TRAVEL CHANNEL: Tandem Surfing

Many of my favorite memories are from days I spent with my hanai big brother Brian Keaulana. Brian is a wealth of information when it comes to anything to do with the ocean. The first day I met him, he taught me how to standup paddle, canoe surf and tandem surf.

I felt compelled to write about this place because it was just so wonderfully weird. It’s called the “Hobby Garden” – my mom just created (by that I mean she jack-hammered the ground and built) her own koi pond in the front yard. She needs koi.

I have to admit… this one was not on my list. Sometimes, when you’re on a production you just have to go with what the producers want. Soooo, I did. Kapena falls is a dangerous area – people have died there. The water has the potential to carry leptospirosis and the cliff-jump is unsafe.

TRAVEL CHANNEL: Dirt Biking

I have to admit, dirt biking has never been on my list of things I must do in my lifetime. I like to have a little more “protection” between me the ground and other moving or fixed objects that could cross my path. I’ve always been kind of a scaredy cat…

  Every year I post our Christmas and holiday cards on two rows of strings on our wall. I love receiving Christmas cards, reading them and looking at them! Makes my heart smile to see the smiling faces of family and friends on that wall as I walk up our stairs into our home. When… Read More

The day you need everything to go perfectly, something always goes wrong. Today, I met the CEO of the company I work for – for the FIRST time! … and my sitter didn’t show up. Here is the saga that ensued…

Today, I got an interesting request from a jolly old man. SANTA… as in Claus! Santa contacted me wanting to do something special for the Dukes family. A few days ago, Trucker’s mother, father, siblings and numerous family members and friends shaved…
