Default Work Being Done on Concordia

I saw on the webcam that they are finally starting to do work on the Costa Concordia (sp?). Such a sad story.

And now, a year later, they are about ready to put her upright. The report I read was that it should happen in September. Here is a link to the Giglio webcam. http://www.younkers.com/shop/women/b...ss_641766.html

Well -- she is uprighted.

But there is still a lot of work to be done before she actually heads to the scrap yard.

With the discovery of the last two bodies, hopefully healing can begin for the families. Prayers for both families.
