Thunderbirds from Afar

Checked out the Thunderbirds performance today but instead of a closeup visit, we decided to watch from afar at a quieter distance. And something’s not right with my camera.

Hawaii’s Mean to the Homeless

Now here’s an interesting distinction… Hawaii is ranked the 8th city meanest to the homeless. I didn’t know such a stat was tracked. But if our state is going to be in the top 10, why not shoot for the top stop? Maybe we can tap the homeless for some pee power. How about making […]

What? Build-A-Bear Closed?

Wow, is that right? Did the Ala Moana location of Build-A-Bear close down? It seemed like we were just there! The Build-A-Bear store locator shows the nearest location is either San Mateo (2386 miles) or Santa Clara (2400 miles away). Oh well, at least we have Luna Lamb and Ovejita.
