    Had to laugh at your references to a female lifeboat passenger, and the 
    possibility that the latest reference might suggest a male dressed as a 
    female :-)

    Earlier, "It is highly probable that at least one
    person in a lifeboat will have her wristwatch:-)"
    This reminded me a message from a sailing friend regarding the Italian 
    cruise liner grounding:
    The current plight of the Costa Concordia and its crew reminds me of a 
    Winston Churchill quote�..
    After his retirement he was cruising the Mediterranean on an Italian 
    cruise liner and some Italian journalists asked why an ex British Prime 
    Minister should choose an Italian ship.
    "There are three things I like about being on an Italian cruise ship," 
    said Churchill.
    "First their cuisine is unsurpassed. Second their service is superb. And 
    then, in time of emergency, there is none of this nonsense about women 
    and children first."
