A few....

 

A Harry Original:

 

There are never problems, only the ones we create for ourselves....

 

Something for Parents to Children:

 

Do as I say, not say as I do!!

 

Something my Father always said to me:

 

There is no such thing as good news, but all good news is bad news.

 

Something else....

 

It is perhaps better to be thought a fool rather to open your mouth and remove all doubt!!

 

🙂

 

Cheers....HOF.

    I remember this one from Boot Camp.

                Listen here now!  I'm normally a very nice person, so if I'm mean to you, you need to ask yourself one question.  WHY?

Aircraft related:

 

Any landing that you can walk away from is a good landing.  If you can use the airplane again it's a GREAT landing.

 

It's better to be down here wishing you were up there than up there wishing you were down here.

 

The only time you can have too much fuel is when you're on fire.

Two that are kind of obscure, at least in the US...

 

”...and Bob’s your uncle”.

 

”and if your auntie had balls she’d be your uncle.”

From my time working at the Fort Sill Army Hospital in Oklahoma, this was a favorite of some of the nurses. (Still true today I suspect.)

 

   Nurses can't fix stupid, but we can sedate it.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
