OK, here’s the deal – well, really, there is no ‘deal;’ but, at least for a while, the daily historical posts are back.
I took about a year off from these – well not really, I continue to get questions and comments and try to help where I can. Some may have also noticed periodic posts creeping back in.
Of note, I have been posting what I reference as Mayflower Monday posts for the past few months. These will continue.
I am involved on the Board of the Hawai‘i Chapter of the Mayflower Society and have been learning about the Mayflower and the Pilgrims and sharing what I have learned.
Another thing that will be coming back is Timeline Tuesday. However, in addition to summaries that describe the Islands in various timeframes, I will be adding some comparative timelines noting not only what was happening in Hawai‘i, but also what was happening the same time in other parts of the world.
And then, some summaries on the people, places and events in Hawai‘i’s history, including some ‘revivals’ of information from others (that I have used as source material for my summaries, as well as revisiting some of my favorites from the past).
I started posting historical September 30, 2011 – my father’s birthday. The posts will be back tomorrow, September 30, 2021.
I hope you enjoy them … and learn something. I have certainly learned a lot.

Great news! I had developed an addiction to your daily posts just about the time you “shut it down”, so in order to combat withdrawals, I enrolled in a Hawaiian Studies program at U of H, from here in CA, which I am still pursuing. Glad to have you voice and research skills back!!! Mahalo, Dave K.
