Since this thread was from a year ago, maybe someone already did.

Don, this post is actually two years old. No reason for it to be resurrected
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Oops....

That was my fault!

The excitement got the best of me, and I forgot to look at the date!

Sorry!

17,000 feet is a looooooooong way down! It's truly remarkable how well things are preserved at that depth.

They found the Wasp last year too. She took 3 torpedos in September of '42. The Japanese fired 6 at her, one of the ones that missed managed to hit USS NC and blew a hole in her on the port side close to turret 1. She made it back to Pearl Harbor and was back in the fight a few months later.

Let us pray for farmers and all who prepare the soil for planting, that the seeds they sow may lead to a bountiful harvest.
