brownie Several years ago I received my very first digital camera as a birthday gift from Beloved Girlfriend. It took tiny, crappy, fuzzy images but I was insane with delight to have it. My old film camera was henceforth banished to the back of the closet.

Fast forward a decade and I'm busy clearing out the junk which is threatening to overwhelm me. Lo and behold I find my old film camera. And it still works. The battery hasn't even corroded and there's even film in it.

A miracle! Praise Cthuhlu!

I finish out the roll of film by annoying the cat with a series of candid shots and then drop it off at the local drug store. From all indications this isn't as rare an occurrence as I thought it would be. A mere 45 minutes later and my pictures are ready.

I'm amazed as the pictures are beautiful in a way that digital printouts just somehow aren't. Maybe it's the magic of film grain, maybe I'm just nostalgiac, but I'm keeping the camera.

Now where did I put my 8-track tapes?


I know this is getting boring but I decided that I would do what I could this December to help put a dent in America's growing hunger problem.

Most of us have enough to eat but an astonishing number of kids, 17 million in fact, go hungry in this country every day so that's why I'm continually bugging visitors to this site to donate a few simoleon's to your local food pantry. Just a little will go a long way.

If you're interested, please visit Second Harvest/Feeding America and they'll tell you all you need to know.

And thanks.
