    Born and Raised

    I have lived in Hawaii my whole life and love living in a vacation destination because tourists come here from all over the world and their accents are fascinating to me.

    State Popluation Flying

    Growing up, I remember the population for all Hawaii was a bit over 800,000 (now I think it's 1.3 million). Local air carrier Hawaiian Airlines flew 855,000 passengers last month alone. That's like flying my whole childhood State's population.

    Living In Paradise

    I came to Hawaii in 1983, I was stationed at Pearl Harbor. Like most I fell pray to Island fever until I started surfing and making local friends. Today I cant imagine being anywhere else, my time here has been the most enjoyable experiences of my life.

    A little rant- To the military people
