Recovering Very Nicely

Recovering very nicely from my fall on bicycle in town and I have gotten some pretty photos in Nanaikeola Senior Apartments for a while. Now I spotted several people in the smoking section across that street Kaiser Permanente in the evening. And I got nice photo in the dark, the flash was good enough.

 Millie, Glenn, Joe and Alec, enjoying the fresh evening.

Everything rolling all right in my other blogs except we cannot get this one going. I am going to try again with Pat. She had some trouble last time, so I changed her from Guest Author to Administrator and she did not get on so Google deleted her. I will have to send another invitation right after I am  through with this.

The new dance blog on the block. Few hits but going up slowly. Just have to be patient.

Then I have been getting some news from the Ben Cayetano political front:

Mahalo for making a contribution to the Cayetano for Mayor campaign! By helping to get Ben Cayetano elected, YOU are taking action to stop the ill-advised steel-on-steel rail project.

A Honolulu Advertiser poll conducted in 2009 indicated that 73% of Honolulu residents were under the impression that rail would reduce traffic congestion.  Now, they know the truth.  The Environmental Impact Statement for the project concluded that “traffic congestion with rail will be worse than it is today without rail.”  This, at a cost of more than $5 billion.

Traffic can be more cost-effectively addressed by implementing a Bus Rapid Transit (“BRT”) system.  The savings gained by using BRT will better allow Honolulu taxpayers to contend with paying for billions in mandated sewer reconstruction, assuming costs for fixing our deteriorated roadways, and addressing the many other vital needs of our city.

One of the most important things you can do now to help ensure victory on November 6 is to tell your family and friends the reasons why you support Ben Cayetano, and encourage them to do so as well.   Forward this mahalo note to them!  Ask that they join you in participating in what has become a real movement to prevent Kirk Caldwell from keeping power solely in the hands of labor and big business.  If we work hard together in the coming days, we can put power back in the hands of the people!

Pub's Side Note: We all know that with the #40 bus using tandem buses and a few more C buses what would happen. The Rail ain't gonna beat the time in a million years. And you thought the rich were gonna pay? Ha, Ask Romney and his pals!
