Thinking of heading to Hawaii...

So my wife and I were thinking of hitting the big island (Kona) Hawaii sometime soon and was wondering what the cost of food etc is? We have a real nice place through vacation rentals by owner so we have a house with a kitchen so no need to eat out for 2 weeks straight. Any thing cool we should know?

You'll notice prices only in the little grocery stores and at the gas stations. Get the Sunset mag for HI; has all kinds of hidden stuff.

I stayed in Maui for a couple of weeks and didn't notice too much of a difference in prices there versus here in Austin. A few cents here, 10 cents there, but not a whole lot of difference price wise in the normal big stores. Gas wasn't that bad either, but that was a couple of years ago. You can price check everything from your laptop if you need to, just put in the ZIP and whatever you want to get. That's how we budgeted before we went.

You know what?
You're absolutely right, who'd want to spend that kind of money when one can use their own for free..

It's that what I am trying to figure out is... Well um.....
How is it that for a company like Starbucks that has overpriced uppity garbage, how are they managing a financial cap of just slightly over 47 BILLION?
47 BILLION divided by $4.35 cups of coffee is a lot of coffee. I know I drink a lot, but I don't drink that much, so I guessing there's quite a few others who are too. Like a lot a lot.

This is just according to some financial place know as NASDAQ at time of writing this post:

http://www.google.com/finance?client=ob&q=NASDAQ:SBUX


I kinda wish I had a product that has overpriced uppity garbage and could profit half... no wait, fine, I'll even settle for a 3rd of a financial cap of 47 BILLION.

I could buy a really nice bike and have it delivered to me on top of a Jumbo jet at the LAX, kind of like how NASA delivered the Space Shuttle to the LAX a few weeks ago.

Interesting, here's what I would do. Stop going to starbucks twice a week. Put the money saved under your pillow or in your moms sockdrawer or something similar. In about 6 years you'll have enough money to by yourself a car so the chick behind the counter will finally go out with you. I'm a problem solver, that's what I do.
