Talk Story in Hawaii is a Foreign Concept on Mainland

If you are an impatient person, you probably will not like the pace of life in Hawaii. On the mainland, if you wait in a line to ring up a purchase and the person in front of you has finished their transaction, yet stands there talking to the clerk, you might get irritated. Sigh. Shuffle the goods you're holding from one arm to the next. Narrow your eyes in disgust, glancing around to find another sales clerk.

You're in a hurry, damn it. Why don't they stop talking? How rude is this? And you play those tapes over and over in your head until you finally throw your merchandise on the counter and stomp out, muttering you'll never walk into that porn shop again.

But Hawaii is different. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: What Happens When You Talk Story in Hawaii.

My Last 3 Weeks in Hawaii Were Very Productive

This particular trip to Hawaii I did not make it to the beach. The days I had planned to go, it rained. But there will be other days and other trips. It is OK. I was able to focus on my Sacramento real estate business and missed all of the cold… more
Dealing with Icky Gnat Swarms in Hawaii

Ready for Hawaii Big Island Bird Photos?

This is one of those blogs that can go on forever, and it sort of does. So many photos to choose from to feature in my blog, and they have to be pretty good before I'll select them. At least you need to be able to see what kind of bird it is, don't… more
