Unofficial Polls

I linked 3 polls in the races that I’m most interested in on the sidebar to the right. I will leave these up until November 3rd. (Sorry to the two people that voted while I was still adjusting the settings… however those two people will need to recast their vote if they chose to have it counted)

I have made it so that each person from an IP address can only vote once. (Sorry in advance to those families that have multiple voters using the same computer… this is not a scientific poll so don’t get bent out of shape if someone at your location has already voted in this poll)

Thanks for participating.

P.S. to view the current results, click on View Results… Not the Polldaddy link.

Big Island Needs to Put on it’s Smiling Faces During the Week of September 15th – 19th

A group of women professionals, the Women In Tourism International Alliance, who are promoters of tourism industry throughout the world, will be conferencing on the Big Island from Sept. 15th – 19th.

Energy Consumption, Utilities, and Capita… Something Has to Give

Hawaii is the most expensive state to live in and pay Utilities.

Despite the fact that, per capita, energy consumption in Hawaii is among the lowest in the nation.

Clothing Optional Beaches Ranked… Kehena Snuffed

Maui’s Little Beach was recently ranked 6th in a recent Top 10 lists of clothes optional places.
