Aloha To My Fan(s)

Gee, I'm humbled to think that some of you kept me on your "let me know what you post" page! I am well but just got distracted after over three years of daily blogging on just about everything. One would think that the Presidential and VP nominations and the national elections would stimulate me into doing or writing something! Yet I really don't have anything original to say on this subject at the moment. Let the other wags do it with their well-exercised tongues. The news is mostly good out of Iraq and neither better or worse in Afghanistan (the MSM always seems to be surprised when the Taliban thaws out each Spring and gets its act together for a few forays and assaults each Summer and Fall before going back to their deep freeze for the next five months or so. Don't they even know the cycle of the seasons???)

In any case, Mahalo and Aloha to anyone reading this and who remembers me from the dark ages of blogging. I'd love to hear from any and all of you.

Waipio (Waipahu) Wins the World for Hawaii & the USA

It's been over a year since I have blogged anything at this site. But today I cannot help myself as the town next door to my own (Mililani) has won the Little League World Series . . . beating Mexico, Matamoros in the final championship game today 12 to 3. This is the second time in four years that a local team on Oahu has accomplished this amazing feat.

Many of the kids on this team have gone to the same school that some of the kids in my church attend. Hawaii is a small place and we all feel the joy when someone succeeds and we all share the disappointment together when we fall short. Today is a day for joy! Congratulations to the outstanding players, coaches and parents of our World Champion Waipio Little Leage World Champions!
