Our Blogosphere

Shaping up very nicely even though I will always stumble here and there but I will alway try to get back up. I just went through a very trying situation in which we almost lost Town Dancer. The scam spam robot hits are now all gone and perhaps we can do our blogging again.

"At some point in time, we just have to let go of what we thought
should happen and accept what is happening."

Platinum Horsehoe is still in front in hits, followed by Blogging Hawaii.  But Town Dancer is back and rapidly catching up to Blogging Hawaii. A couple more days will do it. And when Calvin blogs about the Aloha Ball, that may send Town Dancer back in front. Not much action coming from Platinum Horseshoe territory.

In Waipahu there is an outdoor museum dedicated to preserving the history and culture of Hawaii’s immigrants.and is called Hawaii's Plantation Village. This village represents immigrants from China, Japan, Okinawa, Korea, Philippines, Portugal and Puerto Rico and every group danced in their own way.

About 350,000 original immigrants had come to Hawaii from 1852 - 1946 to work in the sugar plantations in this area. The people living here today, live in similar structures that their ancestors lived in. And there has been a touch of each culture in every one of our social dances. This is a fascinating view of old Hawaii.

I and many others hope that Benny and Emmie are getting better in health. Really a most important thing. If you are reading this, Benny and Emmie, you or your family are welcome to write something for our fellow dancers.
