Please note the DVD offer below from the reunion committee.
I've previewed it and can attest to it's quality and worth... a lot of photos, great video and quite professionally done IMHO.

Also posted, the condensed version of the most recent Bulldog Bulletin (thanks to Muriel)... for those who may not have
received the mailed 'hard copy', or would like to pass it on electronically to other classmates.

Jean, according to Slug (Clifford Young), he apparently does bake them for around 30 minutes... here's what he wrote :

I bake them about 30 mins...2 trays at a time...12 cookies on each tray, with the trays on the lower & middle racks.
After the first 12-14 mins...I reverse the trays for the remainder of the cooking time.

Boyd's concern on Nuk, or rather your description, rated more than a chuckle or two.
Yes, you're right, Cherub Hal needs to get back to work again.

Anyone else wanting to contact another classmate on the list above, let me know... can/will do the same as done for
Yolinda Agaria with the same conditions and caveats.

Brenda, your reference to 'bake a cherry pie' had me perplexed for a while, thinking back to high school... suddenly
realized I had to go further back... way back... and it came back to me... quick as a cat can wink it's eye.

Notice from the reunion committee :

Due to requests for photos from the Honolulu class reunion in April, 2010, Chester Otani has produced a DVD slideshow

(who shot photos for Betty Townsend, one of our classmates, who couldn't make the reunion).
Short video clips are also shown on the slideshow.

This is a slideshow and you cannot make prints from it.
The DVD slideshow is 31 minutes long.
This slideshow is viewable on a computer or DVD player hooked up to a television set.

Since you're sending corrections to the cookbook, Roy, and I lost Seda's e-mail address, could you let us know
if 35-40 minutes is the correct amount of time to bake Seda's Mac Nut Chocolate Chip Cookies on page 177.
My daughter made them and they were ono-licious but she questioned the time.
She baked them for 11 minutes but said that 14 minutes were ideal.
She thought 35-40 minutes would produce hockey pucks.

Looking forward to the reunion on 10/10/10.
Sorry, but I haven't lost a pound so you'll all have to be grossed out with fat Jean in Las Vegas.
I don't even recognize myself so I won't feel badly when none of you recognize me.
I may wear a 72 font name tag to help.

Did Robert Nukushina disappear off the face of the earth?
When my husband asks about the whereabout of another man, it's cause to worry about one of them.

Roger, haven't had time to sit and watch the disk "Digital Photography for Dummies"...too much yard work and
sewing to do.
May have to watch and sew at the same time.
Boyd bought me an AUDIOVOX LCD DVD player at a yard sale for about $1.
That tells you how ancient it is.
At least it's small and will fit near my sewing maching.

Happy for Brenda and Bob.
Wish more classmates could make a connection like they did.
Get working, Hal.

Danielle is waiting to do more 50th Reunion t-shirts, hoodies, messenger bags, totebags and anything else.
I can do aprons, happi coats, crying towels for golf or bowling.
Anyone need ball caps or visors for golfing?
Let me know and I will get a logo or patch put on it.
I was thinking of making a lap quilt with reunion logo and names of all our classmates on alternating white,
yellow and green blocks.
Maybe as a door prize or moneymaker for the committee to use for postage and paper.

Thanks, Hal, for continuing to allow communication!
I am having my 3 month check up for my thyroidectomy, and my voice is coming back nicely, although still
can't reach high notes for my intended karaoke debut. Ha.

Robert took me out on his sailboat on Saturday, and I must say it was quite delightful.
I got to be first mate .... that's funny, if you think about it; shoulda, coulda woulda.

Manny, please call Lomilomi Hana Lima and leave me your cell number there, if you would.
I plan to be back in the office by Friday of this week. Thanks!
It's possible that I will be at the WH for Maya's 40th bd on August 15......it is in the realm of possibility.
If so, perhaps we could tandem the occasions?
Just a thought!

Working on my teaching manual here at Doc's office while he works for a living.
I get more done when here then I do at home...... fewer interruptions and have to dos.
Last night I cooked dinner for R and his friends.....only thing missing was spam musubi.
Wish I had that cookbook for the bumboocha one!
I gave it the Hawaii one two punch, as we put so much aloha in our cooking, don't we?
They were duly blown away. Ha!
I had one proud "boyfriend!"
AND I can bake a cherry pie!
Remember that one?

Okay, once we start reminiscing about the old songs and sayings, it's time to log off.
Love to everyone reading this.......and that means you, too, Caroline.

Love in abundance,

Manny, haven't heard from anyone yet on getting together on Tuesday... hopefully we will by then.

Thanks Roy, I'll post this later on the Pbase website.

Bing, neither did I picture a gun-toting Granny with Sandy : )

On the Bulldog Bulletins... I may have contributed to some confusion on that with the Disclaimer...
sorry about that.
The bulletins, to my knowledge, are sent out only when appropriate info needs to be disseminated.
Thus, other than the bulletin being sent out this weekend, the last bulletin sent was just before the
April 17th reunion.
Hereafter, I'll post the date of the last bulletin that I know about within the Disclaimer.
Hope this will clear up any confusion on that issue.
I'll also try to post a condensed version of this latest issue of the bulletin in the next email blog.

That's good.
I am in Honolulu now so we can meet when you get back from your ever lasting honeymoon.

Hi Hal,

Was good to see you at the meeting.

The following are corrections to the cook book.
If you need more clarification, let me know.


Page 21:

2 cups crushed pineapple, drained


Page 134:

2 tsp. baking soda


Page 145:

3 Tbs. (heaping) cornmeal


Page 154:

Sift flour and baking powder together.


Page 192:

Stir together with other ingredients in blender ... It will make 2 1/2 cups of steak marinade.
Rub sauce on steaks and grill till desired doneness.
Great on all meats ... on hamburger patties too.

Hope this is all, but I doubt it.

The picture of Sandy Akiyama shooting guns at KoKo Head firing range brought back a rush of fond memories.
When I think of Sandy, the last thing I would think she would do is shoot a gun.
Who knew?

When I was a pre-teen, my Dad would take my brother and me to practice shooting at the KoKo Head firing range.
He was a volunteer police man.
On Wednesday evenings (I think or was it Thursday) he would ride with a regular officer on patrol.
Back then he had to practice shooting a certain amount of times to ride shotgun.
The shooting range was rather primitive at that time.
It consisted of a long row of targets on tripods set against the mountain in the open in the back.
Is it the same or have they enclosed the shooting area like we see on TV?

Clarence Shibuya, please send me Ruthie’s contact information.
I can’t find what you gave me at the reunion. Thanks.

Reunion committee meeting tonight, 6PM at Unity House ( Ala Wai Blvd, across the canal from the Convention Center).

Seems like a lot of great ideas for activities, Sandy... whatever I can fit into my schedule, I'm game.
Not too sure about the cemetery tours though... have never been to the rifle range, even though I lived in the area...
sounds like that would be a blast... literally... (sorry).

Brenda, glad to hear everything is working out well... enjoy your stay at one of my favorite little corners of the world...
have great memories of the Puyallup-Steilacoom-Tacoma-Seattle area... hope Manny got in touch with you.

Hi Hal,

I agree with Chesta about the Roosevelt reunion.
They have a bunch of activities for their reunion, most of which some of us have never done yet.
Besides the pupu/coffee get togethers, we could schedule some of these activities even if it’s just a small group.
I’m sure there are others who would rather “do” something than just sit and talk – beach cleanup, volunteer day, etc.
As an example, last weekend I went with my two family members to the Koko Head rifle range and shot some guns.
It was the greatest fun.
We can discuss more at the next committee meeting.

Hui, Hal, et. al.

Glad you are continuing to send messages, .... we appreciate it a lot!

Through this medium, I am asking Doctor Manny to contact me about the beautiful handcrafted weapon for the White House.
Had breakfast and did a session with sister Maya today, and she will help us not be rejected by the WH.
They have an enormous number of "donations" or "gifts" that simply cannot be housed there, and they have had to set rigid guidelines.
She did, however, say to contact the WH and then give her a letter with a photo of the weapon, and she will follow up for us.
Please take a nice photo and write about it and send it to me, if you can.
Call me for address information. (Not the weapon itself, ...just the description and reason for wanting to gift it and a photo.)

I will take it from there and let you know.

Off to Tacoma Wednesday until June 30. 3 month checkup on surgery and visit with my favorite cheerleader.

Hi Sharon,

The Bulldog Bulletins are sent out by the reunion committee.
Pearl Shimooka Mori handles the mailing address list.
My guess is she still doesn't have your mailing address.
You can reach her at 808 544-**** or 1**** **** Street, Apt **** Honolulu, HI 96814
Otherwise just email her at pearl.mori@****.com

There is no 'official' website to my knowledge, just snail-mail info and sign-up.
Also, as I understand, the next Bulldog Bulletin will be sent out this weekend or shortly thereafter.
Pearl, once she has your mailing address, should be able to send one to you.

Note again that the email 'blog' and parts of the Pbase picture website merely repeat info that I
also receive from the bulletins or sometimes beforehand if I'm able to attend a meeting... and
I like your 'Sagan sig'.

Good reminders on email security as much as nearly all of us already know of them but do tend to forget.
If I may add another reminder: a lot of us do forget to do Bcc (blind carbon copy) or Undisclosed Recipient
when emailing more than a couple of people or so ( you know who you are ; )... ever since starting this
email blog, I've become more aware and conscientious in doing so, slipping just a couple of times... though
it may seem safe emailing a group of friends, remember that your recipients may be forwarding to their
recipients and so on with complete strangers to you ending up with the email addresses... strangers with less
than honest intentions... I know, seems paranoid, but it happens more often than you might think.
Way down below is a follow-up from Jean W. on the name spoofing... no unwarranted paranoia there as Jean
will attest to.

Glad to hear Margie's doing fine, Pearl... hope she can make it to the 10/10/10 reunion.

Wow !... that's a lot on the RHS 60's plate, Chester... but hey, may as well do as much as you can after 50 years...
never know what one may or may not be able to accomplish later on.

I know, I know, Gerri... no swan-song, just a little discouraged, as I know I have no reason to be... when this email
blog first started, I had no idea it would grow and evolve as it has... hopefully the buzz will pick up again as we
get closer to the next reunion in October... and if just a few classmates came to / will be going to our reunions
or became involved-communicated with other classmates or just enjoyed reading and learning more, then I
really shouldn't be discouraged and feel the long early morning hours spent on the emails and blog these past
15 months have been more than worthwhile and ( usually : ) quite enjoyable.

active' email addresses to use in SPAM emails or sell to other spammers. Even when you get emails that demand
you send the email on if you're not ashamed of God/Jesus --- that is email tracking, and they are playing on our
conscience. These people don't care how they get your email addresses - just as long as they get them. Also,
emails that talk about a missing child or a child with an incurable disease "how would you feel if that was your child"
--- email tracking. Ignore them and don't participate!


2) Almost all emails that ask you to add your name and forward on to others are similar to that mass letter years ago
that asked people to send business cards to the little kid inFlorida who wanted to break the Guinness Book of Records
for the most cards. All it was, and all any of this type of email is, is a way to get names and 'cookie' tracking information
for telemarketers and spammers -- to validate active email accounts for their own profitable purposes.

You can do your Friends and Family members a GREAT favor by sending this information to them.
You will be providing a service to your friends.
And you will be rewarded by not getting thousands of spam emails in the future!

Do yourself a favor and STOP adding your name(s) to those types of listing regardless how inviting they might sound!
Or make you feel guilty if you don't! It's all about getting email addresses and nothing more.

You may think you are supporting a GREAT cause, but you are NOT!

Instead, you will be getting tons of junk mail later and very possibly a virus attached!
Plus, we are helping the spammers get rich!
Let's not make it easy for them!
ALSO: Email petitions are NOT acceptable to Congress of any other organization - i.e. social security, etc.
To be acceptable, petitions must have a "signed signature" and full address of the person signing the petition, so this is a
waste of time and you are just helping the email trackers.

Tips for Handling Telemarketers

Three Little Words That Work!!

(1)The three little words are: 'Hold On, Please...'

Saying this, while putting down your phone and walking off (instead of hanging-up immediately) would make each telemarketing
call so much more time-consuming that boiler room sales would grind to a halt.

Then when you eventually hear the phone company's 'beep-beep-beep' tone, you know it's time to go back and hang up your
handset, which has efficiently completed its task.

These three little words will help eliminate telephone soliciting..

(2) Do you ever get those annoying phone calls with no one on the other end?

This is a telemarketing technique where a machine makes phone calls and records the time of day when a person answers
the phone.

This technique is used to determine the best time of day for a 'real' sales person to call back and get someone at home.

What you can do after answering, if you notice there is no one there, is to immediately start hitting your # button on the phone,
6 or 7 times as quickly as possible.
This confuses the machine that dialed the call, and it kicks your number out of their system.
Gosh, what a shame not to have your name in their system any longer!!!

(3) Junk Mail Help:
When you get 'ads' enclosed with your phone or utility bill, return these 'ads' with your payment. Let the sending companies throw
their own junk mail away.

When you get those 'pre-approved' letters in the mail for everything from credit cards to 2nd mortgages and similar type junk, do
not throw away the return envelope.

Most of these come with postage-paid return envelopes, right? It costs them more than the regular 44 cents postage, 'IF' and
when they receive them back.

It costs them nothing if you throw them away! The postage was around 50 cents before the last increase and it is according to
the weight. In that case, why not get rid of some of your other junk mail and put it in these cool little, postage-paid return envelopes.

One of Andy Rooney 's (60 minutes) ideas.

Send an ad for your local chimney cleaner to American Express. Send a pizza coupon to Citibank. If you didn't get anything else that
day, then just send them their blank application back!
If you want to remain anonymous, just make sure your name isn't on anything you send them.

You can even send the envelope back empty if you want to just to keep them guessing! It still costs them 44 cents.

The banks and credit card companies are currently getting a lot of their own junk back in the mail, but folks, we need to OVERWHELM
them. Let's let them know what it's like to get lots of junk mail, and best of all they're paying for it...Twice!

Let's help keep our postal service busy since they are saying that e-mail is cutting into their business profits, and that's why they
need to increase postage costs again. You get the idea!

If enough people follow these tips, it will work ---- I have been doing this for years, and I get very little junk mail anymore.

THIS JUST MIGHT BE ONE E-MAIL THAT YOU WILL WANT TO FORWARD TO YOUR FRIENDS

Safer that way!!!
I tell people who email me for the first time to put their name in the Subject so I know who they are,
especially if their email address doesn't show something that would refresh my memory!!!
Well, actually the memory thing doesn't help much anyway -- if you know what I mean.

Pearl (Shimooka Mori) or any one else out there... any chance you may have Kathleen's contact info...
if so this email, printed out, could be sent to her with the hope that she'll receive it and can respond.
Similar can be done for any one else wishing direct contact with another, i.e. ; if contact info available,
contact attempted with desired request... successful response relayed back to requester.

Thought I recall mention of others here attending Star of the Sea School... for those unfamiliar with that
school, it's in the Waialae-Kahala area, having been in different locations adjacent to the Waialae and
Kilauea avenues intersection... I have fond memories of enjoying the yearly carnival-bazaars that were
held there when I lived in the area... much like the 'Super-Duper' carnivals held at Kaimuki High School
but at a far smaller scale... anyone else remember those KHS carnivals... had my first taste of 'Purity Pup'
hot dogs there... they even had the quintessential 'carny' side shows... saw the 'man without a face' as
he was walking onto the campus while we were leaving.

Irene, haven't heard how Margie is doing as yet... hopefully she is doing fine.

Well, as most of you might have noticed, it's been well over a week since the last email blog... as I told
Roger, eventually interest will wane and much to the delight of a few, the consternation of some and
the indifference of the rest, this email blog, after nearly a year and a half, may also eventually cease...
but before we hear the cheers, jeers and yawns, that will also probably mean that this blog may just
morph into a less frequent informational email flyer... or not.

Unfortunately, I don't have Kathleen's email address.
I could try to sleuth out her address if I had her married name.
Without that, the possibility of finding her email address changes from slim to none.
What I could try though is ask Pearl Shimooka Mori if she has Kathleen's mailing address.
If so, a letter could be sent to her asking if she would like to respond to Diane Kam So via email.
(note that there's no guarantee that Pearl Mori has her address or that it's current)
Secondly, I could post this request on the blog (minus personal info as usual of course) with the
chance that someone does have Kathleen's contact info.
Let me know if this route is OK with you and Diane.

Hi Harold,

I have a friend who knows Kathleen Kajiwara and would like to know if there is a way that she and Kathleen
could communicate with each other by e-mail.
Her name is Diane Kam So and her e-mail is: *****@***.com
Diane lives in San Francisco and was here for a week until her return to San Francisco on Tuesday afternoon.
Hiram and I were able to take her out to dinner and then she asked me for the favor.
She graduated from St. Francis in Manoa but they didn't have a 50th reunion like we did because the class was
small - just went out to meet some of her friends for lunch at Nordstrom's on Sunday.
These friends were those who attended Star of the Sea with her.

Brenda, wife says 'talking to myself'... normal, yes... charming, no.

Roger, methinks 'some point in time' will be here sooner than later... not much activity on the
email blog... oh well, all good (and maybe bad) things come to an end sometime.
If big sister did that trip she never told me about it.
Actually, none of my sisters have been further north than the border. as far as I know.
Anchorage to Fairbanks is around a 400 mile drive... about 7+ hours without stops...
according to Google anyway.
Fairbanks to Skagway is about 3+ days... 'course Google has you going down to B.C. first, then
back up to Skagway.
Guessing on a more direct route would be something like 800+ miles and around 16+ hours...
non-stop... if all the roads are open.
Sounds more like a trip Jean and Boyd have taken... maybe there's a super-highway we don't
know about ?

Take a look at the pics of Jean's great handiwork and also her 'trophy'... posted on the Pbase
website... see the link below

Aloha, Hal and Roger!

Just so happens that I am on line today.
I am in Tacoma with my Robert after having attended my daughter's graduation from massage school
and my granddaughter's graduation from middle school in Las Vegas.............a quick trip,
then up to this rainy but happy destination for me.
I am, however, working on my teaching manual and web site, as teaching will be pumped up this year
and next, as my jet engine mind in my volkswagen body is asking for a respite from all those
therapeutic massages! ;-)
By the way, there is a big difference between a "massage therapist" and a "masseuse."
A massage therapist puts in a whole lot of study and has liability insurance, has to take continuing
education classes each year, etc.
Just want to clarify so that my beloved classmates are clear that I am not listed in the newspaper sport
pages. Ha!
Reminds me of that darling Maxine card where she says, "I've still got it,....it's just that nobody wants
to see it!"

Hal, I think your talking to yourself is quite charming and "normal," don't you?

Roger, I would suggest your friend check out VRBO (vacation rentals by owner) and look at Kapoho or
something at "Champagne Ponds."
Although there are many spots that would be great, this area has some really lovely hideaways with
many times a warm natural pond in the yard, even.
It is away from most things that would preclude being quiet, and having done silent retreats,
I think this might be the ticket.
I've attended board meetings at this spot and found it to be quite wonderful.
Another possibility would be to check out a temple retreat in Kau....I believe it is a Buddhist monastery
with lodging that is open to visitors.
Not fancy, yet exquisite.
Since I am on the mainland currently, I can't look it up in my resource file.
Any more information needed,....I am happy to help.
Manny might know of some places, also, although I can't imagine dear Manny seeking quiet. ;-)

Manny, I had an appointment with Maya, Obama's sister, for a treatment, and she fell ill and had to
reschedule.
When I get back I will see her and ask about the entree to gift your beautiful weapon to the White House.
I haven't forgotten.
Also, I am not interested in accepting 5,000 british pounds to open doors ...ha!

Gotta run....glad I checked the blog............thanks, Hal!

Love and light,
Brenda

I'm a patient guy.
At some point in time, folks will get tired of "talking to each other".
I was thinking about an Alaska trip to see bears and to ride the Skagway railroad.
Jean suggested driving from Anchorage to Fairbanks thru Canada to Skagway,
dropping off the rental car and catching the cruise ship to Los Angeles.
She made it sound like your big sister took a trip like this.
If she did and is willing, I'd like to hear her comments.
Most important part-How was the drive from Fairbanks to Skagway?

Please ask Brenda to write to me.
I have a friend who is looking for a retreat or a place to meditate on the Big Island.

Hi Roger:
Have to look at my Spam trophy again.
I think you see Boyd's name because the sushi was named for him:

I made two banners.
The blue one is for the Southeast Region V, Class 2A championship

Both banners are hung up in the school gym.

Shinty, thanks for sharing the Elvis link to his music.
Man it brought back lots of fond memories...my high school years were one of the best fun times of my life.

Chesta's comments about him on vacation in LA cracked me up to no end.
I thought it was hilarious.
I'm sure when he was living in the LA area... going on vacation was... going back home to Hawaii,
where he now lives there again.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.

It was such a delight and pleasant surprise to see Betty Ann Ing and Hank at the reunion.
She has not changed at all...still cute and bubbly as ever.

And Mattos... don't forget to grow that beard now, when you present those stone tablets to our classmates
when you are in town, sometime in June... for that get-together.
And remember...the Robe and Sandals.
