The Silent Drill Team… Wow!

My wife has a couple cousins that were on the drill team in High School and used to do stuff like this… but nothing like this!

Could you imagine seeing this in person?

Yes, I know this video is kind of old… but the Coast Guard Channel is starting a new series on what it takes and they show these buggahs and I say with all the Military folks that live in Hawaii… they should come to Hawaii and perform here!

Island Dairy to “Pamper” Cows with “Waterbeds” to Get Better Milk Production

A Cow "Waterbed"

Put this under the strange and weird category:

…The company (Island Dairy) said the pampered cow approach has produced measurable results.They cited reports from the Mainland that cows with waterbeds installed in their barns are producing 10 percent to 20 percent more milk.

Island Dairy is on the Hamakua Coast of the Big Island, in Ookala…

…The dairy’s continued growth is welcome news to the state’s agricultural community after decades of decline and the end of O’ahu-produced milk.

The dairy’s plans mean that O’ahu, Maui and Kaua’i residents may be able to buy local milk in stores for the first time in years. The fresh milk is currently distributed to Whole Foods, Foodland and Sack-N-Save…

…It has yet to be seen if Island Dairy cows will prefer Hawaiian music over classical.
