What Happens in Vegas, You Will See on My Blog… Eventually!

So I’m heading off to Las Vegas for a “Workation“.  I’m happy to be leaving Hawaii during the last few days leading up to the election day as I can totally ignore things for a while and just return and cast my vote.

Politics is nasty and I haven’t enjoyed folks thinking that because I’m a blogger… that I have influence on politics.

I’ll be updating this site from Vegas during the next few days and bringing up my twitter feed to the top right of this site so those that want to “follow” me closer can.

Blogging from abroad and from my phone… I will begin this journey.

Once I return to Hawaii on Thursday… I’ll be on Oahu for a few days doing a couple things over there.

And to my wife… I left the credit card at home and I love you and thanks for supporting me on my journeys and work!  :wink:

County Offers Home Repair Loans to Low and Moderate Income Residents

From the Mayors Office:

The Residential Emergency Repair Program (RERP) was established by the County of Hawai’i to make low-interest loans available to low-and moderate-income homeowners who are interested in repairing and improving their primary residence.

The RERP loan can be used for roof repairs, electrical and plumbing work, sewer improvements, termite treatment and damages caused by termites or wood rot and the installation of a solar water heating system.

Loans range from $2,500 to $25,000 at 3% interest.  Loan payments are deferred for 15 years at which time full payment will be due.  Applicants 62 years or older or with special needs, may have 30% of the principal balance of the loan forgiven as a grant.   For information contact Dawnelle Forsythe at 959-4642.

It’s a Flash Mob at Aloha Tower

Check it out!  Aloha Tower was the sight of a recent “Flash Mob” and the people participating in it are some of the most unlikely folks that I would think to participate in something this spontaneous.

Normally these “Flash Mob’s” are done to promote something but I just see a bunch of folks having fun!

Well done folks!
