Charles Lindbergh was so popular in the 1920s that the Orleans Parish made a Perfect Attendance Award in his name (guess it would be the equivalent of the Kim Kardashian Not So Perfect Attendance Award now). This is my father's award. Ironically, his father was a Circus Flyer- doing acrobatics in planes and walking on wings in the New Orleans area- and also flew mail to places like Pointe de la Hache. He knew a lot of famous pilots of the day, but not Lindbergh.

HUGE ANCIENT INDIAN DRAWINGS ON DESERT FLOOR, NEAR BLYTH CALIFORNIA Geoglyphs of the SW Desert Reprinted from the Mar-Aprl 2003 issue of Southwest Aviator Magazine (page 62). Southwest Aviator Story and Photos By Ron Kilber Wednesday, January 22, 2003 A few years after Charles Lindbergh flew his Spirit of St. Louis from New York to France, another pilot flying along the Colorado River first noticed giant drawings on the desert floor north of Blythe, California. One of the earth figures measured 176 feet in length. Since then, more than two-hundred images have been discovered along the river from Nevada to the Gulf of California. All told, six-hundred-plus geoglyphs have been recorded in the Southwest and nearby areas of Mexico. Known also as intaglio, it's not known if geoglyphs are two-hundred years old or ten thousand. These giant ground paintings depict geometric designs, human form and animal figures. Many have withstood the test of wind, rain and time, others having fallen recent victim to motorcycle ...

Who remembers the Yakovlev Yak 2 ? A plane from history that stands iconically for warmongering production. We should think about how two planes from the same airline lose all souls with a history highlighted by events like the Titanic, the Hindenburg and figures like the red baron and charles lindbergh, amelia earheart. There is a dark trend in aviation easy to see for the same reason as the proverb 'as the crow flies'. In wartime and unrest the quickest path is generally chosen for pragmatism. The likening of distance to bird flight shortens the explanation of the actual travelling by land, which undulates. We cut corners too often when there is unrest, but who cannot see how transportation has a veneer to hide the psychopathy in the militarisation? We have now 2 commercial planes all souls down after militarisation production peaked. Why do psychopaths have better equipment to drop bombs? Shoddy production from start to finish is an effective weapon against the passive portion of humanity.

Ten days before he became so famous that crowds would form around any building that contained him and waiters would fight over a corncob left on his dinner plate, no one had heard of Charles Lindbergh. The New York Times had mentioned him once, in the context of the corning Atlantic flights. It had misspelled his name, The news that transfixed the nation as spring gave way to summer in 1927 was a gruesome murder in a modest family home on Long Island, coincidentally quite close to Roosevelt Field, where the Atlantic fliers were now gathering. The newspapers, much excited, called it the Sash Weight Murder Case. The story was this: Late on the night of March 20, 1927, as Mr. and Mrs. Albert Snyder slept side by side in twin beds in their house on 222nd Street in a quiet, middle-class neighborhood of Queens Village, Mrs. Snyder heard noises in the upstairs hallway. Going to investigate, she found a large man - a "giant," she told police - just outside her bedroom door. He was speaking in a foreign accent to ...

Another GREAT Paris day. Three of us went to the Museum of Air and Space at Le Bourget field. Le Bourget is important because it is where Charles Lindbergh landed after his nonstop flight from NY and the location of the Paris Airshow. While it is not the Smithsonian, it was very enjoyable. With a concentration of French aircraft starting in 1912, it was very informative. Got in the Concorde prototype as well as an Air France Concorde and 747. From there we went to the Paris Opera House of Phantom of the Opera fame where Sherrie met us after heading to the Louvre and Notre Dame. I'll repost Sherries pics as her fone takes much better pics. Still working on tomorrow's plans but I see a River Seine cruise and a tram ride. Still recovering from the 4,674 steps at the Arch de Triumphe and walking 7 miles yesterday and 6 miles today.
Before he became a world-famous aviator, Charles Lindbergh spent boyhood years in Little Falls.

Itasca State Park and the Mississippi River headwaters! Took a stroll across the rocks and a split log walkway to check off the bucket list. The water was "refreshing". Finished off the day in Bemidji by visiting with Paul Bunyan and Babe the blue ox. Heading south tomorrow (I think).

Lindbergh's grandfather was named Manson. He ran away from Lund, his home city due to some political, moral and possibly criminal issues, taking a pregnant waittress with him. From Canada he crossed into Michigan and adopted the name "Lundbergh", which was written down as Lindbergh. Ergo, if that name change hadn't occurred at the border, Charles Lindbergh would have been the first "Charles Manson". (ref: "Lindbergh", by Scott Berg)

MONETARY HISTORY CALENDAR May 19 - 25 - MAY 20 1851- BIRTH OF CHARLES MACUNE, HEAD OF SOUTHERN FARMERS’ ALLIANCE AND ORIGINATOR OF THE POPULIST “SUB-TREASURY PLAN” The “Sub-Treasury Plan,” developed by the southern Populist Macune, was an ingenious proposal to circumvent banking corporations, merchants and landlords by farmers to avoid debt at high interest, which often resulted in the loss of their farms. The proposal called for farmers to store their harvest in federal warehouses when prices for their commodities were low. Farmers would leverage those commodities for loans (up to 80% of the market value in federal notes) to support themselves until prices rose. The proposal was especially useful to southern farmers with non-perishable crops (i.e. cotton). The farmer had one year to sell the crop and then pay back the note and 1% interest.

May 19 1918 Judge Wilson Taylor of St. Louis was in the midst of a campaign against the “flivver.” The judge said the automobile was responsible for an increase in the divorce rate. He said husbands were too busy tinkering with their cars to pay attention to their wives. Taylor’s lectures were so effective that the Auto Club of St. Louis found it necessary to launch a counter-campaign. 1923 St. Louisans gathered on the streets to witness the first skywriter ever seen here.

FIVE WAYS FOR A MOM TO GET SOME REST By Kendra Fletcher Guess what? It’s May, and for many of us that means it’s time to kick back. I also realize that quite a lot of our readers are just about to start their school years, and even more are working year-round. Guess what? It’s still time to kick back! If you are a passionate, driven, serious homeschooler, you may very well recognize your inability to take some time off and put your feet up for a day or longer. We feel so much pressure doing this job, don’t we? As a homeschooling mom who has perhaps gone before you, may I gently implore you to take some time off? It may be just a few minutes, an hour with a good book, or a weekend alone to take a breath and think, but time off from the 24/7 demands of homeschooling is essential to your physical health, the health of your marriage, and the health of your family as a whole. I am not the only one who is encouraging you to do so; God commanded a day of rest and indeed, took one himself during that matc ...
QUOTE OF THE WEEK & AVIATION HISTORY: “This is earth again, the earth where I've lived and now will live once more . . . I've been to eternity and back. I know how the dead would feel to live again.” — Charles Lindbergh, on sighting Ireland after first solo Atlantic crossing, 1927. Taking off from Roosevelt Field, Long Island, New York, on 20 May 1927, Charles Lindbergh will span the Atlantic in a 33.5 hour flight, landing in Paris the next day.

May 18, 1927 : Disgruntled Farmer Bombs Bath School Still the worst case of school violence ever recorded. We live in an age where we think that schools shootings, bombings, and the like are only a modern phenomenon. It’s not the type of thing that we would have expected to happen in the 1920s. And in Bath, Michigan. On May 18, 1927, 45 people, mostly children, were killed and 58 were injured when disgruntled and demented school board member Andrew Kehoe dynamited the new school building in Bath, Michigan out of revenge over his foreclosed farm due in part to the taxes required to pay for the new school. Across the world, newspaper headlines announced the shocking tragedy in the village with the unlikely name of Bath. The story competed for page one space with the Charles Lindbergh flight and massive floods on the Mississippi River. The New York Times story of May 19 read "MANIAC BLOWS UP SCHOOL, KILLS 42, MOSTLY CHILDREN." Bath School Disaster Sources: Tube Video of Bath Bombing Victims Bath massacre : ...

Dominion by CJ Sansom – review A gripping thriller about Britain under Nazi rule impresses Mark Lawson The second world war is such a pivotal event in human history that affected generations have inevitably speculated about what might have happened had the momentum swung slightly another way. Variations on Hitler's defeat by the allies have become a recurrent strain in the genre of counter-factual or alternative-history fiction. The premise of a German and Japanese triumph has inspired writers from Philip K *** to Robert Harris, whose Fatherland (1992) consciously offers a German-American parallel to the Nazi-invaded Britain of Len Deighton's SS-GB (1978); in Philip Roth's The Plot Against America (2004), President Roosevelt loses the 1940 US election to the isolationist, pro-fascist Charles Lindbergh. Now comes CJ Sansom's provocative thriller Dominion, depicting a Britain that surrendered to Germany on 9 May 1940 – the day before Churchill, in the real world, became PM – and now serves as a satel ...

On his historic trip across the Atlantic, Charles Lindbergh didn’t have the cargo space to pack a change of clothes. Instead, he relied on the kindness of the American ambassador to France, who, naturally, loaned him a Brooks Brothers suit upon his landing.

“To cause high prices all the Federal Reserve Board will do will be to lower the rediscount rate producing an expansion of credit and rising stock market, then when business men are adjusted to these conditions, it can check prosperity in mid career by raising the rate of interest. It can cause the pendulum of a rising and falling market to swing gently back and forth by slight changes in the discount rate, or cause violent fluctuations by greater rate variation and in either case, it will possess inside information as to financial conditions and advanced knowledge of the coming change, either up or down. This is the strangest and most dangerous advantage ever placed in the hands of a special privilege class by any government that ever existed. The system is private, conducted for the sole purpose of obtaining the greatest possible profits from the use of other peoples’ money. They know in advance when to create panics to their advantage, and they also know when to stop panic. Inflation and deflation ...
JCI: A Key Player in Encouraging Positive Change Junior Chamber International (JCI) was created in 1946 and has since become a worldwide federation of young leaders and entrepreneurs, with more than 200.000 members and one million alumni all around the world.

Remembering Father Coughlin - a man who exposed the NWO in the 1930's with a radio program that reached a third of the nation ...because of Father Coughlin, the government made it harder for people to speak freely over talk-radio and introduced strict regulations to obtain a radio 'permit'. Heroes of the Resistance: Charles Coughlin WHEN TRAITORS RULE, PATRIOTS ARE PARIAHS By Reb Culhane Reb Culhane is the pseudonym of a 21 year old college student in Denver, Colorado. Throughout the 20th century, voices that cut a little too close to the core of the New World Order, were silenced, slandered, and discredited. One such voice, was Father Charles Coughlin (1891-1979.) A Roman Catholic priest of Canadian birth, Coughlin pioneered use of the radio to reach vast numbers of people during the 1930s era of Roosevelt's New Deal. While his message was not without flaws, Father Coughlin spoke the truth in key areas which led to his consignment to the "wrong" side of history in official accounts. Originally a strong s ...
Minnesota State Park Charles Lindbergh. A beautiful hike through woods and field. The best part was visiting the museum and his boyhood home, learning so much more about this fascinating man way beyond the transatlantic flight including his politics and contributions to aviation. In reading more, surprised to learn he fathered 7 illegitimate children in Europe, confirmed by DNA after his death. I highly recommend this one...beautiful and along the Mississippi. Photos are a field where he landed a Jenny plane and the family piano which I played a few hymns with Jared and the tour guide and others sang along.

"Good communication is as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after." — Anne Morrow Lindberg: American author, aviator, and the wife of fellow aviator Charles Lindbergh
Charles Lindbergh was a hero of my father and I and still is. Nancy and I got to know the Lindbergh Family in the 1980's and even spent time with his widow, Ann Morrow Lindbergh and adult children. I also received the Charles Lindbergh Award for my work with the Navajo People with our Navajo Sheep Project. Been to the Lindbergh home in Minnesota too. My father told me he learned to "Barn Storm" with "Lucky Lindy" too. The plane in this picture is a Stearman biplane that I even learned to fly many years ago as it was a PT=Primary Trainer for beginning pilots. Being a "Tail Dragger", it made you a better pilot when taxiing before takeoff and after landing. Had a friend who owned 9 restored Stearman's and we occasionally took them out in order to drop candy on local birthday parties. Do 360's over homesite at 500 AGL (Above Ground Level; FAA rule then). Lots of fun and I've always liked flying prop jobs,; and multi-engine jets. Sorry for rambling but this image brought back many good memories.

A great read "The Aviators" by Winston Groom about three American Heros of uncommon valor.. Eddie Rickenbacker, Jimmy Doolittle and Charles Lindbergh.
On 18 February 1930, ELM FARM OLLIE became the first cow to fly in an airplane, when she was loaded into a Ford Trimotor and flown the 72 miles (116 km) from Bismarck, Missouri to St. Louis, MIssouri, as part of the 1930 International Air Exposition. During the flight, the Guernsey also became the first cow to be milked in flight. ELM FARM OLLIE was reported to be unusually productive, requiring three milkings a day, and producing 24 quarts of milk during the flight itself. Wisconsin native Elsworth W. Bunce milked her, becoming the first man to milk a cow mid-flight. ELM FARM OLLIE's milk was sealed into paper cartons which were parachuted to spectators below; dignitaries Charles Lindbergh and Jimmy Doolittle reportedly each received a glass of her milk. Today, the world-famous National Mustard Museum, located in the heart of downtown Middleton, Wisconsin, has the largest exhibit commemorating the historic flight of ELM FARM OLLIE - a bovine they describe as "a cow who cuts the mustard."

A good historical comparison for Imran Khan is probably the aviator hero, Charles Lindbergh. Both essentially famed for good looks hold similar philosophical moorings - a belief in martial race and manifest destiny of the pure (uncorrupt) to rule. They share the trait of almost arrogant and stubborn insistence on a given position even when overwhelming evidence to the contrary is clear for all to see. Lindbergh's political ambitions came to nought due to his unstinting support of Nazism. It remains to be seen if Khan's unwavering faith in the essential goodness of the Taliban will also leave him marooned. Or could it be the American public in the 1940s had a greater capacity than Pakistanis today to discern the difference between a fanciful hero and that that makes a great national statesman? 'To millions of one-time admirers, Charles Lindbergh's luster had been fatally tainted by his words and associations during the 1930's and early 1940's. Historian William O'Neill spoke for many Americans when he offe ...
