Niihau--bad place to crash-land a Japanese bomber, good place for Dole pineapples.

Kaui--rains all the time.

Oahu--I thought it would be bad, but it was worse.

Molokai--they say it's safe to visit now.

Lanai--I think I heard of it sometime or other.

Kahoolwe--heard of it--it looks small.

Maui--favorite R&R spot for English whaling crews.

"Big Island"--lots of black rock and night-time glowing-flowing--awesome.

I might add that Maui is the current home of Minnesota's own Ginger Johnson, one of the two founding members of the "Hula Honeys Hapa Haole Band," and composer of "Not a Whole Lot Happens Here in Hana By the Bay."

Not surprisingly, the ATU crowd has been demanding that I post a clip of Ginger singing "Hana by the Bay."

Unfortunately, the Youtoob has no such clips. Neutral

However, one of Ginger's none-haole wahini fans has posted her own rendition. What a Face

Now playing on Oahu


Hā: BREATH OF LIFE. A STORY OF PASSION, IGNITED BY FIRE, SONG AND DANCE. The symbolic story of Mana and his beloved Lani, punctuated by Polynesian dance, music and blazing fireknives, is told in “Hā: Breath of Life,” a stunning, new evening show featuring over 100 Polynesian natives, special effects, animation and surround sound. It is a Pacific isle saga of birth and death, love and family, triumph and tragedy.

Hilo is home to the Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Corporation, one of the world's leading producers of macadamia nutz

I have no recollection of Hilo, although I must have stayed there at least a night or two. But pinhedz teacher Alphonse Balascione used to play a tune called "Drifting on the Hilo Bay" on his Hawaiian guitar.
