Uh oh, I think I'm a new mom again. I saw this cocker spaniel baby and fell in love. The other cutie is my daughter.

Nice image, Cheryl, but how is Paris going to feel about the addition? smilesmile

We've had puppies coming and going here, so he just raises an eyebrow as if, "Geez, another one to annoy me." He was less happy when he realized I was paying attention to the pup. He is so sweet

I see a few new cameras have been announced. Are you getting a new one?

Nope. Can't afford it for the business. If I'd stayed with my full-time job and done photography on the side instead of taking the plunge into photog land full time, I'd probably be picking up the 5D Mk2 for its phenomenal noise performance, but after shooting the original 5D (rented or from CPS) for several weddings, I'll settle for a lightly used 5D as prices come down even more late this year. I expect to be able to pick up a 5D for somewhere around $1,300 after the 5DII actually hits the shelves.

I was amazed at how little noise the 5D had at iso3200 on a properly exposed image, a big deal for indoor weddings and one that would save me plenty of pp time in front of the computer after the shoot. And I do love what the 5D does for the 17-40. Nothing like an ACTUAL 17mm. gringrin

Not that I wouldn't love to equip myself with the 5D Mk2 with the 50D as backup. gringrin

How could you say no to a face like that? Either of them.

The new cameras just confuse me at this point. I'm happy with my 5D. I'd like faster fps but oh well, can't have it all -- mine only has 7K on it so can't even justify a new camera, plus I'd need a new Mac to handle the file sizes.

Thanks guys,

This puppy has claimed a spot in my heart, that's for sure. He is just so cute, and he's not doing the bloodcurdling screams at night that Milly tortured us with, just a few little whines then he goes to sleep.

Me too, that's one reason for the 5D. I've got an older G4 running OS 10.3.9. New camera means new CS (3 or 4) which means new OS which means new computer. Sigh.

Sweet additional image there, Cheryl. smile

Don't show your wife. The pup was on his way to my brother in law's house but they stopped here first. I was all don't even bring that thing inside, I've just cleaned the floors. That was Friday afternoon.

By Saturday, the pup is up on my couch wearing a new scarf. He is just too cute.

    • Looks interesting. They have those nets that you put down a hole that do the same thing, but I can see where some people would prefer this more solid version.
    •   The land in question is a 40 acre parcel up near Remer. My FIL's uncle has owned it since my FIL was a small child and he has been spending time up there ever since. It's a cool parcel of land with lake frontage but it is hard to get to. The last mile or so is basically an ATV trail. When it is dry enough we can get in with trucks but the last time I was up there there were a lot of trees across the trail that would need to be cleared.    I would love to be able to own that land but ultimately it has to be an immediate family member. My FIL says he was supposed to inherit it because his dad used to be half owner as well. It is looking less and less likely that will happen because the current owner's wife is in a nursing home and the money has run out. We think there may be a lien on the property already but don't know for sure.    My FIL needs to talk to his uncle about the situation before it's too late but I think he is holding out hoping to inherit it. I hope that happens but I'm pretty sure it won't.
    • This is a good way to keep them crisp
    •   I was just wondering where it was since you said you needed a 4 wheeler to get into it. I know the woods up in that area pretty well after years of hunting, snowmobiling and Dual Sport riding all over. Not thinking of buying but just wondering where it was?
    • I'm not fighting with anyone.   Many ways to make antennas, and for receivers in cars wavelengths aren't all that important.   Class up your vehicle with a wire nut or a fox tail or whatever you like.  
    •   Still a possibility but due to family dynamics it would have to be a joint venture with my FIL. He is the one that would have to technically make the purchase and we would go halves with him but he isn't doing anything about it right now.    It may still be a possibility but I'm not holding my breath.
    • sounds like draw length is too long
    • Wax all the string except where the serving is as the wax can get under it and cause it to slip   You should be able to tell the serving because the string will be thicker. Serving is just a thin string wrapped around you bow string. Will be around your peep sight around your d loop   If all else fails just go to your local archery shop and ask them for some pointer about waxing and other general bow maintenance that you should be doing hope some of this info helps though good luck!
