Good food, great fun and tremendous fellowship. The attached photos tell the story. Carl Kerby won the best dressed Hawaiian! And the Sumo wrestlerswell they were something else!

AUSTRALIAN CANE TOAD DISASTER
Talking about Hawaiiin 1935 Australia imported 101 Cane Toads to try to kill the Cane beetle that was destroying cane crops. This ended up being one of the most disastrous attempts at biological control ever carried out! One of the main problems was that the Cane beetle lived in the top of the cane plant and the Cane toad lived on the ground!!
A recent news article details all the problems with the Cane Toads that have become a terrible menace in Australia. In this article, we also read this statement:
Since their introduction cane toads have evolved bigger legs to help them move faster, expanding their territory westward by around 40 km (25 miles) a year.Well the toads are still toads and they still have legsbut this is an example of natural selection! The cane toads with the bigger legs obviously survive very well, and are taking over Australia and destroying native animals. The Australian military are even being asked to help eradicate them! You will find this interesting article at Yahoo News.
