This is really exciting: This week, Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen's Petrel, in conjuntion with the U.S. Navy, released the news that they had found and photographed the IJN aircraft carrier Kaga from the Battle of Midway lying off the Midway Archpeligo. Lt. Jack "Dusty" Kleiss described the damage to front of the flight deck as looking like it was "folded like a taco" and the footage below at :007 bears this out.





More HERE.


In May of 1998, Robert Ballard carried out an expedition to find all five carriers (one American) sunk in the Battle of Midway. He was only able to find one, the USS Yorktown. Allen's crew are continuing the search started by Ballard. They feel that they are close to finding a second carrier.

Just finished ďFall: or Dodge in HellĒ by Neal Stephenson.

Trying to decide what I think of it. Itís not my favorite of his books. Itís definitely an interesting thought experiment about the possibility of saving brain states and being able to re-instantiate minds on hardware - but Iím not sure I agree with some of its premises. Well-written, though.

I always have a bunch of books going at the same time, so I have to stop and remember the names of the authors.

My wife and I have been reading out loud to each other Michael Connelly books, particularly about Bosch and the two new ones where Rene Ballard is the lead character. The language seems a little rough to be reading out loud, (sometimes I change the words a little ) but these books and the character development is always so good. We are currently reading "Dark Sacred Night."

Another book we read out loud to each other just recently was "The Boys in Boat". We loved this book. It's about an 8-man crew team from University of Washington that won the 1936 Olympic gold medal in Berlin. It's a great story of the Great Depression and the strength of these young men to rise out of it. I can't recommend this book highly enough.

These is also an American Experience show based on this book ("The Boys in the Boat") on Amazon and on PBS that people can stream.

I've also been reading "The Turn of the Tide" by Arthur Bryant based on the diaries and journals of Field Marshal Lord Alanbrooke. I am about halfway through this book about World War II in England and it's fascinating.
