Hi all,

This is my first ever post to any of the Fool boards, so Hi. :-)

I read the review of RDPD mentioned in a post of a couple of weeks ago ( and found it quite thought provoking. My in-laws (who were born and raised in Hawaii and still live there, where Kiyosaki is supposed to have grown up) recommended the book, so I bought it and read it about two years ago.

Instead of talking about the book, though, I'd like to share something my father-in-law wrote about growing up in Honolulu, something he calls "Hanabata Days". It's on my website at (it is long on text and short on graphics). I hope you enjoy it.
