Picked up a couple more Halloween decorations this week. Already have the skeleton hanging under my Screw Pine and am going to create some fiber optic torches with the skulls.... :)

Thanks....good explanation! Probably because I'm 'old school' but I find the old fashioned way easier.

Maybe it all depends on whether or not someone is good with numbers.

I received 9 credits in math when I applied for college right out of high school...and have seen many others struggle with what I feel is very simple math like how to make change in their head - without a calculator or cash register to provide the answer.

It looks strange when written out, but the "new" way is exactly how I've always done math in my head. No one ever taught me that, but if I wrote it out stepwise, that's how it would look. The "old" way is how I do math on paper.

I've only done the big island for a work perk trip and didn't get to explore. Maui is my favorite place in the world
We were really lucky on that trip. Kilauea was erupting, so we got to hike to the lava flow. It's worth coming back to the island when you can explore.
