As I wrote on SOS Aloha, we bought a new laptop for me to write my blog. My desktop is just about kaput! To add to the chaos, we rescued a stray cat that we believe is the sister of another stray cat we rescued last year! This morning, we planned a group visit to Ko Olina - a beach resort. But it is raining ... so I now have time to write today's guest post!

Let's start with cats ... on this day in 1978, Garfield debut. He sets the Guinness World Record for the world's most widely syndicated comic strip. I'm not a big fan of Garfield as he is not that cuddly ... but I do love cats, especially ginger cats.

I do glance through the Honolulu paper to keep up with what is happening around Hawaii ... it notably does not feature the political mud slinging on the mainland that will only increase with the November election.
Ah, the November election. Hawaii is a given for Obama so we don't have any national campaigning ... but we do have some local mudslinging. Some candidates support the light rail for Honolulu, others don't. Rail is a hot topic now that Honolulu bumped LA as the American city with the worst traffic.
Paradise has outgrown its infrastructure but it still has its perks! Reading a book on the beach one of them! Do you have a favorite comic strip? Do you read the daily newspaper? How is the traffic in your city? One randomly selected commenter from this week's blogs wins a book choice from my convention stash. This giveaway is open to all readers. Comments are open through Friday, June 22, 10 pm in Hawaii. I'll post the winner on Saturday, June 23.
