April 12 2005:
The Queen Mary 2, the world's largest luxury liner, altered its course to bring an ailing passenger to St. John's, NL, for treatment. The 340-m-long vessel was too big to squeeze through the harbour entrance, known as The Narrows, and heavy fog barred city residents from even glimpsing the liner. Heavy fog and severe icing had prevented a search-and-rescue helicopter from reaching the ship.

Good Morning! Your radar looks really active and heavy this am! Have a wonderful day! Oh, you have to listen to sounds around you to find your picture. I always hear the bird before I see it. Somedays there is nothing moving - so just take a photo of your favorite tree or twig. There is always a picture. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Sun is shining here with a promise of 80 plys!
