Ehhh, the mainlanders talk so much shit about spam, and how it’s leftover crap from the ‘real’ meat cuts and all that (never mind that categorically, THEY eat worse stuff).

I came across this while bumming around youtube searches. I thought this was awesome.
I’d only ever heard the much more forceful Peter Moon Band version and actually thought that was the only cut of the song. What do I know, I’m just a longtime kama’aina who didn’t grow up in Hawaii…… Continue Reading “Kaulana Na Pua”
Here I go again!! I posted a little babble about Guam the last time I returned after spending a couple of weeks there. The feeling has hit again after this last visit….

This was a shocker to me. Not that I was a devout fan of [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robin_Williams]Robin Williams[/url] per se, but he was a brilliant comedian and actor. He was one of those whose abilities to do ad hoc and ad lib comedy as well as perform across the entire range of acting roles fro … Continue Reading “Robin Williams – Suicide”

Sheppard AFB, TX Aug 2014.
Graduated! The VoIP Cisco Unified Communications Manager course is in the books. We did quick review this morning, took the final test, and all pau. I scored 100% surprisingly but it was a rather easy test by design.
