I have resurrected the Guestbook. However, I did not migrate all the entries from the previous webhosting company's server to the new server because that would have been a rather complex task for me. Accordingly I have just reproduced the most recent entries.

Although you can sign the Guestbook without a password, you'll need one if you wish to add a comment to an existing post. This is to discourage the spammers from littering the board. I'll e-mail you the password.

The fact that you are viewing this page means that I have successfully migrated the class website to a new webhosting company's server. The reason for the migration is that the previous company's services have been somewhat unreliable. I'm hopeful that you'll have more pleasant experience here.

You might have noticed that the Guestbook is missing from the menu. That's because I'm considering what to do with it. Spammers seem to use it much more often than the legitimate visitors.

Presently residing in Mililani, my husband Wilbert and I are both retired and have a son working in Honolulu. We cherish the continuing get togethers hosted many times by the families of Marvin Hamai, June & Wayne Ogawa, and others for us and those visiting Oahu.

For many years I've been meaning to and finally put my thoughts in the following poem. In loving memory, I acknowledge English teacher, Mrs. Mildred Bowen, who nurtured and made literature and composition a joy to learn. This ode is dedicated to her and all of you, MHS '65 classmates and friends.

Message from Reuben on the 50th Class Reunion

The number 50 represents several significant milestones in our lives. Reaching the age of 50 is important but 60 is now considered to be the new 50. Regardless, everyone in the Class of 1965 reading this has achieved both. Celebrating one’s Golden Wedding Anniversary is another significant milestone. Many of our classmates are inching ever so close to that magic number.

Well, wouldn’t you know it but in 2015 we all have the golden opportunity to celebrate something that comes around only once in a lifetime. Time is passing by ever so quickly but who could imagine that next year we will celebrate our 50th year since we graduated from Maui High School.

continued ...

Come and join classmates in celebrating the 50th Class Reunion of the Maui High School Class of 1965:

Location: The California Hotel in Las Vegas
When: October 9-10, 2015

More details such as registration forms, specific reunion activities and travel/lodging arrangements from Hawaii and the Mainland will be provided in later email and Class Website updates. Mark these dates down on your calendar. Please consider making the trip to Las Vegas for this “Once in a Lifetime” reunion.

The Reunion Planning Committee is working diligently to ensure that we all have an enjoyable time renewing and/or making new friendships. The committee consists of your following classmates: Sharon Mijo Beam, ...

I added another shoot-them-up type game on the Games page. This is a sequel to "Avoid the Eagles", and in this game the bird gets to fight back with a hightech weapon. I know it's a mindless game, but it'll help you improve your reflex. 'Hope you like it!


I noticed that a recent update with a bug to Internet Explorer 11 causes my games from running correctly if one resizes the browser window and refreshes it. If you're unfortunate enough to be using IE11 (at least on Windows 7), do not resize the game board. Also, I recomend switching to a better browser such as Firefox or Chrome.

No Relocation of the Class Website



After testing a duplicate website on another web-hosting company's server, I have concluded that the services and reliability provided by that company is not much better. Also, it appears that the current hosting company is making improvements after receiving my complaints. Accordingly, in order to avoid additional expenses as well as the hassle of moving the domain name registration, I have decided to remain with the current web-hosting company.

If the reliability issues arise again, I will reconsider relocation at that time. Meanwhile, if you happen to encounter a problem, please feel free to contact me. Thank you.

Relocating the Class Website



Since the reliability of the current web-hosting company's service has declined considerably, I'm planning to move the website to another company. Therefore, please be informed that I may not be updating the site for two to three weeks.

Even after the relocation, the URL of the class website will remain www.mauihigh65.com so that you can continue to use the current URL. However, after the relocation the Guestbook will not be available until I implement it on the new server.

Another game to support your gambling habits?!

I finished writing a Pai Gow Poker game. Since the game logic is very complex, this one required me to massage and torture my brain a lot.  I can see why I didn't choose programming as my career.


It seems the programs I write undergo spontaneous mutations to generate own bugs!   I hope you enjoy playing Pai Gow Poker at the MHS65 Casino and save some cash by not having to visit Vegas frequently, or at least practice a lot for free.

After customizing three games that I had purchased, I became brave and decided to try writing my own game - a blackjack game. To my surprize it turned out very nicely! You need not pat me on the back, as my hand is already there.

I finished converting all of the slide shows on the Photo Albums page to new formats so that everything on that page can now be viewed without Adobe Flash Player. The new slide show program works pretty much like the old one. I haven't added a "help" page because I think everything is pretty much self-explanatory. If you need help or if you notice something strange, do let me know. Now, I need to convert all of the videos.

Just increased the font size for the response section in the Guestbook to make it easier for the old eyes.
