For those of you who are interested in her, I just finished a new book that I got from the library. It's titled Amelia Earhart, Beyond the Grave by W.C. Jameson. It has a foreword by Gregory A. Feith who is a former "Go-Team" Captain and Senior Air Safety Investigator, U.S. National Transportation Safety Board.


I'm not going to tell you anything about what he has to say. If I get started, I'll say too much and ruin it for you. But it is astounding!!! A must read!

Will keep that in mind for this coming winter - or in July while recovering from Knee replacement.  Ground temp is 60° from 4" on up. 
Time to put part of the garden in.

Amelia Earhart once owned a commuter boat a 42' Knute Pedersen that was bought by a co-worker of mine in 1971 it was a beautifully appointed vessel with teak and mahogany interior. The boat was built on Staten Island NY. and plied the water's of Raritan bay and the NY. bight. An article appeared in the Asbury Park press a local paper in NJ with her picture and the story.

Her story is fascinating, still not sure, one day I think they tanked in the ocean, next day I'm not sure if the Japanese got her or what.
