In May of 2009, my wife broke her leg. She was in a wheelchair for 6 months and a walker for about 3 months. She has just transitioned from 2 canes to 1 cane. In the mean time, I was a total care provider.
In spite of this, I have recently completed a new emulsion, details elsewhere, that moves the final "chapter" of the book forward.
Thanks for your interest. Sorry for the unavoidable delay.
I am very sorry to hear about your wife's injuries. I know being a caregiver is extremely demanding, and important. You report that Mrs. M is recovering which is wonderful news; you are both in my prayers.
P.S. I am still here, folks.

Reason: a poke.
I'm sure there will be numerous donators to help with this research especially as it will help the book. I'm waiting Formulary to put up the system so I can donate my humble bit for PE's silver nitrate.
But, if you wish to volunteer, order a bottle of Formazo from the Formulary and make me 100 4x5 contact prints. Use either Baryta paper or any 100# Hot press paper. Even better, make that 100 8x10 contact prints.
Getting people to send samples is an even better idea. I might even take your suggestion, but it will take me a while.
(I wasn't trying to hurry you up. You clearly have your priorities right. This is a project for the joy of it, and we follow along with interest.)
Thanks. Sometimes it feels like I am back at work and I'm my boss. I don't like me telling me what to do!
OTOH, I do have to kick myself to get started as this is difficult work and getting harder and harder. In addition, no one seems interested in it around here at all. We used to have parties for RIT students here and visitors all the time, but now all I hear is "you are on your own". Analog is not a current interest in these parts. When most of us retire or leave EK, they abandon photography completely or go to digital.
