    For those of us who enjoy good movies, red carpet gowns, and any excuse to have a party, this Sunday’s Oscars are made for us. Invite a few friends over, suggest “tacky elegant” attire, print out a ballot at Oscars.com, and offer a bottle of bubbly as the prize for most correct guesses on winners.

    Local folks and visitors often feel that our islands have few dangers except for rare volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and hurricanes.

Although there are few poisonous native plants, some common exotic landscape plants are toxic such as oleander, crotons and angel trumpets. Some people can experience skin reactions like exposure to poison ivy from cashew and mango trees.
