There’s nothing like food to get your attention!

Well, it works for me. The topic of food seems like a great way to start a person writing, too! As you can see, I seem to have decided that blogging is a semi-annual thing, or a quarterly thing at best. Based on previously posted items, the former seems to be the adopted definition. So, let’s talk about food; I am always willing to talk about that!

June, I read somewhere, was National Fruits and Vegetables Month! I found that acclamation again — San Mateo Public Library confirms it! They have a beautiful picture to go along with sharing this foodie holiday.

So what? What does this have to do with Honolulu? Well, there is this little “business” that was sitting right in my own backyard, so to speak. O'ahu Fresh logoIf you live on O’ahu, doesn’t the logo on the left look just a little familiar? I’ve seen the van and I thought they delivered to the stores, grocery and otherwise but I was wrong. They deliver to us!

O’ahu Fresh gathers local-grown produce and delivers the items they gather in a bag of goodies to you either every week or every other week, depending on how often you want them. If you work in Downtown Honolulu just pick a spot where they already drop off the bags and add yourself to the list. That’s what I did.

I even called O’ahu Fresh to change my order from bi-monthly to weekly because, “June is Fruit and Vegetable Month!” I was aiming to share this here on Homespun Honolulu because food it such a great topic and O’ahu Fresh would benefit from my blabbering, and I could learn how to make new things, and, um, well, it’s JULY! O’ahu Fresh still benefits, local readers still benefit, I have already learned new veggie things, I am still excited about it, I have a new friend over at Oceanit (where I pick up my bag) so the only one to suffer really is Fruit and Vegetable Month. Oh well.

Local produce

O’ahu Fresh has managed to introduce me to some weird things — things that you can actually eat. “What’s that? Never heard of them!” They may be grown here but they are new to me! Fortunately, the O’ahu Fresh website tells you, every week, what is in the bag that week. The best part is they provide definitions for the strange items and links to recipes for all the items!

Do not let the oddities scare you — if you have your pick-up spot close to work, you can always find someone at work who will eat what you will not, or cannot. I hate tomatoes. I hate cucumbers. I hate lychee. Between taste and texture they are all out the door for me. Blech! However, I have found a recipe that works very nicely with cucumber and I found a recipe for katsup! I love ketchup! There are a lot of recipes for catsup! There are even more recipes for ketchup than there are spellings!

With O’ahu Fresh you are not stuck with just produce. They will bring you dairy products, jams and jellies, coffees and teas, and even meats, if you want to add any of those items to your bag. These are all locally grown items which means that beef is free-ranging, grass-eating cattle (compliments of the Big Island farmers)! They have actually, recently, mentioned fresh fish!

Be still my heart with those dairy products and the beef that is as healthy as you can get beef to be! Love fresh produce, I love my home, therefore, I love O’ahu Fresh! Coming up I will share recipes (mine or theirs) and keep it all with local-grown Aloha in the process. Maybe I will be lucky enough to meet up with some of their farmer partners — that would be cool! 馃檪

Native American attractions in Honolulu

Don’t happen often enough! When it does, I always seem to miss it.

I have been very drawn to the Native American culture over the last five years or so. 聽Unfortunately, I always seem to be in the wrong place when they have an event.聽 I’ve never seen anything like it!

On my way home the other day I saw something out of the corner of my eye.聽 “That looks like… I think… it IS!聽 It’s a teepee!聽 They’re there!”聽 How fast can you cross three lanes of Beretania Street without killing yourself or getting a ticket?聽 Don’t ask, I just did.

Indian architecture that caught my attention.

I just had to!聽 I had to find out more, to know more about a culture that continues to elude me. Native Americans share heartaches that are not dissimilar to those of Native Hawaiians.

Brightly-colored, tradtional dress.

My heart goes out to them and seeing, learning, and sharing in the beauty of their culture means so much to me. Perhaps the fact that they are so geographically removed from Honolulu just adds to the mystique.

Ovwer the years they have assimilated quietly here and they have become part of our society’s makeup. I just want to “know” them.

Ring dance.

I had to understand what the above activity was all about so, I asked!聽 I was told that this is a healing dance done to help those who are ailing. Each ring respresents whatever ails you.

Youngster very skilled with the rings.

I was amazed at the agility and ability with which the rings can be handled and the spheres that the dancer above was able to create.


Anyone would feel better after watching this!

Feathers and beads make for some fascinating traditional dress!
Cultural fascinations in traditional dress.

I must admit, I did take a lot of pictures. It was hard to resist! Traditional dress is often very colorful and the feathers just make it all the more fascinating!

The little ones are dancers too!

The little ones get involved as well.

I couldn鈥檛 get enough of admiring the cultural dress and wishing I knew more aobut the meaning.

This afternoon was all about my desire to understand more of the culture and customs of our Native Americans.聽 The good part of this visit was that I got myself added to their notification list so, hopefully, I will know well ahead of time when these events are about to take place!

A flyer to tell you all about powwow etiquette!

What did I take away from this?聽 Pow wow etiquette!

Indian ornament.Little buffalo to bring good luck.

It would be a good thing to put together a list of questions for the next time I’m lucky enough to run into this!

Thank you in Cherokee.

Many thanks go out to the various participants for sharing their culture with everyone!聽 I’m looking forward to the next pow wow!

We’re Baa-ack!

Staring up at a palm tree makes you dizzy.To anyone who has tried to visit recently, I am so very sorry! My blog’s version of WordPress ( was so badly outdated that when my darling ISP flipped a security switch, Homespun Honolulu was suddenly deprecated into oblivion! OMG, there were error messages everywhere!

Interesting word — deprecate.

dep路re路cate (dpr-kt)
tr.v. de路pre路cat路ed, de路pre路cat路ing, de路pre路cates
1. To express disapproval of; deplore.
2. To belittle; depreciate.
3. Computer Science To mark (a component of a software standard) as obsolete to warn against its use in the future so that it may be phased out.

Based on the way I felt when I realized this dilemma, any one of those three definitions would have fit quite nicely! But, since the third one is the most appropriate, I guess we will just go with that one.

I did not do the original framework for this blog when it started some five-plus years ago. Jon Symons, whom I will now call my Canadian friend, formerly of Home Turf Media, has since moved on to bigger and better things! Now the President of Jigsaw Online Media Inc., he is a little too busy these days to deal with such things as deprecated blogs. As luck would have it, Jon in Canada was kind enough to steer me in the direction of a nice gentleman in the UK to help me! Keep in mind that I’m in Honolulu. My ISP is in Arizona, I think. Time difference? You betcha!

I need to send out a huge “Mahalo!” to Jon Symons for starting me out so long ago and for continuing to help keep me active. Jon referred me to this very akamai (smart) and cool new friend, Simon Glover, in the UK.

Simon (aka SiMatt — long story) was just who I needed and he was a blogger’s miracle to be sure! Brilliant! Thank you so very much, Mr. Glover, 馃檪 for having the patience and the know-how to deal with all of this! I would have pulled out all of my hair in frustration and I was already out of tears over it all.

Last but certainly not least, I have to send out a very warm “Aloha & Mahalo!” to, my darling ISP, who had to endure phone call after phone call from me to deal with all of this. They flipped the switch, yes, but I could not get mad at them for protecting all of their customers from hackers and other potential security issues.

“Fine! Help me fix it!” They did. staff went beyond the call time and time again, trust me, to help me help Simon to get this fixed! GoDaddy is the cream of the crop for me. That is why they are on the sidebar!

Let’s see, we went bouncing around from Honolulu to Canada to England to Arizona and back to Honolulu. I think I can safely say that Homespun Honolulu has done its best, albeit not successfully, to go global! 馃檪

Now Homespun needs a “facelift” and I sincerely hope my new friend, SiMatt in England, will continue to assist me for at least a little while longer. I can feel a blog carnival on the horizon gang! Start thinking of your Hawaii stories that you want to share! 馃檪

Honolulu Welcomes the Dragon!

Chinese dragonKung Hei Fat Choi!

Every year I wait for the sounds of those drums!聽 Whenever I hear them I follow the sound, grab my camera, and grab my wallet for dollar bills, or $5 bills if I am in a good mood and feeling the need for whatever prosperity the Chinese New Year will bring.

We are closing the year of the Rabbit and welcoming in the year of the Dragon.聽 I love dragons.聽 I’m more prone to the Old World dragons that guard castles and nest on piles of gold and jewels but, like I said to someone last week, a dragon is a dragon and I’ll take whatever I can get!

No, I am not superstitious and, no, I do not follow the teachings of the zodiac.聽 However, I have to admit that there is often some truth and accuracy to the things they say about our character traits.聽 Besides, it’s fun.聽 You can take it with a grain of salt but it is a heck of a lot of fun to see how things fit the people you know!

Chinese drums move down Fort Street in Downtown Honolulu

There is just something about the sound of those drums, when they are done right, that just triggers something.聽 Of all Asian art and culture, Chinese lion and dragon dances surpass it all for me.

Lions dance and spectators offer money for bring good luck and prosperity for the coming year.

The best part of Downtown Honolulu at this time of year is that it is so very close to China Town.聽 Businesses frequently enlist this rite to chase away evil spirits from their doorways.聽 Hopefully I will run into more of them this year than I did last.聽 I do not want to wait another year to hear those drums and watch this cultural marvel unfold.聽 Firecrackers included!

STRIKE! Perhaps this will send a message…

… if enough people participate.聽 You might be surprised at how many people/sites that will be participating.聽 Here is the scoop:

January 18th is going to be amazing. Sites are striking in all different ways, but they are united by this: do the biggest thing you possibly can, and drive contacts to Congress. Put this on your site or automate it by putting this JS into your header, which will start the blackout at 8AM EST and end at 8PM EST.

Websites: How to Strike

  1. Black out your website for 12 hours with this page’s HTML, or by putting this Javascript into your site’s theme. Tucows is doing this and so is BoingBoing.
  2. Other people have made tools to strike. Some other ways to strike:
  3. Don’t be silent that day. Tweet all day from your official company account (#SOPASTRIKE) and share news on sites like reddit. You will get much love in return from your users, and the bigger the action you do, the more love you will be feeling 馃檪 – You can follow us on twitter for news as the strike gets closer. If you are really feeling shy, you can blackout your site logo / add STOP SOPA messages wherever you can.

Everyone: Prepare to Strike

  1. If you have a Twitter account, tweet about the #SOPASTRIKE and ask your followers to get ready. You can follow us on twitter for news as the strike gets closer. Go to Blackout SOPA to add 鈥楽TOP SOPA鈥 to your Twitter image.
  2. Post this SOPA Strike page to your Facebook account by clicking here.
  3. Get ready for January 18th! Email and tweet at your friends, tell them to tell everyone about the strike. When the day comes, call Congress, tweet like crazy (#SOPASTRIKE), and help the strike appear everywhere!

On Jan 24th, Congress will vote to pass internet censorship in the Senate, even though the vast majority of Americans are opposed. We need to kill the bill – PIPA in the Senate and SOPA in the House – to protect our rights to free speech, privacy, and prosperity. We need internet companies to follow Reddit’s lead and stand up for the web, as we internet users are doing every day.

Um, that’s tomorrow gang.聽 So, if your favorite site is down, now you know why!聽 Follow the links and send your protests!聽 Tell Congress NOT to mess with OUR Internet!聽 聽

Happy New Year Carnival!

A perfect yellow hibiscus blowing in the breeze.Welcome to the first 2012 edition of the Carnival of Aloha!聽 I was surprised to hear that more than 70% of Americans were very happy to put 2011 behind them.聽 Really?聽 You mean I’m not alone?聽 It was a rough year for many of us, and in many ways.

Yaro Starak, the blogger’s favorite entrepreneur, had a hell of a 2011!聽 He calls it, My Most Challenging Year Part I: When Family Tragedy Strikes that he posted over at the Entrepreneurs-Journey.聽 I can certainly relate although I am not as open to talking about these things brought to us in 2011 like Yaro is.聽 No, Yaro did not send this to me for the Carnival and no, it has nothing to do with Hawai’i.聽 It was in my Inbox because I am subscribed to one of his lists.聽 This could not have been more timely.聽 His post certainly helps me make my case for wishing a speedy aloha to 2011.聽 Thank you, Yaro, for helping me with that.

I know I’m ready to move on into this new year with hopes of a much gentler outcome.聽 Chinese New Year at the end of this month will be welcoming in the Year of the Dragon and I am looking forward to having that Dragon come roaring onto the scene!

Great news!聽 We are already starting out on a much more positive note!聽 Hmmm… I guess we’re eating seafood for this Carnival.

Karen happily shares Squid, Fish and I, Oh My Or Fishing in Waikiki posted at kareninhonolulu, saying, “my latest blog from my trip to Waikiki this New Years Morning. It’s a fun blog to start off the year.”聽 I don’t know if any of those squid made it to the hot coals that morning but we’ll go with it.聽 Karen was relaxing but I have to tell you guys that she is the hostess with the mostest over at Bishop Museum — we’ll talk about that later!

I know the calamari lovers are starting to salivate out there so I’m really glad we have a remedy for what these much-loved delicacies leave behind.

Sheila helps us freshen our breath!聽 Aloha Friday Photo: SPAM Breath Mints? posted at Hawaii Vacation Blog –, saying, “Well, since you suggested it, here’s the SPAM mints post. 馃檪 These crack me up!”聽 I confess, I did suggest this would be fun to share.聽 Besides, what is more Hawaii than SPAM?聽 Thank you, Sheila, for sharing this crazy breath freshener!聽 I can see how a Pez could look like a slice of SPAM.聽 Works for me!

Santa makes an appearance at the Russian Orthodox parish.You may think our next post is not too timely but I beg to differ.聽 The old-calendar Orthodox just celebrated Christmas last weekend so this is perfect timing!聽 Santa Claus even stopped by on his way back to the North Pole!

Gigi wishes everyone Merry Christmas from Hawaii posted at gigi-hawaii, saying, “Wishing you a very happy and healthy New Year!!!”聽 We can’t argue with that!聽 Gigi also shares some truly wonderful photos with us from earlier in the year when she visited the Big Island of Hawaii.聽 They are beautiful photos indeed.

Our “Happy New Year!” continues with what is culturally traditional.

Kay starts the New Year off by buying Kadomatsu for Mom that she tells us about over at Musings.聽聽 This was another case of perfect timing — I had just been thinking about these items because they have, once again, started appearing in all the stores.聽 They are very pretty and they are a cultural tradition!聽 It’s great to be educated like this.聽 Thanks, Kay!

Now that we’re full and festive, you know I have to share a little bit of Mr. TenBruggencate’s intellect and continue to educate all of us.

Jan TenBruggencate has shared yet another bit of scientific knowledge over at Raising Islands鈥揌awai鈥檌 science and environment.聽 Our bees have been a concern for quite some time and Jan sends yet another warning when he says, “A solution to honeybee Colony Collapse Disorder? Doubt it.”聽 I have been wanting to talk about our bees for quite some time and I am so grateful for these insights.聽 This way, I can sound intelligent when I approach our local bee keepers.聽 We just won’t tell them how I got so smart.聽 Shhh!聽 Let’s just hope the New Year brings good news to our bee colonies!

Just to add to my weirdness, I’ve started a new endeavor to add to the Honolulu mix.聽 My friend Karen who fed us fish and squid at the beginning of the Carnival sounded almost excited when I told her about this one so it made me just brave enough to share it with all of you.

Evelyn (my strange self) wants to share a new development.聽 Well, it is not really all that new.聽 It has been brewing for several years actually.聽 I just finally found something to do with my strange fixation.聽 It’s a… well… it’s a… a graveyard blog!聽 It’s what I do during my times of Resting Reveries.聽 I just provided the link to the blog because there isn’t much to it, yet.聽 It is amazing just how much history is contained in those stones!聽 You can click on the circle with the rabbit and you will find that there are a lot of people out there who are fascinated by the graveyards, the history, and the genealogy!聽 So I get to talk about some Hawaiian history from time to time — sounds like a good idea to me!聽 Don’t you think?

Happy New Year, everyone!聽 This concludes this chapter of our ongoing Hawai’i blog Carnival. Submit your blog article to the next edition of Carnival of Aloha using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.

What the camera sees, and I miss!

You know those pictures that you take and there’s more there than meets the eye?聽 You know, the ones where you don’t see anything unusual until you get it home and look at it more carefully.聽 Just before Christmas, I was getting some exercise and was on my way to the nearby 7-11 Store for some water.

Photo of an historic cannon in downtown Honolulu.

Well, I thought this cannon was fascinating so I tucked my wallet under my arm and took several snap shots before I decided I would continue on my way to 7-11.聽 I was really thirsty!聽 I’m glad I stopped to take these pictures because one of them worked as a great prop for announcing the upcoming Carnival of Aloha.

While I was trimming the photos and selecting the one I liked the best, I saw that one very important item that the camera saw but I missed at the time these photos were taken.聽 It reminded me that I had not shared this with you guys yet.

See, I went to 7-11 and took a bottle of water out of the fridge.聽 I took it to the cashier and suddenly, “Nooooooo!聽 Where’s my wallet?!?”聽 I knew that I had dropped it somewhere between that cannon and the store.聽 I ran back, looking at the ground the whole way.聽 “It’s gone, it’s gone!聽 Don’t let this happen now, not right before Christmas!”

My wallet!

I got back to the cannon and, thank goodness, there it was!聽 It was broad daylight but nobody saw it!聽 My little flowered wallet with its little Chinese bell was sitting right there where I had dropped it while trying to take a decent photo.

Go ahead, scroll back up.聽 You know you want to!聽 You’ll see it right there.聽 I missed it completely when I snapped the pictures — I had to be sure I got the whole cannon in the shot.聽 Focusing on the ground was not part of the plan for these photos.

Talk about lucky!聽 My advice?聽 If it does not have a handle, leave it in your bag until you get where you’re going!聽 The cashier will wait for you to dig it back out again, trust me.聽 When I got back to the store they got a good laugh out of it all but I was nicely freaked for the rest of the afternoon!

New Year’s Carnival coming soon!

Calling all Bloggers!聽 Don’t forget to send in your posts about Hawai’i to the Carnival of Aloha!聽 Let’s blast into the New Year!

Cannon to shoot us into the New Year!

Feel free to share your articles about any island, any topic, any reason — if it’s Hawai’i specific, you’re in!聽 We will post it the week after New Year’s聽 so you can send in your posts about your New Year’s celebration too, if you would like!

The deadline is January 7, 2012 so be sure to send one in now or tickle your calendar so you don’t forget!聽 Submit a link to your post of choice using this Blog Carnival form and help us all kiss a another not-always-so-wonderful year good-bye!

Is it open season on O’ahu’s bloggers?

It certainly seems to be open season on our health!聽 Oddly enough, separate and apart from each other, we have had unexpected health issues catch several of us by surprise.聽 I put off sharing mine to see where things were going to go but when I saw the other ladies having issues too, it seemed that now might be a good time.

In keeping with the theme of this blog, I will tell you a bit about my drama and then share my take on the wonderful local businesses that helped me get through the beginnings of what will be an ongoing battle.聽 A few regular readers may remember this horrible post about my bloody incident.聽 Yes, I tripped and fell but the reality is that my left foot wasn’t fast enough to recover and catch itself, and the rest of me before it was too late.

Apparently I have “Drop Foot” (or “Foot Drop” — I’ve seen it called both) that causes my foot to not snap back the way it is supposed to when I walk.聽 Hence I trip a lot.聽 Those five stitches from that bloody incident were the last straw.聽 I did a Google search to find out what runners do if they have drop foot.聽 Sure enough, I am not alone.

Allard USA lets you 鈥淕et Your Life Back!Several people spoke of an AFO (ankle foot orthosis) device called “Toe Off” made by Allard USA.聽 Exciting news!聽 I made a long distance call to their offices and they told me all about it.聽 They then told me they couldn’t sell it to me directly.聽 I would have to work through a company that works on orthotics and prosthetics since they do not sell these things retail. Irritating, yes, but they do that to be sure you get fitted correctly.

This little darling that helps you “Get Your Life Back” is actually manufactured in Sweden.聽 Hey, they have mountains to climb over there!聽 One of their flyers actually shows a gentleman wearing this while mountain climbing.聽 I can run with this, too!聽 Right?聽 Allard says yes you can.

Okay, so who do I know in Honolulu? 聽 Where do I go?聽 Mom always depended heavily on CR Newton so that name was very familiar to me.聽 While they do have a reputation for being a bit pricey, they also know what they’re doing!

The side of a van makes the best advertisement!

The conversation went something like this:

“Yes, you can get one through us.聽 Do you have a prescription?”

“No.聽 Why, do I need one?”

“No but you’ll have to pay for it out of pocket otherwise.”

Long story short, my medical coverage has no DME (durable medical equipment) rider so I was on my own.聽 “Okay, how much?”聽 I braced myself for what I assumed would be a 3 or 4 hundred dollar quote.聽 It turned out to be about three times that amount.聽 Gulp!

I know what you’re thinking but, knowing that this was going to be my own out-of-pocket expense, CR Newton matched the lower price of a competitor.聽 “Really?”聽 Did I cry when I heard that?聽 You bet!

I got my Bluerocker Toe Off!

So, I got it!聽 Randy at CR Newton got the Toe Off over here, fitted it for me, and聽tweaked it for me about a week later.聽 He聽kept in contact with me and asked that I call him and report on any developments, problems, etc.聽 He asked that I聽keep him informed.聽

Sending out a huge “Mahalo!” to CR Newton and Randy Pang for their assistance with this, er, development.

Now I wear it almost every day and I have聽gone running with聽it.聽 The Great Aloha Run is going to be very interesting this year.聽 Last year I could barely make it back to my car, the pain was so severe.聽 I have an appointment with a therapist who is in the know about these things over at Kaiser right after Christmas.

Not the prettiest fashion statement but who cares?I sort of need to teach myself how to walk correctly again.聽 Sigh.聽 My body was compensating too much and聽has聽taken on very聽bad, pain-inflicting habits. 聽

Okay, so this device is not the greatest fashion statement but when you need to walk without cracking your head open or聽causing other聽related leg injuries,聽it really doesn’t matter!聽 For this, vanity flies right out the window!

I decided to share this聽because聽two other local bloggers have run into even scarier health issues where vanity is the least of their worries.

Gigi over at Gigi-Hawaii says, Enough of this Sad Story! Gigi, like me, is dealing with a uncooperative nervous system.聽 We’re irritated, no doubt about that, but we are fighting arduously against this nonsense to maintain both our lifestyle as well as our quality of life, no matter what!

Kay, in her Musings, says it’s One of Those Days as she deals with the threat of one of my worse nightmares.聽 “At least let me keep the one beautiful body part that I have?!?”聽 There goes the vanity thing again, sorry.聽 The reality is, I don’t like those call backs to the doctor’s office and I don’t think Kay does either!

Gigi and Kay, I will keep both of you in my prayers and, no matter what, we will keep “talking” until our fingers stop working!聽 There’s hope on our highways too!

Keyboard where blogging happens.

We should check in on each other from time to time and see how we’re doing聽— hold cyber hands and hope that it all stops here!聽聽

I know, Gigi, that we have residual left overs from these things but I want them to stop here and not get any worse, and maybe even get a little better!聽聽 Please?

We bloggers聽need to get out there and share our island’s fun and craziness, therefore, we need to be healthy and mobile!聽 NO MORE DRAMA!聽 Come on ladies, let’s get our lives back!
