Shipwreck found from 1708, the San Jose' carries $17 billion in booty


History

An interesting article about a shipwreck from 1708 that was found three years ago.  Due to the fight among who owns the rights to salvage and the booty it carries, it still lies at the bottom of the sea.

How the ‘holy grail of shipwrecks’ was found — with $17 billion in booty

Cheers to all, Leena :)

Bloggers' Corner

Morning everyone,

I decided to start a blog.  After going through my inventory, I realized there were so many adventures I had forgotten about!  Thought it would be nice to document my journey through Second Life so far.  Take a peek when you can and I hope you enjoy.

Outlander


Book Lovers

Hello everyone, I'm nearly done with Season two of Outlander and still loving the series.  While I haven't read the books, I hope that Santa will provide the first few this holiday season. Wink

Regarding the beating scene with Claire and Jamie: 

In my mind, Claire was nearly raped by Black Jack Randall near the stream after she initially arrived in 1743, I wonder if the series was showing that Claire perhaps stayed because, what else were her options at the time?  She couldn't very well wander off to another city and get a job since traveling along the open road on her own may have been worse.  I'm surmising that sticking around was the 'lesser of two evils' as she married Jamie to stay out of the clutches of the British soldiers in the first place.  Assuming that women are also 'property of a husband' in 1743, if she had left she might have been delivered right back to Jamie.

Jamie is listening to all the men on how to 'handle' a wife and even sex and is true to his time.  Jamie is stunned that Claire even enjoys sex and that women could even do that.  How the series is handling it seems era appropriate, revolting to modern women as it may be.

I wish they had included the deleted scene with Gellis Duncan talking to Jamie that if he beats Claire again, she'd hate to 'spoil a pretty package' with her concoctions and get her revenge on him.  That was priceless and a sad loss for the television series, in my humble opinion.  Gellis, being a modern woman from 1968, is putting him in his place and that scene was fantastic.  Jamie seems a bit stunned and almost fearful.  Gellis, you rock!

I did read the Vanity Fair piece that you linked to, Tatiana.  It made a lot of good points as well.

Just some thoughts I had .... I'll probably read more of this and comment further.

Cheers all,

Leena :)
