.... Hurry up Benji - I've flooded the tanks and pushed the DIVE button." - Admiral Goldie"Someone noted the typo - Clam instead of Calm - (Keep Clam!) from two posts ago.

It was not a typo. In Seattle, once was a wonderful landmark fellow named Ivar Haglund and he started the popular take-out fish and chips places, along with many other great iconic Seattle items and happenings. He was fond of saying Keep Clam! Any of you been to an Ivar's? How about that first one right down on the waterfront by the Fire Boats! We are almost to the 50th anniversary of the Seattle World's fair - built the Space Needle and Monorail and many other things and there was even an Elvis Presley movie! Put sleepy Seattle on the map!" - RG the nostalgic.
