Aloha! As the kama'aina say: Maui No Ka Oi! We had a great time in Hawaii. Went snorkeling and saw some cool coral, fish etc. Didn't see the humu-humu-nuku-nuku-a-pua'a, but we had a good time anyway (despite Tara's sea-sickness). Also saw a group of probably 200 spinner dolphins on the way out to Molokini, which was very cool.

Did the bike ride down Haleakala. That was sweet -- 38 miles downhill. Thats my kind of biking. They say we hit about 40 mph top speed. The road we biked down is in the Guinnes Book of World Records for the greatest altitude change (from 10,000 feet down to sea-level) in the shortest distance.

Everything else was awesome, too much to talk about. I'll get pictures up on the web site sometime.

When properly administered, vacations do not diminish productivity: for every week you're away and get nothing done, there's another when your boss is away and you get twice as much done.
