Well I hope he's going to stop any naughty people/things who might want to  (change 't' to 'c')

From something Kevin said, I gather that a poem for New Year's day is traditional.

How very civilized!  :D

Perhaps he should turn into a peaceable farmer, beat his weapons into ploughshares to make not war but a nice fine (add 't' and mix)

tilth

Then again an Admiral performing in a

gyratory

fashion might also be a little disconcerting?  :D

hill (crop 'c') :)

I had a stack load here on Classic - no problems on Whalers. Thanks for your comments  - very useful to pass on...  :D

The poet of the Atka,
On the North Jetty Pier,
Has ably entertained us,
With his report, as we see here.

Let's hope the New Year brings him
Lots of happy sailing days
Bumping into the Artic ice
In very gentle ways!  :D

Looks like we've got an echo circulating around the poetry of the logbooks!  ;D

I've got one question but it's about the coal, jantac. If the coal gets hot as it shoots into the hold thanks to good old friction, is that one thing that might start the infamous fires that 'spontaneously' occured in those holds please? The latest story about that problem being the fire that was working its way through the coal in the Titanic (can I risk a joke by saying that cooling it down by the use of an iceberg didn't seem to help... ::) :-\ ).

How much information can you access about the stevadors that winched cargo to and fro, I wonder? Did they have a union who could shed some light on the swapping of goods speeds?

I'm unreliably working on ice hunting and may jump onto a ship to finish up classic. With a 1 and 3 year old, when I need to (and have time to) void my brain I find that cyclonecenter.org works great on my phone in a dimly lit room with a baby falling asleep on my lap.

I meant to drop a note back last week saying that you paint a picture of family happiness Zovacor!  And, of course, it's nice to know that the next generation of OldWeather-ers is getting used to the ropes nice and early on :D :D :D
