David Spotted on Oahu!
Of course I’m leading off with this story! Pamela Pike is on vacation in Hawaii (this was news to me lol) and she was visiting a popular attraction – the Macadamia Nut Farm – which is a lot of fun and very interesting. You may think that chocolate covered macadamia nuts might be the best thing featured there, but as Pam shares her story with us – nestled among the fragrance of plumeria and ginger they have something even sweeter on display!
Presently on vacation in Hawaii and with all the beauty around me I found something else I have always considered most beautiful, David Archuleta. Sitting among the floral scented soaps and perfumes at the Macadamia Nut Farm were these pictures of David.
My thoughts immediately were to take these pictures and share with all of you and to remind us all no matter it seems where we go he is always with us in some way. I always felt as fans we were the ones watching out for him but as time passes I do believe it is the other way around.
A conversation started with a couple of the employees and they were excited to tell me about his visit and how they enjoyed meeting him. His pictures were placed in an area of honor with other people of importance who had visited their farm.
It was an end to a long and beautiful day exploring the Island of Oahu but stumbling upon David in the process was a candy coated delight.
Now back to exploring the Island of Oahu!
Thanks Pam for sharing this amazing story with us! I would be lying if I said this didn’t tug at my heart, remembering that David was actually here – visiting the tourist attractions and getting to know the Islands and the people – all together now:
WE MISS YOU DAVID!

TOSOD Weekend Celebration!
TOSOD is such an amazing album that it deserves a whole weekend of celebration! Fans have weighed in on their favorite songs from the album, and as predicted – we love ALL the songs! Every single song was mentioned at least once as being someone’s favorite, and many songs received multiple mentions! Since it’s Saturday, and we have a little more time to spend watching vids, I’m going to take the liberty to post a vid of each song from the album – any objections? I didn’t think so lol!

Here’s the Ustream Live Chat that David did on 10/06/10 right after the TOSOD debut – it’s almost an hour of him answering fan questions and being random and adorable. Thanks to Martha for the find!
