URGENT: HELP NEEDED!The Hawaiian Humane Society is beyond critical capacity for the animals in their care. They need YOU!

With shelters and their partner rescue organizations full, they need you – all of the animal lovers in our community – to step up and help.

Happy Halloween in Hanalei, Kaua'i We were visiting Hanalei in Kaua'i last week (just got home very early this morning) and spied this well-dressed skeleton in front of one of the collections of stores where our favorite Hanalei restaurant, Bar Acuda, is located.  The skeleton was a kid and photo magnet, with lots of parents snapping pics of kids standing in front of it and holding on to the legs. The skeleton had to be close to 12 feet tall although it might not appear that large in my photo.
