Ka’anapali Kicks It Up Another Notch in Paradise!

Getting Ready for My New Favorite Golf Adventure

I have often thought that you can tell more about a person by what they read, watch, listen to and do for fun than what they say about themselves.  It’s why I ask people I meet for the first time what their favorite books/movies/past times/music are.   If  you were to ask me that question, here’s what I’d say… Read More »
