Tue Dec 1, 2009 6:22am
- Ahoy Members and Friends,I look forward to seeing many of you on the 7th at the Ancient Mariner - Navy League Pearl Harbor Memorial event. Then on the 21st at our luncheon on the O'Brien.I consider our council website, http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PMMC-NLUS, a blog with news and items hopefully of interest. Our links page, http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PMMC-NLUS/links, continues to expand. I just added "In Peace and War." You might appreciate the article on Somali pirates as well as some of the other posts. Seems the pirate trade is a regular industry complete with investors ashore.I am going to close out our single poll on the subject by the end of the year. Care to cast your vote before then? Just go to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PMMC-NLUS/polls.Should the USN ensure safety and security of U.S.-flagged ships? See http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PMMC-NLUS/message/519 on the subject. Additional information on the web.
Created on Sep 25, 2009Hope Thanksgiving was meaningful for you and your family. Now to get in the spirit of Christmas.I have a new-to-me computer with a lot of features - sometimes it seems to be too many. Bought the Dell desktop with Vista operating system two years ago but just set it up last week. You don't want to know the difficulty I have had with three others. Never could figure out the hours they chose to work - seemed to be more furlough time than on-the-job time.Have a good week - keep in touch.If you have a maritime URL you visit and you think it would be of interest to others, feel free to post it to our links page.Phelps(916) 739-6949__________________________________________In Peace and War
