      Skip, it's amazing to think that it has been almost 100 years since the fateful day! It will be something that will never be forgotten, too. What a beautiful and majestic ship she was.....sigh...

      One of the great tragedys of history Jan.
      Plus the Titanic is an allegory for Life itself...We will all perish before we reach the far shore!

      I recently saw a German version of Titanic which was made as a propaganda film during WWII. The historic names were the same.. Ismay, Captian Smith, and my personal favorite character who went down with the ship Jack Phillips the radio op, etc but there was a slightly different story line talking up the blame on those greedy nasty British ship owners of the Star Lines and featuring the sole brave German Star Lines ship officer who tried to save the Titanic from imminent doom but ultimately failed but gave up his life heroically saving countless people aboard ship.

      When I was a kid I read " A Night to Remember" about 5 times , this was in the late 50's or early 60's . In 1956 the Italian ship Andrea Doria had sunk off the Massachusetts coast , in other words my front yard , and I was hooked on disasters at sea . The Titanic story was so very compelling and full of tragic frig-ups , like not enough boats , numbskull attitudes about "unsinkability" and frustrating communication problems involving telegraphic messages misunderstood and white flares thought to be a celebration...and so , people died . If the book was even near right it shows amazing courage and dignity and that's the one lesson I came away with , just try to keep your head in a tight spot , if your going to bite the big one why not go with grace ?

      When all the dust settles , the only thing left is love

      Right said, Bob. Those Victorians, steeped in their Classical education, believed that a noble death was as important as a noble life. Sounds right to me..

      Incredible.

      Canadian Tourism has put together a video on the Titanic and its unique historical ties to Newfoundland. Thought some of you might enjoy it.

      May 31st, 2009--LONDON (AP) The last survivor of the sinking of the Titanic has died. A friend says Millvina Dean died in her sleep at her nursing home in southern England. Dean was just over 2 months old when the Titanic hit an iceberg and sank. She was one of 700 people who survived.

      (When she died, were they all there to meet her in the Grand Ballroom, like old Rose in the movie?
      The heart does go on. God bless them all and fare thee well.)
