Do You Check Your Links? Re: Poinography Blog

To the person that asked me if I check my links on my site and that the Poinography blog is dead…

Go jump in a lake!

My guess is that Doug at Poinography has taken some time off (yes a long time off) and is probably working on something much more important then blogging.

If you would actually read some of the content of his site… you will find, that he is/was/ and still will be one of the better bloggers in the state.

Just because I link to a site that hasn’t been updated in awhile… doesn’t mean I don’t know what’s going on with my own blog.

Pfft… by the way… funny how the person telling me this doesn’t even have a blog of their own that I know of.

Maybe if you read more of Poinography… you would realize that it extends to more then the first page… pfft!

Question… Would You Fork Out $240.00 a Year for Online News?

eBay founder Pierre Omidyar has had a soft launch with his new attempt at making news profitable online with the Honolulu Civil Beat and I myself am pretty disappointed that it isn’t going to feature neighbor island news at this time.

I sure won’t be paying $240.00 a year to basically be allowed to make comments on the site… However, what I could do… is simply take snippets of their news and allow any Joe Blow that wants… to make the comments on my site for free.

So I ask the question… would you be willing to pay $240.00 a year to billionaire Omidyar to run what at this point, just looks like a contributory news site run by folks that were hand selected by the billionaire?

New 1994 Footage of Kilauea Erupting… The Best I’ve Ever Seen

This Footage was taken in 1994:

Molten lava mixes with seawater, producing spectacular fountains of spatter, and fascinating bubble bursts. The bubbles stretch and rapidly cool, forming Peles Hair and Limu o Pele.

Videographer: JJ. Camera with telephoto lens was set up far away to capture footage from this rare and short-lived event. Current conditions are very different; visitors & scientists must remain in government-designated areas to view lava safely…

11th Annual Waimea Healthy KeikiFest

Media Release:

The 11th Annual Waimea Healthy KeikiFest will feature more than 20 hands-on activities for keiki, ages 3 to 12. While keiki have fun learning about growing up safe and healthy, they’ll earn credits they can use to make a Mother’s Day gift and jump in a bouncer. Saturday, May 1st, from 10 am to 1 pm at the Parker Ranch Center.

Eleven ears ago, parents organized the Waimea Healthy KeikiFest as a way to share information about safety and health in fun and engaging ways. In the first few years, KeikiFest was held in the Waimea School Cafeteria. When this annual community event outgrew the Waimea School cafeteria, Parker Ranch Center graciously stepped in to host KeikiFest.

All the activities continue to be free.

Keiki Fest is presented by Tutu’s House, which is a project of Friends of the Future, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. For more information visit www.TutusHouse.org or call 885-6777.
