#3 Not getting a local loan approval. You should shop for your mortgage of course.  But one of your estimates should be a local loan officer's pre-approval.  Yes, it's a pain to get all those docs together, but you are going to need to do it anyway.  And why local?  Hawaii has very unique land la...

I have previously blogged about the sorry state of the Kapiolani Community College Farmer's Market, primarily due to the busloads of tourists to whom the market now caters.  Tons of prepared food booths, homemade jams, lemonade, etc. but very little left in produce.  And the stuff is vastly over...

Nosy Neighbors in Hawaii I live in Kailua Oahu Hawaii, the most beautiful place on earth. Homes in Hawaii are smaller and closer together than most mainlanders are used to (there's that limited land issue).  So you get used to being "close" to your neighbors. A few years ago there was an older, ...
