Alexandra Shackleton Lands on South Georgia Island

Tim Jarvis and crew have landed where Sir Ernest Shackleton and crew landed in 1916 after an 800 mile journey from Elephant Island, Antarctica Shackleton and crew were half starved and met conditions almost unimaginably worse than those Jarvis, et al encountered.
Now that they have landed the next step of the re-enactment is to hike across the mountains and glaciers of South Georgia Island to the old whaling station at Stromness Bay.

What does your desk look like?

Linked In had this cute series today of some famous people's desks.  None appealed to me.  Not Branson's palm trees, not Pickens busy desk, and certainly not Deepak Chopra's private temple.  Here's my hero's - Shackleton's cabin aboard the Endurance. Thanks to Royal Geographic Society.
