Cutty Sark Update

Since one of our more avid readers is also an avid student of nautical history:

You may have read many places elsewhere of the fire that damaged the famous clipper ship, the Cutty Sark, which sits in Greenwich harbor in London. The ship was undergoing some conservation work at the time, so many parts of the ship that had been removed for that work were spared. The trust which restores and maintains the ship is raising money to repair the damage from the fire. It's easy to do, if you so wish, by clicking here.

The Other Person Who Lives Here and I visited the Cutty Sark in the mid-70s. We were most impressed by the ship. It was also pretty cool to stand astride the Prime Meridian.
