Common Ground offers two events this month, which are open to the Community.  On October 25,  Family Game and Movie Night includes a barbeque dinner along with lawn and board games. The new CG Lounge is open for socializing and games during the first part of the evening, then a movie will be shown in the café.

Buddha's Hand Hawaiian Candy

This is what the Buddha's Hand candy looked like after 8 rounds. It looks jelly like around the edges, but was too bitter for my taste.

I decided to call the best person I know while researching my article, Buddha’s Hand, in today’s The Garden Island newspaper. Ken Love is a kind, gentle man who is well known in Hawaii and around the world as a tropical fruit expert. He maintains a website full of information about Hawaii’s fruit and was in a fascinating movie called Fruit Hunters.
