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……


Best Buckle-Up Ad EVER

I first posted this to my blog on May 1, 2010; and I am moving it upfront in my blog again because it has such a needed message! 🙂

After watching this video, I agreed wholeheartedly with the Subject title of this message when it was sent to me by my sister, Darcy!

The explanation read as follows:

This is the new “wear your seatbelt” ad the UK is doing – started by some guy not hired to do it, but because the cause is important to him, he came up with this idea, and now it’s being hailed across the world as a beautiful’ commercial. …

Please Do Wear your……


Poor Sad Mac…

I love my MacBook; however, recently I found a receipt that reminded me that even a Mac wants some extra attention sometimes. Especially, with all the possible threats out there in cyberspace. 😐

On Thursday, June 23, 2013, my MacBook encountered a file on its hard drive that was too confusing for it to sort out so it subsequently decided not to boot. I remember I investigated it long into the night then decided to take it to see a Mac Doctor at Mac Made Easy on June 24, 2013, for a ‘Physical Exam’!

During data backup, a file was discovered (title was something like …~.gif) that the……

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. 😡

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. 😐

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! 😀


Island of Hawai’i Hurricane News from the “Cradle”

Update For my Family & Friends!

While still a bit sensationalized by the media but accurate for large areas of the Island of Hawai’i, forces of Hurricane Iselle rolled over The Big Island with varying degrees of damage. (Oh, NBC; please take note from ABC and call the Island of Hawai’i, “The Big Island” or “The Island of Hawai’i“; not “the main Island“) 😉

We received much stronger winds than our usual, and powerful gusts were pushed through Waikoloa with force! But in our little sheltered “cradle”, we had no major issues unlike those on the East, South, and North areas of the Island.

I understand that Kona is now getting quite a……
