I wish I could say that no muscles are involved with riding ATVs on the Big Island, but that would be somebody else talking. Not me. Every bone in my body aches today. And it's not just because I attended a stretch class or spent a good amount of time on the rowing machine the other day at my new...

Every single one of them has a different opinion. Usually, the goal seems to be to pay their workers as little as possible and get the ...
In case you're wondering, I am still camping out at our house in Hawaii in the midst of remodeling hell. We got bogged down because the countertop guys could not get over here in a timely manner.
