Wine Gurl: Based on your tasting notes, it appears that the wines are not in the robust category based on the wine types sampled. But it brings up a question, do you think female wine makers will have a softer more feminine wine palate and produce wines that are not as robust and edgy? I tend to like Bordeaux style over Burgundy because they are more feminine and more complex vs the massive and macho style. I rather have the wine compliment the fuud rather than have the fuud compliment the wine.

MC: I take it if you are "hard core" Trekkie, you turn off your critical brain and enjoy. For the rest of us this is an XL bag of popcorn for action, audio, and CGI!!!

@Melissa808 Delicate Blossom: Ok, thanks, I see where you are coming from. So NSHNL is a "reactor" rather than a "promoter" to influence their clients to move in certain ways to attract more customers based on their experience in seeing the results of various attractions and venues.

@Melissa808 Delicate Blossom: You mentioned your part in the weekend festival/fair, so I was thinking aloud about how a social media maven would approach how social media plays a part in the the historical aspects of keeping a "unique culture" alive. I have no idea what you are planning to say but thought about how contemporary media is evolving and how it can play a part on preserving cultural history. With the massive amount of eyes, ears, and thoughts floating through the electronic social media, how does one possibly assimilate all of this to get to the core of those cultural changes...to me this is challenging. Reporting what you see and hear may not be the essence but merely symptomatic of what is or will happen as cultural change. Example: Has "Jawaiian" or reggae music become a force in the emerging Hawaiian culture? How far will it go? Will it morph to something else? Where does Delicate Blossom see herself as a recorder of cultural history using social media? Do you consider yourself a recorder or more of an activist in promulgating change?

MC: Mother McG plot lines are a bit tired already. Yeah, the airport scene was not really necessary unless they are going to bring something on in the finale. Could not believe McG joined his mom on this criminal activity. Regardless of the person, breaking and entering is not legal. Where is the ethics officer for the State? Where is the IG? The show is becoming a melange of sub plots that is hard to keep track of and makes the overall show so disjointed. Soon we will need a "blog" to keep track of what is going on!! LOL What is annoying is how Danno pronounces "yakuza", like a lot of people pronounce "karate"...and "karaoke"...and "samurai"...and "Honolulu"...the anglicizing of words is getting to be too much.

Delicate Blossom: Did not Kanemitsu have to close to take care of some sanitation issues at one time? It would be interesting to hear of how social media is keeping the "unique culture" alive. This is especially true for the ex-pats who are all over the world these days. I guess the vids and pix are a lasting record of what is happening and evolving. Perhaps a more accurate record than the archives with limited pictures and written descriptions. The question becomes when does a recorder know what he/she is recording is a true depiction of what is happening in a culture? Or is it just one of many interpretations...??

GS: Wow...Koreans venturing into Mexican cuisine. That should be a nice fusion since both are known for spicy tastes.. The gastronomic world is really becoming quite mixed up. Even Europeans are starting to do more Asian things.

Delicate Blossom: OK, saw Cat's blog and yours...I'm full from the pix. I am familiar with the location...there was a stabbing there once not too far back. Isn't it too close to Hawaii News Now for Olena? Either that or she hangs with the competition after work. The absolute blast would be the Mattress Guy from across the street come in and sell you guys a mattress to moe moe after fuud and drinks!!

Delicate Blossom: You were trying to get blood out of stone! Great chefs usually develop some presentation skills to help them sell their creative wares. This guy is young and he doesn't appear to have a good mentor to round him out or he is lacking in outgoing personality. It's going to be a tough road....
