Oahu Compendium

I spent a week at Ko-Olina, Oahu and of course, I couldn't be left without supervision, so brought my two grandsons along to keep an eye on me. (Griffin and Cannon). Griffin and Cannon brought my daughter and son-in-law with them.

These photos were taken at the Dole Plantation and we all gorged on pineapple ice cream.

Ever competitive, there was time for ping pong - when we could have been out on the surf line.

It was Griffin's second trip to Hawaii - and Cannon's (age 3) first. 

Sunset Beach - North Shore
Waves running 10-15 Ft.

My daughter is expecting her third boy on December 18th. (photo taken at Ko-Olina)

Start at the Beginning

If you want to understand anyone, you must start at the beginning to understand what formed them and what made them who they are today. This is your Sunday Sermonette. 

Make of it what you will. But it explains a great deal.

National Park Filming Fee

Permit Cost: $1,500 to film in a National Park. No, it's not a hoax. The nation pays taxes to maintain the parks. National parks belong to the people, not to those wealthy enough to pay $1,500 to film in them. What are these people thinking?

Family Album

I don't normally post this sort of stuff, but a fellow blogger wanted to see a photo of me with my mother.  I'm not sure why they wanted to see that, except I harbor a suspicion that they think that I didn't have a mother -- maybe thinking that I'm an alien.

I don't have many photos with my mother, but my sister took this photo several years ago. I think that this is the time that I'd just returned from Iraq and flew to Redding to visit her. You'll note that we have the same hair - but mine is shorter.

Double Standard

When it comes to counting other people's caloric intake, Michelle Obama sets the standards for dietary excellence for everyone else. She's progressive, that's how it works in the world that she inhabits. Her dump truck body that she sets out as the standard for the nation's dietary practices could be improved if only she could take the fork out of her mouth.

As Michelle Obama purges school vending machines of sugary snacks, The White House snack machine is selling 590 calorie honey buns. No, honey buns is not a metaphor for the ladies walking up the stairs next to Michelle. We're talking real honey buns in the vending machine.

Michelle Obama’s fight against childhood obesity in America’s schools has reached past the lunchroom into bake sales and even the vending machines. The First Lady’s new standards remove any sugary snacks over 200 calories from the school's machines while leaving the one in the White House stocked with delicious, fattening food.
