    Too bad it's wrong. You could find out where brains could take you. Read logic and practice thinking rather than wishing.

    Excellent article Susan, I often wonder where all this technology is going to go. I notice all the time when watching movies what a difference it makes, you are thinking the whole time, why don't they call on the cell or simply text or just take a snap and sent it along ;oD Meanwhile I am surprised to see how many places were involved with the Titanic. Recently I saw a program on the building of the ship in Ireland and now it seems most of the celebrations are taking place in Halifax. What I do not understand is why the survivors went to Halifax instead of St. John's? Was it because they were afraid of encountering more ice bergs?

      There is a FREE SHUTTLE BUS going to CAPE RACE FOR THE TITANIC EVENTS FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE BOUGHT THE $ 79 + HST TICKET - THAT ENTITLES the holder to a lot: http://www.receivingtitanic.com/news http://www.receivingtitanic.com/cape-race-main-event Specifically: 5:30 p.m. there will be an ecumenical service at Holy Redeemer Church in Trepassey, the closest church to the gravesite. At 7:00 p.m. experience the Flavours of Cape Race during a reception meal featuring the flavours enjoyed by citizens of the Cape Race region a century earlier. This evening’s main commemorative event features international calibre guest speakers including Dr. Fred MacLaren - retired US Submaine commander who has been to Titanic, Bismark, and other deep ocean highlights. Fred’s underseas exploits have made him a sought after authority on Titanic’s "rusticles" and he is the most recent winner of the Explorers Medal putting him in the company of Neil Armstrong and Sir Edmund Hillary. (No Canadian has ever achieved this distinction but one Newfoundlander has.) Throughout the night we will follow events as they unfolded a century earlier. Jim Payne and Fergus O’Byrne will remind us of our marine heritage and history while Ron Hynes will debut his new song commissioned to remember this tragedy from 1912.Join us at Holy Redeemer Parish Auditorium: I am hoping that people ask if there could be an earlier shuttle put on to allow people to attend the community brunch & local entertainment at noon Portugal Cove south - just before Trepassey Community Brunch at Portugal Cove South – 12:00 P.M. CAPE RACE-PORTUGAL COVE SOUTH HERTIAGE INC will be hosting an Irish Heritage brunch featuring pea soup, fish cakes, baked beans, homemade bread, and toutans with molasses and jam.
