The Captain's Report

December 9, 2001 Santa Barbara, CA. Vol. 1 No. 13
The Captain's Report, a new feature of The Captain's Log, is a weekly newsletter bringing the latest news of the Seaview and her crew...

Just to let you know, I haven't forgot the contest mentioned here two weeks ago. Details on the Captain's Log mail list by Monday...

Voyage Widescreen
With the all the new dvd format movies being released, many are being issued in widescreen format. These are also known as letterbox format. Many viewers enjoy this format as it shows a movie the way the director had shot it. Along with the movies, a number of television shows are being released in this style. I am happy to report that I can now watch the entire series of Voyage in this new widescreen format. The episodes are almost unbelievable when seen this way. It really is different... and great.

Now then... does anyone know how I can get three inch wide black electrical tape "off" the top and bottom of my tv screen???

Weekly Poll
With this being the season of "giving" this weeks poll is similar to the last... with one exception. Names were drawn and you received either Nelson, Crane, Morton or Sharky. Which name did "you" draw... and what one gift will you be getting your sailor? Submit your answer by private email. Results to be included in next weeks Captain's Report.

Next weeks issue will be dedicated to your answers... so select a name and a gift... along with "why" you chose it. All responses will be posted, (along with "your" name... if you desire...)

Global Warming (part 12)
Kowalski and other sailors were inspecting the cable, looking for the damaged area. Nelson came to the winch and was told that the break could not be found. Nelson, considering that the cable appeared fine, ordered the bell prepared for another dive. Lee and the flying sub were still missing. Sharkey "insisted" that the Admiral take him along for this second dive. As they entered the bell the urgent call came from Mr. Morton in the observation nose. "Admiral, delay the dive... come to the observation nose, immediately...

"Tis the season" is fast approaching and I wanted to share some of the dishes that are favorites of the crew during the holidays.

Poll Results
At Santa's request, the last poll was carried for a two week period. He didn't want "anyone" left out. Well, the polling is complete and the findings have been sent off to the North Pole. I assured him that everyone who had posted a request has been VERY GOOD... and he need not check his list twice. With a "twinkle" in his eye... he said he would see what he could do... (hey... ya gotta believe... right?) So... the final count was...
