Rosalia Lombardo: The True Sleeping Beauty

Rosalia Lombardo died at aged 2 and her distraught parents had her embalmed. She was the last so-called “mummy” to be preserved in the very creepy Capuchin Catacombs and her remarkable preservation has led people to name her the SleepRosalia Lombardoing Beauty.

Rosalia Lombardo was an Italian child born in 1918 in Palermo, Sicily. She died on December 6th 1920 of pneumonia. Rosalia’s father was so sorely grieved upon her death that he approached Dr. Alfredo Salafia, a noted embalmer and taxidermist, to preserve her. She was one of the last corpses to be admitted to the Capuchin catacombs of Palermo, Sicily and one of the most well-known.
Her preservation is such that it appears as if she were only sleeping, hence receiving the nickname “Sleeping Beauty”. She is considered one of the world’s best-preserved bodies and it is hard to believe she died nearly 90 years ago. For many years, the formula that preserved her so magnificently was a mystery, but it has recently been discovered that she was injected with a mixture of formalin, zinc salts, alcohol, salicylic acid, and glycerin.
Formalin, now widely used by embalmers, is a mixture of formaldehyde and water that kills bacteria. Dr. Salafia was one of the first to use this for embalming bodies. Alcohol, along with the arid conditions in the catacombs, would have dried Rosalia’s body and allowed it to mummify. Glycerin would have kept her body from drying out too much, and salicylic acid would have prevented the growth of fungi.
According to Melissa Williams, executive director of the American Society of Embalmers, it was the zinc salts that were most responsible for Rosalia’s amazing state of preservation. Zinc, which is no longer used by embalmers in the United States, petrified Rosalia’s body. “[Zinc] gave her rigidity. You could take her out of the casket, prop her up, and she would stand by herself.”

Smudging

Smudging

Smudging is an ancient and sacred ceremony. Perform it with full awareness and in a slow, mindful manner.

The herbs most commonly used in a smudge stick are sage, cedar, sweet grass and lavender. You can make your own little bundles with sage and lavender if you like. You might choose to use a colorful string to hold the herbs together.

Over time, even the happiest homes accumulate negative vibrations, so it is good to smudge your home thoroughly at least several times a year. You can also smudge your office space and use smudging to clear personal energy.

HOW TO SMUDGE YOUR HOME

You will need:

Smudge stick
Candle and matches
A fireproof container with sand in the bottom

Instructions:

1. Place the candle, the fireproof container and the smudge stick on a table, desk or any other appropriate surface. It is best if you create a sense of ceremony when you smudge your home, as well as find time when you will not be disturbed; about 15 minutes should be enough.

2. Light the candle and say a prayer or just focus your energy. Light the tip of your smudge stick with a candle light, and then gently wave the stick in the air till the tip begins to smolder.

3. Hold the smudge stick over the fireproof container at all times in order to keep any lit herbs from falling on your clothes, draperies, bedding, furniture or the floor. Many people use a feather and others simply wave their hands to disperse the smoke. In theory, wafting the smoke of the smudge stick with a feather keeps the negative energy from attaching to your hand. Stay connected to your breathing throughout your smudging session.

4. Go clockwise (counterclockwise in the southern hemisphere) around your home (usually starting at the front door), and gently wave the smoke into the air. Spend a bit more time smudging the room corners, as they tend to accumulate stagnant energy. Be sure to also open the closet doors and carefully smudge inside. Do not forget about spaces such as the halls, the laundry room, the garage or the basement.

5. When you have smudged all areas of your house, return to where you started and gently extinguish your smudge stick (dipping it into sand while applying a bit of pressure usually works well). Wait a bit, and then pack away your smudge stick, as well as the container, until your next smudging session. You can leave the candle, if you so desire, to continue to purify the energy.

HOW TO SMUDGE YOURSELF OR ANOTHER PERSON

You will need:

Smudge stick
Candle and matches
A fireproof container with sand in the bottom

Instructions:

1. Place the candle, the fireproof container and the smudge stick on a table, desk or any other appropriate surface. It is best if you create a sense of ceremony when you smudge your home, as well as find time when you will not be disturbed; about 15 minutes should be enough.

2. Light the candle and say a prayer or just focus your energy. Light the tip of your smudge stick with a candle light, and then gently wave the stick in the air till the tip begins to smolders.

3. Once your smudge stick is lit and smoldering, direct the smoke waves to the overall energy field around your body, starting with the area above your head and continuing down to your feet. Breathe deeply while you do that.

4. Some people prefer to begin with the soles of the feet, going up both sides of the legs, torso and arms, and then finishing by smudging the space above the head. See what works best for you.

5. The same steps apply when you are asked to smudge somebody else, be it a friend or a child. It is usually a good idea to smudge yourself before, as well as after you smudge the house.

COINS LEFT ON MILITARY GRAVESTONES

Image

While visiting some cemeteries you may notice that headstones marking certain graves have coins on them, left by previous visitors to the grave. These coins have distinct meanings when left on the headstones of those who gave their life while serving in America’s military, & these meanings vary depending on the denomination of coin.

A coin left on a headstone or at the grave site is meant as a message to the deceased soldier’s family that someone else has visited the grave to pay respect. Leaving a penny at the grave means simply that you visited.

A nickel indicates that you & the deceased trained at boot camp together,while a dime means you served with him in some capacity. By leaving a quarter at the grave, you are telling the family that you were with the solider when he was killed. According to tradition, the money left at graves in national cemeteries & state veterans cemeteries is
eventually collected, & the funds are put toward maintaining the cemetery or paying burial costs for indigent veterans.

In the U.S., this practice became common during the Vietnam war, due to the political divide in the country over the war; leaving a coin was seen as a more practical way to communicate that you had visited the grave than contacting the soldier’s family, which could devolve into an uncomfortable argument over politics relating to the war. Some Vietnam veterans would leave coins as a “down payment” to buy their fallen comrades a beer or play a hand of cards when they would finally be reunited.

The tradition of leaving coins on the headstones of military men & women can be traced to as far back as the Roman Empire.

Haunted Bahama

Bahama’s…fact or fiction

 

                             Image

 

On July 10th, the Bahama’s  gained their independence after 250 years as a British Crown Colony.

Image

 

                                                               

The Bahama’s is a favorite location for vacationing for those who love the clear, aqua, beautiful water and the white sand beaches. Snorkeling, Scuba Diving, Deep Sea fishing and many other water sports are very popular in the Bahama’s. There is also a mysterious side to the islands as there is everywhere you go. Let’s explore the Bahama’s and find out more.

Image

 

Long before the island’s of the Bahama’s became a popular tourist resort town, there was a history of great magnitude involving piracy, and slavery. The Lucayan people were shipped to slavery in Hispaniola. In 1718 The Bahama’s became a British Crown Colony where American Loyalists took their enslaved Africans setting up a plantation economy. In 1834 slavery was abolished in the Bahama’s and the majority of the population today are the descendants of the slaves and the free Africans. The Bahama’s have become one of the richest countries next to the United States and Canada.

                                                                                                           

With every historic location there are also great ghost stories and mysterious happenings attached to the area. The same is for the “Bahama’s”. Let’s explore. We will start with the famous “Great Isaac Lighthouse

Image

 

The “Great Isaac Lighthouse” is named after Great Isaac Cay which is located on the north end of the Bihimi Pennisula. The lighthouse was built for an exhibition in 1852 in London. It is 152 feet high and the tower is made of white cast iron. It’s light can be seen up to 23 miles away. One young boy died during a ship wreck on a British supply liner. He was consumed by sharks when the wreck took place. The boy has been seen wandering around the premises. Another shipwreck in the late 19th century killed everyone except a one small infant, the mother of the infant is said to be seen searching for her baby. She is known as the “The Gray Lady” and is known to wail at full moons. In 1969 two lightkeepers disappeared and was never located , the lighthouse, keepers quarters and all else came into disrepair after that. The lighthouse was finally automated in the mid 1970’s and has remained unmanned ever since.

ImageImageImage

 

 There are three other lighthouses in the “Bahama’s“ which have reputedly haunted activity. They are “The Eleuthera Point Lighthouse” on the northeastern portion of the “Grand Bahama Bank”, “Dixon Hill Lighthouse”, on the highest point at San Salvador Island or also known as Watling Island, and “The Stirrup Cay”, at the northern end of the Berry Islands. At “The Eleuthera Point Lighthouse” an innkeeper who was also a sorcerer would see a woman that he called “The White Lady” whom he fell in love with and is said to have had conjugal relations with. At “The Dixon Lighthouse”, Thomas, an individual who owned the lighthouse at one time lost his foot in a boating accident, he died in the 1950’s and there is said to be a one-footed ghost wandering around the lighthouse, this has been reported by both servicemen and local college students. Finally, at the “Great Isaac Lighthouse”, there have been reports of a resident ghost making strange noises. The identity of this spirit remains a mystery

 

With all of the folklore of Pirates, shipwrecks, slavery and even sacrifices, there are many tales of paranormal activity in all of the Caribbean. The above you find just a taste of stories .Image

Common Configuration Patterns for Ghosts

HOLLYWOOD VERSION OF A GHOST

Image

Many visitors to our website often associate a ghost with the Hollywood’s version of a ghost which is represented by the drawing on the right done by Andrea at amoseart@limestone.kosone.com. Hollywood traditionally believe that the entity appears as a transparent humanoid shaped apparition, dressed in their common clothes for the period. Unfortunately, this view is not accurate and can mislead people into developing misconceptions about the physical shape of a ghost. I would like to address this issue by discussing the common shapes or configurations of the real world of ghosts.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

VORTEX

Image

This is a swirling column of white ectoplasm that is often mistaken for a camera strap because it usually is found on the right side of the photograph in a vertical position. This column may cast a shadow and may lie in a horizontal or vertical position on the photo. One or more vortex columns may be present. The vortex may loop or may appear to disappear completely from the photo. The column may be of any color, but the most common is white. Often a blue-white color may be visible associated with portions of the column being transparent. In those photographs taken at funerals, the vortex captured on film are often more blue than white with individual sections of the column as a dense white almost like blobs within the column. The older the spirit, the more solid the vortex appears. This may be a basic configuration for the ghost entity. From this configuration the vortex transforms into a globular shaped ectoplasm.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

ORBS OR BALLS OF LIGHTImage

Orbs are the most common configuration pattern for the spirits of the dead. The sphere is considered the ideal vehicle for moving about. The spirit orb may represent one or more spirits or souls. Documented evidence suggest that these Orbs may allow multiple spirits to travel together. Most often an Orb in motion will leave a contrail since it is moving faster than the shutter speed of the camera. Orbs are the essence of who we were in life, our intelligence, our emotions, our personalities and our attitudes are all retained within this essence or soul. Often these orbs can be observed with the human eye as they past through the wall or zip across the room.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

ECTOPLASM OR ECTO VAPOR

Image

This is a form of spirit energy that appears either as long white swirls or as a vapor or cloud like spirit energy. This configuration appears to be unorganized and resembles swirls of smoke. When an Orb comes to rest, it can dissolve into an ectoplasmic mist. In some ectoplasmic mist, swirls caused by orbs in motion can be observed.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

ECTO SWIRLS

Image

This form of ectoplasm resembles swirls of smoke or vapor and is caused by orbs in motion that are leaving a contrail behind it. The vapor trails are generally white.

————————————————————————————————————-———————————————————

BUST PARTICLES

Image

Dust particles suspended in the air are often thought to be spirit orbs simply because they are also orb shaped. If the IGHS Standards & Protocols are not followed, the chances of photographing dust particles instead of spirit orbs are very high. Most digital cameras will capture suspended dust particles, both indoors and outdoors. Most people are amazed that their homes contain suspended dust particles, but they do. Heaters, vents, fans and other devices move the tiny dust particles on currents of air not seen by our eyes. The orb shaped anomalies maybe out-of-round, broken or chucked, may appear as shield shape, diamond shape or octogonal depending on which camera is used. Any straight line found on an anomaly means it is produced by light being reflected back into the camera causing the anomaly. Spirit orbs never have straight lines of any kind. Most dust particles appear in clusters and resemble bubbles.

Mindy’s history of paranormal happenings

Where the animals are…               by: Mindy Hardy

                                      

Sounds of crying animals, human screams and the smell of smoke permeates the air on the railroad tracks near Hammond Indiana. The strange thing is there is nothing there that is visible that should be making these noises, nothing but an area of railroad track cutting through Indiana. What could have happened here to cause this phenomena.

                                                                       

June 22, 1918, “Haganbeck-Wallace” circus employees, boarded a train headed to their next stop of Hammond, Indiana where they were to put on their show, one of the most popular circus’ in America, second only to “Ringling Brothers”. There were approximately 400 employees on board the train as well as many animals. The train included fourteen flatcars, seven stock cars for the animals and four sleeper cars for the employees, all cars made out of wood.

Along that same railroad track, heading the same direction as the “Haganbeck-Wallace” circus train Alonzo Sargent was operating a troop train from “Michigan Central Railroad”. The train was pulling 20 empty cars. Alonzo, having had very little sleep over the preceding 24 hours was falling asleep at the

controls. He had a kidney disorder and had take his medicine for this condition which could have contributed to his fatigue.

                                                               

At 4:00 am, two automatic signals and warnings which were posted by a brakeman went unnoticed by Alonzo that the circus train had made a stop at a crossing known as “Ivanhoe Interlocking”, due to the smell of smoke coming from a hot box on one of the flat cars. Conducter R.W.Johnson, sent a flagman to the back of the train to watch for any problems during the emergency stop, as was standard operating procedure at the time. The flagman, seeing the impending crash tried frantically to get the attention of Alonzo to no avail. He watched as the train that Alonzo Sargent was operating slammed into the back of the circus train at speeds of about 35 miles per hour. 

             

 

Minutes later, after the first cars hit burst into flame, the entire train became engulfed with both the employees and the animals still on board. Those who were able to escape tried to save the people that were still on the burning train but the fire burned but still being miles up the track from Hammond there was not much they could do but to watch the train burn and try to not think about the cries and screams they heard of humans and animals being burned alive.

The fire subsided at about 8 am. Identifying the victims was a daunting task as many were burned beyond recognition and some burned completely away with no evidence of their existence. There were single limbs found from some of the victims. All in all there were 86 killed and another 120 injured. Not only the humans suffered but the animals that perished. Most of the animals that did survive had to be destroyed because of their injuries and trauma.

“Showman’s Rest” is where between 56 and 61 victims were laid to rest, it is a section of the Woodlawn Cemetery that is 750 acres.  Many of the stones that mark these grave say “unknown male” or “unknown female”. 5 elephant statues guard the graves bringing honor os well as human to the memorial that is placed there.

Is it any wonder that the tragic events of June 22, 1918 continue to replay itself in the area of “Ivanhoe Interlocking” near Hammond Indiana. Individuals who happen upon the site feel an intense sadness overcome them. Could this be the spirits of the employees wondering when their train will pull into Hammond for their next show? Do they feel the anxiety of the animals as they are unable to free themselves from this life of uncertainty. Are the screams that people hear at the site from the people who are in pain and torment, losing their lives to something so unbelievable or the ones who escaped and watched their friends, family and coworkers died in front of their eyes? Is the smell of smoke the way for the deceased to let the living know what happened in that spot many years ago. Why we may never know but does it happen? According to claims, it is a common occurrence.

America’s Most Haunted Town, Savannah Georgia

Savannah, Georgia is considered “America’s Most Haunted City” according to the American Institute of Parapsychology. To believers, it is no surprise that Savannah is the most haunted city. Homes, businesses, and roads sit on top of burial grounds of slaves, Native Americans, and colonists. Savannah has seen hurricanes, fires, battles, and yellow fever. Souls that were lost to these tragic events wander the city.

The Pirates House Restaurant is home to the souls of sailors that were sold into slavery on pirates ships. Sailors were smuggled out of the building by underground tunnels.

pirates house

A bar known as the Moon River Brewing Company is housed in a 187 year old structure. A variety of spirits are here but no one can pinpoint just why the spirits chose this building.

The Legacy of Anne Frank…..in life….in death!

The Legacy of Anne Frank….in life….in death!

          

June 12, 1929, this week eighty five years ago, Anne Frank was born in Frankfurt Germany to Otto and Edith Frank. Anne’s older sister Margot and Anne had a happy life in Frankfurt to begin with, playing with other children, school and family outings, life was good. In 1933 Hitler took over Germany and being Jewish, the Frank’s were concerned. Another concern was the economic crisis that they were experiencing.

Anne, 3rd from left, Margot 4th from right

Margot and Anne Frank

Looking for an escape, Edith and the children followed Otto to Amsterdam where Otto sets up a business. Life is again good, the children attend school and all seems to be going well until on September 1st of 1939 Germany attacks Poland. Shortly after the Netherlands were also invaded and they were forced to surrender to the Germans. The Franks are amongst the many Jews who were restricted with their business and as individuals. Mr. Frank makes the decision to take his family into hiding thinking that this is the only way that they will stay together and survive. He tried to emigrate to America but this failed and so an annex inside of his business is prepared to keep the Franks in hiding until they are safe.

Eight people including the Frank’s and four other Jews go into hiding. Four of Otto’s employees helps them so that they will not be discovered. Living in conditions such as they were, they were in constant fear of being discovered.

“Not being able to go outside upsets me more than I can say, and I’m terrified our hiding place will be discovered and that we’ll be shot.”

Anne Frank

In the annex, it was dark and damp as they had to keep their hiding place shut up so that they would not be discovered and arrested. The only place that they can get a little bit of fresh air is from a small window in the attic. They cannot let nearby neighbors see that they are living there as they would for sure be doomed. The Franks, as well as the Van Pels and later a man by the name of Fritz Pfeffer took refuge in the shelter from 1942-1944.

It was during their time of hiding that Anne began to write in a journal. As well as writing her feelings and the happenings in their small hide out, she also wrote short stories and quotes from other writers. On July 23rd, 1943 Anne wrote:

“”Margot and Mr. Van Pels wish, above all else, to have a hot bath filled to the brim, which they can lie in for more than half an hour. Mrs. Van Pels would like a cake, Pfeffer can think of nothing but seeing his Charlotte and Mother is dying for a cup of real coffee. Father would like to visit Mr. Voskuijl, Peter would go downtown, and as for me, I’d be so overjoyed I wouldn’t know where to begin. Most of all I long to have a home of our own, to be able to move around freely and have someone help me with my homework again, at last. In other words, to go back to school!”

They would never have their wishes realized however as on August 4th 1944, everyone in the secret annex was found and arrested. Mr. Frank is the only one to survive the fateful camps that they were all taken to such as the infamous Auschwitz. Anne ends up in the same barracks as her mother and sister but then they are seperated when Anne and her sister are taken to Bergen-Belsen.

Vrouwenbarak Auschwitz

At the young age of 15, in March 1945, Anne Frank dies.

 

The story does not end there. Anne Frank and her family, being in such a tumultuous situation and hiding for two years in the small annex with five other prisoners, there was fear, sadness, loneliness and many other emotions that were bestowed upon the hideout. The Anne Frank House still stands and is a museum where they have exhibits and give daily tours. It has been reported by numerous people that cold spots are constantly felt, and the apparition of a young girl is often seen looking outside one of the windows with a blank stare on her face. Some have reported a loud rumbling down the stairs leading to the basement which could be linked to an event that ocurred while Anne was still living in which a sack of uncooked beans was spilled down the stairs accidentally. This could be possibly what we call a residual haunting where events are recorded in time to replay over and over again.

I’m convinced that in some of the concentration camps such as “Bergen Belsen” that there is paranormal activity with the history as the picture below depicts looming in our minds. There are accounts of an unamed barrack in Germany, that was boarded up due to all of the paranormal activity that was encountered there. Stories of furniture being moved although the room was boarded up, when they did open the room, it was icy cold although the radiators were hot to the touch, and the chairs were stacked from floor to ceiling. Perhaps, this was one of the prisoners that experienced the horrors that Anne Frank experienced in the concentration camps. I’m sure that there are many holocaust victims that wander the realms around Germany and Amsterdam, searching for an answer to the unsettling lives that they lived. Perhaps one of the many spirits that lived the terror is Anne herself, searching for her family and what became of them.

Golden Gate Bridge……or suicide bridge?

Golden Gate Bridge……or suicide bridge? By: Mindy Hardy

 

May 27th 1937, an orange vermillion structure or to others called “International Orange”,looms 222 feet or the equivalent of 19 stories over the Pacific Ocean. On the east side of the bridge is the beautiful, romantic, ambiance of the San Francisco skyline. Thousands of residents and tourists flock to San Francisco to see the Golden Gate Bridge and better yet to drive across it. The more athletic would prefer to walk or even compete in marathons which utilizes the Golden Gate Bridge as part of the route in the marathons.There is also a darker side to the bridge, the side that has brought over 1000 people to the top of the bridge, who have jumped or fallen into the unforgiving and restless waters below, ending their precious lives overlooking the skyline which they once loved.

The Golden Gate Bridge is the number one location where depressed and anxiety ridden people have committed suicide. The first suicide occurred only 10 weeks after the structure opened on May 27th 1937. It is reported that he left his job on a barge, strolled across the bridge, talked with a tourist, and then jumped over the side. The death toll was kept track of by the newspapers until the number drew close to 1000 to avoid fame seekers trying to be the 1000th person. At this point there is over 1300 victims of the Golden Gate. About every two weeks, one person jumps off of the bridge, usually from the east side overlooking the city. Cornelia Van Ireland who was 22 at the time became the first survivor and as of 2006 only 26 people have survived the jump and the the frigid waters below. Sarah Rutledge Birnbaum is likely the only person to have survived the first jump, and made a second jump from the bridge which she did not survive. The former owner of Victoria Secret sold his company and then eleven years later committed suicide by jumping off of the infamous bridge. There is even a report of a dog running up onto the bridge and jumping over the side. Why the people who have committed suicide from the Golden Gate Bridge did not jump from the much taller Oakland Bay Bridge can only be for the infamy of being one of the thousands of people to commit suicide from the Golden Gate Bridge. In the seventies there was a group called the “Suicide Club” who would hold lavish parties every time a suicide occurred as morbid as that is.

Although suicide is the main cause of death from the bridge there are also a handful of people who have fallen from the bridge by accident, mainly during the construction of the bridge where a piece of scaffolding fell through the safety net killing 10 workers. The safety net saved nineteen other people in the accident. The men that it saved are known as the “Halfway to Hell Club”.

As you can guess there are many paranormal events that happen on and around the Golden Gate Bridge today. Some of the reports of activity centers on the bridge and some underneath the bridge. One of the most famous accounts is of the the ship steamer the “SS Tennessee” who disappeared in 1853 into the dense fog of the Golden Gate Strait and being tossed against the rocks she quickly sank. “Tennessee Cove” is named in her honor. Credible witnesses have seen the phantom ship passing below the bridge, it’s deck unmanned, and then it fades into the fog minutes later. On one occasion the crew members on USS Kennison passed by what they saw as the “SS Tennessee”, they became amazed and then baffled when nothing registered on the destroyer’s radar although the phantom ship had left a wake.There have been other mishaps with ships. In 1901 the “SS City of Rio De Janiero” slammed into the rocks off Fort Point. 200 passengers rushed to the deck and fought to get one of the seats in the lifeboats. It became a riot and the lifeboats became overcrowded and sunk. There were not enough life jackets and fist fights ensued about who would get a life jacket. There were 129 souls taken that day within 18 minutes of being thrust into the frigid water. Screams could be heard and the sounds of dying which faded away into the silence of the coastal fog. There have been accounts from witnesses of screams trailing off into the fog. On foggy nights, with the wind howling through the cables of the bridge, some can hear the the ghastly cries of the men as they plummet to their death.

Another report that I have heard of is that pedestrians who was joggingacross the bridge started thinking evil thoughts which was very unusual for him not being depressed or stressed out. In his words:

I kept feeling these evil feelings, with visions of me jumping, and how easy it would be to just jump. It was very bizarre, so bizarre, that I did not even want to run back over the bridge. I can’t explain those feelings. It was almost like there were evil spirits or something that were attacking me as I ran over the bridge, putting these thoughts in my mind”.

He then says,

“All I can say, I will never jog or walk over that bridge ever again. There is something not right about that bridge and the visions and feelings I got were terrifying”.

Is this what happened with all of the people who have made the final plunge into the great Pacific Ocean from the top of the Golden Gate Bridge? Did they walk across just with the intent of looking at the SFO skyline when an angry spirit or feeling attacked and overcame them and coerced them to plunge into the waters or were the 1300 plus victims troubled in their lives and felt like there was no other choice but to jump from the Golden Gate Bridge and if so why did they choose they Golden Gate Bridge, was it notoriety, was it adrenalin, drugs? Who knows. Do you dare to walk or jog the 1.7 miles across the bridge now knowing the history and it’s skeletons? Those of us who love the history, the mystery, and the beauty of San Francisco and it’s bridge will not let stories deter us from enjoying it, right? I know I won’t.
