Wordless Wednesday – Cane Spider?

Can anyone tell me if this is a “Cane Spider” that I just found outside my house?

This is the top of it

It was larger then a quarter and if you flattened it’s legs out it easily would have been as big as a half dollar coin.

This was the underneath side of it

I ended up killing it even though they say you shouldn’t kill spiders… I just had to!

Big Island Resident Feels Cheated Out of Pepsi Contest

Quite a few Big Island Residents have applied for funding from the Pepsi Refresh Project.

Yesterday the Three Ring Ranch on the Big Island stated on their  Facebook account:

OK everyone the really big news is the upcoming articles in the NY Times and Chicago Tribune. Be sure you read them sitting down!

So sitting down I read what was up… and it appears they feel cheated by the Pepsi Contest due to some unethical online voting system.

I know for a fact that I was receiving many emails from the Three Ring Ranch asking me to support them in the Pepsi Contest but now apparently they feel cheated out of the national contest:

“…I feel like we were cheated out of a win,” said Ann Goody, a founder of the Three Ring Ranch, an exotic-animal sanctuary in Kona, Hawaii, that participated in the contest for many months. “We worked our hearts out with e-mails, phone calls, Facebook, kids handing out candy canes at Wal-Mart and then we find out our win was stolen from us by people breaking the rules…”
