    Beside being a gear-head we need to stay head of gear.

    Mike, It’s nice having space again.  I feel so good walking down there.  The Man Cave is a great place to go.  I can build my legos, do setting on cameras the way I want them, charge batteries, and do on-line tutorials.  I’m learning Lume Fusion for iPad video editing now.

    Paul, my wife fully endorses my efforts.  I will only spend money from the Roberts fund on a camera I will review.  If I like it and want to keep it I will have to sacrifice another camera or two to justify it.  I think I’ll be OK.

    Thanks Steve . . .  It’s been a rough few months.  We are living in a new world abounding with lots of craziness.  I hope you are safe and that our paths cross again someday.

    Not sorting out gear,  but I have  3 drawer filing cabinet full of Velvia tranparencies ( 35 & 120 formats) and I have been viewing some of them on a light box but as yet not thrown any away, it will have to be done one day !

    I still have two projectors but have not put together a slide show for many years.

    Well it sounds like your sponsor, Debra, has a good handle on things. I try to make my major gear purchases only with dollars earned through print sales or sales of older gear. So far I’ve been successful enough that my wife’s pistol remains locked in our safe.
