I have been lurking for a few weeks now, found your blog through Typepad. Just wanted to let you know I really enjoy reading Ha Ha Ha! Mostly because of the Hawaii tie, I was born and raised in Kailua (Oahu), but also 'cause I'm inspired by your eating and workout entries.

"Not, no can! Can!" brought back memories from my childhood - thanks!

Hi Rae:
It makes me feel good that you enjoy the blog. I had good fun with the speech. We're real local style. Aloha

Great Speech! I bet that makes a difference in the graduates.....

Did you wear pants for the occasion?

Oh, by the way, I figured out why we came up with a time difference in your last post....you used accounting math!

I did wear pants. Oh, you meant long pants? As you know I wear short pants everywhere. But, because this was a very special event, I made an exception and wore long pants.
Based on how I felt going to the gym for the first time since Oct 2000. I should have guessed that it was six and a half years ago rather than the five and a half years ago that I wrote.
Like the veteran accountant told me when I told him that I had an accounting degree; "that's why you're dangerous!!" I guess, he was right.

Long Pants!!!? Wow! it really was special then! did you point that out to the new graduates?


Yes, it was very special for me to wear long pants. It was maybe the second time this year. But, the school dignitaries felt that it was so special that they wore funny cardboard hats with tassels and long purple robes that looked like it made their body temperatures go up 10 degrees. In that light, I couldn't bring myself to highlight my sacrifice.

This "Can" attitude is probably the most important "idea" for the next decade on Planet Earth. It will be the time when we begin to solve some of the environmental and social problems that have been building in America over the past century. If we look around and think, wow, the adults have really screwed things up and we no can fix them, we will have nothing to give to our children and our children's children. We can all raise our consciousness and see what the right thing is to do now. We can all take on something we feel passionate about and see it through, we can all learn to live more simply and use less resources, we can all learn to recycle what we are given. We can, we can!

Nancy you are an important leader on the Big Island. I am proud to call you my friend!!
