Write? Right! I like writing. I just don't like the paper work. Pulp-free fiction-blogging is literature in a hurry.

Today we are in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Before I started sailing, I didn't even know what street Canada was on. In fact, Canada is like a loft apartment over a really great party. Like: "Keep it down, eh?"

Canadians are nothing more than unarmed Americans with great health care, a nation of people who came from somewhere else. There's a lot of History at Pier 21 in the Halifax port, Canada's version of Ellis Island ,where one million immigrants landed between 1928-1971 on steam ships and ocean liners.
In April, 1912, Halifax was the hub of rescue operations for the Titanic. (Great movie: Spoiler alert: A lot of people die at the end).


Because you can't spell mansLaughter without laughter.. What do you get if you cross the Atlantic Ocean with the Titanic? About halfway! On the Titanic the captain calls a meeting of his officers: 'I have some good news and some bad news. Which do you want to hear first?' 'The good news', replies an officer. 'We'll get eleven Oscars.'
