Hawaii…

Living here has been nice… We have had company and got out and explored the island with them…

We got to go up to see the crater at the Jagger musuem and now it will be closed forever… it is sliding off into the crater, a little every day…

We opted for Hawaii because we could afford to own a home here… it’s the cheapest island to live on… it is an adjustment living mostly off grid though…

We capture our rain water and filter it and sterilize it via UV… We manage our own waste and we have no internet, except cell phone hot spot and that has gotten sketchy since we lost a tower in the lava flow…

All that being said, summer is the worse for reception and getting on line… our house is just in the right spot for lousy signal and no, there is nothing that can be done… total nerd I am, an I bought this place because of it’s location, so communication was known issue before hand…

All this mumbo jumbo being said… When my connection to the net sits and goes in circles, it’s not worth the hassle to fight to get on an I rarely go anyplace except walks, so checking thing later doesn’t happen either… 

If you want to comment on any of my blogs, it is best to do it here on Word Press… I can get into it’s server easier than I can Face Book or many other sites, because of our unique set up… I am not ignoring you if you comment on face book on my blog… but I warned people before that I can’t always see things on face book and we don’t always get emails… they or the routing gets lost in space, out of my control….

Status of the lava flow is unchanged, it has whiped out over 9,000 acres and over 500 homes… FEMA has stepped in to give assistance… but the people of Hawaii were taking care of their own on the first day of the evacuations… Hawaii the land of the Aloha spirit…

Have a great summer and hopefully when the kids start school again and the tourist slow down, my signal will improve…

I Remember….

Author: maggi9454

My earliest memory is before the age of 2... by the time I was 13, I had no childhood memories... No holidays, no birthdays... On 11/5/17 a shooter in Texas changed all that... It triggered my memories from my 13th year... The Air Force covered it up an it happened in Big Springs, Texas 1967... Domestic violence, PTSD, TBI and I too served in the Air Force 10 years later... This is my story to remember what was stolen...
