Musings about Kona
My time here in Kailua Kona has come to a consummation and now I look back over nearly three years of experiences and wonder. I love Hawaii. What exactly do I love about Hawaii that makes me grateful that I live here rather than anywhere else on earth? Maybe I'll be able to answer that by the end of this writing. It all started in December of 2006....
I'm so excited as I get off the plane and know that I'm now a resident of the state of Hawaii. The… Continue

Well I did this once already and "POOF" it's gone. So, I'll try again. I left the Wytheville, VA KOA at 0800 hrs this morning. Motored down I-81 into Tenn.. Through Bristol, Knoxville and Chattanooga. I think the area around Wytheville Va is one of the prettiest in the world. (and yes, I have seen quite a bit of the world). It was a beautiful day. Sun shining, sky blue, and road not too crowded. The only downer was the fact that VA seems to have… Continue

Safety and security is on everyone's mind these days. I find these thoughts to be enlightening and comforting, therefore useful for emotional well being.
• You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.
• What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
• The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

in it's purest sense
is a choice
and trustily noticed as happiness.
call me a lazy soul
but i swear it's true
the easiest way
our highest quality of life
is to treat eachother nice.
the more we learn of how we inadvertently
rub against eachother
the more we will understand
at least enough to tolerate
and i for one
certainly do not wish
to be included in a circle of friends

Summer is over. I have had all my annual Doctor and dentist appointments and the results were fine. I have the RV and the Car that I tow behind the RV (refered to as a TOWD) both serviced and humming. I pulled out of the Greenville Family Campground at Haymarket, VA about 11 am today. Headed South. The trip today was pretty uneventful. It was a beautiful sunny day. I decided to spend the night at a KOA at Wytheville, VA. KOAs are usually more expensive than other RV parks. But you can usually… Continue

Simone Davis, a 17 year old British immigrant, was abandoned by her mother while still a baby and now lives with her paternal grandmother in Port St Joe, Florida. Because Simone has refused to take the controversial HPV vaccine, Gardasil, she has been denied citizenship. HPV vaccine is required of all female immigrants to the United States.
In the article "Despite Debate, Reactions to the HPV Vaccine Rare", published in the August 19, 2009, Glove and Mail, it was revealed that 23… Continue

The Alliance for Natural Health-UK has called for an urgent scientific inquiry inot the HPV (human papilloma vaccine) being used in the United States. Pulse of Health Freedom recently wrote of the British teenager denied US citizenship after she refused the Gardasil vaccine, which is required of all female immigrants applying for citizenship.
British health authorities are now investigating the death of a 14 year old British schoolgirl a few hours after she received Cervarix vaccine… Continue

I'm going to keep this brief.
It was so much fun watching the amped up television media make fools of themselves over the Balloon Boy hoax. Any thinking person will understand that our political news is handled the same way.
Now that the entire episode was determined to be a hoax perpetrated by a Colorado family hoping to create interest in a reality TV show about themselves the authorities are trying to determine the appropriate punishment. Let's pile the entire family… Continue

When I was a young man and excitement was clamoring on my back, whispering in my ear that no ill fortune would befall me and death was clearly something that happened, but to other, less fortunate people, there were no mountains to climb in my home town. There were rock faces, although few and far between, and while people did sometimes climb them, they did so only to save themselves from death or being mauled by a bear, not for recreation. Drag and motorcycle races required a substantial… Continue

Deconstruct for the sake of art all the things you think you are, like an old recipe filled with flavor made new to reveal the flavor in you, fuss and fusion, trust your illusion, break it, build it, heat It, repeat it and eat it up cause if you don’t I will....

A note of thanks. I don't think of you often enough. I get caught up in the crazies and malcontents. Its more natural for me to see the world in the light of mad firelight, as I think the primitive world must have been. The stories in Caesar's Gallic Wars of the barbarous Gauls and the rituals of African civilizations have always delighted my eager need to see the paucity of Man. Perhaps the world seems safer if its careening off the table.
But for a moment from the ravages of… Continue

Desiree Jennings, 26, was a healthy Washington Redskins cheerleader who was training for a marathon when she was stricken with permanently debilitating symptoms following a flu shot administered in a local grocery store.
Here's her story in two parts.

I'm concerned about the nature of time. We treat it as a separate dimension, yet it does not behave like the other 3. We don't go back and forth along it, yet we treat it as if we were moving forward. There is no real "forward" motion. My hair does not blow downwind in the time tunnel. Motion is the change of position relative to a non-moving object. But everyone is "moving" at the same speed, so we aren't really moving, are we?? We talk about the past, but we really mean past states. There is… Continue

I would climb
the highest mountains
And swim the deepest seas
Searching for someone
You are the earth, the sea,
And the sky to me,
My world is made for you!
The stars smiled down on me
When I searched the heavens
From end to starry end,…

Perhaps this is better phrased as a question, but since I'm hiding in the blogosphere, I'll phrase it as blog.
I was noticing my NetFlicks RSS feed on my profile page was stale and looked pretty silly. It still shows the last three movies I rented from them and returned unopened. I was curious about Jeeves & Wooster one day and added them to my request list, but by the time they came I had lost interest. I'm a fickle boy.
I cancelled my subscription after that in an… Continue
