The Hawaii Files

Hi, The Don,

Here's a couple more shots I thought you might be interested in.  The first is the "Judge's Station" for one of the "Grand Slam of World Surfing" competitions taking place on Sunset Beach on the North Shore:
100_0630
The second, again shows the raw beauty of the islands, and is a little island just off the west coast of Oahu affectionately known as "Chinaman's Hat" because, you guessed it - it looks like the old hats the early Chinese immigrant labourers used to wear while working in the sugar cane fields in Hawaii.

Cheers,

Jim Starko
Hawaii

SINC SAYS:

Thanks Jim, man the skies are blue over there in that top photo. That sure is a tiny little island.

The Set Up
On their way home after celebrating their 25th anniversary, the wife thanks her husband for a wonderful evening.

"Oh, it's not over yet," says he.

Once in the house, he gives her a little black velvet box.

She opens it in anticipation and finds two little white pills.

"What in the world are these?" she asks.

"Aspirin," he replies.

"But I don't have a headache," says she.

"GOTCHA!" he replies.

Pickle Juice And Other Wonders For Runners

pickle_juice_rocks_tshirt-p235503296124031437z85y8_400
His running buddies call him "Doctor Pickle Juice." Rick Ganzi, a 47-year-old anesthesiologist from Holland, Mich., has long been singing the praises of pickle juice after discovering that the briny beverage worked wonders for his marathon-induced muscle cramps.

Dr. Rick Ganzi, aka Doctor Pickle Juice, says drinking the salty beverage improved his marathon time.
Ganzi got hooked on running during his medical residency to shed some unwanted pounds. But when trying to improve his marathon time, he found his calves knotting up around mile 20. Then a coworker, who was also a competitive body builder, tipped him off about using pickle juice to prevent cramps before an event.

Read more about pickle juice and seven other unconventional ways that runners hope to boost their energy, improve their performance or speed their post-race recovery.

The Martin Jetpack

To demonstrate flight high above the ground and the concept of the ballistic parachute as an emergency safety system, the Martin Jetpack was flown to around 1500m (5000ft), brought down from this height and an off-the-shelf ballistic parachute was deployed.The aircraft was flown by James via radio control in a chasing helicopter - also demonstrating the ability of the technology to apply to UAV applications. Jetson, Martin Aircraft Company's weighted dummy was on board, and the parachute was placed out front for visibility and weight balancing.The video features inventor Glenn Martin and RC pilot James Bowker. The jetpack ascended initially at 4m/s (800ft/min) and the climb took about 6 minutes. The parachute was deployed at around 3000ft above ground level. The aircraft sustained some damage on impact, but we would expect that it is likely a pilot would have walked away from this emergency landing. The total flight was just under 10 minutes.

Winnie The Poo, All Grown Up

Winnie The Poo Grown Up
A group of kindergartners were trying very hard to become accustomed to the first grade. The biggest hurdle they faced was that the teacher insisted on no baby talk! You need to use 'Big People' words,' she was always reminding them.

She asked John what he had done over the weekend?

'I went to visit my Nana'.

'No, you went to visit your grandmother. Use 'Big People' words!'

She then asked Mitchell what he had done 'I took a ride on a choo-choo'.

She said. 'No, you took a ride on a train. You must remember to use 'Big People' words'.

She then asked little Alex what he had done? 'I read a book' he replied.

That's wonderful!' the teacher said.

'What book did you read?'

Alex thought real hard about it, then puffed out his chest with great pride and said, 'Winnie the Shit'.

Coffee At Timmy's

I was in Tim Horton's recently when I suddenly realized I desperately needed to fart.

The music was really loud so I timed my fart with the beat of the music.

After a couple of songs I started to feel better. I finished my coffee and noticed that everyone was staring at me.

I suddenly remembered I was listening to my iPod.

And how was your day?

The Present

The Present
A young man, called Chris, from London wanted to buy a present for his new girlfriend.

They hadn't been seeing each other for very long and she lived in Scotland .

Chris consulted with his sister and decided, after careful consideration, that a pair of good quality gloves would strike the right note, not too romantic and not too personal.

Off he went with his sister to Harrods and they selected a dainty pair of fur lined quality leather gloves. His sister bought a pair of sexy knickers for herself at the same time.

Harrods had a free gift wrap offer but the assistant mixed up the two items, the sister got the gloves and Chris unknowingly got the knickers.

Good old Chris sent off his gift wrapped present in a parcel with the following letter.

Dear Maggie,

I chose these because I've noticed that you are not wearing any when we go out in the evenings. If it had not been for my sister I would have chosen the long ones with buttons, but she wears shorter ones (which are easier to remove).

These are a very delicate shade, but the lady I bought them from showed me the pair she had been wearing for the past three weeks and I hardly noticed any marks.

I had her try yours on for me and she looked really smart in them even though they were a little bit tight on her. She also said that they rub against her ring which helps keep it clean. In fact she hasn't needed to wash it since she began wearing them.

I wish I was there to put them on for you the first time, as no doubt many other hands will touch them before I have a chance to see you again.

When you take them off remember to blow into them a little bit because they will be naturally a little damp from wearing.

Just imagine how many times my lips will kiss them during the coming year.

I hope you will wear them for me on our next date.

All my love,

Chris

P.S. My mum tells me that the latest style is to wear them folded down with a little bit of fur showing.

A Little Taste Of Hawaii With The Aloha Kids

Hello The Don,

Today Bob and I and my cousin and her husband from Winnipeg took The Bus and hiked from the bus stop at the base of the Diamond Head Crater all the way to the top.  My pedometer tells me it is about 5,000 steps each way.  The Diamond Head compound is built into the crater of an extinct volcano and, of course, during WWII it was a major U.S. Army installation on Oahu.  The military is still active there today.

100_0740
The shot above is a little hamburger stand they have inside the crater at the base, just before you start hiking upward.  Look at the name.  Neat, eh? (Editor's Note: The Starko's dog is named 'Magoo'.) 

100_0744
This shot, above, is taken from just about the summit of the crater of some beach houses and the Pacific Ocean.  Those houses probably go for somewhere between $5 - 10 million.

100_0746The last shot is the view from the top of Diamond Head looking back toward Waikiki Beach and the fourth is a shot of one of the numerous Army bunkers that are built right into the mountain.  You have to go through three or four of these small bunkers to get to the summit.

Cheers,

Jim and Bob
The Aloha Kids

Chicken Surprise

chicken surprise
A couple go for a meal at a Chinese restaurant and order the 'Chicken Surprise', and the waiter brings the meal, served in a lidded cast iron pot.

Just as the wife is about to serve herself, the lid of the pot rises slightly and she briefly sees two beady little eyes looking around before the lid slams back down.

'Good grief, did you see that?' she asks her husband. He hadn't, so she asks him to look in the pot. He reaches for it and again the lid rises, and he sees two little eyes looking around before it slams down. Rather perturbed, he calls the waiter over, explains what is happening, and demands an explanation.

'Please sir,' says the waiter, 'What you order?'

The husband replies, 'Chicken Surprise.'

'Ah! So sorry,' says the waiter, 'I bring you Peeking Duck!'

Who Knew?

For icy door steps in freezing temperatures: Get warm water and put Dawn dish washing liquid in it. Pour it all over the steps. They won't refreeze.

To remove old wax from a glass candle holder, put it in the freezer for a few hours. Then take the candle holder out and turn it upside down. The wax will fall out.

Crayon marks on walls? This worked wonderfully! A damp rag, dipped in baking soda. Comes off with little effort (elbow grease that is!).

Bits 'N Pieces From St. Albert's Place Readers

They Are Ruining Our National Park

* The recent approval of the Skywalk project in Jasper National Park brought these comments:

Columbia_Icefield_in_Jasper_NP-IMG_2704_3_-985x762
Don,

The best thing that those of us who oppose it is DO NOT GO THERE. Encourage everyone we know to not go there. If the numbers are small enough perhaps they will not approve such a foolish edifice in the future. Or it may be like Servus Place and they will serve Starbuck's coffee to make an extra buck or two!

Disappointed
St. Albert

SINC SAYS:

The Feds need their heads examined for allowing such commercialization in our national parks. It stinks.


Readers Smell A Set-up By The City

ServusPhoto exterior
* Councillor Roger Lemieux's column, "Servus Place a facility to take pride in", in the St. Albert Leader brought these comments:

I thought you would get a real kick out of this I read online! What is Lemieux smoking anyhow?

P.S. Check out the
editorial cartoon in the St. Albert Leader Thursday. What a hoot and how true! Occifer Crouse.

Need A Vacation
St. Albert

Hey Sinc,

What's going on with the city trying to make $ervu$ Place look good? First in the Leader on Thursday, councillor Lemieux tries to sell the idea it's a good thing, then
in the Gazette on Saturday some out-of-towner who just happens to work on a city committee does the very same thing. If you ask me, it looks like a set-up, doesn't it?

Not Foolin' Me
St. Albert

SINC SAYS:

The column is obviously pure propaganda intended to try and make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. As for that other letter, it only raises suspicion that the city is somehow involved in trying to convince us that $ervu$ Place is worth the tax burden. I call foul based on just too much coincidence. If it's so good and citizens love it so much, why does it lose about a million bucks every single year with zero improvement in many years?


That's One Big Fish!

40 Foot Shark Feb7_12
* This 40 foot shark was found dead in the Arabian Sea near the city of Karachi, Pakistan. The fishermen charging 20 rupees (22 cents) to view the fish. The police had to step in to restore order due to the influx of people who wanted to see the creature. They estimated weight is 20 tonnes.

Paul C
Edmonton

SINC SAYS:

That's one heck of a big fish Paul.

Folks, we are honoured and excited to have

WENDELL FERGUSON

Join us for this night.

Seven time CCMA guitar player of the year, 2006 CCMA album of the year nominee, and a JUNO nominee. Also hosted the CCMA'S with Paul Brandt in 2005. He is touring through Alberta and will be sitting in on guitar and performing a mini accoustic set.

February 14

VALENTINES JAM

GERALD MOELLERING (Guitar) AND

STEVE HARTLEY (Guitar and vocals)

and a very special guest appearance by

WENDELL FERGUSON (Guitar and vocals)

GERALD
- A guitarist I have been wanting to get onto the Tuesday Moosehead Show for a while. I have had an opportunity to appear at a few jam sessions on stage with Gerald and watched him perform with his current band Paula Perro and No Foolin'. Gerald has a great knack for timing and tasty fill-in guitar breaks. Great tone and shows a lot of respect to fellow players on stage live. Gerald's influences include Robin Ford, Albert King, and John Mayall just to name a few. Gerald was the guitarist, along side Truck-Randy big daddy Forsberg on bass, as Bo Diddley's back up band. Gerald also does sideman work with the band Chain of Fools occasionally. Website here.

STEVE - It has been a while featuring this popular local singer. Steve is diligent with his musical work and was a huge help to us in building St. Albert's live music scene. He has appeared at festivals and stages across western Canada in the past 10 years mostly with his band Trainwreck. Regular appearances in rock and blues rooms or festivals keeps him busy. I have recognized Steve as one of the gutsiest, in your face, lets just do this thing, performers on stage live. Keep an eye and ear out for his band Trainwreck. Website here.

WENDELL - I am very excited to have Wendell popping in on us to sit in with our night . Thank you Charlie Deshane for getting us hooked up. Folks this musician has won the CCMA guitarist of the year so many times (seven) that they have retired him from the award. He was also nominated for the album of the year in 2006 and hosted the CCMA's in 2005 with Paul Brandt. Wendell has spent years backing and recording with many, many big name artists. One of Canada's finest, Wendell is passing through and we are very excited to have this very respected performer join us for some fun time jammin'. Visit his website and check it out. We invite you to come enjoy a valentines night jam with your special one.

The World's 10 Best Sandwiches

The World's 10 Best Sandwiches
Imagine a world without sandwiches. Where we glumly sat down at lunch, unable to imagine how bread, meat and cheese could ever get on together. Now, after you've cried your tears, feel happy in the knowledge that our world is literally full of sandwiches.

But therein lies another problem. With so many choices, how do you prevent disappointment?

In comes us. We've spent an unhealthy amount of time salivating over the greatest the world has to offer between two slices of bread and put together a list of the ultimate ten.

Take a deep breath, clear some space for that drool spot and read on ...

Soaking Up The Sunshine In Hawaii

Hanauma Bay

Local residents Jim and brother Bob Starko are currently soaking up the sun in Hawaii. They were good enough to send us some shots of the locale, although likely to 'rub it in' just a bit, as we freeze our tails off these days. Thanks for sharing guys!

Bomb Squad Called Out For Hoax In Edmonton
IMG_0159
Don,

There was a package found near 122 Ave. and 103 St. in Edmonton and city police moved in with the bomb squad around lunch time. The first explosion was the one I saw and it was a block and half form my home. There was white debris flying everywhere. Police would not let anybody out of their homes and had taped off the alleys and streets. It was quite scary to say the least. Police set up command post in front of my home. Police told me to stay in my home because I was in the bomb radius.

SINC SAYS:

Gee Paul you sure do have a nose for news. Thanks for sending along all those pictures. As it turned out, it was called a hoax, but one can never be too careful.

The North American Beer Festival

The North American Beer Festival
After the North American Beer Festival, all the brewery presidents decided to go out for a beer. The guy from Corona sits down and says, 'Hey Senor, I would like the world's best beer, a Corona .' The bartender dusts off a bottle from the shelf and gives it to him.

The guy from Budweiser says, 'I'd like the best beer in the world, give me 'The King Of Beers', a Budweiser.' The bartender gives him one.

The guy from Coors says, 'I'd like the only beer made with Rocky Mountain spring water, give me a Coors.' He gets it.

The guy from Molson Canadian sits down and says, 'Give me a Coke.' The bartender is a little taken aback, but gives him what he ordered.

The other brewery presidents look over at him and ask, 'Why aren't you drinking a Molson's?'

The Molson Canadian president replies, 'Well, I figured if you guys aren't drinking beer, neither would I.'

Life's Funny Experiences

lifesfully
All eyes were on the radiant bride as her father escorted her down the aisle.

They reached the altar and the waiting groom; the bride kissed her father and placed something in his hand.

The guests in the front pews responded with ripples of laughter.

Even the minister smiled broadly.

As her father gave her away in marriage, the bride gave him back his credit card.
