I'm helping out here with my own small contribution to music & 'ukulele education- www.pekelosbooks.com [Mahalo nui for all the nice feedback from u UUers out there!]

So for those UU folks who want to plan ahead for next years uke fest here, remember to bring your-
- sunscreen & slippers
- swim wear & beach towels
- binoculars (if you want to watch some of the local surfers & wind sail surfers)
- warm clothes (if you want to take a trip to Haleakala summit- at about 10,000 ft up)
& ukulele of course:)
- no need to bring your alarm clocks as you can wake up to the local
roosters crowing!!

It's whaling season now - the whales are starting to arrive for their annual da kine season too.
The local food is so ono(hawaiian for delicious) here ..mmm...

ok- signing out now - gotta head back to where the action is!
