Being my travels down those great two lane highways of this nation as well as news I learn about them from media sources. Since I'm also very interested in historic preservation, there will be a lot of that as well.

Aye, It's a Pirate's Life For Me: St. Augustine Pirate Museum-- Part 1
From the American Profile Magazine "Ahoy, Matey!: Pat Croce shares his passion for pirates" by Joseph Baneth Allen. //// You can find all the pirating you ever wanted at Pat Croce's Pirates & Treasure Museum in St. Augustine, Florida. //// He says, "Pirates were generally a lazy bunch. They preferred raising the black flag because it made seizing a ship easier." //// He has amassed one of the world's largest authentic collections "of all things pirate." His interactive museum "teaches history, geography and science-- and it's also way cool." Of course, that is thanks to the success of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies and that knave Capt. Jack Sparrow. //// More to Come. --RoadDog
