Pamiat Azova (Russian: Память Азовa) was a unique armoured cruiser built for the Imperial Russian Navy in the late 1880s. She was decommissioned from front line service in 1909, converted into a depot ship and sunk by British torpedo boats during the Baltic Naval War, part of the Russian Civil War.

I spend a lot of time trawling through digital galleries and collections of WPA posters for inspiration. http://www.loc.gov/pictures/collection/wpapos/
Kevin: Have you seen the US postage stamp commemorating WPA posters?

That may be US by mid May.   :o

Tuesday evening at a meeting with the Natl Weather Service - the Meteorologist-In-Charge and Chief Warning Forecaster (good friends) told me to expect 11" (ELEVEN INCHES = 280 CM) more level rise by mid May. We are currently just below flood stage along the shoreline. I understand also that our Southern shore Lake Ontario Counties have been declared Emergency Disaster Areas as of 2.00pm.   :'(
