    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    "The most difficult thing is the decision to act. The rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life and the procedure. The process is its own
    reward." -Amelia Earhart

    I thought this was appropriate to our journeys!

    I really like this quote. A.E. was a true pioneer in the women's movement. She did what very few of us, at that time, would've even dreamed of.
    Obviously, this wasn't just a "throw away" quote. She believed in it and lived up to it's ,and her, full potential. As we all should try to do.

    We did have here a Amelia Earhart as a traffic person who did that report and sometimes was in chopper flying doing traffic report. She is granddaughter to mrs Earhart and is working on flying a course faster than anyone else or something. She resigned from 9 news about 2 months ago.

    Thank you Roh!!
    This moment is your life, choose to live it. Grab all the gusto you can!!!

    No Keet, they found out she wasn't related to THE Amelia Earhart. She is still on our Channel 9 station but not flying anymore. She's lost a ton of weight and looks terrific.

    Roh, that's a good quote and reminds me of the choices that are ours. God made us to make our own choices. I just wish I could make the right choices in food. ha. I pray every day that my grandkids make GOOD choices, so far, so good.

    Amelia Rose Earhart, the channel 9 reporter, is indeed a distant relative to the original Amelia Mary Earhart. Probably through her sister Muriel or through one of her cousins. She is planning to fly around the world (I believe) sometime this summer in remembrance of her namesake.
