Greetings to all on ET! My name is Russell Friesen, and I am new to all of you, but I have been watching the site for about 2 years and don't really feel like a stranger myself. My interest in Titanic and the liners in general began almost 30 years ago in junior high school when I found a book called "A Night to Remember" in the school library and innocently thought "This might be kind of interesting..." (How many of us would be doing this if it weren't for Walter Lord?) Now I look at my shelves loaded with books about the liners, shake my head and think "I must be nuts!!" The subject fascinates me and I am looking forward to learning more on ET and contributing where I can.
