    When Carter was President one January he asked us to save energy by keeping our residents at 68°F. We had to turn on the air conditioners to comply with his request.

    Here in adelaide we can't have convertibles. If you're in the sun for 20 consecutive minutes the top of your head catches fire. (but it gets worse in summer)
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    Does that simulate hair growth? If so it might be a cure for pattern baldness.

    Once up near Darwin at the beginning of the Wet, I was wondering if I should put on my diving mask or my glasses before going outside.
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    It's about 4 here right now. I zipped my jacket today. It takes a lot for me to zip my jacket.

    Sounds like it needs a new zipper!
    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.

    I shivered in San Diego in February. It was chilly!

    Here, it's -27 C at the moment but I'm smart enough to be inside so there is no shivering . The roaring fire is delightful.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    Jim...

    I'll see your -27°C and raise it (raise it??) 13° C to our current -40° here. (about a one day drive west)
