Hmmm. Groceries and tents. That's not how I pictured a vacation in Hawaii.

I was expecting to see Spam on the grocery shelves.

I'm curious about how the wages compare with the prices.

I'm too old to be climbing coconut palms in search of dinner!

Now I get it. High cost of living = homelessness.

I have a friend who used to be a fireman in Hilo. He was telling me that city workers in the State of Hawaii were the lowest paid compared among other city/government workers in the rest of the country.

My wife bought a carton of Spam the other day at Costco and was surprised at how much they've gone up in price.
