Please stand by for this rather breathless scoop: Portuguese sausage-flavored Spam has been developed by Hormel Foods Corp., and the company has chosen Hawaii to debut the new flavor.

"Hawaii is getting it first," Jennifer Nolander, Spam Brand product manager, told TheBuzz. In fact, "right now Hawaii is the only state that we're planning on selling it in," she said.

The local artists of American Samoa proudly put their original works on display for a Flag Day 2015 Art Show, which opened at the Pago Plaza on Wednesday, April 15, 2015.
 
Entitled “Faafetai Mo Lau Tautua” — which is “Thank you for your Service” the show is dedicated first to our military who have served in the past, as well as those who continue to serve. It is dedicated also to those who serve our people in many ways, be it as teachers, police, healthcare workers, and other public servants.

Cool Stuff: Folding 5" Firebox & Nano Gen 2

The character of the inventor often carries into his products. Steve Despain took a concept, made it uniquely his own, and keeps running with success and praise from those of us who travel, backpack, and have to walk into danger... often trusting our life with his products.
 
Yes, one of Steve's designs are always in my luggage, in my backpack or stashed at a buddy's place wherever I go. Steve is a reliable standup guy and so are his indestructible Firebox products.
