I went to a talk last week at work and it was a round up of what happened at COP23 - The United Nations Climate Change Committee's annual follow up to the Tokyo Agreement.  Apparently the American group were working very hard towards reduction of heat and pollution.  :-\

Great picture Dean ;D Hey well remembered hanibal ;D It's weird that those two pictures are almost exactly a year apart but are great companions to each other - wild! :D

Well it's clear that Ms Uranus has had a great effect on the log books. Marking the chart on the globe whilst looking in entirely the opposite direction would very adequately explain some of the routes that come out of the logs!  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Those were the days when you could dump stuff in the ocean and get away with it.  ;D ;D ;D

From a new transcriber...
Here is the CDC external link to the 'Vessel Sanitation' web site:  https://www.cdc.gov/nceh/vsp/default.htm and the other (historic Commission Corps/quarantine functions)  https://www.cdc.gov/quarantine/quarantineisolation.html
Finally, here is the link to the history of the Commission Corps - a/k/a/ Public Health Service :  https://www.usphs.gov/aboutus/history.aspx

I looked up one of these lists (the first one) and there are a couple of cruise ships that I might not want to take a trip on  :o

What Does THAT Mean? / Re: is flect is a verb and what does it mean?

Hello mkbryan - nice to see you over here :D

Interesting handwriting because the writer sometimes makes quite a loop in the letter 'e' if it falls at the end of a word like 'Ice', but their double 'e's sometimes look almost like a 'u':

Here's Breeze and fleet and fleet from that May 16th 1894 entry:
https://www.zooniverse.org/projects/zooniverse/old-weather/talk/subjects/9634060/


I found another couple of examples a few pages later (page 26) on June 4th 1894:
https://www.zooniverse.org/projects/zooniverse/old-weather/talk/subjects/9634072/


So I agree with Randi - the word is 'fleet' which fits the context well. :D
