Going Home

Today is a sad day, but one that we have known for a week or more that my grandfather Urias Boyd age 99 was close to going home. This evening at about 7pm EST the lord called him home. He is now in a better place. His passing was a peaceful one at home in his sleep.

Very few people my age still have Grandparents. I am very thankful that I have three still living. My father’s parents are still living and my mom’s mother is still with us.

I will post a full bibliography and the video I captured earlier this year as he talked about his life. I am thankful to have those tapes to be able to pass on to my kids and future generations within our family.

I am sure he has scored himself a package of RedMan chewing tobacco and him and that my dad is showing him around heaven.

Hawaii Populace Defeats Con Con and Rail is On!

I suppose I should not be surprised. This state is so controlled by the Unions and special interest groups that Con Con did not stand a chance.  Because those organizations knew that a Constitutional Convention for Hawaii would have allowed  the people to make sweeping changes that would loosen their stranglehold on this state.

Sadly the people in this state want more of the same. While the rest of the nation has voted for a new mandate with the election of Obama as President this state continues to sink further into more of the same.

The rail measure which my wife supported, and I opposed has passed, and now I am going to have to figure out how much my taxes are going to continue to go up to pay for the 7 billion dollar rail project.

Between the new President and this State Anti Business stance, I will be lucky if I have enough money left to buy toilet paper after they get done taxing the living hell out of us.

My accountant has already told me before the election if things played out tonight they way it has we will have to look at things very closely as the forthcoming business tax increases will likely cause me to have to re-think doing business any longer in this state.

Today some layoffs happened locally as business owners are preparing for the hit to their bottom line when Uncle Sam comes calling in 2009 to take more of our money away. Simply a sad night for the state of Hawaii. People here will someday learn that they have go against the flow once in a while.

Hawaii Keeps it’s Circuit City

The list of 155 Circuit City Stores closures came out today. The store here in Hawaii was not on the list. Ever since the closure of CompUSA last year the places where consumers can buy computer electronics goods has continued to narrow. Luckily we missed the bullet. Not sure it would have made a difference as I cannot remember the last time I shopped in the local store.
