Jackie Cochran's "Beguine" - International Women's Air & Space Museum's New Exhibit
The International Women's Air & Space Museum (IWASM) has a new exhibit on display about aviatrix Jackie Cochran, her famous plane the "Beguine", and its local connection. After months of research, IWASM intern Sean Payne, of Baldwin Wallace University, assembled the exhibit.
Cochran was born in Pensacola, Florida in 1906 and married at the age of 13. After divorcing only a few years later, she went on to be a hairdresser, eventually moving to New York. By the early 1930's Cochran began taking flying lessons. She earned her pilot's license in order to promote her new line of beauty products. Between 1939 and 1944, Cochran successfully advocated for female pilots and created the Women's Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) of WWII.
Jackie Cochran in the cockpit of a Curtiss P-40 Warhawk
Cochran purchased the P-51C Mustang "Beguine" for $27,000 from JD Reed, who had the plane modified to enhance its performance as a racer. Because women were not allowed to fly in the 1949 Thompson Trophy Race, Cochran asked Bill Odom to be the pilot. Odom, who did not have much experience in pylon races, cleared the first lap, but then lost control crashing into a house in Berea, Ohio. A mother and son were killed as a result of the crash.
Currently on display is a fragment of the plane donated to the museum by James Jarwoski, a 1/48 scale model of the plane created by IWASM Board Member Bob Taylor, as well as various photos and articles about the local crash. The museum offers free admission. Exhibit hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week. Office, gift shop, and research center hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Baltic Way commemorated at One World Day
The 74th annual One World Day was amazing. Lots of photos and videos coming soon but a highlight was before the Parade of Flags.
Honorary Consul of Lithuania Ingrida Bublys was joined by Honorary Consul of Estonia Mary Nippert and TV news anchor Chris Tanaka at the 74th annual One World Day in the Cultural Gardens of Cleveland Ohio. Consul Bublys told of the Baltic Way that took place 30 years earlier in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
The marchers in the Parade of Flags at One World Day, led by delegations from the Baltic countries, commemorated this historic event by forming their own human chain joining hands along Martin Luther King Blvd. in Cleveland.
The Cleveland commemoration of the Baltic Way was produced by Dan Hanson with Angela Woodson, Al Griffin and members of their team and the Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian communities to show solidarity with the ideals of the historic Baltic Way and showcase the diversity of Cleveland.
Enjoy this video of the Cleveland Chain.
Steeped Coffee - Cleveland Cooks™ Review
We have come a long way with coffee. I remember Mom and Dad having a big percolator on the stove for making coffee. Then Joe DiMaggio and his Mr. Coffee became the new way to enjoy the drink. Automatic drip coffee makers are still around but with the surge of Starbucks and similar companies, many people started getting their coffee outside the house. For the last several years we have seen the popularity of machines like the Keurig where you put in a pod and make a single cup of coffee.
Now a company called Steeped Coffee is taking us back to a simpler time with a simple idea.

A nice, calm and respectable lady went into the pharmacy, walked up to the pharmacist, looked straight into his eyes, and said, "I'd like to buy some cyanide".
The pharmacist asked, "Why in the world do you need cyanide? The lady replied, "I need it to poison my husband."
The pharmacist's eyes got big and he explained, "Lord have mercy! I can't give you cyanide to kill your husband, that's against the law. I'll lose my license! They'll throw both of us in jail! All kinds of bad things will happen. Absolutely not! You CANNOT have any cyanide. Just get a divorce!"
The lady reached into her purse and pulled out a picture of her husband in bed with the pharmacist's wife.
The pharmacist looked at the picture and said, "You didn't tell me you had a prescription."
ClevelandWomen.Com Book of the Week
The Girl on the Train
The #1 New York Times Bestseller, USA Today Book of the Year, now a major motion picture starring Emily Blunt. The debut psychological thriller that will forever change the way you look at other people's lives.
Intersecting, overlapping, not-quite-what-they-seem lives. Jealousies and betrayals and wounded hearts. A haunting unease that clutches and won’t let go. All this and more helps propel Paula Hawkins’s addictive debut into a new stratum of the psychological thriller genre. At times, I couldn’t help but think: Hitchcockian. From the opening line, the reader knows what they’re in for: “She’s buried beneath a silver birch tree, down towards the old train tracks…” But Hawkins teases out the mystery with a veteran’s finesse. The “girl on the train” is Rachel, who commutes into London and back each day, rolling past the backyard of a happy-looking couple she names Jess and Jason. Then one day Rachel sees “Jess” kissing another man. The day after that, Jess goes missing. The story is told from three character’s not-to-be-trusted perspectives: Rachel, who mourns the loss of her former life with the help of canned gin and tonics; Megan (aka Jess); and Anna, Rachel’s ex-husband’s wife, who happens to be Jess/Megan’s neighbor. Rachel’s voyeuristic yearning for the seemingly idyllic life of Jess and Jason lures her closer and closer to the investigation into Jess/Megan’s disappearance, and closer to a deeper understanding of who she really is. And who she isn’t. This is a book to be devoured. -Neal Thompson
