Lava Shoot by Boat!

October 13, 2016:  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 😮

The Answer… “Very little sleep!” 😐 …

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


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……


There is a New LOVE in HIS Life…

Taxes are filed and birthdays are over. … I knew it was coming. … 🙁 I suppose it would have been too much to hope for it to wait until after our Anniversary? …

He went out with her on Saturday night for a stroll along the beach and a nice, colorful sunset! He has put me on notice that he will be spending most of Sunday night with her as well. 🙁

She is a 60D! (only a part of the reason he hooked up with HER)… :-O His other interest was only a 7D. 😐 But I haven’t LOST to the “competition”, yet!!!!… Even……


WOW!!!!!

Michelle, my friend, Thank You for sharing this video! 🙂

When a Car wants more attention…

Thursday, August 12, 2010: Work today from 7:35am to 2:05pm.

By 2:45pm: driving to Kona on a partially routine shopping trip and to pick up an item that had been back-ordered.

By 6:45pm: All items checked off the to-do list in quick order and I begin the drive back home…

Approaching the airport intersection, my car displays a well overheated status…I was glad airport was the next turn, and I dive into the first location that seemed to make sense – the Rental Return lots on approach to the airport.

I owe a great big Mahalo to the Alamo rental-return employees! Theirs was the first lot that looked inviting……


Bubbles from the Deep!

Starfish Date 20100711.0900 D1: Surf Forecast called for choppy conditions on both East and West sides of Hawai’i today. We decided to go for a drive to check out Diving conditions at End of Road Puako. It was Fantastic!!!!!

It was in just the right position to be sheltered from the brunt of the wind, surf and surge. Although the water wasn’t as clear as we have seen it, it was better by far than I was expecting. Almost no noticeable surge either, unless you held still enough for a few minutes and made conscious note of it.

We decided to go South today, and it turned……


Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary Ocean Count…

What an awesome way to go whale watching!!!! Okay. So…it was quite early to get up on a Saturday; but it was sooooo worth it! Just after New Year’s, Andy registered us to participate in the 2010 Santuary Ocean Count on January 30, coordinated by the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary. Check out the many links and bushel loads of information that they provide on their site.

“Bright” and EARLY on Saturday morning, January 30, we met the group at Kawaihae harbor (about 7:00am) and consolidated some vehicles then proceeded to the site that we signed up on for the Ocean Count. The site……
