Man vs. Pigs

So I went to feed the dogs for the first time in awhile, and it appears that the pigs have attempted a coup on the place.

This first video shows them guarding the coup (audio a must):

Header Picture… What Buildings are These?

I’ve changed my “Header” on my blog to a new image.

Anyone want to take a guess at what the pale yellow buildings in the background are?

Got Bus Stops?

People have been complaining for a long time about the bus stops all over this island.

In the Hawaiian Beaches area, Fred Blas and the Hawaiian Beaches Action Team have built some lovely bus stops w/out the help of the county or state.

Now people along Highway 130 are starting to resort to making their own bus stops.

Here is a closer view of this particular one:

I know the County currently has plans on building bus stops, but it sure seems like it’s taking a long time to implement them.

In the meantime… people will continue to make their own bus stops along the State Highway.

I wonder how long it will be until we have another Bus Passenger killed while getting on or off the bus?
