The Houston Chronicle features Alis the Aviator!

It was great to chat with Joy Sewing last week for a bit about Alis the Aviator. And I was excited to learn about her book for young people, Ava and the Prince: The Adventure of Two Rescue Pups (I love animals so much – rescue dogs especially!).

Thanks again, Joy!

“With the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, children’s book authors are celebrating the milestone with an array of titles focused on everything from space exploration to aviation.

One of the these is “Alis the Aviator” by Missouri City resident and Canadian native Danielle Metcalfe-Chenail about the life of Dr. Alis Kennedy, the first Indigenous woman to obtain a commercial pilot’s licence in Canada. Metcalfe-Chenail will be doing a story time at the Lone Star Flight Museum, 11551 Aerospace Ave., at 9:30 a.m. Friday and Saturday. (Tickets are $5 per person; free for 3 and under.)

“I grew up around aviation, so there was lots of exploration in my childhood,” Metcalfe-Chenail said. “In flight and in space, there’s this sense of following your dreams.”

  1. Thanks for your write-up. Another element is that being a photographer includes not only trouble in taking award-winning photographs but also hardships in getting the best digicam suited to your needs and most especially issues in maintaining the standard of your camera. That is very accurate and clear for those photography addicts that are straight into capturing this nature’s captivating scenes – the mountains, the actual forests, the actual wild and the seas. Going to these amazing places undoubtedly requires a digital camera that can surpass the wild’s hard setting.

  2. Good post made here. One thing I would really like to say is the fact that most professional areas consider the Bachelor Degree just as the entry level requirement for an online degree. Whilst Associate College diplomas are a great way to start, completing the Bachelors reveals many doors to various employment opportunities, there are numerous internet Bachelor Diploma Programs available through institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another concern is that many brick and mortar institutions make available Online editions of their qualifications but generally for a greatly higher fee than the firms that specialize in online qualification programs.

  3. I have witnessed that fees for internet degree professionals tend to be a fantastic value. For instance a full 4-year college Degree in Communication in the University of Phoenix Online consists of Sixty credits at $515/credit or $30,900. Also American Intercontinental University Online provides a Bachelors of Business Administration with a overall course requirement of 180 units and a tariff of $30,560. Online studying has made having your college degree so much easier because you might earn your degree from the comfort of your dwelling place and when you finish from office. Thanks for all your other tips I’ve learned through your website.

  6. I think that a foreclosure can have a significant effect on the applicant’s life. Real estate foreclosures can have a 8 to 10 years negative influence on a debtor’s credit report. Any borrower who may have applied for a mortgage or virtually any loans as an example, knows that the actual worse credit rating is definitely, the more hard it is to acquire a decent personal loan. In addition, it can affect any borrower’s capacity to find a reasonable place to lease or hire, if that turns into the alternative housing solution. Great blog post.

  7. I have witnessed that wise real estate agents almost everywhere are getting set to FSBO Promoting. They are recognizing that it’s more than simply placing a sign post in the front property. It’s really in relation to building relationships with these vendors who one of these days will become customers. So, once you give your time and energy to helping these sellers go it alone : the “Law of Reciprocity” kicks in. Good blog post.

  8. Yet another issue is really that video gaming became one of the all-time greatest forms of recreation for people of every age group. Kids engage in video games, plus adults do, too. The particular XBox 360 has become the favorite games systems for folks who love to have a huge variety of games available to them, and who like to relax and play live with some others all over the world. Thanks for sharing your thinking.
