Post Re: Menehune Man's New Ride!

Last night was when I was given the special gift from "A Bunch Of Bishop Museum Co-workers". I just want to take a moment since I have brought the situation up, to share my particulars... I'm not destitute, though right now before the gift I had $1,109.86 in the bank and no debt. I live month to month, but always seem to make it, can be frivolous at times too. So in other words I don't have a lot, okay? Here's a photo of the hand-delivered to me and emailed to the persons concerned document. I taped the yellow paper and wrote 'censored' before taking it.


I work amongst a bunch of great folks! Much Mahalos!

I'm in this a bit late, but I feel I must put in my two cents:

I was the Assistant Curator of Ethnology (including capitals) at the BPBM in 81 and 82. I had to leave because the salary was so sparse. Most BPBM officials work for extemely reduced salaries.

That MM's workers chose to assist financially is a tribute to the museum staff, who have been supportive and caring to the n'th degree, at least in my experience.

Had I been able to be supportively paid, I would have stayed. I LOVED BPBM, but couldn't pay rent.

MM, you have a loving group of folks there. Contact me in a PM, please.

Right on Kaonohi!
I totally agree. I enjoy everyone there. They give for each other in so many ways.
Quite a few have joined me in clean-up a park day(s) I created. As just one example.

No one truly makes what they deserve working there, but all love the institution.

Sorry for the kinda thread drift folks.

PM coming up...

Many of us choose to work jobs where the pay is uncomfortably low, because it's more important to us to be making a positive difference to the world and our fellow travelers, and/or because enjoyment of the work we do matters more to us than financial wealth.

Nothing against those for whom money is a more important factor - you have your reasons for your priorities, too. But imagine what would be lacking in your world if you didn't have underpaid teachers, social-service providers, museum employees and the like in it.

(NOT sorry for the thread drift.)

No need to apologize, and anyway it's not really thread drift.
Sorry I've been too busy (work and music gigs) to dive in earlier, but I agree with all the positive comments here in the past few days. [/high five to MM]

Congratulations, MM! Good looking bike.
No wonder you bought it, it happens to already have your name and logo on it.

Talking Re: Menehune Man's New Ride!

OK!
Now, when you do that Costco run make sure you pick up a nice heavy-duty cable with permanent loops on the end (not with a screw-on clamp) and a real heavy duty, hardened lock. Cable is harder to cut than chain, and separate locks are stronger than standard cable locks. If necessary, get guidance from a bike or moped shop; care enough to get 'the very best.'
Make sure the cable is plastic coated so you don't scratch the nice new finish!
When you lock it up, make sure the cable goes through the frame and through (not over) some immovable object.
(Bikes cabled to parking meters are stolen when 2-3 guys just lift it high enough to slip it over the top.)

Let's keep this one.

K?

Post Re: Menehune Man's New Ride!

my yellow moped was stolen in July.
bought the white one in August.
police got it back in September.
really beat up, missing parts, broken body panels, twisted front forks, but runs well.

Four teenagers were busted riding two stolen mopeds in Kalihi Valley.
Will be going to court sometime soon.

I'll see if my moped shop is interested in it for parts?
