Alaska Airlines First Class Meal Service Hawaii

Last week we flew from OGG-PDX on Alaska, and were lucky to get an upgrade.

That's our house down there with the tennis court. OK, not really.

We were astounded when we ordered a scotch and got served a Highland Park 18.

On most airlines, you would be lucky to get Glenlivet or Black Label.
Alaska has raised the bar .. so to speak. 

We had a few more ...

The beef.

The pork.

The pie.

The sunset.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS30 Review

Below are pictures taken with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS30 unboxed today.

All were taken at 4:3 ratio, 18 MP, in "Auto," with zoom lengths from far to near.

No post-editing whatsoever on these, except the watermark.

All were taken mid-day, so the sun was mostly harsh .. except when it was cloudy.

She picked up the Moon on the 717 shot ...

The DMC-ZS30 replaced our DMC-ZS10, which replaced our DMC-ZS3. We like the Panasonics.

This "group photo" was taken with an iPhone 5S ... we'll send out some shots taken with that one soon. 

The Proud Bird Restaurant is CLOSING

Read about it HERE .

This sucks !

What also sucks is that we can't locate some pictures we took there that would really spice up this post.

**UPDATE** Will be open until 12/21/13.

N707JT Boeing 707 John Travolta

I know this plane has a Qantas history, but if it was mine I'd paint it in Western livery.

Just sayin'.

Note to Jet Johnny : nobody cares about Australia.

Our staff hasn't figured out when we took this picture, but they're trying to decipher.

Airbus A340 Hot & High Testing

OEAB airport, 1992.

Elevation: high. Temperature: hot. Sandstorm: yes.

Would have gotten better shots, but was crouched behind the door of my truck so I wouldn't get arrested for taking pictures at the airport.

Bid at the Bell Contest Taco Bell Hawaii

Just a note to the artist who designed the graphics for this promotion ...

Last time we checked, Air India doesn't fly to Hawaii.

Or maybe there is a new 747 nonstop between PHUP and VOHS?
