    Poll: Re: Popcorn

    With my air popper I seldom have more than 5 "old maids" (split, but not fully "popped") in a full bowl, and that's with cheap "Western Family" brand popcorn.

    Poll: Re: Popcorn

    Air popped, with olive oil (E.V.O.O.!) and salt. Occasionally with chili powder.

    For a while I was using olive oil and the green tobasco sauce.

    Used to use loads of Lowry's seasoning salt when...

    Re: Caching in March

    In Hilo the only restaurant I really like is Miyo's, which is simple Japanese type food. Ken's House of Pancakes is fun on occasion - it's not great, just fun and hearty. The waffles at Bear's...
  8. Re: My cost of living estimate and getting an apartment?

    I don't think you can get a 3BR home for $900 a month in Hilo unless it's in the slums and you get the roaches and rats to chip in on the rent. $1200 is the base rate for a 2 bedroom home in Hilo...

    Re: Saddle Road Update

    No. The drivers are just that bad here.

    Isn't that defunct? I thought that place was before Clementes, which is also defunct. Some people seem to like Paolo's in Pahoa, if you have the money.
