    You are welcome Hello, hello. I love going our little town of Laie. I could just stay here for weeks, but of course, I like to go to the big town of Honolulu occasionally.

    @peacegirl101 - I like the new map feature although it is a little tricky. Sometimes it takes me a few tries.

    Thanks Wife Who Saves - I do love it here even though it is a bit expensive - the price you pay to live in paradise. I appreciate your comments.
