Nanakuli

I am still finding it difficult to give things away. There must be some kind of gimmick behind it all. You have to be careful nowadays because salespeople are far different than in my time.

“Being in a minority, even in a minority of one, did not make you mad. There was truth and there was untruth, and if you clung to the truth even against the whole world, you were not mad.”


And the cartoon discovered in the internet. That's Oahu.

So I meet very good people every day on the Waianae Coast.

Pub's Side Note: Three of the most powerful tools for marketing a dance organization's services and products is through their Newsletters, Web and Blog sites. The benefits are many. They keep the organization's Name out in front of potential and current members, the media and Ballroom Dance Professionals. The least expensive PR.

Second City, where?

People are waking up nicely on the Waianae Coast in spite of our legislators that are paid by the Present Rail Party. They are beginning to recognize the items that make a Second City and it cannot be decided by Honolulu. Honolulu is after the Big Bucks only and the hell with the people.

"Truth is like the sun, you can shut it out for a while
but it ain't going away."

First we know that our legislators will never fix Farrington Highway. Gotta pay for the Rail Disaster. So at present we have very heavy traffic going to Honolulu and in the evening we have very heavy traffic come back from Honolulu. Even the Big Bucks people and our Legislators cannot deny that.'


So the Industrial Park is the obvious answer and unfortunately there are Big Bucks willing to stop that nonsense. Can you imagine an small Industrial Park in Mahaha? People going to work from down the coast, maybe as far as Kapolei, on a clear road and everybody else is going the other way. In the evening when Pau work, you are going home on a clear road and the dumb dodos are all going the other way. Anybody picking up on this action?

Do Gooders complain about Minimum Wage jobs. Well let me inform everyone. Minimum wage in Waianae for Waianae residents is worth ten times what it is worth in Honolulu. And I coulda been home in 20 minutes. I am sure that there are people out there that understand that.


I can get the #93 bus at six in the morning in Makaha and be in downtown Honolulu by 7:30, right today. Look it up, when the Rail Calamity is built it will take 2 1/2 to 3 hours to get to downtown. Rapid Transit? Biggest con job every perpetrated on the people of this island. Estimated cost going up to Ten Billion dollars. Easy Money. And the Present Rail Party will be making millions and millions of dollars in profits. It's the dollars, Scholars. It's the bread, Fred. And the people be damned.

People on the North Shore and Windward are going to pay through the nose too. Someone has been rooked? Waianae People are not dumb, they can think and it is coming to pass.

Very Good Indeed

Seems like Waianae is waking up very nicely. There seems to be less drug dealing and more upfront drinking which is legal. The Industrial Park is getting to be noticed for the very high benefits to the working citizens of the community,

The fun spots are still there, and a good Mexican place is Tacos and More.


And at one time they even had dancing. Unfortunately not enough publicity and many people in Kapolei just finding out about it now.

Dancing on the Waianae Coast

Tradition: A method of holding the many back while some person
does the thing which was declared impossible."

And we have many possibles on the Waianae Coast in Recreational Dancing.

Beginning Dancer, knows nothing.

Intermediate Dancer, Aha, knows everything, and is too good to dance with beginners.

Hot Shot Dancer, Knows everything and is too good to dance with anyone.

Experienced Dancer, dances everything, and dances with everyone for the sheer pleasure of moving to the music of their choice. So it is going to take a while to get there.

"Til I Waltz Again With You" by Theresa Brewer 

This entire side of the Island is having big trouble with the Caldwell bus system. But he got elected by hook or by crook, by the Rail
Disaster Party, and we are well aware, its been for the money,
Sonny, so we are stuck with him.


The largest most beautiful dance floor west of the Pecos.

And the other dancers? Are they the same as us? No they are not. They are our entertainers, they practice long and hard to be the best they can. We usually pay to be entertained and if we get it free we should appreciate it. And we should applaud at the appropriate times to show our appreciation. Most of our very nice people.

Opening Up Nicely

Fortunately, there are not too many fancy dancers on the Waianae Coast, so that both men and women can learn a couple dozen movements in each dance and enjoy moving to the music. And American Style of Dance has been our basic cultural dancing for a century.

"We cannot tell the whole truth about anything. That's
a pretty heavy burden, because we all just view the
world through our own little piece of coke bottle."

So the trick in this sector is find a place where people can, and/or have learned the basics in American Style of Dance to standardize the movements. The dancers will be able to not only dance with their fellow dancers in that sector but also throughout the island. That is our culture, the very basic moves and it is our social, recreational dance. We are not going for any prizes.


Careful thought should be exercised since the young would rather assert their differences than their likeness. So we have all accepted that the under/over 30 would be nice since it was established by the young many years ago. From there when you get enough dancers, there will be a naturally dividing range for the under/over 60. These are just natural divisions and there are no strict rules.


So far the only possible places to dance would be the Waianae District Park, with the largest and most beautiful dance floor in the West. They have a very nice Tennis Club too, a friendly group of tennis enthusiasts They have a full calendar throughout the season and also have an active social diary with events for club supporters throughout the year.

If you are interested in tennis, whether or not you are located on the Waianae Coast, make contact to find out how you can participate.

 "A Million To One" - Jimmy Charles

Honolulu City Pililaau Park is shaping up pretty good and we will have to look into soon. Apparently they have had or still have Line Dancing which sounds like a good start for the Coast. Just cannot find anything on the Internet yet.

Pub's Side Note: Fortunately, I am meeting more people that have good speakers on their computers. With some good speakers you can play music that may sound better than your high class stereos. Or a good set of Earphones. I can give them some of my music.

Anybody There?

The Waianae boasts a huge selection of restaurants and dining experiences. Whether it's the famously simple Hawaiian plate lunch you crave, a grilled plate of fresh-caught local shrimp, the casual atmosphere of a lunch wagon or sandwich shop, or the sophistication of fine-dining restaurants, it's all right here.

"Do think that we are facing a crisis in our democracy. As true patriots,
each and every one of us has to speak up, write and change
those in charge. Our democracy depends upon it."

More than 40 dining opportunities await you on the Waianae Coast and include Thai, Japanese, Chinese, Mexican, Hawaiian and Italian fare, as well as a broad selection of coffee shops, shave ice/snack stores, and bars.Then there are is Ko-Olina Resort.


At the beautiful Waianae District Park is the largest dance floor
west of UH Manoa. We cannot find records of this beautiful
dance floor ever been used for dancing. Auwe.

Naturally, you can be rest assured that the bulk of fresh seafood, freshwater shrimp, meat, fruits, vegetables and breads served throughout eateries are mostlty the product of local farming. But unfortunately there are thousands of acres laying fallow for centuries. The owners want too much rent.


Another bad part of living in this Paradise is having to find a job on this side of the Island. And of course the worst thing of all, is the one is Honolulu. Auwe. I coulda been home in 20 minutes. Makaha is so close yet so far because the Present Rail Party needs the big bucks for the Rail Disaster. Millions and Millions of dollars in profits. At present one and half hour Makaha to downtown on the #93 bus. Almost three hours by the Rail Disaster. That is their version of Rapid Transit. It's the bread, Fred.

Slow Moving

I have gone to a few more places and tried to explain our kind of help with the blog. But they think I am selling something. We cannot blame them, that is what has happened to selling in the last few years. They try to scam you one way or another. On the Internet if it says free, be doubly careful. And of course the "Creative Researchers And Producers" are known for their lies.

"Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't
help them, at least don't hurt them."

So far there is only one place that accepts that fact that we are here to help. And that is Kokua Mao and they are there to help the community too.  I tried all over Nanakuli, but it is no go. Once I even offered to take a picture of a "community center" and they recommended not to. Said it was a private place. How about that? A photo from the Street? Needless to say, I will never, ever darken their doors again.


How about this? Can anyone ever imagine something like this someday. And for me I could get home in five minutes.

"I Can Dream, Can't I?" by the Andrews Sisters.


The Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center is a non-profit organization governed by a community that addresses health disparities, improves population health, and reduces health inequalities despite financial and cultural barriers.

This Health Center looms as the biggest organization on the Waianae Coast. And they help an awful lot of people. WCCHC is a healing center that provides accessible and affordable medical and traditional healing services. It is a learning center that offers health career training to ensure a better future for our community. It is also an innovator, using leading edge technology to deliver the highest quality of medical services to our community.

This holistic approach to health care is realized through the organization's commitment to provide accessible, quality, and affordable, comprehensive health care, while preserving native Hawaiian culture and traditions in order to achieve complete wellness.
