1947 Test pilot Chuck Yeager breaks the sound barrier aboard a Bell X-1 rocket plane. Because of the secrecy of the project, Bell and Yeager’s achievement was not announced until June 1948. Yeager continued to serve as a test pilot, and in 1953 he flew 1,650 miles per hour in an X-1A rocket plane. He retired from the U.S. Air Force in 1975 with the rank of brigadier general.
1962 The Cuban Missile Crisis begins; bringing the United States and the Soviet Union to the brink of nuclear conflict.

Time to MOXIFY
“I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” –L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
October is the official start of all things holidays and if you can set aside time now to organize you will be able to enjoy it so much more!
Get the photo shoot time reserved with your favorite photographer, use Paperless Post to send fabulous evites to guests and take the time to prepare a proper menu, calendaring the steps to get you to show time without a hitch or better yet, hire a caterer. Get those holiday cards ordered so you can start writing those envelopes. Keep the holiday card envelopes, with your printed mailing list- a hard copy so you can mark it, and a pen and fun holiday stamps in a gallon-size resealable bag and keep them in the car to do while you are waiting… in offices, in carline, where ever. I keep thank you and blank notes packaged in my car this way for the same reason- to have something that matters get done during unscheduled windows of opportunity. The other opportunity for yourself here, is to decide that you aren’t doing cards. As much as we pride ourselves in them and we all so love to receive them- if you are going to beat yourself up the entire season for not getting to it, its just not worth it. Give yourself permission to take it off the list.
Reading in a cozy corner of the couch has so much more appeal in October for me, I become drawn to revisiting the classics. Maybe it’s that the back-to-schoolness is still fresh and we are settling back into our routines, or the knowing that cooler air is coming, but I begin to crave a thick, well-written novel. Favorites include All Creatures Great and Small by James Harriet- Delve into the magical, unforgettable world of James Herriot, the world's most beloved veterinarian, and his menagerie of heartwarming, funny, and tragic animal patients. Great Expectations by Charles Dickens- one of the most popular novels of all time and a shorter, easy, amazing read. When Philip Pirrip, nicknamed Pip, is approached by an escaped convict and forced to steal food and supplies, he little realizes how this act will alter his life. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott- Grown-up Meg, tomboyish Jo, timid Beth, and precocious Amy. The four March sisters couldn't be more different. But with their father away at war, and their mother working to support the family, they have to rely on one another. They put on plays, form a secret society and celebrate Christmas while they wait for the return of their father.
Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer- one of the great touchstones of English literature, a masterly collection of chivalric romances, moral allegories, and low farce. A storytelling competition between a group of pilgrims from all walks of life is the occasion for a series of tales that range from the Knight’s account of courtly love and the ebullient Wife of Bath’s Arthurian legend, to the ribald anecdotes of the Miller and the Cook. My favorite author, Oscar Wilde’s Picture of Dorian Gray- In true Faustian tradition The Picture of Dorian Gray tells the tale of a young man who sells his soul to the devil in return for youthful immortality, only to discover that the "devil's bargain" is no bargain at all. Lastly, for those who love the darker reads, the ultimate classic collection of Frankenstein, Dracula, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde- the authors—Mary Shelley, Bram Stoker, and Robert Louis Stevenson—equally as mythic, are still possessed of an inventive and subversive power that can shake a reader to this day with something far more profound than fear. They gave root to the modern horror novel, and like the creatures they invented, they’ve achieved immortality.
