…every place he goes – even in Port Gamble on the Kitsap Penninsula Washington.
Panda learns from Dr. Seuss… the tick of clocks and the knock of knocks… the big of boxes full of books.
Read fast. Life is short.
Boy, you’d have to want a book pretty bad to go to all that trouble… casting lead, setting type and so forth. It’s easier now so there’s no excuse… read those books.
Captain Book sailed into Kindercare’s back to school fair this morning and gave away 47 books. One little boy couldn’t wait to have his dad take him on an adventure through books (81,000 and counting). You can become an “Icon forLiteracy” too – by encouraging children to read and/or going to Captain Book’s contribute button and making a donation which helps us keep the Good Ship Literacy afloat. – Captain Book
…off to sleep. Like this guy – or – maybe he is meditating on what he just read.
Aye, we could tell a ships of war by the three poop-lanterns. There were also deck-lanterns, fighting-lanterns , magazine-lanterns, etc.
We knew to douse our poop-lantern and scamper away into the night when we saw a man-o-war approaching.
The principal parts are:
1st. The breech, together with the cascable and its button, called by seamen the pomelion. The breech in of solid metal, from the bottom of the concave cylinder or chamber to the cascable.
2nd. The trunnions, which project on each side, and serve to support the cannon, hold it almost in equilibrio.
3rd. The bore or caliber, is the interior of the cylinder, wherein the powder and shot are lodged when the cannon is loaded. The entrance of the bore is called the mouth or muzzle. It may be generally tapering, with the various modifications of first and second reinforce and swell, to the muzzle or forward end.
Aye, she be a beauty.
Lookin’ at the likeness o’ the Good Ship Literacy, an observant bloke will note the prevalence o’ sails on a pirate ship. Ye see all those seams in the sails and the ropes attached to them? There be proper names for each.
To make a sail ye’ll want to be seaming the clothes together; cutting the gores; tabling and sewing on the reef, belly, lining, and buntline bands, roping and marling on the clues and foot-rope. Do these actions and ye’ll be ready to mount the sail.
Aye ye will.
But you’d be in error. By English maritime law, freight became the mother of wages, as the crew were obliged to moor the ship on her return in the docks or forfeit them.
So severely was the axiom maintained, that if a ship was lost by misfortune, tempest, enemy, or fire, wages also were forfeited, because the freight out of which they were to arise had perished with it.
Are you not glad that law was done away with. But come to think of pirates never paid any attention to law anyway. So have done with it.
