It's been awhile, and you might be wondering what Betty and I are doing. I'll let Betty "kiss and tell" in her posting. For me, I've been being a good author. 

You probably know about my two children's books, A WHALE'S TALE (Savant 2009) and THE TURTLE DANCES (Savant 2013), at least I hope you do! If you haven't read them, now is the time! They're available world-wide from The first is about ohana (Hawaiian for "family"), and the second is about enjoying moving -- "dance, dance, da...

Curse of the Green Gecko!

Posted by Betty and Dan on Tuesday, July 30, 2013, In : Dan's Blogs 
This Saturday, Betty and I made our weekly trek to Oahu's Northshore. The weather was beautiful. We drove to the end of the road in Mokuleia, and walked the shoreline, Betty looking for salt, and me for sea shells. Then it happened! Peeking out from behind a chunk of a'a (sharp) lava I saw a flash of brilliant red and green. I knew instantly it had to be the Green Gecko, who visits to warn believers just before a disaster.
