Day 22. It’s international mother earth day. Post a song for her

Shaka is lazy today, and grouchy too. Do some chores and cook after this to work my way back into my usual carefulness. Remember back during the TIMJ days when we had that regen button? That's what this Jam is now. If my computer is actually delivered today as they say again then I will have something to focus on with the moose playing on this shite computer. In the meantime, I will leave fine friends with this #ReJam from 8th December 2015.

This tune was written by my ex-wife's' uncle...Her family has a history of talent, especially her grandmother but more on that another day, maybe...This tune asks the question if the king and queen of Hawaii walked the land today, how would they feel? This is true for any culture. Can you imagine living in a clean landscape the being transported to the future with all of the construction where there used to be forests? I am sounding like an activist again but I am far from that (imagine some kind of friendly emoji here)

This link is about writing the song and the correct lyrics

The pic is of the Hokulea canoe. Back in the early naughts, I followed their voyage to Rapa Nui daily. @sisterj has been there. Right now they're voyaging around the world and are currently in Cape Town...next destination will be Mauritius in the Indian ocean. There will definitely be more about that in the future when I start posting some #HistoryJukes

Bruddah Iz brother Skippy was in the band also during this album.hey are the big guys with Iz on the left and Skippy on the right. This is one of my favorite groups.

Updating the notes making this a #HistoryJuke

The land in Hawaii is respected why the older Generations and some of the younger ones too. There are many stories to tell what's some of them being spooky. Maybe I will get to that later before Juketirement some more #earthsongs. I do feel like I am crossing the line sometimes one I talk about Hawaiian history because I feel like it loses some credibility coming from this haole.

Hawaii State Motto
"Ua Mau ke Ea o ka Aina i ka Pono"
Hawaii State Seal
(The Life of the Land is Perpetuated in Righteousness)
Adopted in July 31, 1843:
May 1, 1959
Language: Hawaiian
See Hawaii State Seal
"Ua Mau ke Ea o ka Aina i ka Pono" has been translated as: "The Life of the Land is Perpetuated in Righteousness."

The motto was adopted by the Kingdom of Hawai'i in 1843. The saying is attributed to King Kamehameha III as of July 31, 1843, when the Hawaiian flag once more was raised after a brief period of unauthorized ursurpation of authority by a British admiral

Shaka loves looking at these sunrises every morning out my window to the left of me! I have a door right there to feed the birds and the big dog 'Tank' and her little yapper friend 'chewy' from.
