    Oh No ..

    I already seen the Titanic making port once, that was enough .. !!

    (Well .. Better late than never..)
    _________________________________________________

    A Story bout that ....

    Being descended from Scotch/Irish roots my middle name is Harland.
    My blood line goes back to James Harland ..

    The RMS Titanic was built by Harland and Wolff, the Belfast-based shipbuilders. The owners were the White Star Line. Thomas Andrews was the naval architect in charge of designing the ship (he joined the maiden voyage and died aboard Titanic when she sank.

    .../// https://youtu.be/fNMCl9eM9jg \\\...

    Tidbit of useless long, long ago History ..



    This video is cool .... CGI at it finest ....
    But in real time the Titanic in about another 30 years, lying on the Ocean floor two and a half miles down, will be gone..

    The wreckage of the RMS Titanic may soon be lost, thanks to a newly discovered rust-eating bacteria.

    Researchers at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in Canada have been examining the bacteria eating away at the remains of the famous ship as it sits on the ocean floor.

    Using DNA technology, Dalhousie scientists Henrietta Mann and Bhavleen Kaur and researchers from the University of Sevilla in Spain were able to identify a new bacterial species collected from rusticles (a formation of rust similar to an icicle or stalactite) from the Titanic wreck. The iron-oxide-munching bacterium has fittingly been named Halomonas titanicae.

    The bacteria have critical implications for the preservation of the ship's wreckage.

    "In 1995, I was predicting that Titanic had another 30 years," Mann said. "But I think it's deteriorating much faster than that now. Perhaps if we get another 15 to 20 years out of it, we're doing good ... eventually there will be nothing left but a rust stain."

    The wreck is covered with rusticles; the knob-like mounds have formed from at least 27 strains of bacteria, including Halomonas titanicae.

    Rusticles are porous and allow water to pass through; they are rather delicate and will eventually disintegrate into fine powder. "It's a natural process, recycling the iron and returning it to nature," Mann said.

    For decades following the ship's sinking in 1912, the Titanic's final resting spot remained a mystery. Discovered by a joint American-French expedition in 1985, the wreck is located a little more than 2 miles (3.8 kilometers) below the ocean surface and some 329 miles (530 km) southeast of Newfoundland, Canada.

    In the 37 years since the discovery of the wreck, the Titanic has rapidly deteriorated.
    The Rusticles consumes around 400 pounds per day ..

    While the disintegration of the Titanic makes preservation of the ship impossible, the bacteria doing the damage may be useful in accelerating the disposal of other old ships and oil rigs. Further, it could also help scientists develop paints or protective coatings to guard against the bacteria for working vessels.

    While the loss of the wreck over time concerns Dan Conlin, curator of maritime history at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Halifax, he notes scientists know much more about the Titanic than most shipwrecks.

    "What is fascinating to me is that we tend to have this idea that these wrecks are time capsules frozen in time, when in fact there all kinds of complex ecosystems feeding off them, even at the bottom of that great dark ocean," Conlin said.

    On the most recent dive to the wreck site a discovery of paramount proportions was revealed ....
    ..... The Swimming Pool still had water in it .....

    Decided to take some of my toys to auction. Hate it! But I'll get the bills off my back for a while. And I'll skim a little off the top to finish this project.

    Yeah, 1951. Great little tractor. I put a large pipe in place of muffler. Sounded awsome.

    I'm really really going to miss the JD 450.
    I don't honestly need it, but it's nice to be able
    To push a tree over or move just about anything.
    My construction business went under after the
    Realestate crash. I held on to my equipment
    But I haven't been able to maintain it. If I tried
    To go back to work I couldn't afford to get my
    Shit in working order. It cost me $1,000 to get
    JD ready to sell. Then went for 1/2 what I paid.
    That Bitch leaving me is getting expensive!

    Crane Truck is going next.
    Sad thing is this isn't going
    To put a dent in what I owe.
    I was holding 2 properties I
    Couldn't afford when the
    Market collapsed. I've been
    Crushed under 2 mortage since
    And now the property is as run
    Down as my equipment.

    That's tough, I finished a $1.5 million dollar home about three weeks after the market went into free fall. It took almost 6 months to sell it and by my accounts calculations in effect I paid close to $300,000 for the new owners to buy it! It took most of my retirement money to bring it to an end and it could have been much worse.

    BUT, I paid all my subs, my suppliers, and was able to walk away with a clear conscience. Recently several of the realtors I worked with have called to see if I want to get back in the game, but as I explained to them I am too close to retirement to risk anymore of my money. Funny thing is none of them want to put up the stake to get me going, lol.

    My "business" was just me and a helper building small
    Log cabins on spec. I could have walked away ok when
    The crash hit, but I didn't understand what was
    Happening. I tried to wait it out and ended up patching
    Fences and staining decks for no money. Slowly spending
    My savings and running up my credit cards.
