  1. Re: Too late, too expensive for this year, but maybe the next? Little Italy and Autum

    Lobster is best enjoyed on the coast of Maine or eastern Canada. I would not buy Sams club lobster either, it might not even be lobster.

    Re: Pouring without spilling?

    If the other container is empty, tip it nearly level and rotate the two containers vertically slowly so it pours smoothly. Sorta like you have to do with gas cans.

    The clearance/closeout 4x5 is the same price as B&H normal price.

    Interesting that B&H calls their 620 format tmy2 a #1 seller.

    Re: Problem with Pyrocat HD from PF

    HDC is one ingredient easier than HD if you wish to mix it yourself.

    Standard safety disclaimers apply for some of the chemicals when dry.... I mix it outdoors to avoid the powder in my darkroom.
