    WWII Comic Books and other literature

    I lived in Ghana in '59-'61. The comix were all British, but as I remember them were more small book like, less magazine-ish. One of the characters/titles I remember was "Battler Britain", about a Spitfire pilot's exploits. There were some others, something about Desert Rats. They were great fun! Wish I had them now. :-( Edit: Actually it was Battler Britton. Cool stuff

    Old lady sets off on solo nonstop RTW

    Pulled my boat this afternoon for a zinc & paint, and ended up parked beside a boat with a couple of ladies scrubbing the keel and a fella waxing the topsides. Near the end of the day I realized who this was by a conversation I overheard when someone came by to pick the ladies up at the end of the day. She was definitely not afraid of doing hard work! Will try to converse tomorrow.
