A sign 300 metres from my home near a river walk. It's a nice looking red-bellied black snake and there are quite a few along there.



The other sign is at a nursing home.

Pentax on TVSN (Austalia)

I just noticed (and recorded) a one hour Pentax selling programme on TVSN (TV Shopping Network) in Australia. Clem Kennedy (grandson of CR Kennedy) (Pentax Australia) was presenting their deal for the K-70 with a Sigma 18-125 HSM zoom, tripod, camera bag, and other accessories for A$999 (US$758).

Pentax K-70 DSLR Bundle w/Sigma 18-125, Bag, SD Card, Tpod, Filt,

I haven't watched the rest of the programme to see what else they were pushing.

As Clem is part of CRK (I met him at the K-1 launch), I assume this deal is through Pentax Australia.

Thanks for that.

I don't suppose you have a schematic diagram for the AF-080C?

Mine no longer works. It charges and I can get it to trigger when I probe inside but not from the camera. I tried Pentax Japan and their Australian importers but received no reply.

I've been away for a while so I had better get some pix up.

Taken at Wings over Illawarra airshow in Australia earlier this year. No, it's not a North American Mustang., it's a Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation CA-18.

Eighth grade? Crikey, that's just after starting high school - why would one have a graduation then? Sounds like having graduation from pre-school or kindergarten! (I've heard they do that in America.) :lol:

I just remembered my son didn't graduate, he left school after Year 10 to get an apprenticeship with a mechanic. My daughter some years ago graduated as a nurse and a year back as a doctor. I told her I was very proud of her. What more should she want - a trophy for participating? :D

Is he graduating from high school or university?

If high school, is it a big deal? If not, why buy anything?

Crikey, I didn't even buy my kids anything for graduating high school or my daughter for graduating (twice) from university so I wouldn't buy for someone else.

Gus, the guide dog, sleeping again. (Guide dogs sleep in the house). Should I make him a bed that fits him? This one is obviously too small.

Generally speaking, I won't bother with any movie given a good wrap by critics. I prefer movies liked by the public.

I caught Sunset Boulevard on TV just recently. I'm not sure if I liked it or not.

I don't think De Havilland/De Havilland Canada and Grumman had any relationship. DHC was later bought by Boeing then eventually sold off to Bombardier.

I've never seen the movie so I didn't know that line in the Guns N' Roses song Civil War was a sample from the movie.

Oh, welcome Bruce (I'll take your word for it that his name is Bruce :) )
