Redeeming Breeze

Who lives on a boat and writes books for his dinner?
Ed Robinson, that's who.

Redeeming Breeze is the newest book (Until the next one comes out in a few weeks) in a series by Ed Robinson.
This book is an easy read, entertaining and available in paperback and on Kindle.

I always try and let you all know when I find a book worth the time it takes to read, and let's face it, it takes me forever to read a book. This one is certainly #KanunaApproved.

With tales of scandalous lawyers,  Russian Mafia, sail boats and swanky resorts in the Cayman Islands, this book has a pretty solid grasp on my attention from the first page.

As a matter of fact, I recommend all of Robinson's books, beginning with Leap of Faith,  Quit your Job and Live on a boat! Some are stories of fiction, some are stories based on real life and some are like life's instruction manual. I think you'll like all of them!

Robinson is a regular guy who did what we all dream of doing. Check out his books on Amazon and his blog HERE.
You can also keep up on Facebook.

If you like boats, rum drinks, adventure and inspiration, you will love this series!

As always, the No BS guarantee: This was not requested, not paid for and not anything but my opinion!

Have a great week my friends!

Time to help out!

Using what you have.

As we clean out the closets, wipe down the desks, set up the new technology and watch streaming movies... We are distracted by the news of a catastrophic EF-3 Tornado in Rowlett TX.

We had a big tornado back in the ‘90s that ravaged our local community, so we know exactly how devastating these events are.

As a newly licensed Ham Radio Technician, I spent some time on the radio Sunday evening. I was talking with folks in the Dallas, Garland and Wylie areas of TX. They indicated a much larger area of damage than the nightly news is reporting. As usual, the news is focusing on the most severe areas and ignoring the wide-spread damage.

Even more storms were rolling in as I signed off of their Ham Network, hopefully they all stayed rain and thunderstorms.

As I’ve done before, and as I will do again, I’m asking all of our friends and family to buy these people a beer!

Take the $10 bill you would use to head down to your local pub and have a brew and donate it to the Red Cross!

We are packing up boxes of the stuff we have collected as we pair down after the holiday, and we will be sending it off to help those in need.

I will also be sending a cash donation, as the need seems to revolve around baby cloths in the Rowlett area, and we just don’t have those any more.


I know that the people who visit BigKahunaBrew.com are good people, and I know you will all do what you can. Even if you can’t spare the cost of a beer or cocktail, I know that you will send good wishes, prayers, vibes and any other sort of well wishes to the people who had a really suck Christmas weekend.

Thanks to everyone who tries to help!

Oh, Jamaica!

Many a book have been  penned about my friend and favorite literary character, Buck Reilly! With the release of Maroon Rising, there are now five.

As much as I fancy myself a teller of stories, a chaser of adventures and a man who uses words as my magic, I admit that I have fallen under the spell of John H. Cunningham, as he is a master of all three.
I cannot speak badly of Green to Go, (book 2) Crystal Blue, (book 3) or Second Chance Gold, (book 4) because they are all great, but Maroon was always one of my favorite colors, and Cunningham does seem to have a way with colors! This is my favorite installment since Red Right Return.

I found the search function in kindle to be quite useful because there were a few times when I had to go to look up the places and people in the story. As always, Cunningham is spot on. The meticulous research that goes into each of these books is a big part of what makes them so fascinating to me!
Cunningham had me checking the web for definitions, pronunciation and location of all sorts of places in Jamaica!

Oh, Jamaica... Yes, that is where this story takes us, through Negril, Kingston, Trench Town and more remote locations that you are going to have to map for yourself!

No, Buck isn't a real person, and the stories are all made up, but Cunningham has added a new depth of historical and geographical accuracy to this adventure... Though he is still using a 20 PSI scuba tank!!

That's an inside joke you will understand if you read my review of Book #1, HERE.

After five books of Buck's antics, I hope that Cunningham doesn't ever run out of colors!

In Maroon Rising, we travel through the Blue Mountains, up the hills and down the valleys, we travel by truck, jeep, 4-wheeler and along the coast, by boat and the beast, Riley's Grumman Widgeon.

Oh Snap!

Well, would you look at that!

My Daughter talked me into snap chat!

At first, I saw absolutely no use for this app, and I still think it’s probably relatively limited, but I have thought of a way to make it interesting.

I have one fairly unique talent. I can make decisions. Right or wrong, based on fact, fiction, situation or personal preference, I’m always quick to make a decision.

So, If you ever think to yourself, What Would Kahuna Do (WWKD?) I have a solution:
Add me on snap chat and send me your decisions.

Confusing wine list? I’ll help you pick.

Need help figuring out what beer to choose off the menu? I can do that!

Standing in front of the rum section at the liquor store and can’t figure out if you want the Abuelo or the Bacardi Silver? Yup... Send me a pick and I’ll help you!

Having a hard time deciding if you want the Ahi Poke or the Swordfish.... Heck, even if you can’t decide between the Big Mac or the Quarter-pounder with Cheese... I’ve got an opinion and I’m not afraid to share.

Take the advice, leave the advice, but at least you’ll know what I would choose.

Of course, we welcome other snaps too. If you follow along with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, you know I dig a whole lot of different stuff! So feel free to share away! 

Scan the code above and let’s see what you’ve got!
