Quit Smoking and You’ll Get Healthier and Feel World’s Better!

This was inspired by a friend who was having difficulty quitting smoking. So I found these for her and thought I would share them all with the world too!

If 20 of you quit smoking as a result of these affirmations and helpful charts, but it was definitely worth posting.

If you have struggled with quitting smoking before take a couple of these images and save them and then put them on your smart device to look at or put on the front face as a wallpaper.

Ramona’s Alzheimer’s Disease Daily: July 29th, 2018 Edition

There are 65 contributors in today’s issue of Ramona’s Alzheimer’s Disease Daily. With The True Story of What Fuels my Fire to Fund the Cure

Mom, Ramona Le Pore, when she was 16 years old.

All Images were created and written by Paulette Le Pore Motzko from old photos that I treasure more than you’ll ever know.

Mom always taught me this important fact in life to value people first and things second. Sadly some never understand that simple guide in life, like my ex.

I am so happy I put mom’s needs first and made sure she had love and the homemade meals I would especially make for her.

That TIME we shared together involved a lot more than eating, and the most important thing about it was that we spent TIME TOGETHER. She knew that I put tons of love and TLC into each meal, and was willing to make her literally anything . God knows how many meals she made for me as a kid and through my life!

Mom took this photo of me in my parent’s old duplex which is now been liquidated. Dad bought the place with me in mind years ago when I was single and designed the kitchen for me- laying the tile countertops himself and putting a really pretty wood shelf above the sink that exists only in pictures now.

That was the most special room in their place, because of all the work he put into it.


It was really easy to please mom because she was so appreciative of everything you did for her.

The best of what I could afford, which wasn’t much compared to my siblings, who didn’t have the big picture view I did and were quick to judge me, but were doing nothing until I pointed out I wasnt her only “child”, and they were much older than I with more financial resources.

I was the only one at times who thought things that way.

She begged me to buy cigarettes for her and I never wanted to be responsible for contributing to her acquiring a lung cancer or a God forsaken disease. She had enough she was dealing with trying to care for my crippled father who made almost daily hospital trips.

I didn’t want regrets but great memories. She was diagnosed with COPD later in her life and I’m so happy that I wasn’t the one buying cigarettes!

I stood up to people who were and basically told them “what are you doing trying to kill her faster!?”

What I said wasn’t popular, but I really didn’t give a crap. Sometimes people’s perspective is messed up and I would not say my adult siblings were not thr triple winners I speak of, but the opposite based on decisions they made in regards to mom, dad and I.

I don’t hold grudges but I also don’t want drama or disfunction in my life and I only associate with kind, compassionate, empathetic people, of which they proved they were not.

Why do I tell you all this?

It is cathartic for me, but I am not feeling sorry for myself but really telling a true story about values, ethics, the value of human beings and their worth, and saying it’s o.k. to not associate with family who are less than kind.

Also, if you are lucky enough to still have parents who are alive and well, count your blessings 3 times.

If they are disabled, have dementia or were diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, then learn everything you can about it, and do everything you can from it taking all your family member’s life quality away.

Make the most of now and make each moment the most special you can, as one day it will be a stellar memory like mine are.

That’s why I want to champion the cause of finding the CURE for it and why I named the this newsletter after Mom but I was still taking care of her and she never knew about it. She didn’t have to know. The most important thing was I knew about it and when this is successful and it’s monetized which I’m working on, it will be able to accept tax deductible donations which will go towards finding that cure.

Not just find the cure but fund it with a monitored version of this informational newsletter.

I contacted the Bill Gates Foundation about my projects in what I’m doing and I’m not done contacting them. He’s recently donated 10 million dollars to that particular cause and he made that public in Forbes Magazine last October 2017. His father Bill Gates Senior was diagnosed and he has a huge vested interest in finding the cure like I do.

I’m so happy that I said what I said because people quit buying her cigarettes after that and instead spending time with her like I told them to.

Time is the most valuable thing you will ever have or give anyone.

Remember that because all of our time here is short-lived. Say and do the things you want now; don’t wait for some mystical day in the future that may never come.

“We Will Dance” by Steven Curtis Chapman (One of the prettiest love songs I’ve ever heard!)

I can’t to make the words to that song come true with someone really special.

We will dance when the sun is shining…

We will dance through the pouring rain…

When the gentle breeze becomes a hurricane…

And I will take your hand and hold you close to me and we will dance.

You get enough weird weather in Nevada, so you’d take this song literally! 🙂

As another thunderstorm moves through Las Vegas, I decided to clean my cabinets put and organize my kitchen, putting things where it’s the most functional and pleasing to my eyes.

The weather people should just report “more lousy weather!” What most of them tell you is it really true anyway so I don’t know why people watch the weather report. And more accurate ways to just use something like WeatherBug and set it to report the weather every 15 minutes to 30 minutes so you can see where the GPS exactly what the weather is like right on your street!

You can’t really plan anything in this town because the weather changes every 30 minutes and I’m not kidding you!

Home listening to my tunes on my Bluetooth speakers while I watch the storm move in through my picture window.

May you be very blessed today, no matter what you are doing.

Rich Dad Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money – That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! (Unabridged)

I will forever look at the world differently thanks to this phenomenal book.

Whether you get it at the library, or you buy it or you listen to the audible version you will want to sit and take notes while you listen to it as I did because you want to refer back to the things he says over and over. When you put the points that you learn in this book into action, your life will completely change, that’s a fact.

If I could put into two words what this book did for me, I would say “Financial Enlightenment”, sums it up.

Always take advice from smart people who done well in life and avoid advice from people who have not. After all, all advice is not created equal, needless to say. Always consider the source of where the advice is coming from and then look at the person closely.

Every blade of grass has an angel bending over it saying, “Grow grow.” – The Talmud

I was reading some past issues of the inspiring Guideposts magazine called “Angels on Earth” yesterday and today, which belonged to my mother and now belong to me forever and close to my heart.

Mom was a very spiritual lady and very deep feeling and I knew things about her that really nobody ever knew because they never took the time to ask.

That was their loss and my gain in terms of wisdom and compassion and understanding.

I ran onto a page that had the quote from The Talmud that I included as the title of this story; it really spoke to me as I have always felt an interconnectedness with nature, the ocean, flowers, trees, and all growing things.

I’ve always been connected to nature and plants which is why I miss Southern California so much. Nature abounds everywhere: colorful farmers markets, oceans full of serenity and peacr, delicate flowers that bloom all year long, and the heaven-on-earth, temperate weather. You wonder why people want to live there- it’s nicer there than here that’s for sure, it’s just not as affordable right NOW. I am hoping I will once again return there to my southern California home.

Below the image from the magazine that went with the beautiful quote.

Here is another memorable, inspiring quote this time from

C. S. Lewis….

” All day I have been tossed and whirled in a preposterous happiness. Was it an elf in the blood?

Or a bird in the brain?

Or even part of the cloudily crested,

50-league-long, loud, uplifted wave of

a journeying Angel’s Transit roaring over and through my heart?

Fan the flames of passion and creativity and go where you get inspired to create. It does your soul and body good.- Paulette L. Motzko

Images of a sparkling blue sequined fan by Paulette Motzko, PLM Studios, Copyright July 2018.

I was cleaning off my antique roll top desk one evening and I found my old sequined fan that I got when I went to a quinceanera when I first moved here in Las Vegas. Still good after all these years, and still keeps me cool after all these years! You better believe I’ll use it too-when it’s 111 degrees outside!

I got a and I was wide awake at 9:30 p.m. so I very spontaneously went to one of my favorite places the Texas Station, and saw my many friends who work all over the place there.

There places in this world that I go and every time I go there I mean someone extraordinary.

I don’t understand it but then again I don’t have to I just go with what works and keep doing it over and over again.

Where are some of your favorite places that you go to be inspired, that are blessed in your book of life?

I hope I hear from some of you reading this and that you’ll take the time to write in the comment box some of your places where creativity abounds and seems to be waiting around in the air.

Watch “6 Ways To Use Leftover Rice” on YouTube

The 6 master recipes in this well done video are so great and so versatile that I not only shared it on my cooking site, that was the start of all my dozen blogs, but I’m sharing it with all my readers here because they are so family friendly, budget friendly and versatile.

In place of the ground beef in one of the recipes you can also add ground chicken or ground turkey or whatever kind of meat you like, or no meat at all and then just add in something else you like.

Cooking is all about being creative and letting your kitchen be your own special “culinary canvas” to create “wonderful flavors” that are memorable and unique to yourself and your own personal taste.

“I Need a Silent Night Amy Grant Lyrics” (I know it’s not Christmas but we all could use a silent night!)

Whoever wrote the lyrics to this gorgeous song really outdid themselves. Amidst all the news stories that swirl around the globe each day, I think we all could use a little “Peace on Earth” and I hope the you find it….. even if it’s simply in your heart or in your soul.

Written and compiled by Paulette Motzko.

I hope our world one day becomes a more peaceful place to live.

Have a peaceful Silent Night in July. Why not?

I know I shared this beautiful song around Christmas last year, but I couldn’t resist tonight as a storm blows in to Las Vegas and the winds are blowing, and my sinuses are acting up because of it.

With my Sleepytime tea by my side, and love in my heart to yours, I wish you all peace Wherever You Are.

Non toxic Eco-Friendly Cheap Dishwasher Detergent Made with Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soap (Updated JULY 19, 2018)

  • 1/2 cup Dr. Bronner’s Unscented Liquid Castile Soap.

(I use the unscented variety so I can scent it any way I want using essential oils derive from natural sources. I use it on my hair and I dilute to wash my hands and body and you can use it for a whole variety of other things like even laundry. I just don’t know the proportions yet, but I will.

This product has been around for many many years and is all derived from natural sources and is eco-friendly.

Since it’s derived from cleaners like olive oil you’ll notice that your hands will feel softer when you use it; I did immediately 2 years ago.

You can use just a tiny bit of this and it’s concentrated so you can make a whole lot of it with one bottle.

I noticed it when I wash my hands my ring sparkles more than it did before I wash them! That means it is not putting any kind of weird film on your skin or body or anything else, and the cleaners work so well that it has the ability of cleaning and rinsing off completely.)

  • 1/4 cup spring water
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 3 drops tea tree oil acts like an antibacterial agent
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar

Simply mix all ingredients in a quart-size mason jar and use 2 tablespoons of your dishwasher and I found the best results came from eliminating the baking soda or Borax in the bottom of your dishwasher instead put one cup of distilled white vinegar and it acts as a cleaning agent, Degreaser and helps cut any soap film.

The tea tree oil acts like an antibacterial and kills germs.
