    Default sometimes abbreviated as CDRE or COMO

    The rank of commodore derives from the French commandeur, which was one of the highest ranks in orders of knighthood, and in military orders the title of the knight in charge of a commenda (a local part of the order's territorial possessions).


    6 stanza, 4 lines each- highway 64?

    In 1864, at Lincolns request, Congress recognized the Commodores gift of the Vanderbilt with a gold medal, then the nations highest civilian honor. In the end, though, it would be his attempt to heal the wars scars that would be most profound.

    Been away for a few days. That is quite sad, the SIRS last post.

    I, too, had been looking at KNIGHT - on and off for the last week.

    And keeping your 4 - 6 reference in mind ( as well as recalling that this puzzle was divided into 4 to 6 parts, for testing ) ...

    ,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    Wednesday afternoon I was able to free up a few days from work, and made quick arrangements for Ocean City, MD. End of summer, quite busy ... only place I could find for last minute reservations, at a "low" price, was

    Fenwick Inn ... Online Hotel Reservation resID: 322664
    Thursday morning, I made a birthday post to Forrest Fenn ... ( it contains some hidden ref., as well as the obvious )
    to the end of the LEOS
    The Chase | THE THRILL OF THE CHASE

    Arriving in Ocean City later that day, and pulling up to the hotel, to see that LEOS was across the street from the Fenwick Inn.

    Re: the previous post - When making the post to "The Thrill of the Chase" and realized that the SEOL could also anagram to LOSE, though not intended.

    Last night, after returning fromm Ocean City and taking care of a number of items, got a chance to watch part of the movie "The Losers" ... the one line that really caught me was when they referring to the transponder as
    " wild goose "

    The Losers
    This morning ...

    Did you know...
    From Wikipedia's newest content:

    ... that architect Joseph Nunan wrote about escaping from a moving train for his convict ship's weekly newspaper (pictured)?
