Loser of the Day Award

So I am walking back from lunch along Kapiolani Boulevard when I hear someone say, "Behind you!"



My first inclination is to stop and turn around, but since I don't recognize the voice and I am not sure what "behind you" is supposed to be telling me, I simply go toward the nearest edge of the sidewalk (in this case, the left) and continue walking.



Next thing I know, this older guy on his bicycle comes up on my right repeating, " Behind you!" and this time adding, " what are… Continue

The Vog and Tutu Pele

Just last month, Halema`uma`u erupted with all of the fury of, well, a fire goddess. Breaching the surface for the first time in decades at the site that has been a center piece of the area and the National Park for decades, Tutu Pele cast forth ash and fire and sulfur dioxide.

Aloha to Aloha

It is with mixed feelings that I bid a fond aloha to Aloha Airlines.



As everyone here in Hawaii is aware, Aloha Airlines is no more. At least not the passenger service part that flew the Hawaiian skies for the past 60 years. All that remains now is the cargo service and a host of memories, good and bad.



I have a couple of friends who were working for Aloha and for them I am sorry. The one bright spot is that there has never been a better time to be looking for a job in… Continue

Oldie but a goodie

Okay, well, this is not a usual blog posting, but I thought you might enjoy it...





When NASA was preparing for the Apollo project, they did some astronaut training on a Navajo Indian Reservation. One day a Navajo elder and his son were herding sheep and came across the space crew. The old man, who only spoke Navajo, asked a question, to which his son translated. "What are the guys in the big suits doing?" A member of the crew said they were practicing for their trip to the moon.… Continue
