Thanks for the welcome, folks. I'm glad to be here and ready to learn from the LF folks in this forum.

Gary, yep, I am in north central Arkansas about 70 mi. north of Little Rock. It's nice up here, very scenic, and all that jazz. It might even approach Heaven, or at least the Garden of Eden, if we can get rid of the dang ticks that are so inclined to feast on me whenever I go out into the wild woods and hills to shoot some poor helpless film.
