Hence, Whoorl was born! Because I really DO enjoy your blog! I found your blog because of SAJ! I like the sort of whooshing sound it makes as you say it. My favorite W word has been Watson for my last name, but that will soon be gone, thanks to my current favorite word…wedding! My son loves whales, so this might have something to do with my fondness for the word.

Her performing career enabled her to travel around Europe without attracting suspicion, and she attended numerous parties at embassies, gleaning whatever military and political information she could that might aid the Resistance, often smuggling intelligence secrets on invisible ink on her sheet music.

Following the war, Baker, who received multiple awards from the French for her contributions to the war effort, became active in the American civil rights movement but continued to make her home in France, where she resided with 12 children she adopted from around the globe and whom she referred to as her Rainbow Tribe.
