When I was working in Chicago, the Canada goose was a pest: They didn't enjoy goose exhaust at all. I still don't. :mad:

The last time I was in a jam like that was on our honeymoon in 1965 on the Rideau Canal, waiting for the lock to cycle. Nice shot, Scottie!

SWMBO has no problem with me buying them. She does, however, insist that the 15 pounds (7 Kg) I lost in a recent illness MUST stay off. So purchasing is fine; consumption is not.

Here in the mountains they still come to the door, but they come bearing boxes of SMU's -- cash on the barrel head (or in the Girl Scout's hands to be more correct), $5/box. SWMBO laughs at me; I'm a sucker for young ladies selling chocolate cookies. Or anyone selling stale chocolate cookies for charity, for that matter.

Is that a late New Year's Resolution? In my house, they don't last long enough for FEDEX to finish picking up the acquisition ...:D

Stock up when the Girl Scouts come around. Theirs are barely edible, so just freeze a bunch for the appropriate occasion. :)

You did well to have only one mild reflection in the glass. Gorgeous colours.

I find the contrast between the decaying and the new in #5 compelling enough to get my vote.

Difficult perhaps, but you certainly nailed those shots, my favourite being the one over the field.

You have no control over Mother Gaia's weather control. You gave us a look at a bird we will seldom see, and probably never be able to photograph.

The 2002 model truck will make 500,000 Km without any problems, barring physical damage from animals on the road here. This area is the highest animal/vehicle impact area in BC. I do everything Mr. Toyota asks for in the maintenance. She has failed to start twice in the 14 years we have owned it. The nut behind the wheel didn't close the door all the way and the battery was dead, both times.

What I am unsure of is whether I will make the 500,000. I'm a 1940 model ...

I expect the Tundra to be my last vehicle, elk and deer permitting, and that will put it well over the 500,000 Km (300,000 mile) mark. My dealer/service centre gave us a 15% discount on repairs (labour and parts) for 250,000 and putting our picture on the wall. They give 20% at 500,000. I suspect they think the vehicle will last ...

I drive a 2002 Toyota Tundra with 388,000 Km on the clock. Sparkplugs are rated 48,000 Km :D. The same plugs in the same block in a Lexus (4.7 L v-8) are rated 96,000 Km. I guess they figure they spark a bit more often in 1st gear in low range ....

Those of us who drove vehicles made in the 40's and 50's are astonished at the reliability of newer vehicles. How many of you out there remember when 25,000 miles = valve job, 50,000 miles = rings and bearings, 75,000 miles = another valve job and 100,000 miles = a rebuilt engine from Sears?

Interesting. I wan't aware of them. I have an SF-1 in the cupboard, and always thought the camera was much better balanced with the flash on the grip rather than on the prism.
