Re: Local TV Ads You Don't Like

The Hawaiian Air ads on radio where the crew is making personal remarks over the airplane's PA system. It's one thing to say that you know your customers - it's completely different to broadcast...

Re: Disappearing businesses

This one's a little different. The store is doing fine. It appears the landlord got a better offer. So what's being planned? That's a pretty big parcel. A big box store? Who? More retail? ...

Re: 99% isopropyl alcohol

Check the drug stores. I know I regularly get 90% alcohol pads at Walmart.

Re: Ridiculous Electric Bill

Reality. Since we're putting so many eggs into the solar basket, it makes sense to try and move usage to the daylight hours. I can already hear the screams about how it's favoring business over...

Re: FOX NEWS/GOP desperation

Funny. That's close to what I've concluded about some of the left-wingers.

Re: Annoying Storm Warnings

I don't think that's part of the NWS's standard operating procedure. If it is, it's a change. And doing so only creates a situation of crying "wolf" for those who weren't terribly affected by the...

Re: Annoying Storm Warnings

The problem is the crawl message is just the limited information from the digital signal. It tells you what kind of alert and what areas are affected. ("Flash Flood Warning for the island of Oahu")...

Re: Annoying Storm Warnings

My issue was with the number of alerts that carried NO additional information, just an extension of a prior alert.

Re: Weather updates

The severe storm that produced the hail was quite small. It came up from the south and covered from Aina Hina to Kailua and points east. The bulk of the island was untouched by that particular...

Re: Annoying Storm Warnings

The "duck farts" in the audio is what triggers any automated system that happens to be listening to the channel.

The weather alerts are sent by the National Weather Service, but depending on what...

Re: boycott-rush petition

As long as Rush has ratings, he can get sponsors.

Re: Weather updates

Looks like it's over for Oahu - on this go-around. Only one lightning bolt/thunder this afternoon and lots of rain.

Re: Weather updates

Yeah, town got some good ones last night. I was only 2 seconds away from me. (Time from flash to boom). Given the brightness and sound, I think it was cloud to ground, not the usual cloud to cloud.

Re: The GOP vs women

It's all supply and demand. We have no choice but to pay or go without. But the more supply there is, the lower the prices.

Re: The GOP vs women

From what I understand, part of it is speculation - so failure to drill for the oil we have means there's less oil down the road and speculation pushes up the price now. Has Obama opened up the off...

Re: The GOP vs women

The fact is the prices are going up and there's talk of $5/gal in our near future. That's never good for the incumbents. I certainly don't see them doing anything to lower the price - like allowing...

Re: The GOP vs women

I heard that Rush's ratings had been dropping. This might be little more then an attempt to get ratings.

The issue on church employment and contraception is something that needs to be worked out,...

Re: Disappearing businesses

Maybe a semantics issue. I doubt if this is something Sears wants to do, but given their situation, they have little choice.

I wonder how well AMC was doing for Sears. It's hard for me to read...

Re: Disappearing businesses

I hear 'ya. I'm not young anymore. Certainly no longer buying the "dress to impress" nightclub stuff. I just can't relate to most of the stores at AMC anymore. Sears is my go-to for work day...

Re: Disappearing businesses

Depending on what they put in there, it may be one less reason for me to stop at Ala Moana.

Interesting camera work. I haven't seen some of those moves until they starting mounting camera on booms.

Re: OCCUPY Honolulu

That's what I'm hearing. I know there was one article in the SB that indicated one person came over from the mainland to lead the Honolulu Occupy.

It really makes me wonder who/what's behind...

Re: OCCUPY Honolulu

Not sure that would help.



Good luck on that. Hawaii has been attempting subtle attempts on that (such as favoring residents for...
