  1. Mr. BLB and I will be in Kona for 7 days in Feb. with his parents. They go every year, he's been once and I'm a Hawaii virgin. I see lots of fish in my future. Any places that are not to miss? I don't want to rock the boat in their routine too much but I also want to be able to claim some portion of the trip as mine. Thanks! Jennifer
  2. Harold Sakata was the silver medalist in Weightlifting (Light Heavyweight Division (82.5kg)) at the 1948 Summer Olympics in London, finishing behind his countryman, Stanley Stanczyk, who won five consecutive world titles. Few of us remember Stancyzk, despite his having been the more accomplished sportsman, but we all remember Sakata. Click

    Dec 7, 1941

    When you hear the date Dec 7, 1941, two words instantly spring to mind: But something else happened on that date also. From the very first scene in the film, "Shoah" ...
  4. I'm sorry I didn't get this up yesterday, but people may had noticed that our flags were at half-staff. President Obama ordered this to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, Dec 7, 1941 ("a day which will live in infamy") - the attack killed 2,403 Americans, and directly led to America entering World War II Within one hour of Roosevelt's "Day of Infamy" speech on Dec 8, 1941, America issued a formal declaration of war against Japan (as I write this, today is the 75th anniversary of America's entry into World War II - something which was entirely justified, and has not been repeated since (and I say this with *full respect* for the victims of 9/11 - both events killed about 3,000 people). The reason I said it "has not been repeated" is because Pearl Harbor was an act of war; 9/11 was an act of terrorism (there is a fine line between the two, but 9/11 changed how we must think going forward; WWII was much "cleaner" in terms of defining the job which needed to be done). This post is written in honor of our military personnel, with an emphasis on those with relatives who died at Pearl Harbor, and a strong emphasis on all those who died that day. God bless all of you. and thank you for saving my life by giving up yours. (I apologize for my awkward writing in the previous sentence, but I'm a bit addled right now, as I've been up since 3:30 AM, and am getting very sleepy.)
  5. Lili'uokalani was the last monarch of the Kingdom of Hawaii (1795-1893). This song is so hackneyed that it's embarrassing to write about, but I suspect the vast majority of people don't know who Lili'uokalani was, so I'm primarily writing this to pay her a tribute. I'm not taking anything away from the song - it's beautiful - but it's just so overplayed that it's like someone from Mongolia meeting you over there and asking if you know Michael Jordan (don't laugh - a variation of this happened to me on the Moscow Metro). Anyway, it's nearly 140-years-old, and more importantly, it was composed by the Kingdom of Hawaii's last monarch, which is really quite fascinating. Hopefully, this post will give the tune some of the respect that it deserves; I cannot say much more without sounding forced. If this vacuous thread could spawn a lengthy discussion of Hawaii - its culture, its history, its music, its cuisine - I'd be a hapa guy (well, not technically, but at least in spirit).
