Charles A Lindbergh

Charles A Lindbergh was born on Febuary 4, 1902. he was the first person to fly a nonstop solo accross the atlantic ocean. he did it on May 20-21, 1927. he was not the first to fly accross the atlantic. other pilots had done it before, but he was the first one to do it non stop, and without a copilot. after he flew it, he gained immediate fame. newspapers called him "lucky Lindy", and "the lone eagle." also, and you may of heard this name before, his plane was named the spirit of Saint Louis.

in 1932 his son Charles Lindbergh jr. was kidnapped when he was only twenty months old. he was later found dead. this event inspred the lindpergh law, which made it against the law to kidnap. also, the event inspired Agatha Christie to write her famous murder on the orient express this was a huge event, many called it the biggest even since the reserection. Before Japan started messing with Pearl Harbor, Charles Lindbergh was very releuctant to join the war. he went so far to speak out against it, but eventually he joined the army as a fighter-plane pilot. He flew into fifty combat missions during the war.

After the war, he and his wife, Anne, supported the conservation of natural reasources.he died in 1974 from cancer.

The life of an aviator seemed to me ideal. It involved skill. It brought adventure. It made use of the latest developments of science. Mechanical engineers were fettered to factories and drafting boards while pilots have the freedom of wind with the expanse of sky. There were times in an aeroplane when it seemed I had escaped mortality to look down on earth like a God.

-Charles A. Lindbergh, 1927


and I thought that this book was interesting, even though I didn't use it in my report.

play practice

today I have play practice, and I also have a lot of homework.
also, every day I am going to try to read an hour of a World War Two book, because if I write a book report about it, it will count for my American History, and if I read six hours, I can apply for some six flags tickets. That will be cool. Valerie and Christina are also trying to get it.
I hope that they can, because then we will have enough tickets for my mom, my dad, another adult, and three kids! I don't know who is going to get the extra ticket. anyway, that is in the future. so, I actually have to do my homework now. bye.

so, whats up? this is whats up here, I am going to do a Tuesday Twenty list. I can't seem to join a carnival, they are all for adults, but I am going to do a Tuesday Twenty list. if you have a blog, and you want to join, if you think you can, that would be ok too. this list doesn't have to make sense, you can say things like:
Twenty things that I own which are purple.
or something.

here is mine:

Tuesday Twenty
Twenty people I know.

thats it.
Sooooooo, I am bored, and so I am posting. so, I like it when people comment here.... well, I accidentally deleted this thing that allowed other kids my age to visit this blog, but I plan to find it and put it back up!!! soo, I think I am going to go and do that.
after that I have math.
so, my mom says that I should write a science fiction book. I am not sure, I don't even ready science fiction. I don't know. tell me what you think. so, do you like my blog background? I think it kinda cool. last night Vivian came over, that was fun, except we only played for fifteen minutes. sad. so, I think that if anyone wants to exchange books with me, I would kinda like that. I have a series which I think that people would like, or maybe not, I really don't know! they are uglies, pretties, specials, and extras. well, I have to do some things for G.S., I am going to get a lot of badges, just like I did before! well, I have to let my sister get on the computer. we were learning about the periodic table, and now she has to get on so she can watch the periodic thingy movies. I am soooo precise, aren't I! I tell you exactly what I mean.

then, the blankets will be given to homeless people. so, I just hope it works. :)

hi! so, I am (obviously) all excited!! this is why, I finished part of my American History homework only a day after my class! that is really good. most of the time I leave all of my homework for Sunday. today my mom made sure that I did four of the questions. they took about half an hour. (they were hard), but I did them!! now, tomorrow I have four more, and I have four math problems. blah. I really don't like my math. I use New Elementary Mathematics Syllabus D, and its hard, its seventh grade math. arrggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!! the school kids who are my age are going to be in seventh grade this fall!!! they are catching up!! I have to get going on this math! but these problems are hard. this is one that I have to do tomorrow:

Samy wants to buy as many Canadian dollar notes as he can with 70 Singapore dollars from a money changer. if the exchange is, WHAT!! I didn't look at this, but THIS is easy!! take that back, most of the time my math is hard. this problem is easy. anyway, when I get a oh wait, heres one.

In a box there is 1 red card for every 2 cards, 1 blue card for every 6 cards, 1 yellow card for every 8 cards, and the rest are white. if there is 10 white cards, how many cards are there all together???

I have to go get in my pajamas.

good night, sleep tight.
don't let the bed bugs bite.
(here comes the part thats not commonly known)
if they do, get a shoe,

baby sitting

so, basically, I want to learn how to baby sit.
the reason I want to is that I want to buy myself an ipod shuffle.

I looked them up in the adds, and they are about fifty dollars. I have fifty dollars, but I prefer to keep it in my bank account. so, yes, thats why I want to learn to baby sit. I guess this a random post, considering it doesn't really have anything important in it. so, here is the important part.

so, whats new?
there isn't much here except I don't want to do my math. blah. anyway, I also want my mom to stop reading over my shoulder.
so, I have been reading my friends blogs, all except Linda's (sorry Linda!), and guess what?
they still haven't posted!!
so, here it is.
get a move on, and put up a post! I enjoy reading your blogs, but I would like it better if you would post.
thats about all.
except, check out this site: ,if you go on, check the crowded areas for me, my thingy is
thats it!
so, ta ta for now!

happy New Year!!!

how are you everybody!! so, happy 2009!!!
my mom says that next year, in stead of saying two thousand and ten, we will be saying twenty ten. I saw a commercial which had it wrong!! so weird! anyway, last night was fun. we had our friends over, and then we drank kitty cocktails, (really good., non alcoholic.) and we drank sparkling cider. (Vivian thought that was really horrible tasting.)
and we played karaoke, even my dad. (that was funny, my mom had the female singer and was singing the male part, and my dad had the male singer, and was singing the female part. it was really funny. :)
also we had fun playing downstairs, we dressed up really crazily.
so, that was basically my whole new years eve.
now I have to do a stinky time line about world war one. blag. and I have to get it done by Monday.

how to make kitty cocktails...
you need seven up, or sprite.
and maraschino cherries.
pour some seven up into a glass, and add some grenadine. then stick a cherry in it, and there you go! a kitty Cocktail!
