In the middle of a foggy night in the northwest Atlantic, two lights are heading directly for one another. On the radio an American voice is heard saying, 'We suggest you alter course by 10 degrees to port.' Back comes the reply: 'We suggest YOU alter course by 10 degrees to port!' Then the American voice says, 'This is the battleship USS Missouri leading the American Atlantic battle fleet. You had better alter course by 10 degrees to port.' Back comes the reply: 'This is the Outer Hebrides lighthouse, but it's your call, Jimmy.'
Evening everyone! I see it has been slow in here lately. Made it through the latest snowstorm fine. Today is warmer and the snow is melting, thank goodness!
Snow?? .. What's that?
Where in the world are you? We also have had snow over the past few days, but it all melted today when it got up to 60º
I checked the site that you put on for New Orleans passenger list. I don't know if I am understanding it. It is giving me the roll of film numbers to order at FHC or archives. Nothing is on line correct? Thanks
