Rise and Shine!

Yellow hibiscusIt’s Tuesday, so you can shine. As long as it’s not Monday!  There are just a few tidbits this morning.

First of all, yesterday we lost yet another pedestrian. This brings the number of pedestrian fatalities so far this year up to 12. Still the battle continues as drivers and pedestrians become more belligerent and continue to cop attitudes about the whole scene.

Don Ho’s funeral services are planned for May 5th. His ashes will be paddled out by canoe and scattered just offshore of Queen’s Surf Beach in Waikiki.

Kaiser has done absolutely nothing to correct their parking oversight.

On a lighter note, the surf’s up! On the Northshore of Oahu the waves are reaching 12 to 15 feet. On the West side (Makaha) we have 6 to 10 foot waves. Makapu’u is at 4 to 7 feet and Diamond Head is bringing up the rear with 2 to 4 footers. There were a couple of marine warnings for small crafts, etc., so be careful.

Don’t forget to help me name my category! “I need to come up with a new category for posts about things that have made me angry, upset, etc.”

    Awww, it is such a shame how drivers react out there. Rushing around and looking only one way to get to nowhere, thus in the process they end up seriously hurting or killing someone. We have that happen here in British Columbia often. It happens on a daily basis and it makes me sick to my stomach. On some intersections it happens so often as it is deemed unsafe but it seems nothing is done until so many people are killed or injured. Oh the ways of the city officials and it only angers me. Slow down people! Wonderful site you have here!

    Thank you, Michele, for seeing the gravity of it all! I thought we were getting better, but, it doesn’t look like it. Your intersections sound really scary! Please come back and visit whenever you can — hopefully the news will get better. 🙂
