Replace the Banjos with Ukaleles.
Also finding that the Kilauea long eruption is beginning to slow and the feeder dike to Puu Oo is beginning to crystallise. Result is a raising of lava lake levels in halemaumau lava pond.
Now is probably a very good time to run a long term levelling survey of Mauna Loa following its current long interval between eruptions. Result may be mauna Loa finally going up in the world in nexr few years.
Galapagos hotspot appears more likely to show a similar effect as it is rather wider. Iceland already shows the same effect but is moderated by rifting, which gets in the way of decent results (most recent being Eyjafjallajokull, Hekla, and Katla).
