In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

Blogging Note

Dear Blowhards --

We're off to Maui for a week starting tomorrow (the 21st), so posting might be light or even non-existent if my cell phone Internet connection doesn't function where we'll be staying.

This family trip was set up last September before the stock market cratered, but we're doing it anyway.

I've only been to the Honolulu area, so Maui will be totally new for me. Nancy probably will be spending most of the time with her granddaughters. But we'll have two rental cars (there are eight of us), so I ought to be able to find time to explore the place, something I enjoy doing.

Of course, you must do the "road to Hana" drive and ride a bike down Haleakala! Enjoy!

Wade -- Yeah, sure.

Eat at Mala! Best restaurant in Maui, and nowhere near the most expensive.

I'm not really a tropics guy, but, man, you gotta have a nice cheeseburger and a Longboard Lager at Cheeseburgers In Paradise in Lahaina....very nice setting.

Check out the Iao Valley Park — remarkable scenery even for a very scenic island. It's only a short drive from the airport. Lahaina is interesting, if ultra-touristy. I love the banyan tree downtown that covers an area the size of a city block!
