Perhaps if you hadn't inspected it, it wouldn't have hit the rocks

Ha ha! When I was looking it over, one of the shipyard guys laughed (regarding salvage items) and said,¨look, there´s an anchor - Obviously hasn´t been used!¨.

No, I notice the incongruity of my comment! It was only aimed at firing up anew the thread "that won't die"!

Just looking at another - The "Party Boat!", out for six days, totalled a refueling jetty on return at nearly six knots! Hmmmm. ? I wonder why?

Unfortunately life is not the same as iPlayer - you have to watch each episode in turn and you can't skip forward.... or rewind come to that.

It's important to have something to help the world go a bit fuzzy round the edges.

Personally I'm a proponent of one of the greatest philosophers ever known:

Popeye.

♫ I am what I am and that's all that I am. ♪

(René Descartes eat yer heart out.)

Some philosophers state that to do is to be
Others claim that to be is to do.
Frank Sinatra summarised it and said ' Doobee doobee do.'
