A Ziggy Cartoon

Last night I saw a funny Ziggy cartoon. Ziggy said, “I ate 7 Happy Meals, and I am still depressed.”

The Daniel Diet

Last night I met Dr. Shintani who wrote “The Hawaii Diet”. He gave a faith based seminar at a local church here in Honolulu and the topic was the food Daniel ate during that particular time in biblical history. Now, I am not Christian, but I could really appreciate that there were so many people […]

Recommendations?

Since I have been back here, I have been trying to generate interest in macrobiotics.

Had a GREAT night in the organic garden. Thisshangri la is directly behind the Chinese Cemetary, in the back of Manoa Valley. Interesting feng shui, but the garden and the people seem to be thriving. They felt the Chinese chose the cemetary for the auspicious site about100+ years ago and for that reason, it doesnt […]

Macrobiotic Meetup in Manoa

Today we had our first Vegan/Macrobiotic Meetup Group activity in Manoa at Kathy Maddux’s Great Life Bento place. At first I thought it would be just Kathy and myself, but I was so happy to see 3 more people come, all of whom are vegan. It was a lot of fun for me to talk […]

Fish Pond
