Photo of the Day – Purple Night

This photo was taken at the Four Seasons Lodge at Koele, at night, in Lanai City, Lanai, Hawaii. While we were there, someone was getting married and they had the grounds all lit up for different events. I think this is where the guest book was..

Photo of the Day – Touchdown

Heh. I took this photo shortly after landing at Lanai Airport, in Hawaii. I was thankful to be on the ground. I’m not really a good passenger in a plane where I can see the pilot, let alone, reach out and touch them. But, this Mokulele Airlines Pilot really knew his stuff and made the…

Photo of the Day – Sunrise on the Lanai

It took all week for me to get to see a sunrise. Only because I was on vacation and had no reason to get out of bed before sunrise. Yes, I agree it is beautiful. But, I love my sleep. 🙂

Quote of the Day – Wernher von Braun on Gravity

Our two greatest problems are gravity and paper work. We can lick gravity, but sometimes the paperwork is overwhelming. – Wernher von Braun

Quote of the Day – Jules Verne on the Sea

Today I get to go snorkeling. I am “oh my god”-excited. This is a first for me and I have always been interested in the deep blue and it’s wonderful habitat. Today I get to frolic with them. The sea is everything. It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and…
