In the run-up to daughter Jenna's wedding, Laura Bush earned the nick-name "Mommy-zilla". You remember Laura, don't you? She's the unseen and unheard First Lady - Dubya's wife. I am sure you've seen a picture of her somewhere/sometime over the last 7.5 years. She's probably been the least visible First Lady in modern times.

I recently gave you the central Pacific hurricane forecast for 2008. The one for the Atlantic Basin is out and isn't as rosy.

The Maui Film Festival will be held in Wailea June 11 - 15. I remember when it first started. If you are headed this way, add it to your "must do" list of activities. You won't regret it. All screenings are held outside under the stars.

WOW! The new Indiana Jones movie grossed $25 million on opening day. I wonder what it will make by the end of this 3-day Memorial Day weekend? I can hear it now:
"Kids, we have enough money to go beach for the weekend or go movie. Not both. Whats your pleasure?"
6 ways you're wasting gas and losing money. I drove a Crown Vic (or equivalent) as my cab and with just in-town runs I was still able to average almost 19 mpg. My biggest suggestion is to drive in a manner that requires the least amount of brake usage.

Will your next automotive purchase be a scooter?

Could this be the work of a disgruntled shoe salesperson?
Police said Friday that they don't know if there are any links between the cases of the four severed right feet found on island shorelines in the Vancouver region.
I would say it is highly unlikely that they aren't related. Probably will be the theme of the next teen-slasher movie.

Another airline is near the brink of bankruptcy. And that would hurt Hawaii really bad.

Over The Limit?
Please don't drink and drive

"Let's all be careful out there!"
