The Census Scam? Come On Newspapers… Get it Right

So in today’s Hawaii Tribune, they had an article that was a reprint from the Honolulu Advertiser and it basically starts out on the front page like this:

Ok... so were warned!

But then it goes on to say that you can identify Official Census workers because they will have a hand held device!

Hand Held Devices??? WTF?

I can tell you that none of the Enumerators will have hand held devices.  In fact, we haven’t used them in almost a year now!

So what this article does… is pretty much endangers those real census workers out there.

I do hope a retraction is made soon!

Trippy Trees

I took a picture of these trees that caught my attention last week but I haven’t had much chance to do anything of late so I’m only getting a chance to post this now.

They call this tree a “Money Tree”… I call this the “Money Shot”

Dr. Seuss would be proud of this tree… I wouldn’t want to be a barefooted tree climber though:

Dr. Seuss Tree?

I’m not sure how these trees manage to survive:

There is some trees under there!

Soccer Saturday With the Orange Mangoes

Hayden's getting much better with ball control.

So my son started up soccer again. I’m not able to coach this year, however, the coach and the players decided to call themselves the Orange Mangoes. You can see why!  He scored a goal in this first game of the season which I’m sure is gonna give him confidence for the rest of the season.

Happy Birthday Grandma Su… May Day is Your Day
