Do you have animals to 'help' you build?

Recommended Posts

I've got two pets who, after my wife goes to sleep, begrudge anytime spent working on hobbies instead of paying attention to them. Lucy is our Springer/Cocker Spaniel mix and one of the joys of my life. She is truly the "best dog in the world," even if she made making my hand-made bamboo fly rod a little more difficult with her need for attention. Birdy Bird came into our family when we inherited him from my elderly neighbor who couldn't care for him. When we first met, Birdy climbed up to my shoulder and promptly fell asleep. He's called Birdy because we spent several months several years ago caring for him and thinking he wasn't ours before it became clear my neighbor wasn't coming back and we took responsibility for him. We hadn't wanted to name him, but now he gets petted when I wake up in the morning and gets a little bit of my cereal, and then comes out every night and sits on my shoulder for about an hour. A very affectionate creature with about as good a sense of humor as a bird can have.

Stevinne, this may be a some interest to you.  One of Birdy's distant relatives in the wild in his native home - Lake Cargelligo, western New South Wales.

I'm American, and don't know how to enter dates! :unsure: Plus I'm retired and don't know what date it is half the time.

 

Its my wife's camera. I use it because it does better closeups than mine does. when she takes pictures, she takes the SD card out to download the pictures rather than use a cord to her computer. At any rate she sometimes removes the battery instead of the card and wipes all of the settings. it appears the wrong date was entered. I should probably turn the date feature off. I obviously don't pay attention to it and I doubt she does.

Lou,

If none of you enter a date into the camera, after removing the battery. 

The camera should default set to a manufacturer date.

It shouldn't go into a date of the future.

does your pup have a time machine??

 

edit...I’m American, forgive me for not understanding dates 😆 

Is that 05/10/2020  date,  May 10th 2020 or October 5th 2020 ? Are you using the mm/dd/yyyy format or the dd/mm/yyyy format ?

I have no idea! All I did was pick the camera up when I saw the Kodak moment. 

OK I turned it on and it now says 7/10/2020 15:09 so not only is the date wrong but so is the time. It appears that it was set by using the wrong format. So now I will go into learning mode and try and figure out where the settings are and make them all proper, at least until the next time my wife mistakes the battery for the SD card.:(

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.
