Doctor Who swung by last Saturday. He took me for a ride in his ship (The Tardis). We travelled forward to the year 2049. Then magically the doors opened and I saw my lounge room. And the Doctor said "see, you do finish that ship.

Folks in Cali have to be reminded from time to time that precipitation does occur in the Golden State, even if it's not too common recently. :rolleyes:


The times I spent in Sacramento and Merced were cool, foggy and drizzily in the fall/winter months. Fog played heck with the flying schedule. :(

Late one night a masked robber pulled a gun on a well dressed gentleman and demanded "Give my your money!!"  Scandalized, the man said "How dare you, I am a very high ranking elected politician!!!!"   The gunman replied "Oh, sorry, in that case, give me back MY money!"

An elderly Italian man lay dying in his bed. While suffering the agonies of impending death, he suddenly smelled the aroma of his favorite Italian

anisette sprinkle cookies wafting up the stairs.


Gathering his remaining strength, he lifted himself from the bed. Leaning against the wall, he slowly made his way out of the bedroom, and with even 

greater effort, gripping the railing with both hands, he crawled downstairs. With labored breath, he leaned against the door frame, gazing into the kitchen.


Where, if not for death's agony, he would have thought himself already in heaven, for there, spread out upon waxed paper on the kitchen 
table were 

literally hundreds of his favorite anisette sprinkled cookies.
 Was it heaven? Or was it one final act of heroic love from his devoted
 Italian wife of sixty years,

seeing to it that he left this world a happy 


Mustering one great final effort, he threw himself towards the table, landing on his knees in a crumpled posture. His parched lips parted, the wondrous taste of 

the cookie was already in his mouth, seemingly bringing
 him back to life.

The aged and withered hand trembled on its way to a cookie at the edge of 
the table, when 

it was suddenly smacked with a spatula by his wife..... 


"Don't touch!" she said, "They're for the funeral."

Hi Keith


I was reading the joke this morning and as I was doing so, I wondered where's this all heading to. Then I read the punch line and bam, it hit me in the head!


Dat's another good'un for sure!

Just add Vodka and you have the best of both

 You know, actually, there's a certain logic in that.


Say I plan to drink a 5th of vodka tonight and I have some banana cream pie. If I add 1 cup each of pie and vodka, well, let's just call that 1000 calories + a jigger of vodka at 95 calories... Call it 1100 calories.


Now if I add another cup of Vodka, why now the ratio is 2 to 1 so we're down 1/3 and 737 calories! Another cup of vodka and we're at 275 calories.


I prefer Admiral Nelsons Spiced Rum and a little Root Beer.

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.
