February 1, 2015

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

Punalu`u Black Sand Beach

September 4, 2011

While friends were searching for turtles and swimming in the rough water, I sat at my favorite spot to watch the surf pound against the rocks. Just for fun, I shot a short video I thought my readers would enjoy watching (and hearing)! Click here to watch the YouTube – and yes, it was really […]

Wind Farm Cemetery

August 28, 2011

Recently, I have made several trips to the end of South Point Road to show visitors the Southernmost point in the United States. These remnants of a wind farm make me wonder just how environmentally conscious it is to let these stand. New working turbines have been built to take the place of the old […]

Back to School

August 7, 2011

My posts have been primarily about gardening with some cooking, some travel, and some reflection pieces. These topics illustrate my “spare time” hobbies rather than my “day job.” This week, I’ve decided to share with you the way I walk (run?) through my world when I’m not gardening, cooking, traveling, or reflecting. Here is my […]

Fire Dancer on Waikiki

July 14, 2011

Another attraction here is the Hawaiian Fire Dancer. I’ve known young children who were already training, showing great skill. Check out this past Monday’s post to see the Fourth of July fireworks. The fire dance performance took place at the Luau that marked the end of the conference I attended on Waikiki. At one point […]

Fireworks on Waikiki!

July 11, 2011

One week ago we celebrated Fourth of July as a nation. I was attending a conference on Oahu, staying in a hotel on Waikiki. I had a ring-side seat to the fantastic fireworks display. Waiting for the big event, I watched the sun drop down behind the horizon, something we all seem to love – […]

“Wine and Words”

June 15, 2011

If you haven’t checked out Kona Stories, give yourself a treat and stop by. There is much more than books to be found as you cruise through, and comfy chairs where you can relax. Kona Stories was begun five years ago by Brenda Eng and Joy Vogelgesang. They recently moved from Mango Court to the […]

It’s that time of year when I get to show off my students and colleagues as we gathered for the 2011 graduation. This time Hawai`i Community College celebrated 70 years of existence! It’s impossible to describe everything that went on. This particular graduation ceremony was for the West Campus of Hawai`i Community College where I […]

May 18, 2011

In preparation for our 70th Anniversary as Hawai`i Community College, faculty and staff have been making personal kihei to wear for the celebration. A kihei is a rectangular cloak, traditionally tapa, tied in a knot over one shoulder. You will see them being worn in my next post about the 2011 graduation ceremonies. One of […]
