One of Sam's Club's great Black Friday deals is Roomba’s E5 model for $250, a $100 savings.

Best Buy will open at 5pm on Thanksgiving this year. Unlike some other retailers, the Black Friday sale prices are only valid Thursday (11/22) through Saturday.

I like the friendly staff and the online check-in. If we plan it right, there is little or no wait. Here's the price list for the Palo Alto Great Clips. I noticed that the prices can vary quite a bit more…by location.

    About Us

    Bishop Museum was founded in 1889 by Charles Reed Bishop in honor of his late wife, Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop, the last descendant of the royal Kamehameha family. The Museum was established to house the extensive collection of Hawaiian objects and royal family heirlooms of the Princess, and has expanded to include millions of objects, documents and photographs about Hawai‘i and other Pacific island cultures.

    Mr. Bishop built the magnificent Polynesian and Hawaiian Halls on the grounds of the original Kamehameha Schools for Boys. The Museum and School shared the Kapālama campus until 1940 when a new larger school complex was opened nearby on Kapālama Heights.

    Today, Bishop Museum is the largest museum in the state and the premier natural and cultural history institution in the Pacific, recognized throughout the world for its cultural collections, research projects, consulting services and public educational programs. It also has one of the largest natural history specimen collections in the world. Serving and representing the interests of Native Hawaiians is a primary purpose of the Museum.
