Agriculture! Who’d a thunk it?

Lesson #1 about Hawaii:

As a state, they don’t take too highly to the introduction of non-indigenes plant or animal life.
We found this out on the plane, when the stewardess (Flight Attendant?)  happily  announced, “And now it’s time to fill out your Agricultural Releases!  Just remember," She gushed,  "If you bring any Animals, Fruits, or Vegetables into Hawaii, it’s a $25,000 fine!” (This is true.)



“Uh-oh,” the blond said, gazing forlornly at the bucket of Raspberries and Blueberries we had brought on the plane, in a vain attempt to pretend we were eating “Healthy” on this trip.
“What should we do?”  The Colonel wondered.  “Should we try to eat them all before the plane lands?”
 
Big mistake.
“I know!” I effused.  “I can take them to the Lav facility and flush them!  If urban myths are true, the heathy snacks will end up spewed across the Pacific, rather than incriminating us in a scandal that would forever be known as ‘Berrygate.”
It ended up being nothing quite so dramatic.  The Stewardess came around with a trash bag.
“Hey. Can I throw these away?” I asked.
“Sure.” She said.
 
Another minor crisis averted.

There is also the almost perfect symmetry of the replica watches - that would be perfect save for the text and numeral differences. My first theory is that simple two-tone or other contrasts in just a few colors are the west way to create visually attractive rolex replica sale watch face. Start to get too many colors on the dial and people might think the design too busy, too cohesive - though at the same time one color can make replica watches uk dial look flat or boring from afar. Each of these rolex replica uk Daytona watch perfectly captures this idea of simple contrasting colors - here in black and white. New or old, this look is timelessly well done in this range of rolex replica uk Daytona dials. The best part of the color system is that the replica watches sale look good from inches away or from across a restaurant. So why does it look so good? Well part of it is what i think is the brain's ability to perceive complexity or "multi-function" in small spaces.
