    Did you have your fill of flavor-packed, summer-ripened tomatoes this season? My garden yielded the best heirloom tomatoes ever this year. They’ve been the star of salads, pastas, pizza, salsa, and bruschetta. After an abundance of warm days and some quenching rains, the vines show no sign of quitting yet. And when something tastes this good, I want more. So back to the archives I go, for one more harvest of tempting tomato recipes.

    When it comes to hurricanes, to paraphrase an old adage, June is too soon, July-standby, August-a must, September — remember, then remember again October and November because it is not over until December! We have been very fortunate in Hawaii to have been free of storms this year, but not so in the southern United States.

    This week, I was inspired by a sign on the First Baptist Church on Pensacola Street here in Honolulu. Their sign read, “CH _ _ C H – what’s missing? U R !”

Two years later, the volcano remains at advisory/yellow.

    Hawaii is the true melting pot in the U.S. with many ethnicities represented in our community. Yet, many of us have lost the ability to speak our native language. I was not able to speak Korean but heard it around the house growing up. It wasn’t until I studied in Korea for a year in my college life that I really learned the language. Why is it important? Learning a language really helps you to better understand the culture of the country. Your scope of friends will expand tremendously, it can help your business, retain your cultural identity and also help others who may end up visiting that country. The more languages you speak, you open more dimensions to your life that can only help you. Many of our viewers enjoy our dramas by reading the English subtitles but if you could understand Korean, the drama could end up being twice as enjoyable as you will better understand the nuances of the language and culture. There are 23 Korean language schools in the State of Hawaii.

    Lorraine asks: I have heard that growing veggies aquaponically is actually a good way to reduce water consumption. Is that true? If so, how can I get an aquaponics system started?
