"Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.." -Steven Wright.. follow up on @KGMB9

If you're not familiar with the work of Steven Wright, he's the famous erudite scientist who once said: "I woke up one morning, and all of my stuff had been stolen and replaced by exact duplicates." His mind sees things differently than most of us do, to our amazement and amusement. Here are some of his gems:

1 - I'd kill for a Nobel Peace Prize.

2 - Borrow money from pessimists -- they don't expect it back.
3 - Half the people you know are below average.
4 - 99% of lawyers give the rest a bad name
5 - 82.7% of all statistics are made up on the spot

6 - A conscience is what hurts when all your other parts feel so good.
7 - A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.
8 - If you want the rainbow, you got to put up with the rain.
9 - All those who believe in psycho kinesis, raise my hand.
10 - The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.
11 - I almost had a psychic girlfriend, ..... but she left me before we met
12 - OK, so what's the speed of dark?
13 - How do you tell when you're out of invisible ink?
14 - If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.
15 - Depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.
16 - When everything is coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.
17 - Ambition is a poor excuse for not having enough sense to be lazy.
18 - Hard work pays off in the future; laziness pays off now.
19 - I intend to live forever.... so far, so good.
20 - If Barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy her friends?
21 - Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.
22 - What happens if you get scared half to death twice?
23 - My mechanic told me, "I couldn't repair your brakes, so I made your horn louder."
24 - Why do psychics have to ask you for your name?
25 - If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.
26 - A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking.
27 - Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
28 - The hardness of the butter is proportional to the softness of the bread
29 - To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal from many is research.
30 - The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.
31 - The sooner you fall behind, the more time you'll have to catch up.
32 - The colder the x-ray table, the more of your body is required to be on it.
33 - Everyone has a photographic memory; some just don't have film.
And an all time favorite-
34 - If your car could travel at the speed of light would your headlights work?

Review: Skyy Infusions Pineapple Vodka

Who doesn’t like pineapple? Commies, that’s who.

Strange then to put pineapples and vodka together, but hey, who are we to judge. Pineapple is a natural for many cocktails — but carving up a fresh pineapple is a royal pain in the butt. Enter pineapple-infused vodka, which Skyy says it developed as an alternative to heavier rums for use in tiki drinks and the like.

Sounds good to me, but how does it taste?

Pretty good, to be frank.

Grand Marshal & friends from Aloha Shriners spotted at Tiki's Grill & Bar!

Tonight was of the "SALUTE TO Youth Parade" with some 1,200 marchers
as part of the 2009 Hawai'i Invitational International Music Festival.
 When the parade ended Pete Larson-Pontentate and Jack Webb with a few
other Shriners came in for drinks and dinner.

 A few years back Tiki's Grill & Bar hosted a large fundraiser for the
Aloha Temple Shriners during our Tiki's grand opening week.

 The Shriners of North America is an international fraternity of
approximately 500,000 members throughout the United States, Mexico,
Canada and Panama.

 The Shrine's official philanthropy is Shriners Hospitals for Children,
a network of 22 hospitals that provide expert, no-cost orthopaedic and
burn care to children under 18. If you know a child Shriners Hospitals
might be able to help, call us toll-free at 1-800-237-5055 (in the
U.S.) or 1-800-361-7256 (in Canada) or in Honolulu, Hawai'i at
808-941-4466 AlohaShriners.org

 The Shrine Fez(with the Scimitar, Sphinx, and Tiger talons) is a badge
of Masonic honor and shows that you are a philanthropist and have
donated several hours (or are about to) to the Shrine Hospitals for

 Shriners do a LOT of hard work and do fundraisers constantly.....in
fact, outside of meetings, if you see a Shriner wearing his fez, he's
probably in the middle of a fund raising event or parade.

 ***Historical note about Moana Surfrider hotel's first guests in 1901
were a group of 114 Shriners hosted by the local Aloha Temple
Shriners. They paid a costly $1.50 per night for the rooms. ***

 Big Mahalo for all the good thing the Aloha Shriners have done in
Hawaii! --Michael Miller
