Hands On...


The Petting Zoo at the Hawai'i Farm Fair...

Safety...


I try to teach my boys to be safe drivers. Not that they are driving yet. The other day, I was driving through an intersection when a car drove through the red light. Fortunately, I was alert and able to slam on my brakes and avoid smashing right into the driver's side of the other car. A woman was obliviously talking on her cell phone and ran right through the light. I wasn't speeding but I could have easily killed her by smashing into the driver's side of her compact car. I was going to conduct a citizen's arrest but figured I might get pepper spray in the face. So I let her go...

Now I drive around with my camera taking pictures of other drivers distracted while driving to gather evidence...

Point Panic was busy tonight. A beautiful almost full moon. A smattering of stars. Some brave night divers in the water with their flashlights. Nice waves. Leahi in the background. Cool breezes. Lots of spirits. I couldn't ask for anything more beautiful...

Farm Fair...



We stopped by the Farm Fair this morning. It was full of people, plants, produce, animals and smells...
