Pearl Harbor memorials

Thinking of Pearl Harbor a bit since yesterday, I find myself reading again the names of the sailors and marines killed on December 7, 1942. When we visited last June I just stood there inside the Arizona Memorial wondering about these men. I eventually took a photo so I’d have a reminder of them and their sacrifice. Did any of you have friends or relatives killed at Pearl Harbor that fateful day?

The second best reason to visit Hawaii

The 100% Kona coffee! At Foodland it was affordable. At Whole Check Foods it was outrageously priced, I think, $14 for a 7 ounce bag. I think I paid $10.50 at Foodland and it is just as delicious! I just didn’t get to carry around the Whole Check Foods bag. Here in Madison you can’t even find the 100% Kona. Such is the sad state of the People’s Paradise on the Shores of Mendota. ;-)

Down the street, round the corner and there it was

We had a chance to get away for a little vacation last week. We got up bright and early Friday and headed to the airport (which has to be one of the nicest small airports in the country) for our jaunt across the country and a little bit more. We started off with a 30 minute flight to Minneapolis, an hour to change planes, a three and a half hour flight to San Francisco and a two and a half hour layover there and finally five and a half hours to Honolulu and forty minutes to get to our hotel. It was dark by the time we got there and we were beat. But the next morning we got up bright and early. We headed out, down the street, round the corner to the marina and there it was, ol’ Diamond Head just waiting for us. We quickly forgot about that long trip from Madison.
