New York is wonderful; there’s still a city girl alive inside my suburban lifestyle.
I’ve posted some pictures on Facebook.
See ya on the Net,

Amelia Mary Earhart, the first women to fly solo across the Atlantic, was born July 24, 1897 at her grandparents’ home in Atchison, Kansas. Despite her many pioneering achievements, she is best known for her tragic disappearance over the Pacific on July 2, 1937, halfway to her goal of circling the globe. Like many today, Earhart believed that technology would open new worlds for women.
Amelia Earhart Birthplace Museum
Thousands of visitors a year tour the museum at Earhart’s birthplace in Atchison, KS. Best clicks for virtual visitors can be found under the Amelia Earhart subhead (in the left-hand menu) where you’ll find a biography, fun facts, and news clips. “During her childhood, Amelia invented a tribe of imaginary small black creatures she called Dee-Jays. Described as a cross between a Krazy Kat cartoon and a jabberwocky, the creatures were often blamed for Amelia’s own irresponsible behavior, such as: talking out of turn, eating the last piece of candy, or when something turned up lost.”

“In 1923, Earhart, fondly known as ‘Lady Lindy,’ became the 16th woman to be issued a pilot’s license.

Ellen's Place: Amelia Earhart Biography
In 1920, Earhart flew in an open cockpit biplane at an aerial meet in Long Beach, California. “As soon as we had left the ground I knew I myself had to fly.” She soon began lessons with another woman pilot, Anita “Neta” Snook, in a restored Canadian training plane. “On April 27, 1926, her life was to change forever . . . a phone call from Captain H.H. Railey asked, ‘How would you like to be the first woman to fly across the Atlantic?'” This detailed biography, neatly organized into Early Years, Celebrity and Last Flight, is a terrific resource for school reports.
