Kealoha O‘hana Reunion on May 11

Time to round up all the old folks as well as the young adults, children and everyone else on my Mom’s side of the family for an upcoming reunion that is coming quicker than I would like to think.

It will be a good time to catch up with everyone and anyone who comes, take another round of new photos and hopefully pass the baton on to the next generation of Kealohas and related relatives as this o’hana moves further into the 21st century and beyond.

This reunion will be a one day affair to talk story, exchange ideas for keeping and staying in touch with each other, share genealogical information and get to know each other better…. especially the older folks getting to know who all the young ones are.

Years ago when we had a few reunions, I shot a ton of pictures at these, many of them children with their parents and grandparents, uncles and aunties, etc. Now the children are all grown up, many with their own children… and grandchildren… maybe.

So it is a good time for me, at least to pass on the legacy photo duties and digital copies to someone else. If anything, this should be interesting and fun.

Aloha. Mel

Is Giving Second Chances Worth It?

From Question Diary on my Android comes this:

Is Giving Second Chances Worth It? – January 29, 2019.

Depending on the person or the situation, giving someone a second chance is worth it if you want to maintain a good relationship among friends and relatives. I think I can give people a second chance if the transgression is something that can be easily forgiven.

There are times and situations where giving someone or something a second chance is out of the question. For example if someone commits a serious capital crime against another is final. No second chances… go straight to jail.

Second chances for me are often not given to products that have failed me. An example I like to point out are devices that have built in batteries that users cannot replace.

I loved my Apple iPod Touch that I bought in 2010 for $400. It worked fine for 8 years until it’s built in battery just refused to hold a charge and the device would not even play when docked into an AC powered device.
Up to that time, it was working just fine.

Bad Apple.

The battery in the iPod Touch is next to impossible to remove and replace. Apple just wants you to buy a new one. I paid $400 for this. I expected it to last a lot longer.

No second chance that I will ever buy another Apple iPod Touch or an iPhone (which I never owned).
