Hi PE,
I am glad that your video is coming out. But the Book should come befor the video, even if you need to sit on the disk for awhile. Call me an old fashioned old fert. But I believe that the written word contains an intrinsic value that images,still or moving, detract from. Reading requires an effort , and therefor a participation, from the reader that is absecent in movies. If the movie replaces the book, and I mean that in general, not just your movie and your book, it contributes to the continuous dumbing down of society.:(

I know that Bill and agree.

Oh, and you are an old Fert, whatever that is! (you asked for it!) :D

"Fert" - Isn't that how Chaucer spells it in "The Miller's Tale"? I think the vowel has changed to a short "a" sound these days. ;^)

Hot flash! What about releasing the book with the disk?

Even better release the two in a package that includes Ron living with you for two weeks of one on one in home training!

This is available (now that I have my insurance fixed up and now that I have incorporated), but it is a bit pricey! :D

Only, you come here! :D

Which is better by far than an oblique shameless pug. A woman I worked with had one. The sneaky little bug-eyed screw-tailed mutt thought the world was his urinal!:blink:

Oh, sorry.

Just a "pet" peeve.:pouty:;)

Y'know, the worst part about this is that I know what I did to deserve this! It all seems to have started when I bought a Mustang!

Always take care of your pet peeve. If you do not then PETA will come after you for neglecting a pet.

You know about PETA don't you? People Eating Tasty Animals

But still better than a PITA or a stick in the eye.

That's the thing about peeves. People just keep petting them and petting them and they never go away!;)

I can't do anything about being an Old Fert. But I think that"One word can be worth a thousand Pictures." By using an e instead of an a, I was trying to be "nice". A:devil:gainst my nature.:ninja::bandit::devil:

Bill;

I've thought about this for a day or so since you suggested that the book be released first. I see your reasoning but I would like to bring to your attention the fact that you have seen all parts of my course, and this may be influencing your POV. For those who are wavering about homemade emulsions, perhaps the disk will be valuable to them, as much so as the book.

Yes Ron,
I will admit that you have a good argument there. But I will say that anyone who depends entirely on the DVD and dose not read the book, would be doing himself a disservice. Personaly, I would rather visualize from a well written book than see "the real thing". But then, I was a poet 30 years befor I picked up a camera.
