Greetings from the Home State of our President

Not Hawaiian myself. Originally from San Bernardino CA. Left a job selling tomato futures, now grow actual tomatoes. And oranges. And mangos. Sell 'em at a local stand here in Hilo on the big island. Less money but more satisfaction! Uh, let's see, fourth-generation Greco-American, twice-divorced, voted for Obama twice and Kerry in 2004. Gun owner, not gun nut. (Hunting rifle and a Smith & Wesson handgun, that's all.) But the most important thing is Kings Rock! Rangers suck! SWEEP, baby, SWEEP!

2. Oh, I had a MAJOR problem with "Family Ties"

 

I mean, the premise sounded great, right? Two ex-hippie parents with 1980s conservative kids? HA! Should've been a riot! But, as it turned out, all of the characters (parents included) were cut from the same Reaganite cloth. The episode that made me check out was the one where Michael and Helise said that they never smoked pot in the sixties! PUH-leeze!

Much of my family is still there. But make no mistake: I greatly prefer it HERE!
