    If I wasn't struggling just to pay the mortgage, I'd buy the dadgum place

    Easy in that it is a given that it can be done. Implementation is always a challenge but there is never any doubt that success is coming. I have never, ever heard of anyone giving up on a technology transfer.

    You've got a few acres, sell a few!

    Maybe I'll sell the whole property to Dave Lyga. He could make the mortgage for less that the rent on an efficiency apartment in some place like Philadelphia. Hey Stone--you want 18 beautiful acres of hardwoods, pines, and sweetgums and a designer log cabin? You couldn't buy 3 blades of grass off somebody's property in Connecticut for what you could have the whole kit and kaboodle for here.
    I'll even throw in a genuine Merry Tiller and a DR Mower. And I'll let you have a 12 gauge New England Firearms single-shot for the varmints.
    I'll take the photo gear and the RC planes.

    Kodak gave up on moving Kodachrome 25 to another building at Kodak Park, from what I've heard here.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Sure I'll trade you for my 2 family house... It's still worth about $100,000 right now and just needs a little remodeling...

    Bad 8x10 paper negative shot on a dreary day of a beautiful Bob Timberlake 16 year old cabin. As for moving up north, I don't think so. Northerners move down here every day, but when is the last time you heard of it happening in reverse? You people freeze your keisters off up there.Click image for larger version.

    Wow, that could be from my collection. It instantly brought the smell back.
    If you call it a "prime lens" because it's a fixed-focal length (i.e. not a zoom lens), then as Inigo Montoya said so eloquently, "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

    I do not know about an industrial plant over here that was located on ground not owned by the company.

    (Recently in the context of chemical "parks" originating from coherent plants that may have changed though.)

    If Ilford moves (and I did not mean to imply that in my post in any way) it will be very costly in terms of time and money. Most of you do not realize this. It is similar to a chip production area. Moves cause defects.

    Well, Ilford/Harman are no fools, and the public documents indicate that they are backing the plans for redevelopment of the Mobberley site, which include a new factory for them. (The location is on a corner of the current site, already occupied by one of their buildings.) I'm sure that they will have done their homework on all of the implications.

    Don't forget that these are the guys who routinely coat film, paper, inkjet, etc., on one machine, which you have implied Kodak find difficult ?

    The UK ain't the US, and Ilford ain't Kodak (thankfully ) )
