DJT created the topic: Vietnamese, Coconut, Gilligan and Duesenberg?
An odd assortment, but all connected thru Google...

Just strange sometimes how one thing leads to another then to another and so on.......

Was reading a Google+ status made by my wife's cousin in Vietnam:

Translated: When have we been to the island coconut =))

Was curious " Island Coconut" -

Googled it and found several but was interested in one that Nana probably never heard of: Coconut Island the name of the Island that is pictured at the beginning of Gilligan's Island show. Then saw a link to the history of the Island and read:

Charles Christian, Jr. Santa Rosa, CA wrote: My father for many years was Chief Steward of the SS. Matsonia that sailed between the mainland and Honolulu. He met many important and wealthy people and some of them became social contacts during the two years we lived in Honolulu. One was Fred? Dusenberg of the automobile family that built that car. He lived at the foot of Diamond Head on a lovely estate with a private beach and I would go with his house boy to the beach while my folks would visit with the Dusenbergs.
