Thank you very much Mike, its a tragedy that is on everyone's mind. We know it was the iceberg that sank the ships but the biggest tragedy was that there were not enough lifeboats. Thankfully the law has now changed because of it. Hope you're well Mike. Tom

Wonderful write Tom, so much said in four lines, congrats for a well deserved POTD. I visited the Titantic exhibition in Southampton earlier this year with my granddaughter and it was fascinating and very well put together ~ we were in there for hours. With kindest thoughts Ann xx

Thank you very much Darlene, thankfully the laws were changed and the law for all shipping companies was that they had to carry enough lifeboats. Tom

DearTom, it's more than great that you won! I am happy that I got the chance to be the very first responder to it. You never give up! You are loved and so amenable to all of us. Kudos, Tom. Wish I could left a glass to you and the excellent piece. How you would not win first place now....is beyond me. Your friend and fan, Panagitoa,
