The stark beauty of the rugged landscape of a lava field in Hawaii Volcano National Park.

Ladies and Gentlemen,
It is official, my home computer went to the grave.  It died!  However, it did live a long life and traveled with me.  The computer was a gift that was sent to me in Colorado from Hawaii in 2004.  Then, it traveled to Seattle, Hawaii, Utah, Tennessee and Nebraska.  Now, I have to figure out how to remove the hard drive to retrieve information from it.  Mainly pictures and things I've written for Conservation Council for Hawaii.  So, we'll see what happens with that.
Well, that computer lived a very long life of 8 years.  So, what is that 400 in computer years?
Until I find a new computer my posts will be without pictures.  **sigh**

That's all for now.

Hiya, it's me. Just a short post until I get up and running again.

Happy New Year!
I know it's been awhile.
I've had an exciting new year so far.  Here's a brief of what's been happening in my neck of the woods.

I fought the flu.
Then had several chipped and cracked teeth.
Had a blind date that never happened.
A broken toilet tank.
Six weeks of chronic disease awareness classes.
Walking three times a week with a new walking partner.
Visiting a new church with a old lady friend.
Had a pitbull dog growl at me in my yard (new neighbors).
Lost a dress size.
Helping a friend cope with a FUCC (fraudulent use of credit card).
Saving money for a TIN number.
Applying as a vendor (juried) for a AlohaFest in Colorado.
Camera problems (unsolved).
Computer problems (need a new computer).
Went whale watching.
Got addicted to self serve frozen yogurt shops.
Created a couple of new designs.
And have a hundred stuck in my memory bank (my head).

It has been an exciting first two months of 2012.   How has your 2012 been for you?

Once I solve my computer and camera issues I will be back to regular posting.
Until then, take care and God Bless.
