"Well I guy has to have some fun. Anyone want to send me a wide screen TV?"

I don't have a wide screen to send but I am interested as to what the television choices are up there. Do you have satellite?

I hope it's not like my early days of television with 2 or 3 channels and an antenna. I remember CBC signing off after the news with Larry Henderson.

Regards

bluenose, yes we have satellite but it usually goes out during storms because of the very low antenna angle (horizontal).

John, that is if I had any WR lenses, which I don't. And even WR probably won't like 90km/h gusts and -26C windchill.

X-Box it is then.

A great way to spend your time. I like both the 1st and 2nd, I'm always partial to shots with small dof and a definite subject like that.

That does sound like a bit much for WR. Sounds a bit much for me to venture out as well.

We have satellite TV also and it works most of the time. Our snow is usually heavy, wet stuff so our problem is that we periodically have to go out and wipe it off - signals can't get through an antenna completely coated with snow.

Well, you're in luck Ira.
they make a nice camera glove, for most DSLR's and they even have pockets in them that hold warming packets that not only keep the camera warm, it also keeps your hands warm.

Can't even think what a storm must look/feel like where you are, but can easily understand why anyone would stay in with you description.

Really like that xbox controller + car shot.
