and I recently enjoy watching Bollywood movies.  According to wikipedia, "Bollywood is the informal term popularly used for the Hindi-language film industry based in Mumbai (Bombay), Maharashtra, India".

We watched three Bollywood movies so far.  They are dancing and love stories.  Three stories based on what love is, 

We watched "Dil To Pagal Hai", dancing and love story.  What is true love?  The story is dancing and love and happy end.
The dancing
