Greetings Tiki people! I just happened to stumble upon this site while I was Google-ing Solar Powered Tiki Torches. I am happy to have found it and I haven't had a chance to look around yet, so I thought I'd stop in here and introduce myself.
First of all, my first intro to Tiki was the TikiBar TV Podcast on I-Tunes about 3 years ago. It was the first time I'd ever heard of I-Tunes or podcasts. So I was lucky enough to witness the very first episodes of TikiBar TV, and of course, being a red blooded young man, I fell in love with Lala... and the show, of course!(if you don't know what I am talking about go to tikibartv.com and have a look around) So needless to say, I couldn't wait till the next episode. I bought a TikiBar T-Shirt and cool TikiBar hat and was kinda hooked on Tiki from then on. Later on that summer, my Dad was planning a big family reunion party in his very large back yard out in the country. But first he wanted to replace his small back steps with a nice patio deck, so we tore up the old one (3' x 8'), and built a new one (20' x 30'). I hauled the sections of the old deck out by the fire pit to be used as firewood for the party. The morning of the big day I showed up early to help out and for some reason I wanted to build a Tiki Bar, so my uncle, Cousin and I built a Tiki Bar using mostly the remains of the old deck. We decked it out in Christmas lights, hooked up my I-Pod, stuck in a few Tiki Torches and it was the life of the party! A few months went by and my Mom called me to ask what I was going to do with the Tiki Bar. It had served it's purpose and she wanted it outta there! So I took it apart and loaded it into the back of my Dodge Caravan. It fit like it was made to go back there. I brought it home and set it up in my sunroom. I've since taken it apart and brought it to 3 more cool parties. My plans for the Tiki Bar this year is to make it totally solar powered, so that I can run my 30 watt Altec Lansing subwoofer computer speaker system, hooked up to my I-pod, and some flickering LED lights, all plugged into a 800 watt inverter which is tied to a 12 Volt Deep Cycle Marine Battery, which is charged in the daytime by a Solar Panel on the roof. That is my goal for this year, so if you know anyone who has talked about a similar set up using solar power, I would love to read about it because I am trying to learn as much as I can. Sorry about the long drawn out story, I guess I just got carried away!! Peace

Aloha all

New member in London Ontario Canada, eh.
My Grandmother was born (1908) in Hawaii and raised there, so have always had Tikis and other Hawaiian/ Polynesian/ Japanese art and stuff around. Even have an original Leeteg painting! As a kid I use to spend ALOT of time studying that picture,lol.
I have just recently started on the Tiki mug collecting. I'm kind of oblivious to things till it catches my eye and really didn't know about them.
About four months ago my girlfriend of seven years dumped me (this gets better, I hope?) and to ease my sorrow was doing some E-Bay'ing. I happened to run across the Tiki Farm O'opu Hue mug/bowl. Back story here…two years ago the girlfriend and I were in Hawaii and went scuba diving (first for both of us), she was really nervous but went down. Well the whole time she was down there, there was this Puffer fish that hovered right on her shoulder. The dive instructors took our picture under water and sure enough there was the Puffer fish on her shoulder in the picture. So after seeing this Tiki Farm O'opu Hue I had to get it for her. She really loved it. Still didn't help, but I had discovered the wonderfull world of Tiki mugs! Well we have been talking the last couple of weeks and she even came over to my house a couple of times. By now I have about 32 Tiki mugs and she thought (like me) that they are the coolest things. Well she told me tonight she would like to see about us getting back together. I don't know if it was due to the power of the Tiki or not, but I'll run with it,lol!
So that's my story so far....



Cool story Dude! The Power of the Tiki...eh!
peace

Welcome Tiki-Den. The Atlantic provinces have been severely underrepresented on TC.

Hey, you're probably the first person to pick up on the wrestling reference.

Tiki Central doesn't have the concept of "Sticky posts that people can still post to". it's a limitation of the system. Someday that may change, but for now, a post needs to be locked before it can be sticky. Sucks.

WOW,

The true identity of SDT unveiled:



Sweet Daddy Siki started wrestling in 1955 in Artisa, New Mexico. He also did some training in Los Angeles with Sandor Szabo and Ray Ortega. He says he was about 180 pounds when he started, but within three years weighed in at 230.

He moved to Toronto in 1961 because it was a good central location to travel across North America. "When I came to Toronto, I said 'My God, this is God's country," he said recently. "I fell in love with it." He still lives in Toronto today, and uses it as a base for his country & western band and his work as a DJ.

It's like the caped crusader unmasked.

DC

Howdy!
I joined because I want to keep a weather eye out for anything to do with The Tonga Room of the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco. Since there's a forum dedicated to the subject that's where I'll be. I found my way here by way of Radio Bamboo. Happy they're pod casting again! I often hang out in the chat at
www.luxuriamusic.com where tiki lounge exotica is held in high esteem. Been in love with tiki all my life: From my dad's stack of Martin Denny records to my first visit to Disneyland's Enchanted Tiki Room as a kid. I'm happy to be here and look forward to new friendships.

Aloha from Hotlanta! I have found this sight to be awsome and had to join. I was born in Honolulu and have since moved around the world. I collect Rat Fink items, Shag items, vintage wind-up robots, and Tiki mugs. I love anything hawaiian and drinking Tiki drinks! I am also in the process of building a 1939 Ford Rat Rod---:)
