Personally I couldn't give a 4XXXX what name is on the camera as long as it's a quality product and takes my K-mount lenses.
well i must say i like pentax, and if i buy one, I wouldn`t expect it to say Ricoh on it.

Pentax cameras always had tags of owners.. Ricoh just put it in a different place/font, and I think it was done tastefully enough. But good luck choosing products based on who put their name on it.
Honeywell and Asahi?

Richard "Who" ?! Was he a Starr or something like that ...
From Wikipedia:

QuoteQuote:
Ringo Starr MBE (born Richard Starkey; 7 July 1940) is an English musician, singer, songwriter and actor who gained worldwide fame as the drummer for the Beatles.
And . . . . .

QuoteQuote:
In November 1959, Starkey joined Al Caldwell's Texans, a skiffle group who were looking for someone with a proper drum kit so that the group could transition from one of Liverpool's best-known skiffle acts to a full-fledged rock and roll band. They had begun playing local clubs as the Raging Texans, then Jet Storm and the Raging Texans before settling on Rory Storm and the Hurricanes soon before recruiting Starkey. About this time he adopted the stage name Ringo Starr; derived from the rings he wore and also because it implied a country western influence. His drum solos were billed as Starr Time.

Yep. Extra sharp. I almost didn't eat it though because it had the company's name on it. It's simply outrageous that a company would invest time, energy, and millions of dollars then have the nerve, the gall, the chutzpah to put its name on it.

But I want it to have the OLD cheese company's name on it - the way it always* was, the way everyone** remembers!



*valid for certain values of 'always'.
**valid for certain values of 'everyone'.

PS: Fish n' chips for lunch. I've had better.

I had chips with nacho cheese at yesterday's softball game. Not bad for overheated cheese and stale chips.

The hot dogs were better though. Softball/ baseball and hot dogs just kinda belong together...with a slice of bacon on top.

I had barbequed chikin on a stik at my son's team's (he's the coach) High School Lacrosse game today.

The Mothers' Club is far to caring to offer beef, sausage or bacon. Wouldn't want to put a law partner's or CEO's arteries at risk. Wouldn't be prudent.

Plenty of grilled veggies, fruit, flavored fizzy water (recycle those cans, please), fish tacos - and CHIKIN!!

Lots of Nikon and Canon. MY lens is bigger than YOURS. They even had a genset and a dish with a projector set up in a tent to show the NCAA LAX semi-final games on a sheet.

Ahhhhh, BMW lifestyle at its finest.

Doesn't sound very nutricious; totally lacking in major food groups like beer and cheese. And probably devoid of vitamins like cholesteral except for a couple of bacon strips.

That is good.

The crackers with pepper jelly did a number on me later on... Picture Godzilla popping a Finn in his mouth, then gagging him out just like He did the 4-door Fiat

Got a Brisket, pulled pork and a bottle of home-made BBQ sauce for dinner tomorrow. A pay-back from helping a co-worker with a
starter-motor replacing job.

Subway bread has some secret yeast...It attracts me and it might attract the big lizard
And they are pretty generous with the Bacon.

Tillamook Cheddar?
I buy Bandon Cheddar. It looks and tastes like the Tillamook stuff, but is named for a scenic village hundred or so miles further down the Oregon Coast. The big secret is that the Tillamook guys (big bullies) bought out the Bandon Creamery some years ago and the cheeses are essentially the same product, only at different price points.
