Keeping the blogosphere posted on the goings on of the world of submarines since late 2004... and mocking and belittling general foolishness wherever it may be found. Idaho's first and foremost submarine blog. (If you don't like something on this blog, please E-mail me; don't call me at home.)

Fourth of July Weekend -- Boise Style!

The Sub Report directed my attention to this great picture of USS Boise's christening ceremony that I thought would be a great shot for this Idaho-based submariner's blog...

Other pictures of the Boise can be found here.

In other submarine news, check out this article with a picture of the Swedish submarine HMS Gotland arriving in San Diego (I had linked to the text of the article a couple of days ago). [Update 0926 06 July: Here a better picture of the Gotland from the official Navy website.] There's also an article on the recent discovery of the final resting place of the WWII submarine USS Lagarto (SS 371) , on eternal patrol since May 3, 1945.

In other weekend blog-reading news, I have it on good authority that Ninme's website should be back up and running soon. If you're on the lookout for a new blog, check out "Politics of a Patriot", about a young woman my daughter's age who will be chronicling her journey from civilian to Navy Intelligence Specialist over the next few months (Intel Source: Chaotic Synaptic Activity). And as always, check out the submarine group blog Ultraquiet No More.

Going deep...

Update 1035 04 July: While Ninme is still working on restoring her archives, I wanted to direct your attention to the lovely ladies of the Cotillion -- especially the beautiful and talented Janette over at Common Sense Runs Wild, who says very nice things about my writing that totally make me blush...
