E Kipa Mai!


Aloha and Welcome to my Blog!

You will see that I have posted different types of entries to discover what can take place when using this kind of an online forum. I am excited about the possibilities!

I have included language lessons, music tutorials, a photo gallery, a digital story in movie form, a YouTube video feed, a few podcasts in iTunes, and a number of links to other sites I have built. Also included, are a few posted comments from visitors to my blog. Please feel free to leave a comment on any of the entries you visit.

Technological tools are evolving so quickly and they continue to become more and more user friendly. Hopefully, you will also catch the vision of where technology, such as this, is heading and where it can take us!

Mahalo nui for visiting,
