Tonight we celebrate the arrival of the New Year.  Here in Carlisle, PA at midnight we drop a “First Night Button”.  In other years the symbol was a car to reflect upon the many car shows in Carlisle throughout the year.  A button – somewhat lame. Other nearby towns drop zanier objects such as a pickle in Dillsburg, a wrench in Mechanicsburg, the red and white roses in York and Lancaster or vice versa… 


Statistically, 2014 has been the best year yet for GeorgetownSteamboats even though I submitted fewer pages and posts than previous years.  I promise to do more research at the National Archives in 2015.


That said I wish you a most Happy New Year.  Live 2015 well and respect your fellow men.

H’lo subscribers.


I intend to remove/delete all subscribers that I can identify from disposable email addresses. Those subscribers include users from the following domains: discardemail.X, spambog.X,, etc.  Other suspect subscribers will be removed if I can determine that their domain names are associated  with similar services.   


None of these subscribers have ever submitted a post.  So no content will be lost.


The benefit of this action will be reduced maintenance effort by the primary site administrator. Me.  I will delete these users on Friday, 19 Dec.
