More Hubs About Hawai'i
- A Hawaiian Parole of the Will

- Wailua Falls on the Island of Kaua'i
A healthy sense of adventure spiced with calculated risk-taking can certainly elevate a vacation from mundane to memorable. But when skirting the edge of the precipice, ask yourself one question: Is it really worth the risk?
- Makalehua--How I Found My Long Lost Sister on eBay!
It had literally been years since he'd last spoken with, let alone seen, his younger of two sisters. How ironic, then, for this online entrepreneur to finally meet up with her on the gargantuan global marketplace, eBay!
Much like a woman used and scorned, you came
and wreaked destruction on our islands fair
far greater than your mother Nina's claim
full five and twenty years ago. How dare
you seek to imitate atomic blast
and with your banshee wail disrupt the lull
of Paradise? Your ailing ego cast

O'ahu, Kaua'i, and Ni'ihau
as targets for your vengeful Cyclops eye.
Three hundred million dollars plus, your row
has cost, but even as we wonder, Why?--
We dare to stand and reach for heaven's star;
how spirited we island people are.
