A Good Gift For Your Photography Fiend, And Retro Food.
I have said before, when I am sold on a product, I spread the word! A few years back, I decided to join the Digital Camera Age... Up until then, I had a Canon AE-1 with a fair amount of lenses. I gave that equipment away to my eldest, who learned on it and surpassed me in photography like I was standing still!
I never argue the benefits of one camera brand over the other, it's like debating who makes the best chili- which always leads to fist fights! I will, however, let you know about the best camera case in the world- made by Pelican.
Simply put, it is indestructible. It's waterproof. It floats. It "burps" itself during altitude changes. You could throw it off a 5 story building, and nothing in the case would be injured. It is guaranteed for life- period! The case comes in many sizes, to fit your need. Originally developed for sea faring types, photographers quickly found how perfect this case was for their valuable equipment! My case isn't big, but holds extra batteries, chip, battery recharger, with car adaptor, my wide angle and telescopic add on lenses, with adapter mount- and of course, the camera(Canon Power Shot A-80)! I think I paid about 50-60 bucks for mine, and gave my son one that was much bigger for $120.. Good investment, great gift!
My cooking lately has a retro feel to it.. sloppy joes, yesterday some Bisquick/sausage/cheese ball appetizers, and tuna melts(as shown) I am rediscovering the dishes we ate after WWII, when a little money was finally getting into the middle classes pockets.. Have good week-ends, everybody!
