1st International Day of the Seafarer!
Today is the first Day of the Seafarer - an active group working with seafarers from around the world, particularly highlighting the issues with deadly pirates that are still ongoing.
Interested in taking a little quiz so you can see how much you know about how your goods get to you? Go here. The certificate won't get you on a boat, but it might up your knowledge and you can hang it on your wall, thanking seafarers for the difficult jobs they do.
Have a freeboard Friday! Do something in fair winds and following seas.

Start with something practical...how many dishes, bowls, glasses do you really need? Give/sell the rest away...wow, space and the incentive to do more (from someone who used to have six sets of plateware and all the rest to go with it - down to 4 dinner plates, 4 bowls, etc)
Here's the hat:
Ok, I'm off to buy a lottery ticket immediately!
