I don’t know if it works or not… Just thought it was kind of unusual.

My bet… is that all tea helps with VOG and they are just using the VOG to market this at a much more expensive price.

Public Health Emergencies … Hawaii Sucks, Even Guam and American Samoa are Better!

Here in Hawaii, we  have faced a few “public health emergencies” in the last couple years.

Vog has created havoc for many residents, we recently had the the rat lungworm problem, and currently there is a Swine Flu virus running around.

…Georgia found itself in exotic company recently when federal officials evaluated readiness for public health emergencies.

Tied for sixth-worst among 56 states and territories, Georgia ranked ahead of Hawaii and the Northern Mariana Islands, for example, while trailing Guam and American Samoa.

I truly think Hawaii is a great place to live, but when I read things like our health care crisis, our government layoffs, and our education system… Often times I wonder about the future for my own son.
