BOB AND CAMILLE AT HOME ON MAUI
It takes a little effort but Bob is up to the task of screening our home compost for use in the garden.
OUT OF A SOW'S EAR
We didn't feel like digging this stump out so we turned it into a rock garden on April 28.
SHAUN'S SPECIAL SAUCE
Believe it or not, this guy can cook. Here he is making a creamy non-dairy sauce to go with fried hash brown potatoes at a recent Maui Recycling Service meeting. We get together every other weekend to share ideas as well as a meal and some beers.
54/24 BOB CHANGES OIL
On April 24th, Bob tackled the task of changing the oil in Ruben's Kann I truck. We can now add the hat of biodiesel mechanic to his collection. This will save the business money which allows us to buy synthetic oil. We can now say that the Kann I truck, like the Bio Pod, does not use any form of fossil fuel or oil.
EARTH DAY ADVOCACY
The County Recycling Section lent us a sign and we spent the day furthering the recycling cause on Maui.
Earth Day is our favorite event because it is colorful and filled with people who already care about the Earth.
Tradition dictates that Bob and Shaun take time out for a game of hacky sack and then a rest in the shade.
Shirley paid us a visit on the 20th and we enjoyed an afternoon of Solving the Problems of the World.
As did this colorful fellow on the 15th.
GETTING TO THE ROOT OF IT
The Shoveler strikes again! This stump finally had to go and Bob is really digging it. It was so tenacious, it seemed it must be connected to the center of the earth. If someone wanted to get a handle on the world, this stump would have been the right thing to grab.
What Stump? Never mind that "Day Off" Bob was talking about when we got out of bed this morning. Once he started messing around with this thing, he just HAD to finish the job. When all was said and done, we were ready to plant more strawberries.
By April 28th, the strawberries had been planted and the sod replaced. Doesn't that look nice?
THE ART OF TRASH
Maui Recycling Group set up a table with refreshments at the Ka'ahumanu Shopping Center April 12th and hosted an art show and entertainment. Bob and Camille volunteered to serve refreshments and were asked to wear something "Trashy." Camille is getting her hair done by a professional here. Shane responded to the question, "What should I do with my hair" by winding up the front part in paper napkins. Shane is visiting her cousin, Joy and came to the show to help out.
THE OPENING ACT AND THE MAIN EVENT IN BACKSTAGE MODE
These serious young ladies put on a great exhibition of African dancing.
Yak, yak, yak. Why is it that when women get in a group they all begin talking at once?
LIVE, FROM MAUI
It doesn't get any trashier than this. Some of these models are wearing trash and grocery bags and others are wearing cast-off clothing that has been artfully sewn together by Maryls. Maryls models a black and white ball gown in her purple wig.
WORK WITH A VIEW
One of two new Trout's Yard Service accounts located near Poli Poli Road in upcountry Maui.
USED COOKING OIL
This is what biodiesel looks like before it becomes fuel.
THE BUSY BEE
Camille makes lists and arranges flowers - talk about multi-talented!
