The celebrations to mark Nomadic's return have been marred by the news of the death of a workman who was preparing her for her reception.

She arrived on saturday and was being "cleaned up" a bit for her reception. I along with a few hundred others waited near the Odyssey Complex in Belfast for her to make a short journey from the other end of Harland & Wolff(about 1 mile away). After waiting for over half an hour, with no sign of Nomadic moving, news filtered through the crowd about the death of the workman, and that the celebrations are to be postponed until tomorrow night(Tuesday) as a mark of respect.

Its as if Titanic is cursed and that curse has struck again.

Aw, no! That's sad! I send my sympathies out to the family of the workman, who died. Truly a tragedy that put a dark cloud on what should have been a joyous celebration.

It was on the local news yesterday. It was meant to be a Nomadic special newsline. But because of the death, as you know, Its being scheduled for today(Tuesday) and a very nice day :). Ill probably be down watching the ceremony!

Ironically, the death of the workman actually helped publicise Nomadic. The story made front page news over here, so now everyone knows about Nomadic. People who never heard of it read about it, and then realise a real live link to Titanic is sitting in downtown Belfast for all to see.
