|Here is a site you may want to
share with the group as far as Navy Day is concerned.
This site and office, which is where I am gainfully employed, is the
official site that tracks all the ships of the U.S. Navy from the
cradle to the grave (literally). We document all official dates and
status of each vessel plus the battle force count. If you ever want
to know anything about a ship or service craft that was a part of
the navy fleet this is the place that has the information. If there
is information needed that cannot be found on the site simply
contact this office and they will do the search for you if it is
information that they track.

|Three engineers and three accountants were
traveling by train to a conference. At the station, the three
accountants each bought tickets and watched as the three engineers
bought only one ticket.
"How are three people going to travel on only one ticket?" asked an
"Watch and you'll see", answered an engineer.
They all boarded the train. The accountants took their respective seats,
but the three engineers all crammed into a rest room and closed the door
behind them. Shortly after the train departed, the conductor came around
collecting tickets. He knocked on the restroom door and said, "Ticket,
The door opened just a crack and a single arm emerged with a ticket in
The conductor took it and moved on.
The accountants saw this and agreed it was a quite clever idea. So,
after the conference, the accountants decide to copy the engineers on
the return trip and save some money (being clever with money, and all
that). When they got to the station, they bought a single ticket for the
return trip. To their astonishment, the engineers didn't buy a ticket at
"How are you going to ride without a ticket"? said one perplexed
"Watch and you'll see", answered an engineer.
When they boarded the train, the three accountants crammed into a
restroom and the three engineers crammed into another one nearby. The
train departed. Shortly afterward, one of the engineers left his
restroom and walked over to the restroom where the accountants were
hiding. He knocked on the door and said, "Ticket, please."

(09 Oct 1835 - 16 Dec 1921)
for voice and piano (first performed in 1872) with a French text by the poet
(1840 - 1909)
which is based in an old French superstition.
An English translation of the poem follows:
Zig, zig, zig, Death in cadence,
Striking a tomb with his heel,
Death at midnight plays a dance-tune,
Zig, zig, zag, on his violin.
The winter wind blows, and the night is dark;
Moans are heard in the linden trees.
White skeletons pass through the gloom,
Running and leaping in their shrouds.
Zig, zig, zig, each one is frisking,
You can hear the cracking of the bones of the dancers.
A lustful couple sits on the moss
So as to taste long lost delights.
Zig zig, zig, Death contines
The unending scraping on his instrument.
A veil has fallen! The dancer is naked.
Her partner grasps her amorously.
The lady, it's said, is a marchioness or baroness
And her green gallant, a poor cartwright.
Horror! Look how she gives herself to him,
Like the rustic was a baron.
Zig, zig, zig. What a saraband!
They all hold hands and dance in circles.
Zig, zig, zag. You can see in the crowd
The king dancing among the peasants.
But hist! All of a sudden, they leave the dance,
They push forward, they fly; the cock has crowed.
Oh what a beautiful night for the poor world!
Long live death and equality!
The composer, two years later, expanded and reworked the piece for orchestra,
replacing the vocal line with a solo violin.
