  Hi Mrs BB
Poor Liv, she still has pink eye & she also has a stomach virus! It hasn't been a good week for her! Mom hasn't been on BC the past 2 days because we were taking care of Livi and she spent the night last night. I love the grandkiddos sooooo much, but they don't like me chasing them around, but they do like giving me kisses!

We are in for some really cold weather. Between now and Sunday the high temps will be in the teens and low 20's and the low temps will be in the single digits! On Saturday the temp will be around 11°/-2° and very windy & with the wind chill it could feel like -20°! That's way too cold!

I hope your day was a good one!

The meaning of the name “Laka” is: “Gentle, Tame”.

Aolani Name meaning & Origin is: “Beautiful Heavenly Cloud”

Hawaiian Goddesses
by Serge Kahili King

The Hawaiian concept of gods and goddesses is very different from that of Western and Near Eastern traditions, from African and Australian traditions, and from North and South American traditions. Although still different, it bears a closer resemblance to the more eclectic traditions of India, China, and Japan than with any others.

The word for god or goddess in Hawaiian is akua, whose meaning is very indeterminate. It was applied to the spirit, i.e., the invisible motive or creative essence, of anything and everything. Therefore, the Creator, the wind, the first aspect of the full moon, a high-ranking chief, a slave, a ghost, and that which causes a motor to work might all be called akua in certain contexts. For the most part, though, the word was commonly applied to forces, persons, and things which had a lot of mana, i.e., power or influence. What this means is that, when we hear or read stories of an entity such as Pele, the volcano goddess, we can never be certain whether the story is about the spirit of a natural phenomenon, the human ancestor of a particular family line, or both, or neither.

Another important feature of Hawaiian gods and goddesses is that they are often completely unrelated. To people familiar with the Greek Olympians as a family opposing the Titans as a family, or the Norse Aesir against the Vanir, relations between Hawaiian gods and goddesses seem incomprehensible. As Martha Beckwith says in Hawaiian Mythology, "It seems to me therefore probable that different immigrant families brought with them the gods and ritual familiar to them." Unlike the Hindu system, which at least tries to form the gods and goddesses of many different peoples, times, and places into an integrated whole, the Hawaiians seldom bothered to do so, allowing vastly different traditions to exist side by side in happy chaos. And in the few instances where some integration was attempted, it was always very limited in scope.

Part 2
One more feature to be mentioned about Hawaiian gods and goddesses is that the more power they were assumed to have, the more different forms they were thought to take at will. The most powerful could take forms that were either human, animal, vegetable, mineral, or other. The god Kamapua'a, for example, could turn into a human, a pig, a fish, a type of grass, or even the rain. In Hawaiian these forms are called kino lau (many bodies).

In this article we are putting our focus on Hawaiian goddesses, and since there are so many of them, we will only look at seven of the most important ones. Even then, only a small amount of information will be given for each one. In addition to information available from various written sources, such as Beckwith's Hawaiian Mythology, I will add information given me by members of the Kahili family who taught me their traditions pe At various times, then, I have taught about the goddesses in different ways, and that has led to some confusion on the part of students. So, for healing purposes only at a beginner level for understanding and using the concept of Hawaiian goddesses, here is the Ola 'Ana Papakahi o Na Akua Wahine Hawai'i, "The First Level Organization of Hawaiian Goddesses" in order of attributions and associations of name, principle, color, element, and primary function.

Hina: 'Ike, White, Water, Awareness (Knowledge)

Haumea: Kala, Red, Stone, Freedom (Release)

Pele: Makia, Orange, Fire, Focus (Energy)

Hi'iaka: Manawa, Yellow, Wind, Presence (Purpose)

Laka: Aloha, Green, Plants, Love (Compassion)

Kapo: Mana, Blue, Animals, Power (Ability)

Uli: Pono, Purple, People, Success (Effectiveness)

That’s all for today folks, sorry I couldn’t find a spooky story to tell you, but I’m still looking.

Thank you for all the love and support for my birdie of the month campaign.

Happy Po ‘akolu (Happy Wednesday). Humpty humpty humpty away until Friday comes.

  Hi Ms BB--
It's almost time for Rosie to be in the KB.......let Mom known
where to send the picture!

Sorry I and my fiblings have been so long absent from the BC...The Old Guy spent a week in the hospital, and then Mom had to deal with Auntie and Hubby in Law visiting for more than a week...She is just now beginning to get her act together...it didn't help that Rosie just about got her toe chewed off by the lovebirds (again)...and that she is busily trying to chew the keys off the computer while Mom types. Rosie is just back from the vet now, and the vet said she is going to lose a toe, but they are not going to cut it off unless there are complications.

The rest of the flock is fine....Sherman and Peabody are pretty much encased in vinyl right now since Rosie won't stay away from them. The finches are pretty much ok except that Phoenix is developing a crossed bill...we kinda think that is from an injury he had before he was rescued, but it's looking like he may be the next one to visit the vet....good thing the Moms found a good one. Anyway, as long as Phoenix keeps eating, things are good, but ....

Please excuse the cut and paste....Mom will be back as soon as she can....and Rosie has a stint in the Kissing Booth coming up, so that should help!

Hugs and Kisses to all,

Tooth

Ninth = ‘eiwa (ay va)
Yes = ‘ae (eye)

To come = hele mai (hey-lay my)
To go cruising = holoholo (ho-low-ho-low)
The sea = Kai (ky) the ocean Makai (ma-kai)
Prohibited, taboo, forbidden = Kapu (ka-pooh) to keep out
Child, offspring Keiki (kay-kee)
Teacher Kumu (koo-moo) Hula Teacher Kumu Hula (koo-moo hoo la)
Sky, the heavens, heavenly Lani (la-nee)

  Hello BB~
I hope you are having a wonderful day. We are finishing up laundry and getting mom ready to go back to work tonight.
McKenzie is feeling happy today. I can tell because she keeps getting into trouble!hehehehehehe
Mom went to Costco yesterday. The problem with that is trying to find places to put the stuff. We have a case of applesauce sitting on the computer desk and cereal on the breakfast bar. The paper towels are on the dryer and there is a case of Starbucks White Chocolate Frap on the file cabinet. Those are for Jennifer. The freezer and pantry are full also. I know it sounds like a lot but mom only goes there every 2 or 3 months. Depends on how long that case of toilet paper lasts! There is a really big bag of broccoli in the fridge. Mom just won't give up! She knows I'm not going to eat it but since she is going to make me some chop I have a feeling she will sneak it in there. I'll just eat around it!hahahahaha
It's almost like Spring here today! I fell so bad for all those out east who are having to put up with snow. Wish you could all be here with me!
Enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big ole hug too!

  Hey Mrs BB,
Sorry my blog is late, mom was tired when she came home from work and took a birdie nap.

I think the older hoomans get the more sleep they need. Shish!!

Anywho, today we will learn some words that if you come to Hawaii you will definitely need to know.

For example the restrooms have hydro glyphics and only says Kane (Ka ne) male or Wahine (wa-hee-nay) female. That's where a lot of tourists shake their heads trying to figure out which is which.

Also if you hear the word pupule (pooh-poo-lay) that means crazy; insane. Most common use is crazy.

Here's a nice phrase called Pehea 'oe? (Pay-hay-ya oy) (oy as in toy) meaning how are you?

A lot of us has to do this every week or get the trash out. 'Opala (oh-pa-la). Yes every week we hafta take the 'Opala out. :)

Here's a good one I think everyone will like. 'Ono (oh-no) meaning delicious, tasty. Most common use delicious, as in taste of food. :)

This one everyone had some of. It's called 'ohana (oh-ha-na) or family.

This one refers to my Angel frother Pookie. He was very niele (née-eh-lay) meaning curious, inquisitive, a busy body or nosy person or bird. Hehehe

This one we all say to each other. Malama pono (ma-la-ma po-no) meaning be careful, take care , or to care for. Most common use: Take care. :)

Hope you all have a fun time pronunciating Hawaiian phrases or words.

Soon everyone will be speaking Hawaiian.

Malama pono! :)

A Hui ho (ah who-ee ho) until we meet again or see you later.

Sending you all warm wing hugs and beaky kisses along with a vote.

  Hi Ms BB
That's an adorable pic, you should have entered! Mom keeps chasing Falco off the new chair, but the rest of us have been avoiding it so far.
Happy Chinese New Year Everybirdie! It's the Year of the Monkey, I wonder if that gives us all a chance to act like monkeys all year long? Congratulations to the Broncos, too. We didn't watch the game, but Lady Gaga did one great job with the National Anthem, and Beyonce did a fine halftime show. We tuned in to that to see Santana play a little.
Mom finished the Pterosaur book, watched the videos from the AMNH website, watched the Puppy Bowl, and even turned on the Fish Bowl for a few minutes.
Mom cleaned the mammal nursery today, with 3 squirrels and 2 possums, all adults. None of them was ready to go outside yet, though, they each need some extra care. The little flying squirrel has a stash of around 2 pounds of nuts that she's keeping in a pillowcase in her cage. Everyone is letting her keep them. We think when she gets released, she'll have a stash to start with in the spring.
Someone brought in a fennec fox! These guys are desert foxes who live in the Sahara. He said he found it on his back porch, didn't know what it was, and brought it to us. The poor little thing is emaciated and dehydrated, as well as blind in one eye. They are keeping him in the treatment room for now and trying to bulk him up a little. If he survives, we think he'll be going to the zoo or to some kind of sanctuary. It makes mom so angry when people take wild animals and try to make them pets. There are enough dogs, cats, and other animals who make good pets already.
It's supposed to snow here tonight through Wednesday, but we'll see what happens. Those guys are wrong probably more than they are right. I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Willie

Just a quick note tonight, mom is watching the Superbowl game. She would like to see the Broncos win, would like to see Peyton Manning go out on top!

Change of plans, mom & Liv aren't starting the crystals until Tuesday. Sis called this morning, Liv has pink eye, she's the last one in her family to get it! Mom wants to wait a couple days because her eye is swollen shut! I sure hope mom doesn't get it!

I hope you are having a great day! We are having a little Puppy Bowl party. Don't really care about the Super Bowl. We just hope it's a fun game and that everyone has a great time.
Mom has been filing the papers we sorted out this week. That is one big job done. Now she just has to make sure everyone keeps up with filing! There is a big box of papers for dad to go through when he gets home. I'm sure he will just love doing it!
Mom has 2 more nights so we are going to enjoy them! Jennifer is home and she is watching Agents of Shield. We have seen them but she hasn't. I don't mind seeing them again.

  Hi Mrs BB,
Thank you. Yes there are lots of lava tubes we all can walk thru. Some are miles and miles long but very very interesting.

Today I want to talk about where my mom is from. She grew up in a little town called Hilo pronounced (hee lo). The name of Hilo is an ancient one, its origins lost in the mists of time. One of the widely accepted origins is that Hilo was named for a famous Polynesian navigator, Hiro, perhaps in honor of his great skill in bringing his people to this rich and fertile place.

The first night of the lunar month, just following the new moon, is known as Hilo. The think crescent moon is on the eastern horizon as the sun rises, its shape reflected in the curve of Hilo Bay's crescent shaped black sand beach.

No story of Hilo is complete without mention of the three names for Hilo. Hilo-one refers to the part of Hilo fronting the black sand beach, where shoreline activities like fishing and canoe launching took place. Hilo-Hanakahi, the fertile food-producing land south of Hilo Bay was named for a beloved chief who ruled here during a time of peace. The formidable cliffs that run north from the mouth of the Wailuku River are known as Hilo-pali-ku. Hilo was considered waiwai, or wealthy, due to its abundance of fresh water.

A charming folk tale has long been told linking Hilo to King Kamehameha, a great warrior, whose chief ambition, which he lived to realize, was to become the ruler of all the Hawaiian Islands. Naturally, he had numerous enemies, and he never remained long in one place for fear that the some of them might learn about his whereabouts and attack him.

Okay now for some fun stuff. Today is Sunday and it is spelled Lapule pronounced (la-poo-lay) in Hawaiian. The month is February and it is spelled 'Ianuali pronounced (yah-new-ah-lee) in Hawaiian. Have you got it? :)

Just say it slow and it will come, soon you all will be eggsperts in speaking Hawaiian.

Tomorrrow is spelled i ka la 'apopo pronounced (ee kah lah ah-poh-poh) in Hawaiian.

We shall finish or pau/(pow) in Hawaiian with good afternoon or aloha awakea (ah-low-hah ah-vah-kay-ah)or (midday).

Mahalo a Nui Loa (ma-hah-low ah noo-ee low-ah) or Thank you very much for your love and support.

Here's a vote for you and hope you all have a great Lapule afternoon! :)

  Hey Mrs BB,
Tonight I want to talk about Madame Pele, the volcano Goddess of Kilauea Volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Legend has it that the lava flow will never come down to the Hilo side or the Kona side as long as the "Hawaiians" are in check. So to speak.

That's why there are Hula Halaus that have ceremonies at the volcano to leave offerings of food and other stuff but no hooman sacrifices. Which is good. :)

There are many legends at the volcano observatory that have written testimony from hundreds of tourists that have taken a trinket from the land and have fallen into lots of bad luck.

Be it a rock or black sand or something minute, everything from the Aina or land has to stay here. Once taken off the island the person or persons will have terrible terrible bad luck.

Many of them had since sent those things taken sent back to the island ASAP.

There are warning signs about taking anything off the island. All the written testimony proves that the legend is true.

Tourist beware, or prepare to have terrible bad luck. Indeed the Madame Pele spirit of the "Aina" or land is so true and strong.

That's like Mr. Glen Grants stories in his book "Chicken Skin" tells all and then some it's very true.

Happy weekend everyone and a vote for you too.

Love & Aloha from Hawaii. :)

I hope the day was great! I took a shower today and it felt good. I had been feeding McKenzie some of my treats and then decided that we both needed to get cleaned up! She started barking at me when I dumped the water on her so I know she really enjoyed it! She got toweled off and I just air dried!
Mom took Jennifer down to visit her dad this morning so I got some quiet time! I got another piece of my hatchday cake after lunch. It was lovely.
The rest of the day was spent chasing puppy and trying to get chores done. We are now going to relax and get my notes done and perhaps watch a movie. It is very rare for mom to have a Saturday night off so we are going to make the most of it!
I hope your evening is just wonderful!

I want to give a very big thank you to SweetPepper & her sweet mom for making my awesome Valentine's Milonga pic! Thank you sooooo much!!!

Mom left for 1 1/2 hrs today to get some supplies for Livi's science fair project. Mom is going to her house tomorrow morning to start working on sugar crystals. Livi is in a girls' basketball league so mom has to work around her practice schedule. I'm sure not going to like being in lockdown every time she leaves! Mom's world is supposed to revolve around ME!

  Hey Mrs BB,
Sorry I didn't get my blog out today as mom had an interview lunch time and they made her wait for a few minutes then told her to come back in 15 minutes. Plus mom had to feed the meter but forgot her phone at work so she drove a block and then came back. She had to kinda walk far so when she came home she took a long birdie nap.

She didn't get up till 6 pm, what a snoozer I tell ya!

So tonight I'm gonna talk about Iolani Palace that's in town.

It's full of antiques and portraits of the past king and queens and other Hawaiian descendants also.

Mom took a ghost walking tour one night long time ago and one stop was at the palace and the tour guide was a renound ghost guy.

At one end where the princess was being held he said you could smell her perfume blowing in the breeze. And everyone on the tour could smell it and got chicken skin. Down the street was an old building that was an old morgue back in the day and that's why people in that building has eggsperienced things moving or missing.

The spirits are alive and moving there. Mom never worked in that building, well not since she heard about that.

The ghost tour ended up in the graveyard in town which was appropriate being a ghost tour an all.

Mom enjoyed it and so did her friends.

In my gallery you can see the palace and also other pictures.

Now you know if you ever go by the palace on the east side corner, try and see if you can smell the princess perfume. You'll be amazed, mom was. :)

That's all for tonight as my typist is getting sleepy.

More tomorrow and I thank you for your votes and support.

Here's a vote for you also.

  Hi Mrs BB
Maybe Tweety or Cookie would have a pic of Blue. I save milonga pics, but I don't have any from the KB.

Well, Mom went to the GI doc yesterday, and as expected she will need to have an endoscopy. He also wants to put in a small wireless device that measures pH to monitor her acid for 2-3 days, but Mom is pretty sure the insurance people will not approve that. It is very leading edge, and insurance is always trailing edge.

It was warm enough for a sunbath today (73), but the wind is absolutely howling out there. I do not like the wind, so I am staying inside. It is supposed to be even warmer tomorrow and for the next week or so. Surely this wind will die down, and I will be able to catch some rays.

Today was the last day to enter the pic contest for the Valentine's Milonga. Entries will be closed in a couple of hours, but we have some wonderful pics entered, eggspecially in the Couples category. You can see the names of the entries now, and we will put up the pics by this evening. We are still missing one pic, but hopefully will have it in time.

  Hello BB~
I hope you had a wonderful day! It was busy around here but that was just because of puppy duty. McKenzie got into a lot of trouble today. She just couldn't seem to sit still. Mom was chasing after her most of the day! She still is! McKenzie just doesn't want to leave Merlin alone. Mom doesn't want to keep Merlin locked up all day and McKenzie really needs to learn to leave him alone.
I decided she was looking pretty hungry so I started throwing seeds, nuts and pellets down for her! Mom didn't think it was a very good idea. She swept it up and by the time she dumped it, I had thrown more down. Mom swept it up again and then dumped the rest. I got some veggie instead. That was my plan all along!hahahahaha
Obviously, we didn't get much else done. Mom was working on cleaning the oven. Since we don't use any chemicals around here it takes a bit longer to do. She should be able to finish it up tomorrow.
I hope you enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Mrs BB
Mom went over to see her granddaughter Olivia for 3 hrs to discuss her science fair project. Mom had the nerve to put me in lockdown! Livi is so excited to be growing crystals for her project! Mom showed her different crystals on websites. They are going to do at least 10-12 different crystals. Mom said that I don't get to help at all...how rude! She said that boiling water and birdies don't mix! For the crystals that will be made using chemicals will be done over at Livi's house...NEVER any chemicals used around me! Mom is going supply shopping tomorrow and Livi & she will start working on crystals over the weekend. The science fair is on March 7th, so hopefully they will get a lot made by then!

I hope your day was a good one!

  Hi Mrs BB,
Well, so far we've gone to the north shore of Oahu and seen the big 24 foot waves and boy was it windy! :)

Today we are going to Hanauma Bay (pronounced Hanau-ma). It's a nice cove that's a fish and aquatic sanctuary. It used to be free but now everyone has to pay to go in.

Mom has passed by and from the hill looking down the water is prestine blue and clear. Before you could feed the fishes and they sold frozen peas for you to feed the fishes. Mom heard that all the fishes are tame since they are fed regularly. They come up and rub your legs as you are in the water. Never heard of anyone getting bitten by them tame fish. You never know one might just get a little too greedy and take a chunk of flesh to see if it tastes good.

Anywho, maybe when one of the BC parronts come down to Hawaii, mom will actually have a reason to go there and feed the fishies.

The picture of Hanauma Bay is in my gallery thanks to Cookie's mom, Momma Mary. :)

Love and warm hugs to ya'll in the cold states.

Also a vote for you.

Aloha a Hui ho! Till. Tomorrow! :)

  Hello BB~
I hope your day was fabulous! I had a pretty good one. I helped mom go through more papers today! Mom found tax returns from before she was married!!! She has been married for nearly 34 years!hahahahahaha Ian said it was pretty impressive. Mom said it was really bad of her to hang on to stuff that old! It's all shredded and gone now. We do know that McKenzie will bark at the paper shredder! Mom brought her over to it so she knows it's not a scary thing.
Mom made a trip over to the Goodwill and deposited a bunch of stuff! She is very pleased that we got rid of so much stuff! There were things mom didn't even know we had and hopefully someone else will be happy to have them!
Ian took mom to Chipotles for lunch. She loves having salads there. The manager gave them drinks and chips for free since they come in there so often. That was so nice of him!! They have had a lot of bad press lately but mom have never had a bad experience there.
Mom checked her schedule for next week and she is not scheduled until Tuesday night! That means extra days of vacation for her! YAY!! Don't know if that will be the case but it's nice if it is!
I just love your picture! I gotta get going on mine!
I hope you enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Mrs BB
What a beautiful day, our temps were 64°/47°, the average temps are 36°/21°! Tho it's going to cool down again, a high of 40° tomorrow.

Mom is going to be busy for the next couple weeks. She'll be helping Livi, her 7 yr old granddaughter with her science fair project. They are going to make several different kinds of crystals. Mom said that I get to taste the rock candy crystals, yummm!

I hope your day was a good one!

  Hi Mrs BB
I am afraid I don't understand your request. Is that a pic that you think I have a copy of? I am not even sure who Blue is. Help??!!!

High of 61 degrees here today, so definitely no sunbath. Mom had insomnia last night, so watched a couple of shows she had recorded and then overslept this morning. I am used to getting breakfast around 6:30, and it was almost 8 before she got in there. I was hanging on the door of my cage when she pulled the cover off! I didn't bite her though; aren't you proud of me?

Mom will be leaving for the gym from 4-6, but I get her the rest of the day. I was very hyper yesterday, so she is very glad I have mellowed out overnight. I was ready to take Dad down, if he would have just come a little bit farther into my room.....Yep! I would have nailed him for sure!

The pic contest is coming along, and we now have entries in every category. The couples in love is the one with the most entries, so we could use a few more single and lovin' it, lookin' for love and the group category of friends and flock. The pics we have gotten so far are all amazing, and they will be unveiled on the Milonga page the evening of the 5th when entries close and voting begins.

  Hey Mrs BB,
The temperature today is a high of 85 degrees warm. I say warm cause the cool trade winds keeps us at a nice temperature. :)

Not too cold and not too hot, unless your on the beach with no umbrella then your cooking.

Today the Sunset Beach is pumping out 24 foot sets and believe me if your in your car by the roadside you can actually feel the strong wind push your car.

Can you imagine if you were on the beach? You'd fall backwards in the sand and then the wind would blow tons of sand on you. The whipping sand could equal a desert sand storm but not that bad, but close.

Many of the pro surfers compete in the pro surfing contest every year. I think some of the winners win up to like $16,000.00 or something like that.

If you ask me, that's like hazard pay! :(

Some surfers do get into trouble in those big waves and the life guards are right there waiting just in case cause time is critical in that type of rough water.

Sole tourists also give it a try but they end up being saved by the lifeguards because they didn't listen. Hoomans I tell ya!!

Well, happy hump day to you all and I thank you for your votes, love and support.

Here's a vote for you too, my sweet friend. :)

Love & hugs till tomorrow!

Rain Rain Rain today - at least it's not snow.

Tuesday night Dad, Uncle Geno and Uncle J.J. joined a full house to see one of the cinema's greatest films, "THE RULES OF THE GAME" (1938 Dir: Jean Renoir). What a joy to see this on the Big Screen again.

Dad's been sharing morning bagels with me...or should I say I am allowing him a taste of MY bagel. So yummy in the morning.

  Avast there good matey!
I’ve come by to invite you to my 11th Hatchday Pirate Party over on me page. There ye will find in the “How I met my owner” section of my profile some limericks that I’ve brought back from the far corners of the world to share with you! If ye feel compelled to write some words of yer own on my page, please try to keep it clean & with the rules of this good BC in mind. Garrr….there were many that I couldn’t share with ye because of it being a bit risqué . It wouldn’t be much of a “pirate” limerick without such things but pillaging & dismemberment will have to satisfy ye!

Bring a good appetite & be prepared for some ale & rum, lads & lassies! ’Tis a fair day fer turnin’ 11! (aye-aye). See ye real soon! Sam bows & waves with his pirate hat “goodbye”.

  Hello BB~
I hope you had a great day! I don't know what picture it is that you need. I have some of them saved on this computer and others are saved on Jennifer's computer. Let me know which picture it is and I'll find it.
Got more cleaning out done today. Mom was cleaning out papers and McKenzie was trying to help! She grabs stuff and runs off with them. Since she is running off with stuff she has to know it's a bad thing to do!!
Enjoy the evening!

  Hi Mrs BB
Thank you again my dear friends for the Hatchday wishes and for BOTD honors! I had such a great Hatchday and it was wonderful to be queen for the day! Tho I must admit that I have my mom so well trained, she treats me like a queen every day!

Some friends asked me about two of my pics, so I'll answer in my blog.

In my one pic I chewed up two $20s. She put all the pieces into a baggie & went to her bank. Mom explained what happened & showed a pic of me. All the tellers came over to see the money shredding birdie & had a good laugh! Mom left with two unchewed $20s. Mom no longer leaves money on the table!

The other was about shreddable pinatas. They are my favorite toys! Mom always gets me a parrot & a horsie (or donkey). I always bite the face off first! Then I bite off the hanging string & destroy the rest of it on the floor!

I hope your day was a good one!

  Hi Mrs BB,
Aloha everyone and welcome to Hawaii!!

Hawaii is the melting pot of a variety of ethnic groups of people.

The Chinese, Japanese, Korean and some European people immigrated to Hawaii way back when. That's why most of the people get along as they all grew up together. They didn't know about racism and all that bad stuff till later on.

I think that's why a lot of people like Hawaii because of the fact that there are so many different ethnic people that get along well. Well, most of the time.

The weather here's so beautiful and the valleys are green and lush, it makes you able to grow just about any kind of plants, even marijuana. :0

A lot of kids grew up surfing and some have even gone pro and we are so very proud of them.

The beaches are clean and the ocean water clear blue, so inviting and cool. There are about 13 state holidays in Hawaii and mom gets those days off,isn't that nice? :)

But, Hawaii is also getting to be a very expensive place to live. Yesterday the parronts went grocery shopping and a dozen eggs was $6.99. Can you believe that or what? Trust me I do not lie. I think it's time for the parronts to go to the farm. The chicken farm that is, it's always cheaper there.

Anywho getting back to Hawaii, during the winters months the famous north shore waves are huge! Right now it's up to 22 feet! Yikes!!

I'm staying in the parking lot. Yesterday on the news they showed some tourists in the shoreline and a big wave came and took them into the ocean. The lifeguard saved them, thankfully. But you should never turn your back on the ocean, that's lesson number one.

Stay tuned for a continuation of welcome to Hawaii.

Mahalo for all the votes, love and support.

A Hui ho! (Till tomorrow)

Love,

Laka Girl

  Hi Mrs BB,
Today I'm gonna talk about our Hawaii weather. We have the most bestest weather around.

Its usually around in the 80's and during the summer in the 90's but you couldn't really tell as we have the wonderful trade winds to keep our island cool.

That's why are valleys are lush green and looks a birdies paradise.

We do have a rainy season mostly during the winter months but not that bad. We have hurricane warnings during that time and if it does hit the islands with destruction we all bounce back and help each other to rebuild.

We are a melting pot of a lot of different ethnic backgrounds. But we still get along and live in harmony.

Don't get me wrong but anywhere you go there is danger lurking around so it's best to go sightseeing with local friends.

There are some parts of the islands where some of the locals don't take kindly to strangers so please go with a tour guide as much as possible. Or call my mom and see if she's available. :). Hehehe

More tomorrow and you all have a great big birdie day.

Thank you for your continued support and votes.

Mahalo Nui Loa (thank you very much)

Love, hugs and a vote for you.

  Hello BB~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It was busy around here. We are still going on with the spring cleaning and the back of the car is now filled with stuff for the Goodwill. Mom will have to drop that stuff off tomorrow so she can put more in there. McKenzie is in the back seat so anything we put there would be chewed up by the time mom got to Goodwill!
The kitchen and the dining room are done and now mom is working on her room. It's slow going since she can only do it when the puppy is taking a nap or at night when she is in her crate. McKenzie is a very curious girl and wants to see everything!
Dad is in Utah and says the weather is nasty. He he one of 28 trucks who are hauling the equipment for a show called Marvel Universe Live. It's got Spiderman and my favorite, Captain America. It's coming to Seattle after Utah but I don't think dad will be hauling the stuff again.
I hope you have a lovely evening! Leaving a vote and a hug too!
With Love ~ Sugar ♥
