IT’S BIRTHDAY TIME
For all the ‘July’ birthdays, here is the BEATLES birthday rendition for us.
Plus a special Blue Mountain birthday “Celebration” for me and YOU.
My family did not celebrate birthdays when we grew up.
Interestingly, this is a recent occurrence in North America.
Read about the strange history of birthday celebrations.

KIDS CAMP COOKIE WORKSHOP
We served two groups of 30+ kids; each child received 2 cookies each.
I picked a broken butterfly cookie and named her Ms July before I ate it.
Cookie coloring kits are available at Costco stores or there are online options such as BySweetness.com.
I CAME, I SAW, I FORGOT
LOL (laughing out loud) when I read this for the first time because it’s happened to me.
We all need a little grace and humor in those moments of forgetfulness.
There are three stages for memory: encoding, storage, and retrieval.
Absentmindedness is characterized by low attention level and distractedness.
However, a word of caution, too little sleep or too much sleep affects memory.
Here are some tips for dealing with forgetfulness: learn a new skill, stay active, spend time with family and friends, volunteer, and limit alcohol consumption.
KIMO’S HAWAIIAN RULES
Love this Kimo’s t-shirt worn by Ron Leenstra to church:
Never judge a day by the weather.
The best things in life aren’t things.
Tell the truth – there’s less to remember.
Speak softly and wear a loud shirt.
Goals are deceptive – the unaimed arrow never misses.
He who dies with the most toys – still dies.
Age is relative – when you’re over the hill, you pick up speed.
There are 2 ways to be rich – make more or desire less.
Beauty is internal – looks mean nothing.
No rain – no rainbows.
WHY INVEST IN REAL ESTATE?
Real Estate Leverage
Leverage is the use of various financial instruments or borrowed capital (e.g., debt) to increase an investment’s potential return. A 20% down payment on a mortgage, for example, gets you 100% of the house you want to buy—that’s leverage. Because real estate is a tangible asset and one that can serve as collateral, financing is readily available.
