Blue Zones Project in West Hawaii officially launched Aug. 26 with a community event at Kona Commons in the old Sports Authority location, drawing a crowd of more than 1,500 people. This distinction completes the countywide effort to make healthy choices easier in all of Hawaii Island.

    It’s the month of February and we are one month into the 2017 legislative session. The Hawaii State Capitol is buzzing with constituents and advocacy groups going to hearings to testify. We are discussing new ideas, fixing regulations that cause problems and trying to address the aging of our infrastructure.

    Aloha friends … I will speak to you from my alternative universe today. Surely this is not the same one as of a year ago! I gotta get this out of the way … the president who criticized Obama for playing golf on the job, played his first rounds on his first ($3million?) vacation, after two weeks on the job. OK, just one more … Is it really true that the president’s energy plan never mentioned solar? Time to LOL … LOL!

    It has been an amazing two months for me as I have been able to establish personal connections with many community members and community organizations, county, state and federal policymakers, as well as various County of Hawaii department directors. These connections, based upon the foundation and spirit of aloha, have provided me a tremendous opportunity to listen to the needs and concerns of our communities and its members, and to discuss critical pieces of legislation and/or focuses concerning North and South Kohala.

    Do you have an activity that brings you joy within a community of like-minded individuals and is part of your weekly routine? If so, you are on the right track to an enjoyable retirement. Many people put off their passions and think they’ll start up the habit when they don’t have so many responsibilities. I’d like to challenge you to consider taking them up sooner rather than later.

    My friends, you do not need the pathetic political jokes I have today. So, let’s just skip to the naughty: A nice, calm and respectable lady went into the pharmacy, walked up to the pharmacist, looked straight into his eyes and said, “I would like to buy some cyanide!” The pharmacist asked, “Why in the world do you need cyanide?” The lady replied, “I need it to poison my husband!” The pharmacist’s eyes got big and he exclaimed, “Lord have mercy! I can’t give you cyanide to kill your husband. Absolutely not! You cannot have any cyanide.” The lady reached in her purse and pulled out a picture of her husband kissing the pharmacist’s wife! The pharmacist looked at the picture and said, “You didn’t tell me you had a prescription!”

    Dottie Duncan’s letter Jan. 21 is typical of the Republican’s misguided view of anyone who opposes our new president. She is willfully wrong about the rally (rather than protest) by women and men on Jan. 21.

    QUESTION: What is a Letter of Instructions and Ethical Will?

    Lift your workforce. Lead in your community.

    Would you believe that I have nothing political today? Well, if you do, then buy that bridge in San Francisco that I am selling! LOL?

    Looking up at the summit of Maunakea from North Hawaii for the last few weeks, you have likely noticed a snowy summit. Snow in Hawaii is a treat, but often the public cannot experience the snow immediately. There is a very important reason for the delay: safety.

    Here are a few great LOLs for we seniors! You can still laugh even if you are not a senior. Catch yourself taking to yourself when no one is around only to look up and realize your neighbor is looking at you strangely! Of course, if talking to yourself is the only way to get the answers you want to hear, it just might be worth it! Yep, this has happened to us all.

    While I still have your attention … I do, don’t I? … ‘cause I know you are waiting for the first joke! And before I give you that one, I will plead with you to find the full script of Meryl Streep’s acceptance speech for her CBD Lifetime Achievement Award. Wow! Wow! Definitely worth your read. So now we laugh … and laugh and even LOL!

    In preparation for the New Year, I started a course by Brian P. Moran that takes you through important steps to reach both immediate and long-term goals for your life. One part of the preparation is to think about what you would like to have, do and be in 5, 10 and 15 years from now. As the parent of an 8-year-old, I calculated my daughter’s age in those time increments and created my goals accordingly.

    Whew, I’ve had enough fireworks, parties and first of the year political scares! How about you? After too many parties, and listening to all the jabber jabber, I now fully believe that some people should use a glue stick instead of Chap Stick! Now, I probably could stop with that one … but more to come!

    Question: Who will pay my debts after I die?
