The Brinks Robbery

• Eleven crooks spent months studying the Brinks trucks in Boston, memorizing their routes, their shipment schedules, their personnel, and their check-in times. They broke into the Brinks terminal many times in order to find out the floor plan, learn the location of the safe, make extra keys for all strategic locks, and practice disabling the alarm system. On January 17, 1950, at 7:00 p.m., seven robbers pulled off their burglary, walking into the terminal wearing Halloween masks, tying up five surprised employees, and walking out with over a million dollars in cash and a million and a half in checks and securities in less than 30 minutes. At the time, it was the biggest heist in U.S. history.

• Knowing that it would be folly to start spending the money while the cops were on their tail, the gang agreed to lay low and hang onto the money until the statute of limitations ran out in six years. Because he had to serve a prison sentence for another crime, Joseph ‘Specs’ O’Keefe turned most of his money over to gang member ‘Big Joe’ McGinnes and asked him to hide it until the heat died down.

240 S. Cleveland Ave. (Hwy 287), Loveland, 80537 waiting. But some of them continued their life of crime, including O’Keefe, who was caught while holding up an Army-Navy store in Pittsburgh. He was given three years on a gun charge, which was to be followed by a trial on a robbery charge. By the time he was finishing up his first sentence, O’Keefe felt he would die if he had to spend any more time in jail. Paroled three months early, he went to Boston with the thought in mind of hiring the best possible lawyer to defend him in the robbery trial. But lawyers cost money. • O’Keefe went to McGinnes to ask for the money he needed. McGinnes turned him down and then hired a thug to kill him. Three different murder attempts failed, but the third attempt left O’Keefe with gunshot wounds in the wrist and chest. • O’Keefe went to the cops and fingered the hit man. The very next day, Boston police arrested Elmer ‘Trigger’ Burke and charged him with possession of a machine gun. Subsequently, this machine gun was identified as having been used in the attempt on O’Keefe’s life.

������������

• O’Keefe was arrested for violating his probation by carrying a concealed weapon. Back in jail, O’Keefe had a lot of time to think about thingsparticularly the fact he could either live a long life in prison or a short life as a free man. • To get even, O’Keefe spilled the beans to the cops five days before the statute of limitations ran out in 1956. The entire gang was behind bars in a matter of days. All were tried, found guilty, and sentenced to life. Some of the money was recovered from a picnic cooler hidden in a wall of an office that had been remodeled.

• Eight of the gang members received maximum sentences of life imprisonment; except for McGinnis, who died in prison, all were paroled by 1971. O’Keefe received only four years and was released in 1960. Only $58,000 of the $2.7 million was ever recovered. • They had stolen about $2.5 million in cash and securities. The government spent $29 million trying to catch them. Revenge and resentment accomplished the job for them— no charge.

TEA CUPS

While many China cabinets and hutches contain tea cup collections in the homes of wealthy and notso-wealthy North Americans, these fine breakables are not just for special occasions. Many homes around the world use their tea sets on a regular basis. • The reason most tea cups are considered “China,” is that they originated in that country. The first tea cups did not have handles and were called tea bowls. Some of the early tea bowls used in Europe were more like deep saucers and were used so that the tea cooled quicker. • Saucers, as we know them, to accompany tea cups did not appear until 1700. Tea cups with handles were not seen until Robert Adams came up with the idea in about 1750. • The English embraced Mr. Adams designs. They thought tea bowls were messy and people often burned their hands on them. Robert Adams designed cups that were taller and wider than the base and the saucers he introduced, more flat like small plates, were welcomed as a place to let a hot cup rest. His designs quickly became the standard for what became known as the “English Tea Service Set.” • Since the English started the tradition of putting cream and sugar in their tea, Mr. Adams also started designing tea pots, sugar holders, cream/ milk containers, and even matching tea spoons. His sets were made from porcelain that was strong but looked beautiful and delicate. English porcelain tea cups have a translucent look when held up to a light. • The Chinese still prefer to drink tea from potteryware. They use what is known as “purple clay” from the Yixing, Jianqsu, and Jinqdezhen regions of China.

Women in History:

RACHEL CARSON • Rachel Carson was born in 1907 on a small farm near Pittsburgh. She began writing at an early age and her first story was published when she was 11. She studied marine biology, zoology, and genetics at Johns Hopkins University, earning a master’s degree in 1929. She intended to get a doctorate but when her father died suddenly she was forced to support her mother. • She got a job working for the U.S. Bureau of Fisheries writing weekly educational radio broadcasts about aquatic life. The radio spots were very popular, and Carson began to submit articles on marine life to various newspapers and magazines, where they were well received. • She took the civil service exam in 1936, and became the second woman in history to be hired by the Bureau of Fisheries for a full time position as an aquatic biologist. • In 1937, she suffered a set-back when her older sister died, making her the sole breadwinner for her mother and her two nieces. Later that year, an essay she’d written describing the ocean floor was noticed by editors at Simon & Schuster, who asked her to turn it into a book. The result was Under the Sea-Wind published in 1941, which was critically acclaimed while also being a commercial flop. • Flop or not, that book resulted in Oxford University Press publishing her second book The Sea Around Us in 1950, which remained on the New York Times Bestseller list for 86 weeks. The success of her second book led to the republication of her first book, which then also hit the bestseller lists. The financial security allowed Carson to quit her job and concentrate on writing full time. • In 1953, her third book The Edge of the Sea was published by Houghton Mifflin. • In 1957, tragedy struck her family again when one of the nieces she raised died suddenly, leaving a 5-year-old son, whom Carson adopted and raised. • A friend of hers complained about indiscriminate spraying of pesticides that were being used in an effort to eradicate the spread of fire ants.

������������� Government agencies sprayed both public and private lands, leaving landowners angry. The pesticides ran into lakes, where they affected other wildlife. Her friend urged Carson to speak out against uncontrolled use of chemical pesticides such as DDT. Carson devoted the rest of her life to this issue, researching and writing about ecological damage and human sickness caused by over-use of pesticides. • She began working on a book called Silent Spring, now remembered as her masterpiece. At the same time, another tragedy struck, as she found she had malignant breast cancer. She was in a race against time to finish the book before she died. • When the book was released, it was chosen for the “Book of the Month Club” and was serialized by New Yorker magazine, which brought it to the doors of millions of Americans. Chemical companies launched a huge smear campaign against the book, which backfired when the publicity sent sales of the book soaring through the roof, increasing public awareness of the problem. • In one of her final public appearances before her death, Carson testified before President Kennedy’s Science Advisory Committee, which backed her claims. She received many medals, honors, and awards before she died in 1964 at the age of 56.

��������������������������������������������������������� What Could Possibly Go Right?

Don’t Let Your Failures Break You - Let Them Make You

Before anyone had ever heard of him, Jerry Seinfeld walked on stage at a comedy club, looked out at the audience and froze with fear. He was eventually booed and jeered off the stage. Have you failed at something really big? Maybe your business went broke or a marriage failed. Perhaps you took an important test and failed it with flying colors. When you fail at something, it’s common to hunker down, to disappear from the scene until the shame of you failure fades. You need some time to lick your wounds, clean up the mess, and get over the humiliation of it all. But once you’ve had your cry, once you’ve bandaged your wounds and forgiven yourself and others, what do you do to get yourself back on your feet and on the road to success? Here are three suggestions: Suggestion number one: Reject the label of failure. Just because your business failed or you didn’t pass the test doesn’t make you a failure. Here’s why: because failure is an event, not a person. Do you see the difference between admitting you have failed at something and declaring, “I am a failure?” Failure is something that happens, not something you are. So reject the label of “failure.” Thomas Edison, the world’s greatest inventor, refused to accept that ignominious label. In reference to the many experiments he undertook to invent a workable light bulb filament he said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” My second suggestion is: Learn the right lessons from the event. Failure doesn’t happen only to you, it happens to everyone. If you attempt anything significant in life you will experience failure. The dif-

ference between people is how they perceive their failures. Do they view them as dead ends or do they see them as learning experiences? Are they stumbling blocks or steppingstones? I am convinced that far too often we review and relive our mistakes without learning anything from them. Do not rehearse over and over again your failures. Do not wallow in your stupidity or bad luck without ever asking, “What did I learn?” Your first-class failure may hold the key to your ultimate success. If you don’t learn from your failures, you fail twice. My third suggestion is: Start over, but start smarter. Henry Ford said, “Failure is only the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.” I don’t care how many bad choices you have made in your life, you are much, much smarter than you give yourself credit for. So take what you’ve learned from your failures and put them to work on your next project, and get started soon. The sooner you move beyond your failures to start work on your future, the sooner you will succeed. If you’re breathing, if you have a pulse, then you have failed at something and you’ve probably failed often. What could possibly go right when you fail? The possibilities are unlimited if you reject the label of failure, learn the right lessons, and start over, but start smarter. When you fail, don’t let your failure break you. Let Jerry Seinfeld be your role model and let your failures make you. Let folks know you’re here and you’re smart and you’re ready to go again! And as you do, take comfort in these words by Robert Kennedy, “Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.”

By Samantha Weaver • It was nationally syndicated newspaper columnist L.M. Boyd who made the following sage observation: “Anyone who eats three meals a day should understand why cookbooks outsell sex books three to one.” • The game of Chinese checkers did not come from China; it was invented in Great Britain in the 19th century. The game’s original name was Halma. • We usually think of Spain as a warm country, so it might surprise you to learn that the nation has 13 glaciers. • Doubtless you’ve heard of India’s Taj Mahal, but did you know that there is a tourist attraction in America that is so grand, it is popularly known as the Taj Mahal of the West? In 1968, a group of Hare Krishnas founded the New Vrindaban Community near Wheeling, W.Va. Though they began on 100 acres with no electricity or running water, the community now covers more than 1,200 acres and features Prabhupada’s Palace of Gold, an ornate edifice of gold, marble and hand-carved teakwood. The award-winning rose garden alone is said to be worth a trip. • If you’re a dog lover, you might have used your beloved pet as a foot warmer from time to time. This is by no means a modern practice; the Aztecs were fond of a certain breed of small, hairless dogs to accomplish the task.

• Despite popular opinion, the dictator Napoleon was not particularly short. He measured 5 feet, 6 inches tall, which was the average height for a Frenchman at that time. • Those who study such things say that if you’re like the average person, you can go 11 days without water -- provided the temperature never gets above 60 degrees F. *** Thought for the Day: “Everyone is a genius at least once a year; a real genius has his original ideas closer together.” -- Georg Lichtenberg
