Just came across this photo when looking for something else.
It was in the dry-dock to get a fresh lick of paint, and it looked so cute. Shame about the stanchions, same on the other side.
The UL code means the boat comes from Ulapul (Ullapool) in the north west Highlands.
The boat is called "Defiance", I like that!
This just gets better and better.
Neither of Seaborne Freight's proposed ports, Ramsgate (England) and Ostend (Belgium) will be ready for Brexit date (March 29th).
So, the company with no ferries and no experience also have no ports. That hasn't stopped the UK government from purchasing the "service".
Tested Signal app on Ubuntu Touch. Needed a little bit of fiddling to set it up, and the app settings are sparse, but the basics are there and it works ! 👌 A happy surprise.
#ubports #signal That makes me think about the legal state of the app. The Signal lead developer was threatening LibreSignal project with a court-case as far as I remember, among others because he didn't want 3rd party apps to use the Signal servers. Have things changed in the mean time ?
The clip came from the 1985 TV miniseries "North and South".
The TV series is a dramatisation of three books by John Jakes and included early roles by Patrick Swayze, Lesley-Anne Down, and Kirstie Alley.
The series has high production values and tackles the issues well. The leads are all good, but the established stars doing cameos were sometimes stilted. The screenwriting could have been improved. Still enjoyable.
I've always been fascinated by the imagery people use for political causes. People have been doing it for thousands of years.
Can you guess which Union is being referenced in the screenshot?
For extra bonus points can you name the famous TV miniseries historical drama which created this scene?
