And the Titanic sank.
On the eighth day God created the C5, and it was better looking than anything on the planet.

Now you would'nt have thought a frog would know that would you?

   Do you know that the ice berg that broke off the glacier was  probably  around the same time as the Titanic  was launched.

That date never goes by unoticed at this homestead... i'm a Titanic buff from way back. Damn fascinating story. On the same nautical note... how about what happened on:

-November 21, 1916
-May 7, 1915
-December 6, 1917

Google if you must!
