My experiences on the Islands…


Lava Shoot by Boat!

October 13, 2016: ย Site Seeing by Boat – An Excellent way to view the Lava at its newest Ocean entry!

The night before; “I’m setting the alarm clock early enough to leave for Hilo by what time?” was my slow, incredulous question. When the answer was, “2:00 o’clock am,” I took a long pause to consider what that would mean for me ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

The Answer… “Very little sleep!” ๐Ÿ˜ …

Then I thought, “Wait, Andy will be driving. I can sleep on the way!” And I Did! ๐Ÿ˜€ “To the Flow by Sea”, Andy’s recount of this drive to Hilo and beyond.


Grow up? Why?

The laws of physics and nature require me to mature; but I have seen no where that it is either express or written that I have to Grow Up ๐Ÿ˜‰

Happy Play Times To You! ๐Ÿ˜€

In November 2008, I experienced a ‘wild hair’ and decided to learn some Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) Web Design for a Weblog! Now. If you know me … you KNOW that I HATE programming even though I can usually puzzle it out; but some how I have taken new interest in Web Design since I started my first Blog on Xanga and after seeing what was possible from viewing AND reading the posts……

Same Blog, Different Tool!

Hello Family, Friends, and Visitors!

Yep, I am migrating my Blog from my Previous Software (PS) to WordPress. My PS had failed to save my works-in-progress WAY too many times. ๐Ÿ˜ก

I have abandoned it now and use it to get the transfers to WordPress accurate.

You have probably noticed (or will notice, soon) that my old Blog is somewhat “interesting” now (or you get forwarded automatically).

When my account was updated to work with WordPress, something in my PS did not like the change. ๐Ÿ˜

Result: Some miscellaneous characters; and most important, it will not let me post, edit, delete or even access my admin pages.

My new Blog URL is……


Tag along on an AWESOME dive with us…

Mark is one of several regulars to our dive parties.

He has put together another great video of diving adventures aboard the Aqua Safari around the Big Island!

This dive was on August 17, 2014. A Nitrox Dive – special certification required.

It is a special treat for me to watch these videos, especially on the dives that I was unable to take part in. Thank You Mark! ๐Ÿ˜€
