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 »

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 »

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.

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...

To Be Green or Not to Be Green? Part 2
Continuing on from my last article on solar water heating and being green, this article will be the first article of generating your own electrical power. There are a few ways to generate your own power, for example, wind, thermal transfer/steam generator, wave energy, hydro and photovoltaic (PV). However some of the choices are only economical for businesses or a group of homes who may want to share a system. More »

Tinman Tips - A First Timer's Guide to Tinman Success
Rated 4.0 Stars
Late last month, your boy manned up and checked yet another item off the ol' "bucket list": Compete in the Hawaii Tinman. On Sunday, July 26th, the 2009 Tinman Triathlon was in full effect and, bright eyed and bushy tailed, I was there yo.

The Tesla Model S
Rated 5.0 Stars
My dear friend Jack recently took ownership of a Tesla Model S. In case you aren't familiar with the car, it's a plug-in electric vehicle. But to only describe it as that does the car severe injustice. This is not your uncle's Nissan Leaf. The Tesla was built to compete with the BMW 5-series. Yes, we are talking premium machines.

Tasty Farm Tours on Maui
Rated 5.0 Stars
Once you escape the picture-perfect resort areas of Ka'anapali and Wailea, Maui unwinds in vast expanses of dry kiawe bush, lush bamboo forests, towering gulches, and green fields. While the central valley's sugarcane is the most visible agricultural crop, there is a heck of a lot more growing on Maui's volcanic slopes. 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 »

Siren's Call
Rated 5.0 Stars
The waters of Florida are well-known to have manatees living in them throughout the year. During the winter months the manatees come inland to areas where they can warm up--such as fresh water springs or power plants with warm water outflows. You can generally find them between November and March to be staying close to the inland warmth. More »

Honey Is Not Just For Bears
Rated 5.0 Stars
How many kinds of honey can you name? Honey is a wonderful food and I will share what the National Honey board told me about honey. Did you know honey inhibits mold in cooked foods. You can eat honey or put it on your body. Really, it is for medicinal purposes too. I suppose you can come up with your own honey ideas. More »
