  Hey Jewels!
Congrats to you and a very Happy Hatch Day to you sweetie!!

Love your hat by the way.

Here's part 1


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
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.

Here’s a vote for you, sending you all warm wing hugs and beaky kisses.

Love from Hawaii,

Laka Aolani, Candidate for BOTM

  Congrats for BOTD Ms Jewels-love from Ziggy Dallas
Our Monday started at a very cold -3 below zero with wind chills at 20 below once again! All this cold weather is starting to get old, come on Spring! There was some exciting football games on yesterday, Denver was about our only choice that won, the Pack and Sea Hawks, still have next year! Our computer is almost back to normal, we used it a lot yesterday with only a few glitches, but worked fine after re-booting a few times, it felt great to reconnect with many of our friends! Have a great Monday, and give our frozen love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow dear friends...

  Hi Jewels
I hope to see more of you in the new year. Happy New Year!
Mom had a busy day today, first at the wildlife center where she cleaned and fed turtles and squirrels, then home to prepare for her annual open house. Anna came bright and early to help, so she was able to keep an eye on the pork roast while mom was gone. She also dismantled and got rid of the old stereo. When mom got back, they continued cooking, adding sauerkraut, apples, and kielbasa to the pork roasting in the roaster. They washed all the dishes and serving pieces that only come out once a year, then filed everything with dips, chips, pretzels, cheeses, crackers, cookies, nut roll, etc... Mom swears there was enough for a third world nation. Most of the food was gone when the last guests left around 8PM, though, so it was a successful party.
We all hope you had a great day today! I hope you got lots of cuddles and scritches, too! Hugs, Falco

Extras are always good.
Today BC is acting up, slow, too many pop up ads, so we're doing a short c/p just to say hello. Anna brought the peanut butter blossoms today, so that's one less thing mom will have to bake. They look great, too!
Mom is working at the museum, doing 2 tours today, but she'll be home by 4, so will be ours for the evening, other than baking a batch of sugar cookies. I hope you are having a great day today, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Jewels
Kallie was a good friend of ours, we will miss him terribly. Mom did get all the cards addressed finally, now she has to get them into the mail!
Last night mom had 2 tours in Dinosaurs. On the first one, a guy asked her the name of the aetosaur (herbivorous crocodile) on the wall mural, and she couldn't think of it! How embarrassing! Mom got the guy's email address at the end of the tour and promised to find out and send him the info. She left a note on her boss' desk, and Pat wrote to her this morning with the name. She has since emailed the guy, who was glad to get the info.
This morning mom did the recovery room and checked in on a trainee who was doing the menagerie for the first time. It was a relatively uneventful morning. There is a musk turtle in there, he's very cute and very small! Other animals in there included 5 box turtles and 2 snappers. The one box turtle came in the summer with nail polish all over his shell, and they are still scrubbing him every day to get it off.
After she got home, her friend came by. She hasn't seen Ann since March, so they had a lot of catching up to do. They went to the local Thai restaurant, where mom's friend had Thai food for the first time ever. Now she's home, blogging for us, then planning to spend the rest of the day and evening with us as well.
I hope you are having a great day today, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Jewels
What a nice pic for Thanksgiving. I hope mom posts a pic of the new sweater, too.
Mom cleaned the large flight cage (outdoors, think barn sized) this morning, then worked in the menagerie for the rest of her shift. Ray the crow got an egg from her, because she really loves him and likes giving him treats. Mom also cleaned the snakes'(Jake and Casper) enclosures, the quail (Oscar and Emmy), Simon the soft shelled turtle, Twitch the squirrel, Cecelia the barred owl, Hermes the short eared owl, then her time was up. She cleaned Irwin the porcupine's carrier, but not his enclosure, and had to leave him, Murphy the skunk, and Quasimodo the possum to the staff to finish. Still, she got a lot done in 2 hours! Mom hasn't been in the menagerie for ages! It was so nice to work where she could talk to the animals. Did you notice that all the animals in there have names? That's because they are part of the education staff at the center. They can't be released for various reasons, so they get a name and a place to live for life. Oh, the large flight cage is currently housing a turkey vulture.
Mom is pretty tired right now, but we're sure she'll be okay after blogging for us and resting for a bit. Then she can get up and go again. She may drive to Cleveland tomorrow; the museum there is having a Dinosaur day and Matt LaManna, the curator from the Carnegie, will speak in the afternoon. She has to check and see what time the meeting at the center is over before she decides, though. It may be that she'll get out of the meeting too late to make the lecture, so we'll see what happens. She's hoping that if she can't make it, someone there will tape it.
I hope you are having a good day today, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches, and maybe even a special treat or two. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Jewels
Have mom get zinc oxide as a sun product, that's what lots of people use on their noses when they're out there. That shouldn't burn. Hope mom loves her Seahawk stuff!
Happy Veteran's Day to all the vets out there.
There's not much to report today, we are going to have a fine day with mom once the cleaning lady gets done. Mom has a book she wants to finish, and we still have to encourage her to chop down those peonies! Guess what? The weather here has been so strange that there are rosebuds on the peace rose! Mom is hoping to see a flower before everything freezes. She didn't see any flowers all summer because every time there was a bud, the deer ate it before it bloomed. She doesn't even know what colors to expect. There is also an iris in bloom! Our pink florabunda rose blooms up until a hard frost, so there are still blooms on it, too.
I hope you are having a great day. It's cloudy and cool here, typical fall weather. I hope you get lots of cuddles and scritches, too. Hugs, Falco
