10/2. Hope you and all the rest can make it.

John & Dolly

Already blocking off the calendar for that weekend, and may even be bringing some more new faces!

:D

Looks like that's the closest place for me on the list. Guess I'll have to come back!

A former co-worker was good friends with the owner of Toscanini's in Cambridge. We sometimes got to be testers for possible new flavors. Any time we were over that way for something for work, we made a pit stop, too. Awesome ice cream.

I didn’t think we would ever go so public about such a private thing until it turned into an emergency last Friday that meant we were not going to be here last Friday for the start of the event.

Dolly and I spent the morning today at the Cleveland Clinic’s Women’ Heath Department for what she described as very intensive and painful mammography. There was an evaluating doctor on site. He sent her home with instructions that there was no need for further exploration. That direction was very good news and a wonderful twentieth wedding anniversary present.

Thank you all for your well wishes and concerns.

That's an answered prayer right there. We're very glad to hear this - hope you plan to celebrate well!

Great news John. What a relief. Happy 20th!

If anyone is interested in playing with DBI, here are some cheap options on green #3 safelights. The Kodak model B lights with the green #3 dome are abundant on ebay for $10-$20. These take a 7W bulb. You'll just have to rig up a footswitch setup.

Thanks Peter. I have a Kodak Brownie Safelight Kit with the green dome. For others that are interested, I plan to test green LED light as well when I get the time. The #3 green safelight filter passes under 0.02% of light in a narrow passband centered on 520nm. The green LEDs I have are centered on 525nm, and I plan to dim them to match the output of Peter's setup and/or the Brownie Model B green dome. (I'll pre-emptorally state that I'm not up for discussing on APUG whether or not the LEDs will work for DBI. PM me if you want to be in touch about it.) I'll let folks know how it works when/if I get the chance to test or at our next gathering.

IIRC, Doug, a new visitor to John and Dolly's this last weekend says he's used this foot switch, which isn't really tough enough for constant industrial use, but works fine for most of our darkroom purposes. http://www.harborfreight.com/momentary-power-foot-switch-96619.html

Thank you.

Glad you will be coming. Bring some of those other MWLFA rascals.

John -
I'm glad things are okay for Dolly. I have a friend in her early 30s and she is on a 4 month follow up schedule, so I have seen how hard this can be to go through.

I was glad to have spent the little time I did on Saturday with the group. It was good to see some new faces at the gathering, too. I've already got the September dates on my calendar.

Also, anyone going to the Camera show on the 28th? I certainly don't need anything, but if anyone wants to meet up for a lunch afterward, I'm up for that.

thanks, Jeff

Thanks Jeff.

Our best wishes for your friend. We were very lucky this time. There are so many that are not. Several Apug friends have told us privately of their less happy experience. I hope they will accept our prayers, hopes and good wishes.

We were so impressed with the huge, brand new, Women’s Heath Care facility, the fact that they could take Dolly on short notice, have a specialist examine and evaluate the images at once, and that this was absolutely free to someone walking into the Cleveland Clinic. We asked twice if they wanted to see our insurance card. Some one has donated a lot of money for a very good cause. If that is not an incentive for an annual examine I don’t know what is.

There were signs everywhere proclaiming that the Clinic is rated the 4th best hospital in the US, thanking both employees and patients. A big thank you from John & Dolly.

Jeff,

We are glad you came. It is the people who attend that make these events what they are. We just order the porta potty, mow the lawn and provide the crazy dogs.

Baring unforeseen surprises, of which we are painfully aware, I plan to go to the show and am always happy to see us work up a group lunch.

For more specifics, here is what is on the Photorama site
“Sunday August 28th
CLEVELAND-RICHFIELD DAYS INN
4742 Breckville Rd., Route 77, use Exit 145,
North on Route 21.,Richfield, Oh
Admission $6/5 With Ad Students $2.00 w/ID
contact Igor - igorcamera@adelphia.com
OPEN TO PUBLIC 10-4pm For Info:440-248-8604”

If you come by Ohio Turnpike it is Exit 173.

This is right across the street from the Richfield Family Restaurant where we breakfasted the Saturday of our gathering.

If anyone wants to come, camp over night, shoot early and attend the show, our back yard awaits you.

... this was absolutely free to someone walking into the Cleveland Clinic.

That is not usual Clinic practice. They normally want to examine your insurance card very closely before they examine you. If it doesn't pass muster, or you don't have one, they will call an ambulance to take you elsewhere.
