    Here's a song to end your Labor day weekend and if you are a Candidate, Cadet/Mid or a parent or just an old gaffer looking backwards this should speak to you. Whether you are Hawaiian or a haole, you ought to be able to appreciate the slack key style and the song about change, loss and home. So say good bye to summer and hello to the future on this note, From "Olomana":

    Another is "The Minstrel Boy". The poem was composed by Thomas Moore in the 1700's and then later set to music. If you listen closely it is played as background music in "Blackhawk Down" and many other movies. You can "Google" it and find the poem and some songs by Irish musicians. The words are poignant and relevant today. We used to hear it at many a Feish during the old competition days. Amazing that it is almost three hundred years old.
