Your favorite saying

Recommended Posts

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!!

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.

I look at it as those of us with infirmities med problems financial death of a loved one and you begin to feel sorry for yourself, look around and there is someone in worse shape. I probably could have stated that a little better

    John, there is an old saying that I have tried to live by since coming to grips with finding out that I had MD.  (Since my MD doctor seemed to indicate that I have already lived beyond my expiration date.)


    We need to use every bit of energy Mother Nature gave us before Father Time takes it away.

Gidday everyone.

I am sure there will be local examples of the following all over the world.

"He's got a few Kangaroos loose in his top paddock".

Someone who suffers some mental health issues.

As someone who the above has been said about I am in no way, shape or form denigrating mental health issues.

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.
