To all the ships at sea:
Fair winds and following seas in 2007 !
And with thanks to Shtandart, a greeting card for the occasion.
Sorry about the lack of upkeep on my blog. Simply got into too much travel, conferences, and distractions to keep up my routine. Hopefully this will get me back into the flow for the year, 2007.
Please let me hear from you, and your vessels, and your sailing schedules. I will try to accomodate all information and photos for the year.
Over and out, thad
