Franklin Ship Found!

Elections are over...and I'm exhausted.

We worked from early in the morning til late at night yesterday, tallying up numbers and checking names. One of the most difficult things was having to keep on working, while groups around us were laughing, talking...and even occasionally bumping into the 'trouble team' members (including yours truly). After all, they were either waiting on more work, or done -- who cared that others were still having to work!
    And we all get paid exactly the same.

That's America for you.

We were lucky; my team went home about 11 p.m. Our bosses had to stay until 1:30 a.m., then came back in at 7. We made it in at 9, to finish up what was left.
    Now it's back to my regular work again.

Wanted to tell you about something truly amazing that was discovered recently --

A ship from the Franklin expedition. Back in the 1840s. In the Arctic.

Sitting upright on the ocean floor. Seemingly largely intact. (Divers have even been down to look at it. Brrr...)

Wow.

Learn more here.  I found out about this from this.

Don't miss out on the video, either. Meanwhile, I think I'll take a nap.
