I was so happy when I first found out that there was going to be a brand new Apple store opening up on the strip in Waikiki and even more happy when I moved into town. Now that I live in town I am a literal 5 minute bike ride from the Apple store. I’m ecstatic about this store.
I live streamed the event and you can find the videos and photos below:

There are attractive garden plants that repel mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are horrible creatures that swarm around you and suck your blood. They cause itchy rashes and can carry disease.
The most common way of repelling or getting rid of mosquitoes involves spraying a large quantity of poisonous chemicals in your yard and on yourself. If you are interested in a more natural approach, consider these plants that repel mosquitoes.
At least one good thing has come since the beginning of this whole ‘Subprime Meltdown’ fiasco. I don’t like Countrywide, let me dig around in the archives here, I’ve had a rough history with them. As a formal employee I can say that this brings a smile to me.
“If enough financial pressure is placed on Countrywide or if the market loses confidence in its ability to function properly then the model can break, leading to an effective insolvency,” Bruce wrote. “If liquidations occur in a weak market, then it is possible for Countrywide to go bankrupt.”
“Superman, Batman, Captain American and a slew of other superheroes have something in common besides funny-looking tights. They were all created by Jews, many from Eastern European backgrounds.”

In a zoo in California , a mother tiger gave birth to a rare set of triplet tiger cubs. Unfortunately, due to complications in the pregnancy, the cubs were born prematurely and due to their tiny size, they died shortly after birth.
The mother tiger after recovering from the delivery, suddenly started to decline in health, although physically she was fine. The veterinarians felt that the loss of her litter had caused the tigress to fall into a depression. The doctors decided that if the tigress could surrogate another mother’s cubs, perhaps she would improve.
After checking with many other zoos across the country, the depressing news was that there were no tiger cubs of the right age to introduce to the mourning mother. The veter inarians decided to try something that had never been tried in a zoo environment. Sometimes a mother of one species will take on the care of a different species. The only orphans” that could be found quickly, were a litter of weaner pigs. The zoo keepers and vets wrapped the piglets in tiger skin and placed the babies around the mother tiger
Would they become cubs or pork chops?
Take a look…….. you won’t believe your eyes!
I pretty much can’t wait….
This number is the ‘key’ to crack the HD-DVD encryption so that you can effectively, with the right software, copy and duplicate HD-DVD discs. HD-DVD and Blueray discs were announced to be practically unhackable. Of course, we all know that nothing digital is safe. I will be updating this post with many posts of this crazy phenomenon. When the news article arose it was placed on www.digg.com which is a news aggregating website. I sometimes get some nifty tech stories from this site. The code was put up but then taken down in an effort of censorship. This made the ‘geek’ community quite angry because they couldn’t believe that the website that they used to expose everything from corporate frauds to useless Japaneses inventions was now working against them. Then chaos ensued. Even this morning as my friend Kara watched NBC news the video was interrupted by the above code which flashed for several seconds before coming down and displaying the original picture. Don’t make geeks angry because secretly they rule the world.
What happens around the world in one day? In a word Ã¢â‚¬â€œ life. Here on Flickr, photographers are sharing what they see: snapping daily moments, recording history, telling stories, capturing beauty.
To celebrate this global community, we invite you to join us in “24 Hours of Flickr” Ã¢â‚¬â€œ a day-long global photo project. On May 5, 2007, grab your camera and whatever else you need, and chronicle your day in pictures. The group’s photos will be featured at Flickr events around the world this summer and in a companion book, which will contain a selection of photographs chosen from the group (more about this soon!).

Kane meaning man/male. Hula is the dance. Hula for guys sounds sissy but it really isn’t it. I actually want to start taking hula lessons after this summer. Here are a couple of examples of some Male Hula Dancers at the annual Merry Monarch competition on the Big Island.
This one is really cool too but it takes a couple of minutes to get into it:
