Why is my battery going dead?
The other day, one of my customers called to tell me that her car battery kept going dead... but she said she recently tested the battery and found it to be good. How can that be? There are a number of possibilities.... More »

Are You Safe From A Cyber Attack?
I always enjoy reading the "what happened in history" emails I get about once a month, so I was reminded that September had a profound affect on the way we treat our personal technology. More »

Pause for Menopause
Rated 5.0 Stars
For quite some time now, I've felt pretty darn smug. Smug about the fact that although I'm now closer to 50 than 40, I was taking no medications. More »

Emergency Foods Recipes
Rated 5.0 Stars
After last month scare with the 2 hurricanes (Iselle and Julio) headed for Hawaii I started thinking about how to prepare the foods in my emergency stash. How would one make tasty and nutritional meals out of a bunch of canned goods in the absence of electricity? More »

Micro Moves of a Correct Backswing
Rated 4.7 Stars
For many amateur golfers, the flaws start early on in their backswings and then a great downswing becomes a dream or a journey of compensations. Many movements that we'd like to do on the downswing are impossible due to stretch shorten cycles or actions/reactions that we've triggered off in the backswing. Thus, no matter how hard you try...

Planting Seeds
Rated 5.0 Stars
Something happened this month that inspired me to switch topics and talk about something that applies to art in general. The road of an artist, whether they are a photographer, a sculptor, or a painter, is a long one with ups and downs. I have been at many a venue where the financial payoff end of art wasn't happening.

The Patience of Dragons
Rated 5.0 Stars
People often ask what makes for a good photographer. Is it one's equipment? Is it one's skill? In my experience, the two things that have served me best in photography are patience and luck. One of these you can improve upon, the other one only to a lesser degree. More »

Hawaiian 101 - Poi
Rated 5.0 Stars
My husband and I are remodeling the kitchen in my grandparent's home, which we now occupy. Both of our `ohana are noted for fine cooks, and both of us grew up spending a lot of time in the kitchen. This means that many of our suppertime conversations revolve around food, food preparation, growing food, hunting food, buying food, storing, preserving, and presenting food, and around kitchen and dining room design.

The Power of the Group
It's almost 6 a.m. at Ala Moana Beach Park's Magic Island. I can see Venus, still bright in the early morning sky, as I roll my back on a foam cylinder alongside a group of women ages 25 to 70. We are warming up before starting an hour-long boot camp class of sprints, squats, lifts, jumps, crunches, and curls led by our trainer Dawn Quiocho, affectionately known as "Buff Mama." More »

Chance Encounters
Rated 4.0 Stars
I've been seeing a lot about the dolphin cull in Taiji, Japan in the news these days. More accurately, I've been seeing a lot about it in my newsfeed on Facebook. I remember first reading about it way back in the 80s in National Geographic and have heard news reports from time to time on it. More »

I’d walk a million miles for one of your smiles my CES geek (better yet for one of your nifty new gadgets!)
If you were to ask what word(s) would most represent the 2012 CES, I'd say "BIG", "SMART" and perhaps, "CONNECTED" and just to cover all the bases, "GREEN". It's been a huge show and the number of attendees I keep hearing is 160,000. Definitely a crowd, especially when you're trying to get close to a gadget to see how it works... More »

Smart, Safe, Swift and Fun Computing
Smart, Safe, Swift and Fun. Sound like you? If not, why? Now that I have your attention, what am I talking about? Well, I keep getting the same questions about most of these topics, one way or another, so I decided I would briefly comment on them before getting to the fun stuff. More »

And... I'm spent! Ho, for you guys, I travel the globe (State actually) and boy are my arms tired. Yeah, bad joke. But seriously, I do this to bring all ya'll the best in Hawaii's eats. You're welcome! ;P I actually don't mind it at all though. Me loves to eat, travel, take photos and write, so as you can guess, this combination is right up my alley.

Surprise Cookies
I love surprises. The littlest, simplest things easily make me jump for joy and break out in song. An extra shot of espresso from my barista, a good book, and even ridiculous things, like getting a new BPA-free water bottle from Target or exploring Bed, Bath and Beyond for the first time. So you can imagine my delight when I saw these More »
