Steamship Great Western

In 1837, Isambard Kingdom Brunel's S.S. Great Western, an oak-hulled steamship propelled by paddle wheels powered by a two-cylinder steam engine, was launched at Bristol. The 2,300-ton vessel had an overall length of 236 feet. He began work in 1836 on the Great Western, the first of three ships, each of them the largest in the world when launched. In 1838 the Great Western began regular transatlantic service and became the first steamship to cross the Atlantic from Bristol to New York. The 15 day crossing, the first of 67, established steam-power as the norm. He also built S.S. Great Britain (1943) and S.S. Great Eastern (1858).

One Last Confession

While a man was dying, his wife was maintaining a candlelight vigil by his side. She held his fragile hand, tears running down her face.Her praying woke him from his slumber. He looked up, and his pale lips began to move slightly."My darling," he whispered."Hush, my love," she said. "Rest, don't talk."He was insistent. "I have something that I must confess," he said in a tired voice."There isn't anything to confess," replied his weeping wife. "Everything's ok. Go to sleep."The man blurted out: "No, no, I must die in peace. I...I slept with your sister, your best friend, her best friend, and your mother!" "I know," whispered his wife, "that's why I poisoned you."
