    I've just spoken to a friend of Susie's who talked to her on the phone a week ago. He said she is fine, but still without her computer.

    Re: Oahu hikes -- Suggestions!

    There's a beautiful trail in the southern Waianae range, going up Palehua to Palikea. The Nature Conservancy used to manage it, but I believe it's been handed over to the state.

    Re: Rare Wolf Moon for 01/29/10

    It was beautiful this side of the world too - I saw it rising over a hill as I drove home from work, and it looked enormous. And the sky was clear all night. We had a hard frost this morning.

    Re: Help with a Hawaiian Phrase

    There's the song 'Sanoe' as well. The Cazimeros translate it as 'mist' - which I think ordinarily would be 'noe'?
