Avast, me hearties.

Arr! Welcome aboard all ye landlubbers?
This Saturday is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Shiver me timbers - I can see you shaking your head and saying. Okay Penny enough already with the strange holidays no one has ever heard about. But you be wrong - if you think this a strange day. What started out as a fun thing to do for a couple friends; has indeed reach international esteem. Ok. Ok. So what has that got to do with me you ask? Well let me explain. Sir Knight is not a real knight - he really happens to be The infamous Captain Griffon Moon of the Good Ship Advantage,swashbuckler and Pirate extrodinar. Well, He is really a Privateer by her madjesties hand - a very real and lawful Pirate of the realm, but he does love to play to the more dark side sometimes - so we long ago decided this was his Holiday.

A chaming scene before he puts out to sea.

Here below ye can see His Letter of Marque - which he carries on all voyages - in case an enemy ship of the realm is sited where it shouldn't be, this letter gives him permission to board and plunder the ship in the name of our Good Queen Bess.

Arrgh ! Here is a little rendering of the Good ship Advantage for you to biggify , print off, and color . So you too can feel a little like a pirate today. So dig out that old musty Jolly Roger you have hidden away and fly it proudly today. Heave to matey or ye be walking the plank soon.
