1. First thing to start a garden is to clean up after winter and get the ground ready. 2. You might consider square foot gardening. Raised beds are easy to maintain. Check http://www.squarefootgardening.com for tips. 3. I like this method of raised beds, because once it is set up its is low maintenance. 4. You can get creative with making your raised beds. Left over lumber that hasn't been treated is great for walls for your beds. Bricks are another option; I had some left over bricks and (2 comments)
Winter Surf on Maui's North Shore - 03/16/09 02:26 AM
Saturday was a stormy day on Maui, with Hugh surf. The cars piled out to the north shore to see the large surf. Kona winds were blowing at around 35 miles per hour blowing up the waves.
This is my backyard where I surf on a regular bases. This day it was wild, but there was a couple crazy kite boarders out in the surf.
This almost looks prefect for a session, only thing you would just get pounded by the surf.
In this shot you can see the wind cranking up.
I love winter days like (0 comments)

Top 3 States, Happiest place to live in the U.S. - 03/13/09 09:31 PM
I just read a Gallup Poll working with a mental health insurance survey. They stated that the three happiest places to live were. 1. Utah, which has great country and some of the best powder skiing in the world. 2. Wyoming, which has beautiful national parks and again great powder skiing in the likes of Jackson Hole. The reason for the ranking was mental health and family friendly. 3. Hawaii, beautiful beaches, lots of Aloha, and a great place to raise a family or chill on the beach. Lush tropical environment So today I thought I would work on my own (4 comments)

We all know that the real estate market has really slowed down. Maui condos for sale are not exemfrom this current market. So what can I do to sell my Maui home or condo more effectively? Pricing your condo to current sales in the last three months is really important. Have your Realtor do a price comparable of condos recently sold. You might also think about getting an early appraisal. This will also help all potential buyers, and sellers get a reality check. In some cases you might price (1 comments)
So what if there is a slump in the market! Wailea is prime real estate in the islands. Before this market slowed down prices were steadily climbing. If you look at past charts on the market, you will see the market with declines, but over all it has always climb higher. It is also a Buyers market, and inventory is up. So for the serious buyer, Wailea is now a great option for a condo or home.
