What does it take to be a GREAT PHOTOGRAPHER in HAWAII??? Well, LONNIE MCKENZIE will be the first to tell you…it takes a HELL OF A LOT! I myself am a Photographer and it wasn’t easy when I first moved here to make ends meet…Lonnie and I know to make it in Photography if you live in Hawaii is going to take a lot of effort because the turth is…EVERYONE wants to be a photographer here…and the scariest part of that is everyone thinks they are actually good at what they do…sadly that is honestly NOT the case. May it be schooling or self-taught you need to realize it’s going to take a special talent to make it here… Continue reading
Homelessness in Hawaii is a SERIOUS ISSUE for the islands…Not only are Locals and Kama’aina upset about this, but Travelers and Vacationers are angry about…to the point that they won’t be coming back and they will be telling others not to go to Hawaii either! We touched on Homelessness, but we never really dove into being Homeless in Hawaii to the extent we do today in this podcast, but there are many reasons for homelessness…some are well known as they are also happening on the mainland, but one is central here in Hawaii that contributes to not only Homelessness, but to SERIOUS DEBT for the average ohana here in Hawaii…HOUSING! from affordable housing to affordable rentals…THINGS NEED TO CHANGE! Drugs and Mental illness only compounds these issues… Continue reading
A continuing problem here in Hawaii has been the confusion when it comes to PETS in Hawaii…ONE, getting your Pet to Hawaii and TWO, finding a rental that will take your pet in. The way PET QUARANTINE works has changed over the many years. At one time you had to wait like 120 days, but today with enough advanced planning quarantine can be almost avoided entirely from 5 days or even less. This will make relocated your family member that much easier…to look at the new QUARANTINE LAWS and RULES go here: http://hdoa.hawaii.gov/ai/aqs/animal-quarantine-information-page/ The other major issues is finding a RENTAL…there are so mnay reasons why this has become a very touchy subject for Landlords and Renters and we talk about it in this Podcast.

The main focus of this weeks Podcast is to not only cover the TOP TEN BEACHES OF HAWAII…but of EACH ISLAND…but before we do we go HEAVY on some LOCAL HAWAIIAN NEWS…from what’s happening on Oahu to Kauai and the other islands…We talk about several MAJOR issues like GMO’s and Bringing BILLS to the floor to stop them…and the use of the VETO to the few to stop these PONO Bills from getting through for the GOOD OF THE PEOPLE! We also get into a heavy debate on making it law in Hawaii for SAME-SEX MARRIAGE…This is a MAJOR issue for Bruce and I and we have a passion for the rights of all people as humans, not as gay, straight, black, white, christian or muslim…but as two people having the right love each other and have equal rights…PERIOD! Continue reading
This has been a crazy week and Bruce and I have settled down finally…We wanted to cover questions that all of you had about Hawaii…we had some good ones, but wished we had more. I guess you could say this was one of our shorter Podcats as we really wanted it to be for you guys, but the podcast ended up being half for us to just “TALK STORY” about what’s happening in Hawaii with some news items, interesting stories and Halloween coming up. These Podcasts are a luxury for our listeners and we are very thankful for those who donate to keep it going…I think having a podcast like this for everyone out there in Hawaii and on the mainland is a very helpful tool Bruce and I never had…This Podcast can be used to the viewers advantage, but you actually need to use it.
Next week I think we’ll be doing a live podcast and even dress up in something for Halloween…give us some time to have fun, maybe even talk about some scary stories Bruce and I have had in our lifetimes…We’ll also have some fun subjects to talk about as we’ll be doing our next podcast on HALLOWEEN! BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Holidays in Hawaii is a huge thing, but with most well known Holidays they usually come during the winter season here in Hawaii. As most know Hawaii has TWO SEASONS…Winter and Summer…that’s it! No coming into FALL or going into SPRING…it is what it is…and without transition seasons it can be a sort of SHOCK for many who are use to four seasons which allow us to have an easy transition into Winter and into Summer. The truth is Holidays are different here and you need to get excited about them or you could just go on living in paradise and just watch them go by without notice! Now there are 14 Holidays in Hawaii and 4 of them are Holidays on in HAWAII so it’s nice to get these days off, but it’s also important you understand why you get them off…it’s about respecting the culture here and the History of Hawaii.

Who doesn’t love Wild life? Wild life just sparks interest…it gets us excited…it opens up our world that there is something more important out there…it gives us joy, it gives us hope…HUMPBACK WHALES do just that…The transition of the Humpbacks from Alaska to Hawaii is an amazing journey and it’s a story that takes place in time for millions of years. So what are Humpbacks? The humpback whale is the fifth largest of the world’s great whales. The fact that Humpbacks was once widely sighted off the coast of New England it has got it’s nickname of “Big-Winged New Englander.” It’s common English name of humpback appears to come from the animal’s tendency to round its back when diving. The humpback whale is grayish-navy blue in color, with pale to white undersides that can show black markings that are varied according to the individual whale. It is with these markings, and particularly those found on the tail, that individual whales can be identified and the population and migratory patterns recorded. Humpback whales also have pectoral fins which are located on each side of their bodies. Continue reading
We all have fears and they are not just about Hawaii…they are about life in general. Fear is one of, if not “THE” one thing that holds us back from reaching our dreams and goals…It is the “MIND KILLER” the destroyer of dreams. We all know this and if you have a fear for something prepare to go to battle with your mind. Your mind controls all that you do, there is a natural defense set up in that mind of yours to ensure you don’t do something that can hurt yourself and that is where the FEAR FACTOR comes in…Your mind takes over to protect your mind and your body…it’s not until you shut off the mind that you will be capable of “DOING ALL THINGS”.

Today we go deep into the GREAT FOOD TRUCKS of Hawai’i Nei as we learn where the Food trucks of Hawaii started, their history and where they stand today with local comedian and radio personality LANAI TABURA of the “GREAT FOOD TRUCK RACE” on the Food Network.
