Things I learned on the way to Hawai'i and back

Aloha and Mohalo

It's amazing what a few days in Paradise (and the trip to and from) will teach you. My first time in Hawai'i and I learned this..

* If you put 2 vowels back to back..and they do that ALOT in Hawai'i need to put the apostrophe in. Wheel of Fortune has been doing this WRONG for quite a while. 

* Gas Prices  range from 4.09 to 4.26 but the real sticker shock came when we went shopping for half and half for our morning coffees--5.19 for a quart--YIKES! 

* President Barack Obama went to a high school within walking distance of Hilo Hatties,(the store of Hawaii although I doubt Michele does much of her shopping there)  The harbor where the "3 hour tour" on Gilligan's Island began, and dozens of scenes for the new and old HAWAII 5-0 . His name was Barry in High School and he went to the same high school that John Travolta's wife Kelly Preston went to.

* If someone offers you a LOCO MOCO--take them up on the offer..they're usually good and good for breakfast.

* More than 2 dozen movies and tv shows have been shot at the nature reserve/ beach  mentioned in the Beach Boys SURFIN USA " Waimea Bay" 

* The last time Wisconsin won the NCAA Basketball Championship was about 8 months before the attack on Pearl Harbor.

    He’d been sinning since you were playing with Barbie and Ken, and you can’t change a player’s game in the ninth inning. ugg boots clearance sale Just when everyone assumed Jay put his pimping aside, found his match and became a father tangible proof of trouble in paradise emerged. It’s the kind of stuff that sells magazines and gives Tyler Perry fodder for his next movie. That’s a tale as old as time, and it’s so reliably bankable that people stopped caring if it’s actually true. ugg classic short clearance But what no one seems to be talking about is how this is a lose-lose situation.
