Best comment I’ve seen is directly to the point: “…the issue is we are paying that arm and a leg for gas and diesel that have been refined months ago and the producers are just price gouging at this point.”

Lost since 1915, Shackleton’s ship Endurance is found off Antarctica

An expedition that set out in search of the lost ship of polar explorer Ernest Shackleton has found it — 106 years after the vessel sank off Antarctica…The wooden ship Endurance has been located remarkably intact about 10,000 feet underwater in the Weddell Sea.

The find is “a milestone in polar history,” said Mensun Bound, a maritime archaeologist and the director of exploration on the expedition, called Endurance22.

“This is by far the finest wooden shipwreck I have ever seen. It is upright, well proud of the seabed, intact and in a brilliant state of preservation. You can even see ‘Endurance’ arced across the stern,” Bound said.

I won’t go into even a brief retelling the tale of their survival after becoming trapped in the Antarctic ice. Please, read the article. Find one of the many detailed records of their adventure. An essential part of the history of those who go down to the sea in ships.

Sign the ERA petition NOW

The U.S. House of Representatives has introduced a new resolution affirming the validity of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) as the 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

The ERA – an amendment to the U.S. Constitution designed to guarantee equal legal rights for all American citizens, regardless of sex – has satisfied all requirements to be added to the Constitution as the 28th Amendment.

The ERA was passed through Congress with well over the required 2/3 majority vote and sent to the states in 1972. Virginia voted to become the 38th- and last needed- state to meet the three-quarter state ratification requirement in 2020.
