    Default Another Beginning

    somewhere, sorry, i don't have a book, i happened to come across the very interesting story of a woman by the name of Iva Toguri d' Aquino.

    You may know her by another name, which i think is much too sad.


    I thought i knew the whole story but i was wrong, and i won't forget it. Especially if i start getting discouraged again.


    i'm not sure if this connects to treasure Hunting but it might.




    It looks like it stopped raining
    Maybe we can go out in the yard

    Thank you very much docsmile for posting the wikipedia.org link.

    This is wikipedia's article about Iva Toguri D'Aquino who, as the article states Never used the name "Tokyo Rose" .

    I invite All readers of any age to read this article to Find out a lot of other information about Iva Toguri D'Aquino that even I was not aware of until a couple of days ago.

    So what does this have to do with treasures and Especially treasure hunting? Read the article. Read a hundred books and articles about common persons fighting and/or working against Uncommon odds and how they managed to survive and in many cases accomplish great things.Often, as in this case, their real names and their real accomplishments have been forgotten or covered with lies and half truths.

    Don't listen to me

    Love ya

    THIS article contains some of this woman's quotes from the radio broadcasts that she did.

    I was a little girl when that war ended. I remember discussions in the family about many things including the above. I remember food rationing. I remember my mother couldn't buy a pair of nylon (silk) stockings. I remember the ladies who MENDED nylon stockings at Woolworths on a hoop over a lightbulb while the ladies waited.

    It would not be responsible of me to editorialize in this forum about such things. Let the facts speak for themselves. And I remember what we did to end the war. And this subject should be closed. It has nothing to do with the hunt before us.
