Jody Ballesteros

Remember this face. I remember her coming to work for HMSA five years ago, a young kid. Still is.
Now she is going to be a famous comic. I took this picture of Jody on her last day at work. That was on April 17th. I didn't know she had given notice. I was stunned!
She owes me a dollar. Heck, she can keep it. She'll just have to take off a dollar from my ticket when she appears on Def Comedy shows, or has her own television show.
She'd make it work.
We'll be routing for you Jody. Good luck!

Aloha Don Ho

Auwe, so sad. At first, when I heard that the local talent Don Ho passed away, I thought it was a joke, and a tasteless one at that. Another era marked for history among the islanders. Auwe.

Good-bye Don. You will not so easily be forgotten. I'll still hear your songs in my mind and I'll certainly keep them in my heart. Thanks for the songs that kept my head on straight when I lived on the Mainland. Thanks for the songs that brought me back home.

Sing with the angels.
