  1. For me is the USS Constitution...The windows of the Stern Gallery are painted white, something very distinctive in this ship.
  2. It is always advisable to paint in thin layers, twice would be enough. If the cannons were iron, it would be enough to paint them black and rub them with graphite.. But in this case the ideal would be to use black and gold in equal parts (you can use more black but no more gold). Then the color obtained will be mixed with a third of green, increasing or decreasing the proportion of this color depending on the oxidation intensity you want to simulate.

    Weather Report - post your significant weather - past or present

    Basically going to be on the coast and will be making a South curve to Georgia,so if you live in the central part it will probably be winds and rain. You can download the app "Windy" for your phone (If you find the European model,better,since it is more accurate..)

    Them Old Jokes

    The Queen takes the visiting pope for a ride in a carriage through London. Suddenly one of the horses farts very loudly. “I am terribly sorry,” apologizes the embarrassed Queen. The pope replies, “Oh don’t worry, if you hadn’t said anything, I’d just think it was the horse!”
  11. No miles,kilometres..Maybe the marks were made in WWll. It can also be the diameter of the battery base.

    Them Old Jokes

    A man was driving down the street in a sweat because he had an important meeting and couldn't find a parking place. Looking up toward heaven, he said "Lord, take pity on me. If you find me a parking place I will give charity every week for the rest of my life and give up alcohol." Miraculously, a parking place appeared. The Man looked up again and said, "Never mind. I found one."

    Them Old Jokes

    An old man asked his wife: "Martha, we will soon have been married 50 years, and there is something I must know. In these 50 years. Did you ever cheat on Me? Martha replied: "Well Henry, I have to be honest with you... Yes, I've been unfaithful to you three times during these 50 years, but always for a good reason. " Henry was obviously wounded with his wife's confession, but said, "I never suspected. Can you tell me what you mean by "good reasons"? Martha said: "The first time was shortly after we married, we were going to lose the house because we could not pay the mortgage. Do you remember one afternoon when I went to see the banker and the next day they notified you that the credit would be extended? Henry remembered the visit to the banker and said, "I can forgive you for that... You saved our house after all. But what about the second time? Martha asked, "Do you remember when you were so sick but we didn't have the money to pay for the heart surgery you needed? Well, I went to see your doctor one night and, if you remember, he did a free surgery. " "I remember that," said Henry. "And you did it to save my life, so of course I forgive you for it. Now tell me about the third time. " "Very well," said Martha. "Do you remember when you introduced yourself to President of the Golf Club and you needed 73 votes more?"
