    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    Your post is the first I have heard of it, Rob. Considering what a historic find this was, it has been kept surprisingly quiet.

    It has yet to be verified, and some good arguments against it actually being the Bonhomme Richard.

    For good reason... can you imagine how quickly looters would set to work on the wreck?

    Things slow with Ares, my mother being demanding three days a week shoving her wheelchair around therapy, but on the whole could be much worse, thanks. Just got a chance to pop back by and apparently it's been so long it cleared my permalogin...

    I had no idea that any protocol was set up to clear Logins DB.
    My Dad's cousin died in November, and we had been her carers for a couple of years only, so understand some of what you are dealing with although in her case it was Alzheimer's. Still trying to get the remains of here estate sorted out and put her flat up for sale.

    We still haven't finished with my grandmother's and grandfather's... and those were 5 and 30 years ago respectively.

    Good grief DB. If the lawyers have been on it that long it's surprising if there is any Estate left.

    It's not the lawyers, it's the sorting down and disposition of personal effects. The financial assets all transferred quick and clean.

    Ah! Right DB. That was not our problem. All assets including personal had to be auctioned and added to the total Estate before distribution.
