  Hiking, then swimming in those waterfalls, doesn't get much better than that...  Have visited the islands a handful of times -- each time more traffic -- Oahu in particular -- though "Turtle Bay" is quiet; I recommend staying there to anyone interested.

Fewer bird sightings on Kauai than ever last visit.  Heading west too this summer, but a bit more north, BC -- but (always) looking forward to that next island visit.  Kauai is so uniquely noncommercial, at least it was, it's been nearly five years for me. Since your last visit you're going to find it even more built up by comparison, but hopefully still unspoiled enough...

  Much ado about nothing, Inland Empire, and one that embraced a certain nothing-ess  but at least was enjoyable Lost in Translation...

Freakin awesome game last night - the Celtics made the Lakers look like a high school JV squad.  Can't wait for the rolling rally tomorrow!



    So good!  So good!

   Reading is good on the flight over, but I'll be surprised if (all) your noses are in books during the daylight hours while there.  Beauty everywhere !  Enjoy, enjoy!

  Rushdie's writing really shouldn't be missed -- read at least one -- Midnight's Children -- for starters.  I doubt you'd be disappointed.  Kingsolver I've had some pleasure reading, Bean Trees, but PWB's subject didn't hook me, at all.  But, timing is everything, no?

  Of course, you're just looking for a rise, right, Becky?  Or not?

   So far -- great suggestions...thank you!   By the by -- anyone read Rushdie's latest The Enchantress of Florence?

     Too funny, Becky!  Y'know I can picture her with that raw-red nose...it'll come to me -- maybe....

  Bizarre!  Can't imagine -- I detest all and any bug, beetle, spider -- it's whooosh &  smooosh -- no mercy.  I have one extremely kind-hearted chum who literally won't "hurt a fly".  Not me, a certain satisfaction in that crunch or splaaaat, although it took me awhile to do it myself.  But, those big and glossy beetles are tough -- they do crunch and I do hate the feel of that -- even with a (sandaled) foot.   And, trying "green" products to deter the beetles; garlic seems to be having some effect but there are still way too many munching  away....
