Somebody you don’t know, but you should – The Blog Series – Since Somebody you don’t know, but you should – The story of Harriet Quimby was a tremendous success I decided this should become a blog series. If you have not had the chance or this is first introduction, please go back and read The story of Harriet Quimby. She was an utterly amazing woman and trailblazer.
Honestly, there should be a motion picture made about her life story. Harriet Quimby was the first woman to get a pilot’s license in the U.S. She also was the first woman to fly the English Channel alone. If any movie studios or production companies are interested, please contact me on my contact page. I have been developing this for a while. I feel there are a tremendous amount of women who receive no recognition at all. Their contributions are immeasurable! People may forget… but history never does. And guess what… I’ll find you and do my best to keep you alive!
One of my favorite things to do is research. It’s one of my preoccupations to dig into archives and discover long lost information or historical data on fascinating people or subject matters. I could go on for hours about this. I love People that history has long forgotten. But, the question is, history hasn’t forgotten them, we have! These gems are like buried treasure that teach me so much about life, art and the pursuit of happiness. They are priceless gems to enjoy. I hope you love these blogs as much as I love researching and writing them!
These Forgotten have LONG fallen off the radar! Put it to you this way, you wouldn’t even find these people misplaced in the cut-out bin filed under X or Z next to Abe Vigoda Live at the Hollywood Bowl. Side note: I love Abe Vigoda BTW – he is great!
I also wanted to take the time to thank everyone for all the great tweets, comments, emails, responses and support! I love to hear from you! Also if there is anyone you would like to me to consider to research and blog about for this blog series I am open to your suggestions.
Somebody you don’t know, but you should – The Blog Series will begin this week. Thank you again for your support!
Somebody you don’t know, but you should –
Long Live the Forgotten!
Pete Rose Swings Again! I was in Manhattan Beach, CA. last week for business. I was waiting in the city hall for a meeting. While waiting I browsed the events folders for up and coming Manhattan Beach activities. Suddenly, there it was: Pete Rose Baseball Camp – The Legendary “Hit King” – Manhattan Beach LL Aug 8-11, 2001 Ages 7-14.
Wow! I couldn’t believe my eyes. When I was 13 years old I would have given anything to participate in an event like this, especially, with the Legendary Charlie Hustle! How lucky kids are today! I don’t think some people realize the gravity of Pete’s contribution to baseball and the opportunity his Baseball Camps present. It’s incredible!
Pete Rose Swings Again! It’s all there: Coached in the skills of batting, pitching, defense and base running. Daily coaching by Pete Rose! I was so excited I was ready to sign up myself. I was so glad to see something by the man and the name.
I love working with young ball players, it gives me great joy and satisfaction. Come out to my baseball camp and have a great time and learn some new skills with me. Pete Rose
I had this funny vision of Pete’s camp being over run by a large group of 30 something Charlie Sheen or Matt Damon types still trying to live out their baseball dreams. What I am saying… I would be part of that group too! LOL
Pete Rose Swings Again! BTW, if you are a kid who is Age 7-14 get your Dad to sign you up ASAP. Or if you have a kid between those ages, it’s a great opportunity to live vicariously through them and meet Pete Rose at the same time! Either way it’s a Win-Win.
