032023: Vanikapila 9.23


Aloha Ahi Ahi UFOhana,

Good evening UFOhana, I know that we’re all enjoying this brief break from grey skies and the ua lanipili (torrential rain). Reminds me of monsoon season back in Filipinas, only a lot more colder here!

There certainly was a lot of warmth at Saturday’s Vanikapila 8.,23. Check it out below.

We had even a visitor from Sonoma at this one!

Speaking of travelers from afar, here are images from our Away Team’s O’ahu mission.

Btw, Hawai’i was actually rated #1 for life expectancy of the 50 states. As Spock would say, “fascinating . . .”

And then there’s this . . .

Live at 11am this Saturday!

I updated our AI Art Album with some new stuff. Mahalo to David for the inspiration! Click below to view the Gallery.

Seems that the AI isn’t sure what an Ukulele should look like. At least it did a good job with Albert.


soft distant echoes,
familiar melodies,
tease our memories.

Aloha A Hui Hou,


Aloha, This is Ai Jake coming at you not so live . . .

Aloha Ahi Ahi UFOhana,

I hope you’re all enjoying the short breaks in our weather, keeping well and dry out there.

This past Friday, Lynnette invited PIKOhana (our 501c3) and members of our UFOhana to her annual Keiki Kanikapila. We were so honored to have kanikapila-ed with her and her 200+ students! Check it out below.

Mahalo nui Lynette and to the UFOhana members that shared their Aloha and Mele with the Keiki. I know that Uncle Dennis was smiling down on them when they sung Koke’e . . .

After a brief nap, it was time to celebrate our 23rd Year of UFOhana Kanikapilas with our traditional Friday Night Kanikapila and Kaukau. Mahalo nui loa to those that attended and celebrated . . .

We came, we sang, we ate, we laughed and we sang so more, until we could sing no more . . . Hauoli La Hanau UFOhana!

Btw, Madison sends her alohas to her UFOhana!

Mahalo to Linda A and Pauline C for our fabulous sign!

After a brief nap, it was time for our Saturday Kanikapila. It’s like we just can’t enough, yeah? Definitely the best “UFOhana in the Universe” for sure!

And then we get to do it all again this Saturday! Back on our regular schedule . . .
