Kokua Mau Party

Woke up late on this nice Monday morning, got a cuppa coffee and got on the computah. Checked my email and the other blog info. Showered, got ready and was at Kokua Mau about 11:15 AM. Most things were still in process and we were getting a good variety of nice people.

Have a Blessed and Safe New Year, 2014 - Yvonne & Ohana

"Until you value yourself, you will not value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it."

Went back and forth from my place, getting absent minded but I got most things going eventually. I was hoping someone would know how to operate my android. And I was fortunate. Got a few photos. Even the best four were lousy and so many good people. But hopefully you can all see we need some good photographs.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, 2014 - Stanley Kim


Most have the photos on a memory card. Just send it to me by Email and I will post to the blog of your choice.

Have good Happy Holidays - Nate Augut

 
Happy New Year - Roy Dacuycuy

At least I learned something. The complete opening of the lens had to be done manually. But I had put a little oil and after a few photos it opened and closed very nicely. I just did not notice that the lens were still blurry. I should have cleaned them. 

Happy Birthday, Brock and a Happy New Year, from the Dacuycuy
 
So we wind up 2013. Have a very good 2014

Old Year, New Year

"What's new about the New Year? The New Year is not just a ritual.
It is the celebration of new hopes and dreams. It is an opportunity
to start with a clean slate. The New Year offers us an opportunity
to introspect and anticipate."
 
 
Has been done in other places, but Hawaii??? 
 
 
Could be right in front of Nanakuli. Old cars, then old tires over the cars, then big rocks, then gravel, then dirt and you have an island.
 
"Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors,
and let each new year find you a better person."

Apprentice Wanted

Apprentice Blogger Wanted:

Should reside on Oahu and available to attend a dance function now and then. Information can be submitted by email along with a photo or two. I may furnish a point and shoot camera. The most important factor is that it will be their opinion and their unique viewpoint.

"There are only two kinds of people who are really fascinating;
people who know absolutely everything, and people
who know absolutely nothing.”
 
Within a week or so, they should be able to decide which blog they wish to Guest Author. Of course, it must be their choice, They can then get in, write, include photos, save and publish and get out without saying boo to anyone. They will learn that they can pretty well write whatever they damn well please and whenever they please. The blog just provides the platform. From there it is to help to get more people and eventually making one of the blogs independent and operate on its own with enough guest authors and without me.
 
Looks like  Happy Holidays on the Waianae Coast
 
 
Look like they are moving?
 
So where do we go from here? The first step is a recognition that we are and have all always been in the business of selling? – What? Social Media to our possible readership and our blogs are not seeking money. The key to realizing the promise of our profession is to reinforce it in the science of management and the analytics that measure our performance. But we just want to help and that is difficult to understand. Otherwise we’ll be left to shoot darts at a smaller and smaller portion of an expanding dartboard. We will be patient and we are getting there.

A Good Beginning

Hooray, we got the first approval of a small industrial park in Lualualei. This is spite of all the Present Rail Party and their paid protestors. The city council using some sense. Even if only employing one thousand workers and mostly at minimum wage.

"It is always good to know, if only in passing, nice human beings. It refreshes one like flowers and woods and clear brooks."

The do-gooders think they are doing good when they talk about mostly minimum wage jobs. They talk statistics like most Ivory Towers and never think about the people. Minimum wage for the residents in the area know that minimum wage in Laulualei is worth ten times what it is worth in Honolulu. Big secret unknown to the Ivory Towers. And "I coulda been home in 20 minutes." The 403 Nanakuli bus doing just fine, could have 30 cars missing right in front of each of them.

For those that must go to downtown Honolulu, the Articulated buses would have been the perfect answer. Each one could be missing one hundred cars right in front of them. The drivers? "Sitting Comfortably" in the bus. But the Ivory Towers do not understand "sitting comfortably" They are spouting 'bottom lines" and betray the ignorance of the real situation. Few people know that Vapid Transit will take longer than what we have now.

 
100 cars missing on the street and freeways, right in front of every bus. And "I coulda got the bus right around the corner where I always did."

But, of course, important to the Present Rail Party is the Big Bucks in gravy train profits. All those mainlanders that are being imported are in this scheme. Easy money, and these local yokels can be taken. Starting with the Czar. Every bus driver out there knows more about public transportation on Oahu than Grabauskaus will ever know. But those mainlanders know the Governor (a nothing) the Mayor (another nothing) so take both their salaries and that is about right for the new Czar. Not enough? How about another 100 thousand for living and automobile expenses. And more gravy, they just gave him a 25000 dollar bonus. You'd bettah believe it! It's Easy Money.

Even the Universities on the Mainland are instructing on the "Easy Money" in Honolulu. And who is going to pay for this mess? The people on the Waianae Coast will be first. These local yokels can be taken.

To all Do Gooders: Thousands of acres of Ag land on Oahu,
use it, no talk.

City Council Passed It.

I was surprised after the Present Rail Party got all those protestors against the industrial park in Nanakuli. Gotta force more people to ride the Rail Calamity to Honolulu. They talk agriculture and they know not what they do. Take a good look around and you will see thousands of acres of land all over Oahu laying fallow and not being used for anything. Just waiting for the price to go up.

"I would not favour a fiction to keep a whole world out of hell. The
hell that a lie would keep any man out of is doubtless the very
best place for him to go to. It is truth ... that saves the world."
~ George MacDonald

The people here have a different perspective. I live in Nanakuli and minimum wage in Nanakuli is worth ten times more than what it is worth in Honolulu. I don't have to spend half my life commuting because somebody is talking statistics on non existing agriculture. Very possible that I coulda been home in 20 minutes and spend time with my family.


The beautiful Waipio Industrial Park. The residents that live nearby kiss the ground every day. Even if you could have planted Pineapples there.

For those that drive, coming from Kapolei, will be going to work when the other side is packed going to Honolulu. When pau hana, they would drive on the clear lanes while the other side would be packed with people coming home from Honolulu. But there are those who were paid to talk statistics about non existing agriculture. The Present Rail Party will try to force everyone to use the Rail Fiasco. Millions and millions of dollars in profits, in just building Rail Stations. And I coulda got the bus right around the corner where I always got it.


Just a few more of these would have done it. But we all know now, about the big bucks in the Rail Disaster.

The Makakilo, Kapolei, Honokai Hale board got that right in voting against the Rail Tragedy. Wake up fellow citizens, don't talk foolish about agriculture, use what you got now, but use it. No talk.

Kaena Point to Mokuleia

So I found out the road to Kaena Point is pretty rough. The Waianae mountains come right down to the shore line and they continually have ruble rolling down to the road. There were plans to clear this road all the way around to Mokuleia on the North Shore for last year, But the Present Rail Party voted it down. and that cancelled that. Some people cover it in a Jeep but that can prove dangerous too.


Kaena Point from shore along Yohohama Bay.

Can anyone realize what a bonanza that would be for all the citizens of the Waianae Coast and the North Shore?. But downtown Honolulu insists on their dues first. Big Bucks like the Rail Disaster are overdue for them. Millions and Millions of Dollars.

 
Waianae Coast purty all the way up and down.
 
The female field mouse got all ready to meet her boyfriend across the field at 5pm. As she went across the field she got caught in the Farmer's Reaper. But she was able to wobbled over to where her boyfriend was waiting and he took one look at her ragged state and asked, "What happened honey?"
She replied, "I've been reaped."
 
 
Either in Mokuleia or Makaha, could be reached by both. Live, work
and play in Kaena Point area. Whatta life! Honolulu? Nice place
to visit, close by, maybe every three months or so.

Nanakuli

Like most places on the Waianae Coast there are plenty of individualists. In this photo apparently, a person bought the lots from Farrington and back a little ways. Instead of waiting of a street, he built the houses and made his own alley that you could drive down. The entire thing is very pleasing specially because of its uniqueness. It should have a name. What is it?


“Criticism is the disapproval of people, not for you having your faults,
but having faults different from their own.”


Doing such a great job at helping the handicapped.
Apparently everyone had a nice Thanksgiving
now getting ready for a nice Christmas.
 
Pub's Side Note:
One hundred years from now, it will not matter what my bank account was. The kind of apartment I lived in, or the kind of car I drove. But our little dance world on Oahu will be just a little different because I made some effort.
