This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands,-- This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England. ~~William Shakespeare, Richard III

This Day in History...

September 4, 1985 - For the first time in 73 years Dr. Robert Ballard photographs the RMS Titanic. Ballard was leading a joint American-French expedition and had finally located the ship only 4 days earlier. Her exact location had been a mystery since the night she disappeared under the waters of the North Atlantic with the loss of 1,500 lives.
