I purchased 2 semesters of private college tuition - one for my older son, and one for my younger son. Fortunately they only overlap for this one year!

And I still maintain that a crack habit would be cheaper than having children.

Reminds me (no political discussion intended) how Europe is different, there are college tuitions but far from the really expensive US! Had to google it, but in Europe it's about $12000 a year in the public system. Private can get much more expensive, but the base starts at that $12K/year.


As someone in their 20s, and seeing how unstable the contemporary lifestyle is, kids are not planned anytime soon.


Back to topic I'm eyeing a $150 auction for a mint Rolleiflex MX-EVS, 5 days remaining and not one bid... I don't want to.
Next purchase should be film and darkroom related!

Just received an adapter ring for a Minox 35 lens to covert it to Sony E mount.

I bought a dead Minox 35EL for $17 from KEH and after about 20 minutes of work had the lens and associated parts out of the Minox and converted to Sony E mount.

Really nicely done product. It even reuses the light baffle from the Minox. They have versions for M4/3 and Fuji mount too.

Two Nikon AR-1 soft releases for my two Nikon F2AS bodies. I previously bought cheaper knock-off versions, but the quality and feel were not very good. The genuine versions were much better and help with the ergonomics and ability to fire the shutters with less camera shake.

A tiny Kochmann Korelle K, made c.1933. Probably I could not use it, but maybe I could manage to adapt a reusable plastic cassette as the uptake one.

i had two $50 Sennheiser before, both work 2 1/2 yrs before the R channel went out, i think it's my fault, dropping them or step on cable when getting up, they are very good for the money

i'm trying AT for the first time, my other choice is a Sony 7506

this $50 Audio Tec is made in Taiwan(Taiwan is not China...yet), close end head phone, i'll try an open-end next...

As someone in their 20s, and seeing how unstable the contemporary lifestyle is, kids are not planned anytime soon.
There is no proverbial "free-lunch". Healthcare, public education that is ostensibly "free" is paid for in overbearing taxes and limited opportunity later on. And so children become an unaffordable 'luxury', resulting in a decline in the population able to pay for all the good intentions and then you have...Europe of today.

Or in the words of Margaret Thatcher, "the problem with Socialism is that eventually, you run out of other people's money to spend".

Had been looking at the Huss Pentax MX + 40mm pancake thread. I had long wanted a 40mm, but, not bad enough to pay the $120 to $150 they seem to be selling for. Got motivated to look again. I have purchased one on Ebay for $105 delivered, with an MV body attached... looks good in pics, and sample photos in the listing look encouraging. Waiting...

Had been looking at the Anything Takumar thread, and had taken note of praise for the S-M-C or Super 35mm f3.5. I recently saw an S-M-C version at KEH for $26 delivered, looking very clean, but labeled as-is bargain. I figured it would have a gummy aperture, which I could probably fix. Yes, aperture is sticky. And, I find that it has a few fine fungal threads, as well. Will be going through it, soon... a nice project that will help build some skill.

Trying to revive my teenage year's camera. I had the Ultron lens. I did shoot a roll, but I can see it is having some shutter issues (early signs as happened with my old Zeiss 35S TM).

Received this week an M4 looking very good and functioning well other than the vertical RF alignment, which I corrected. It was missing the red/black/silver film id 'thingy' on the back, but DAG sent me that. Half-way through the first roll now.

My French is extremely rusty but I picked up Martine Franck anyway, which is fine since "I only look at the pictures, honest!"

Other purchases: a bunch of filters for my recent Nikon LTM obsession (those weird sizes and pitches are expensive), some Ilford fixer, an Ondu pano 35mm pinhole (might be a while before it gets made and delivered), and an Agfa Clack which is destined to be converted to a pinhole camera within days of arrival.

A couple of 35mm rolls of Kodak E100. Mostly doing my part to support them so they will roll out some 120, hopefully.

A motor drive and hand grip for my Leica R7 in excellent condition (I'll check when it arrives) for £31 on Ebay (plus postage from Italy). If it turns up as described I'll be pretty chuffed.

This morning I pressed the button on a black OM-1 with 50mm f/1.8 on Kijiji.

Then later in the morning I walked into a local antique shop and found ANOTHER black OM-1 with 50mm f/1.4, 28mm f/3.5 and an Olympus zoom and extension tubes and walked out with it.

Did not plan that.

Two boxes of J.Lane dry plates, one in 9x12cm and another in 4x5. That makes 20 plates. I hope they arrive before Easter holidays.

Bought an Iskra 2 from OK Vintage camera. Figured out the controls and loaded it up with a roll of Bergger Pancro 400. Just in time for "mud season" here in New Hampshire.

A mint Voigtlander 50/1.5 VM Nokton. Would have loved the chrome version but got a black one for A$675. Did the usual focus test with my Leica M-E on the tip of the wife noses. Spot on.
