With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

Impressive!

There's been a full size replica of either the Pinta or the Nina here on the Tennessee River. You can pay a few dollars to go aboard. I just looked at it from the shore; it was pretty tiny to be crossing the Atlantic Ocean.

A great book to read! They used to tease sharks with a fish and when the shark came up then turned tail, they'd grab the tail and hang on till the shark was dead.
