This past Saturday, at the King’s Shops of Waikoloa, the Culinary Arts Program of Hawaii Community College (both Hilo and West Hawaii Campuses) offered their annual “Cooking Under the Stars” to the public for spectacular tasting.

A bit of drama was added at the end of the evening as the full moon burst through the clouds to provide a glorious view to our Hawaiian locals and visitors.

Palamanui Update as of December 2014

January 11, 2015

In November of fall semester 2014, I visited our new Palamanui campus. You can look at the slideshow from that trip and read a bit of the school’s history here. Then in December, with all classes and exams complete, our faculty and staff gathered for our annual “end of fall semester” celebration with a potluck. […]

Palamanui – Then and Now

November 15, 2014

On May 19, 2004, a group of instructors from the University Center at West Hawaii were taken on a trip to see the land where a new campus would be built. We went in a convoy of four-wheel drive vehicles. I took quite a few pictures, but two stand out in my mind. The first […]

No Labor Day For All

September 1, 2014

We love Labor Day for giving us that last bit of summer for cookouts, beach trips, one last vacation day, and more. But not everyone gets to take off on Labor Day. You know who you are: • medical personnel at the hospitals • pilots taking you on your trips • clerks in the grocery […]

Iselle on the Leeward Side

August 12, 2014

I know some of my readers are interested in knowing what happened here on the Big Island when Hurricane Iselle hit this past week. Fortunately, I live on the leeward side of the island with two mountains dividing us from the windward side. Iselle’s landfall was in Ka’u District, where Ocean View, Na`alehu and Pahala […]

Sunrise – Sunset

July 29, 2014

When I lived on Guam, I always thought the sunsets were particularly spectacular, and they were. I haven’t seen anything like them anywhere since then. I will find those slides someday and do a post on them. In the meantime, the sunsets (and sunrises) on the Big Island of Hawaii and other places are beautiful, […]

New Home!

July 23, 2014

In 2005 I bought this sweet small house on an acre of land consisting of nothing but a’a lava rock. Then in May of 2008, I started this blog. I began to share photos and write about how that acre of lava was developing (or not developing). Since late spring of this year, I was […]

February 23, 2014

Ever since I made my first post about Lilikoi Butter back in early September of 2009, I have had more than 50 comments on that post alone. When I did “Lilikoi Butter Revisited” in that next summer, I received 26 more comments – a record for any of my posts – and they keep coming. […]

White Rain Lily

January 5, 2014

I planted a few tiny bulbs about five years ago and I always forget they are there. After several nice rains, one little beauty popped its head through for me this morning. It is known for blooming only after rain, and still it is always a surprise when it does bloom. The rest of the […]

Hau`oli Makahiki Hou!

December 31, 2013

This is a repeat of a post I wrote four years ago. Somehow it seemed appropriate to post it again, with an updated year! Tonight at midnight, it will become 2014. I’ve never believed in making resolutions for the New Year. What I like to do instead is set goals, both long-term and short-term. These […]

Tragedy Strikes!

June 28, 2013

I apologize, but I have just had a major crash on my blog. I am in the process of recreating the posts so bear with me. There are posts available for your enjoyment, however, from the beginning up through July 2011. If you missed some of the early posts, this is a good time to […]

An Old Southern Memory

January 15, 2012

The college I attended right after graduating from high school was Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi. I spent the majority of the decade of the fifties in Jackson, a decade of great turmoil in the South. I don’t need to remind you what that decade was all about. My young husband and I went in […]
