Florida Sailor All is well with the world

Just thought I'd drop you a note, one of the cable channels here had a documentary on the Batavia story last night. Not as good as yours of course, but fairly well done none the less.

Hi FS
Maybe it'll show up here if I watch out. There was one about the "Custom of the Sea" (ie drawing lots to see who gets eaten) earlier this year. That was a very good watch, featuring the Essex among several other chilling instances.
I wish I'd video'd it, only you tend to stumble on these thing while channel-hopping, yeah? Leastways I do.
...and now I need an early night. Got to get up at dawn-crack to get my daughter on a flight to NY. Wish I was going too...

Know what you mean, we used to have three or four channels and would fight over which one to watch, now we have over 50 and it's not even worth while to read through the listings most nights. every now and then I'll see one on the listings channel that catches my interest enough to say, but usually I either let my wife pick of I retreat to my office in the back bedroom and switch on something like CNN and play on the computer.
