  1. I wish every Acasta joy of the New Year. I hope you have fair winds, following seas, and rich prizes!

  2. Splendid reminder of the role of reenactors keeping history alive. My second book in the David Porter series 'Porter, Philadelphia and the Barbary Pirates' is nearing completion. I would be happy to forward a PDF file to be read, for Continuity purposes, during the dog-watch, by any idle hands up to the task. God speed in the New Year.
