  1. Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh! (A Letter From Camp) - Allan Sherman 1963 original release (Dr. Demento 20th Anniversary Collection: The Greatest Novelty Records Of All Time album) Hello Muddah, hello Faddah Here I am at Camp Grenada Camp is very entertaining And they say we'll have fun if it stops raining I went hiking with Joe Spivey He developed poison ivy You remember Leonard Skinner He got Ptomaine poisoning last night after dinner All the counsellors hate the waiters And the lake has alligators And the head coach wants no sissies So he reads to us from something called Ulysses
  2. All Around The World Or The Myth Of Fingerprints - Paul Simon (Graceland album) 1986
  3. The condo committee has announced that our clubhouse facilities in Door County will be reopening again this month after a lengthy shutdown due to the pandemic. They listed several new conditional restrictions on its use, including number five listed below. 5. The bathrooms will be open, even though the facility will only be cleaned twice a week. In the past we have had owners or guests leave the bathrooms unsanitary and uninhabitable due to clogged toilets and feces on the counter and floor, as well as other issues. Should that happen again the bathrooms will be closed immediately. Now I realize that there are many things that we must be reminded to do now that we never had to do before the pandemic arrived like social distancing, wearing masks, etc. ……, but really now, has the pandemic caused humanity to sink to this level or are there just people out there having been raised without potty training when they were children?

  5. My wife thought she wouldn't like it because it looked too homogeneous, but I thought it just looked like a challenge. Some areas were relatively easy, but once we had those areas solved, the admiral had to give in as her sight is somewhat compromised right now due to cataract surgery that was delayed due to the virus. At times even my determination was taxed to the verge of giving up, but then my stubborn streak kicked in and finally after about three weeks it was done and number fourteen was started.
  6. Although this pandemic is anything but funny, especially since we are leading the world in the number of cases, humor is in many cases just what the doctor ordered to alleviate some of the stress that we are under. So, here is some more medicine.
  7. This is pandemic puzzle "Lucky" number thirteen. This was quite a tough nut to crack as the subject was somewhat blurred and even the few distinct objects were formed by many separate pieces. The two butterflies for example were on eight individual pieces.

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 “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
