These cute ships are in terrible need of funding!


Tall ships help keep nautical history alive! They also take children sailing and put people into living wage jobs. If you’re able to donate anything, it would
be much appreciated:

Hawaiian Chieftain (right) has been hauled out since summer 2019 for repairs, and Lady Washington (left) is stuck in her northern port for repairs when she should really be down south in California with tourists and volunteers.

The goal is to at least get Lady Washington back into the water by February 2020, and I’ve been told that any gifts given between now and December 31st will be doubled; this means if 3,000 people donate $35.00 by then, the goal will be met.

I personally sailed and lived aboard Lady Washington for a short while, which was the adventure of a lifetime for a history nerd like myself. It also gave me the push to work on my webcomic involving tall ships, which I otherwise may not have had the confidence to tackle without such an experience. I owe these ships a lot and am personally thankful for any help y’all can provide. Even if you can’t donate, reblogs are appreciated! Thanks so much!

Fair winds and following seas!

Thank you all for the reblogs! I really hope word reaches some ship and history enthusiasts that are able to send a small gift. Every little bit helps!

This original post was written by me, the FYHC mod, so it really means a lot. If you have any questions about the ships feel free to message me.

Thanks and happy holidays!

alexander of yugoslavia (1888-1934)

he was formerly the king of yugoslavia from 1929(?) to 1934, and was the king of the serbs, croatians, and slovenes from 1921 to 1934. unfortunately, he was assassinated in 1934 at marseille, france. and was succeded by his son, peter ii 

seriously, he was freaking adorable and hot at the same time. i love his glasses, they look so cute on him!!!! he also has a nice-looking uniform. i’d totally marry him! AAAAAAAAAAAA

Rupert Brooke, an English Poet known for his works during WW1!!

Walter Elias Disney (December 5th, 1901 to December 15th, 1966)

Everyone tends to focus on his massive company (gee I wonder which one it is???), the great films they churn out almost yearly, the theme parks, the Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and much more. I love the Disney movies, the company and it’s practices are a bit greedy, but I greatly admire the man who started it all.

Born in Chicago and growing up in Missouri, Walt always had a strong interest in drawing such as taking classes at his local college. He became an ambulance driver in ww1 and coming back from the war, he met Ub Iwerks (a surprise tool that will help us later) and became business partners. In the late 20’s he was working for a man named Charles Mintz at Universal Studios and created the character Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. When Walt demanded more pay for the shorts he produced, Mintz said he owned the rights to Oswald and took most of his animation staff, except for Iwerks. On the train back to LA from New York, Walt thought of a new character: a mouse originally named Mortimer but was changed to Mickey. Ub Iwerks helped refine Mickey to make him easier to animate, Walt provided his voice until 1947, and more than one legend was born.

It’s amazing how this dude had, and still has, a huge impact on us in the modern era. A good chunk of beloved films and shows we watched as children possibly wouldn’t exist without him and the many he inspired. He may not have been the best person but I’m honestly surprised why Walt hasn’t shown up on this blog as much as others. He is one of those rare people that can look both cute and adorable and be sexy as hell at the same time. I know that I’d love to see some responses to find out if anybody else thinks he’s very attractive.

Manfred von Richthofen (1892-1918) cutest pilot ever, dont change my mind, look at those eyes.

Russian composer and pianist Dmitri Shostakovich, in a fireman’s uniform, during the siege of Leningrad at the time of WW II.

(I think it was around that time when his iconic Leningrad Symphony was completed or already premiered).

What a handsome firefighter. <3 <3 <3

Sergei Rachmaninoff is one of my favorite composers, he’s 2nd to my heart after Chopin. <3

Young Rach in an 1897 portrait, still with full hair… what a babe he was, wasn’t he? 😀
