    Reading Pooh teaches some of the most important lessons in life that there are to learn. If everyone took those lessons to heart, the world would be a far less contentious place in which to live.

    Agreed, those books can teach you a LOT about how to do things, and not just how to get honey from the honey bee's but how to treat people and how to interact etc... Perhaps I should have read them even more

    My mom read Pooh books to me as a child at bedtime. And has always called me Pooh. My son is more like Tigger (the bouncy part especially) and I can't wait 'til he likes them enough (not sure what age is best - he's still into board books).

    Christopher Robin in the Winnie the Pooh stories was modeled after a real person - Christopher Robin Milne, who is A.A. Milne's son.

    I set up our home network when the kids were little and very much into Pooh. So the network has a Winnie the Pooh theme. It's the Hundred Acre Wood, and the computers have names which are names of characters from the books. The network started with two computers, whose names were Kanga (for the parents) and Roo (for the kids).

    My daughter loved Pooh when she was little, and my son loved Tigger. Fitting that he should have loved Tigger, because he's such a bouncy kid, even though he's now a teenager.

    Shoot more film.
    There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.

    They probably are. We got all of life's lessons anybody needs in Sunday school, and that was only an hour a week. Enough for anybody.

Great prices too. I like HP5, and it looks fine in Acufine and D76. While the negs look different than Tri-X, the prints are close enough. Tri-X is such a wonderful film that I'm sure someone will continue to make it even if Kodak goes away. Kodak could sell that formula for a ton of money.
    I went looking for Tri-X in 120 size here in Tokyo. No luck finding any in the largest Yobodashi store so I bought a box of TMax 400.
