When you sail, the whole world sails with you.
But when you sand, you sand alone.

Green to green & red to red,
all is well, go ahead,
When in danger or in doubt,
Run in circles, scream & shout.


All marriages performed by the captain of this vessel are good only for the duration of the cruise.

pbiJim, +1... I used that all the time when there were friends aboard when one of them had one idea and the other didn't. i would perform a marriage of sorts (depending on the religious convictions), and send them below to sort out their differences/compatability. Heaps of laughs!! Phil

A reasonable man adapts to his world. An unreasonable man persists in trying to adapt the world to suit himself. Therefore all progress depends on unreasonable men. George Bernard Shaw. Another drunken Irishman.
