Re: HOUSEHOLD TIPS NOT FOUND IN WOMAN'S WEEKLY

I used to formulate and manufacture these liquids and I can assure you there is a lot of difference between the best and worse. People generally over-use these products, one squirt is all you need - but how much is a squirt? I'm guessing that Tripp's quick trial fell into that category, but some hom...

Re: Photography Nuts & Bolts

You're welcome. With a high priced item it is better to purchase from a reputable supplier. There are a lot of fakes in China that are good enough to deceive most people.

Re: Photography Nuts & Bolts

I'm here! Kev, lenses are available here. If you give me full details I'll have a look on Taobao (like Amazon) and Baopals. A quick look showed hundreds of options, some at mega-bucks. If you give me specific lens model numbers I'll see how much they are and we can take it from there.

It was the shape that gave me the idea but it was just a guess. I don't think I've ever seen one, and certainly never owned one.
