The photographers at Mary Gillespie capture coy, intimate snapshots during one-on-one boudoir photo shoots. Ladies sit down for dollops of color, rouge, and lipstick from a professional makeup artist before slinking into the first of three alluring outfits. Subjects reveal as much or as little skin as they like, draping themselves in pearls or wisps of white bed sheets while dishing out incendiary eyewinks. Mary Gillespie's all-female staff puts subjects at ease and creates an environment where ladies feel free to prance, smile, and pose in front of two different backdrops. After the shoot, subjects receive a digital disc of eight edited images, any of which can be printed for an additional fee, ensuring long-time enjoyment should CD drives melt from the images’ body heat.

Cecilio & Kapono have crafted breezy Polynesian tunes since 1973, releasing more than a dozen albums and touring with such notables as Peter Frampton and Santana. This year, the duo launched its C&K Back in the Day tour, which transports listeners to the '70s with lush vocal harmonies and a vintage Volkswagen Beetle that pulls up to each seat. Instead of carving a saxophone from a coconut, guests can enjoy mellow numbers such as "Lovin' in Your Eyes" and "I Am The Other Man" from the comfort of top-tier seats. Guitars and ukuleles will swathe the crowd in romance, prompting episodes of handholding and tandem piggyback rides. Visitors can also watch opening performances by local Hawaiian-pop band Ho’okipa Centrale and the Hiva Nui hula troupe.

What aspect of your job, or the services you offer, most often surprises people?
There is not one antivirus out there that can stop all viruses from attacking your computer, but people can't seem to understand that. They think that because they have antivirus on their computer, they should not get viruses, and some even get angry. So just because you have software on your computer to protect it, doesn't mean you cant get a virus.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

Casual visitors to Harmony Wynelands Winery might be forgiven for thinking the vineyard’s name derives from its perfectly balanced wine selection, but a surprise waits in the blue and white barn amid the rows of grape vines. There presides owner Bob Hartzell’s prize possession: the 2/11 Robert Morton organ that was originally installed in the Castro Theatre in San Francisco. The winery satisfies music lovers with regularly scheduled concerts, enophiles with on-demand tasting experiences, and both at the same time with finger-licking wineglass players. The musical theme is also reflected in the vineyard’s Orchestra wine club, which fans can join at a Soloist or Maestro level to receive wine shipments and special offers.
