Moeskido Personally, I look like the wreck of the Hesperus today. Kirschen Seah I love the rhythmic lilt of the music – reminds me of the rise and fall of waves Space Gorilla Is he singing in English? Man he can get words out quickly. Great song. Sasparilla2 What a great song. Dave Visited the museum last summer in the eUP. Great place! A lot of history of Great Lake shipping. This was all before weather reports as we know them today and GPS. Oh and the name of the town is Paradise!
