Wild Chickens of Oahu
There are more chickens
in the world than any
other kind of bird.
Rachel Smith

Recent discoveries have confirmed one of the other suggestions made since the 1920's, that chicken were brought across the Pacific, island by island, by Polynesians, in

Clothes make the man.
Naked people have little
or no influence on society.
Mark Twain

It is as though the fabric
were indeed a natural
extension of the body,
or even of the soul. Quentin Bell

What you wear is how you
present yourself to the world,
especially today, when human
contacts are so quick.
Fashion is instant language. Miuccia Prada

Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone.
Kindness in another's trouble,
Courage in your own.

with a long feathered cape,
would have offered
physical and spiritual protection
during battle and signified social
and spiritual power
during ceremonial rites."
