051021: Vanikapila 20.21


Aloha Ahi Ahi UFOhana,

Just wanted to get out quick post while I have two working eyes . . .

I found out what caused our Audio Outage last week. It was caused by two things, a security patch for my Anti-Virus and an OBS audio driver update. Because both were patched around the same time. The AV software didn’t recognize the new OBS audio driver, so it erred on the safe side and disabled all the Windows audio access rights/permissions in OBS. Once I whitelisted OBS (gave OBS the proper Windows rights) audio was once again enabled. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for this week’s Vanikapila (see below), 11am – 1pm, Saturday the 15th.

Please text me at 415-300-7804 to give us an idea of how many chairs to put out. Again, text Linda at 415-572-1175 if you can’t get through the Livestream chat board for song requests and/or comments. Mahalo for your patience and understanding.

Though we couldn’t connect with our Cyber Ukulele Pilots in Vanikapila land we did have a squadron of Ukulele Pilots in the backyard . . .

Mahalo to the OKers that kept the Strums going, to Pauline, Don, John, Melann, Cindy and the others that helped with setup and breakdown of the UFOhana Air Strip.

I want to wish all our May Keiki a Hauoli La Hanau! I believe Ralph’s is up this Wednesday, one day just before Marion’s.

A couple of upcoming Events:

The first being a Sunday Kanikapila for all 2X Vaxers at Ralph’s Hale on May 23, 12pm – 3pm-ish, weather allowing. Please text me at 415-300-7804 if you will be attending.

The second event is another 2X Vaxers event. June 5, Mike has graciously offered to sponsor a BBQ (catered by one of his favorites) 6pm – 9pm here at Vendola Cafe. BYOBeverage, he will provide the BBQ.Please RSVP ASAP if you will be attending so he can give the caterers a head count. For you Vegetarians out there, you’re welcome to BYOFood and hang out with your ‘Ohana.

Remember that both events are for Double (2x) Vaxers only!

Ok, time to rest up for tomorrow . . .


hot brown crunchy grass,
distant sun baked hills waver,
cool ukes in the shade.

Mahalo Nui Loa Ka Kou!
