SPAM Flavored Macadamia Nuts — Would You Try Them?

Posted: December 29th, 2011 | Comments Off


When we were visiting Big Island last month, we popped into the visitors center at the Hamakua Macadamia Nut Company to see and taste new flavors. We were amused when we saw SPAM flavored mac nuts.

Aloha Friday Photo: “Big As A House” Poinsettia Edition

Posted: December 23rd, 2011 | Comments Off

Most of us on the mainland will purchase a poinsettia this time of year for the holidays. We typically care for the small plant indoors for a few months. Then, we’ll thank the plant for its display before sending it on the compost. That’s why it’s so surprising for us visitors when we see large poinsettias bushes growing outdoors in Hawaii.

Around this time of year in Hawaii, you’ll see outdoor poinsettia bushes  loaded with bright blooms. They appear to love Hawaii’s tropical environment.

Today’s Aloha Friday Photo was shared by Janet from New Mexico....
