Re: Aloha, Tim

Thank you and Merry Christmas! Yeppers, I did the overnight shifts the last three nights. The nurses did a Hawaiian potluck, which was fantastic. Still seems odd to be Christmas and 80 outside!

Well that was quick!


Not really, they really scrutinized me for 4 months. Again, the sales pitch was "hawaii license easy to get and privileges are automatic". Not.

Also, check out the ethnic festivals in Ala Moana Park on the weekends


All good advice, the problem they have here now is a quickly increasing number of homeless, and they gravitate towards ala moana and kakaako areaas. There is [more]

What town in Ohio did you live in again? Just curious. I recall it wasn't anywhere in the Cleveland area, but that's all I remember.

The Baron moves back to Ohio, REtim moves away. What timing. <LOL>

Re: Retiring to Florida?!

Get one of those reverse printed Hawaiian shirts and always ask for the "kama aina" rate on everything. And I mean EVERYTHING, even the 7-11s. They'll immediately know that you're not a tourist and the prices will drop, sometimes quite a [more]

How close are you to the Blowhole?


I'm 7 miles away. I really haven't started exploring, getting hospital privileges/hawaii medical license has been a nightmare. Gotta me the most unfriendly state for docs I have ever been in. [more]
