Well I tried Facebook for a couple of weeks but aborted the trip yesterday. It's a very cool tool and am aghast at the traffic it generates but it is almost like leading another life. Also I was totally crushed when I got my friend requests denied and felt poorly when I rejected people I had no desire to know any better. Plus it's too hard to make yourself sound interesting. Facebook has many great things going for it and I had some fun - It just wasn't for me. FBFF-TTFN

I went to the Thatch tiki bar last weekend and downed the best mai tai I have ever had. Recommended. Also talked to Wildsville Man Rory Snyder about vending in his Tiki Caliente event which happens in May. It is smaller than Tiki Oasis in San Diego and the timing of it is better for me. I will contact him the first of the year and get in.
- Frog Island Tikis
- I started carving tikis in 2000 after a trip to Maui. I love and appreciate Polynesian culture, but rather than follow traditional ways, I put my own rather twisted view on the matter. I build each tiki with a protective edge to watch over the owner's well being. Most of them are of redwood or cedar, but my brother-in-law Jimbo brings me excellent palm from California. I start with a chainsaw and then really get into them with chisels, files, and knives. I have read that the ONLY way to breath life into an idol is through use of hand tools, but if primitive man had access to a chainsaw I know he would have used it. Tikis are for fun. Mahalo- CY
