NEW LINKS

Have added a couple of new links to my BLOG, both of which are works in progress, so bear with me. The club website link lists only those clubs with active websites, and if I have not included your club please let me know so that I can add it.  The other link, articles and tips, includes older articles I’ve written over the years for  Western & Eastern Treasures magazine. Many thanks to Steve and Rosemary Anderson for allowing me this privilege.

THE SEARCH FOR AMELIA EARHART

EarhartFor any of my long time subscribers you know of my interest in this topic. I guess it has a lot to do with my love of research. The effort to find the remains of this  famous American flyer is fascinating, and I have followed the TIGHAR group’s effort for quite some time. I mention this again because  of this recent news item from yesterday. Finding her plane will surely answer a lot of questions.

I suspect that many of you may not even know of Amelia Earhart or care about this, but if you do, I highly recommend “Finding Amelia: The True Story of the  Earhart Disappearance” by Ric Gillespie and “Amelia Earhart’s Shoes” by King, Jacobson, Burns & Spalding. Good reads…

While it hasn’t garnered as much interest I also read all I can about the disappearance of Glenn Miller over the English channel during WWII. Having played in the only authorized Glenn Miller  band in the early sixties makes it even more interesting.

Okay, now that I bored the hell out of you…go dig something!
