Weekly Photo Challange: Community (Local) 2

Never be a food snob. Learn from everyone you meet – the fish guy at your market, the lady at the local diner, farmers, cheese makers. Ask questions, try everything and eat up!  — Rachael Ray

KCC Farmers’ Market is a must stop when you visit Oahu. It’s a great place to get breakfast before or after a Saturday morning hike up Diamond Head since it is directly across from the entrance. And it is also the place to find fresh local jams, jellies, honey, snacks, baked goods, spices, etc. Don’t forget to pack a bag to carry it all.

Be sure to bring cash because some of the vendors do not accept credit cards. It’s a favorite part of my community.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Grand 7

For the weekly photo challenge, Cheri Lucas Rowlands wants us to show our interpretation of grand.

Someone had shaved our Keeshond before we adopted him four weeks ago and initially he was not happy when I pointed the camera at him. With love, frequent grooming, and a better diet including fish oils, his fur is growing back. Do you see how happy he is this week? He is even showing his silly side. His paw is better too with short walks and a glucosamine supplement. My Golden and I think that is grand; don’t you?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Let There Be Light In All Aspects of Your Life 11

This week Ben Huberman requests, “IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO THAT FEATURES A LIGHT SOURCE.”

Multiple sources of light in Honolulu:


Ben also reminds us that we are entering a truly light-filled season, so I wish each of you Happy Holidays whether you celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas, Bodhi Day, or something else.

Bumble and Rudolph

I’m grateful that I have been to Fantasy in Lights at Callaway Gardens twice over the years while visiting my family for the holidays.

Rudolph is still one of my favorites at Christmas despite recent controversy. I always looked forward to seeing it when I was younger. I love Burl Ives and I’ve always loved, “There Is Always Tomorrow.” I think it is important to continue to believe in our dreams. Don’t you?
