Denny, Franko, PP, DW,
Thank you -

Yes, I suppose it pays to take care in this intense
heat, our little pale face people weren't built
for intense heat (:

Skippering is on hold now for about 5 weeks - until the treatment and the after-effects are passed. Finite time now - this has gone on since April, so on the home stretch now.
Notice all the ships in the link except one are US ones - I've competed twice in the European Tall Ships Race and know most of those from this side of the pond, but I'm not familiar with the ones you gave - thanks for that.
Interesting what you wrote about modern history. As you may know - I taught history in high school for 17 years before coming to my present life and it has changed a great deal. I specialised in the Nazis, Stalin and much of the twentieth century, including Vietnam and the Cuban Missile Crisis. When I was at school, they seemed to have the impression that all history ended with the death of Queen Victoria (1901) which I found very frustrating.
The Tall Ships were very well received when
they came to Dublin, everyone enjoyed the spectacle.

So good to see you around,Tony.

BTW,
There's an Irish TV series, called

LOVE/HATE.. which is particularly
good .. and has won many awards..

somewhat like The Sopranos, it
deals with the underworld criminal activity
over here, and is said to hold very true
to real life..
Watch out for it..

I know the BBC bought it.

Happeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Wednesday, EL, Grace, Quinn, Tony, Tally, and Franko and newbie Ricky F!!! Pay day, had some running around to do. El, she will be back you cant keep a good woman, uh, GREAT woman down. She would never abandon her own thread. I bet she would even go down with a sinking ship if there was one.(especially if there were cats on board) EL, the picture has gone out to you. Gas has gone back UPPPPPPPPPP 20 cents a gallon.(Last night at work, everyone was being so negative on different subjects) and one of the managers said, "Can anyone say anything positive?" So I said, "I am positive I have a headache." Now everyone laughed. Are things getting worse? Absolutely. Are we going to just lay down by the side of the road and let troubles run us over? Absolutely NOT. People in New York are passing out due to the high temps.(Talk about a way to get some damn free oxygen from those cute EMT's!!!!)I wonder if Mayor Bloomberg is going to do his ranting and raving over the BIG GULP seven-eleven soda that people are drinking to try and stay hydrated.(I bought a little fan at Walmart for $1.50) Called.... O 2 COOL. Works fantastic. Until the batteries die. I carry it everywhere. At that price, stock up on 3 or 4, and dont forget to buy those cool down towels, which lowers body temp 20 degrees. All you do is wet it, and it stays cold for about 6 hours. Great for outdoor chores. I leave for work in one hour. Make it a great evening, too.
Yes, I agree Vee about the little
Hand held fans, I brought one to a friend
In hosp once, it helped.

Also interesting what you say about the..cool down towels..
what a GREAT idea, what is the brand name?
Haven't seen them around here, perhaps if I had a
Brand name it would narrow it down.

Thanks Vee -

Don't work TOO hard in the heat...

Sadly I can't locate the roster of ships that have come in in past years. I was surprised myself to see that the majority are US. I expected other countries to be represented.
I recall you were an HS history teacher. And I see that from a teacher's perspective you also has frustrations with the stagnant curriculum. What was the rationale for this, do you know?
Not that surprising other countries aren't represented - crossing the pond would take about 5-6 weeks and that would be dead time for a vessel - unlikely to be able to fill paying berths for that. Then navigating up to the Great Lakes - round trip of both ways around another week. That takes out three months at prime earning time in summer.

No, you miss my point on the history. When I was at school as a pupil it was somewhat stagnant. Now it is very much up-to-date - certainly in the UK, there is much taught about the twentieth century, particularly the totalitarian regimes.

There was a very good detective drama called Jack Taylor, set in Galway. Channel 4 bought it, it was made by a German company. Brought back memories as his local was one of the pubs I drank the black stuff in when I was over.

Btw, loved Kilmainham Gaol when I visited Dublin - absolutely superb. However, the Liffey, about which I had such romantic notions, could certainly do with a clean!

It takes time for history to bubble down. We are just finding things out about the missle crisis we didn't know. Cuba had working missiles during the crisis that were under the command of a soviets. The Russians were afraid the guy would fire them

To be honest mate don't think even a Cuban red would be that stupid,considering the amount of ordinance your country has,and wouldn't take much to obliterate Cuba...

just look what we did to public water supplies in central America in the 80's

and it was a hell of a lot cheaper than just fueling a ICBM

Keeping the pecker up - have lost some weight, but coping with the sore throat the radiotherapy's given me.

Think the guy you may be thinking of from Nelson's time was Cochrane - there was also Coddrington - people forget the wealth of talent the RN had in its captains during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars.
