It's my sinuses, and though I've tried strong decongestants, they've helped only marginally. Most definitely, it's the air pressure. I've flown just in 727's, but the pain was severe enough that I'm unwilling to fly ever again in anything. Trains really are nice. Someday, I'd like to take the one that goes across Canada, hopping off now and then with my camera.

I have flown 757's and 747's (I think) without too much trouble, but the smaller ones are bad. You might consider them. But I don't blame you. I try flying every 5-10 years and usually regret it. The trips are fun, but the travel makes me thing twice.

I agree, taking a train across Canada does sound like fun. Have to wait for my retirement, though.

eric, your how to tell black bear scat from Grizzly was a hoot. On a personal note if I never see another bear it will be too soon. As a teenager I got 58 stitches on my forehead from a close encounter...when friends tell me they've seen a bear I tell them I'm happy for them but happier for me...I wasn't there. :P

Anybody have any air pressure ear ache suggestions? I'm going to be flying across the country in 2 weeks. :?

Usually it's good enough to chew gum or a similar squishy candy. Make sure you are rude and keep your mouth open while you do it. That can help equalize the pressure in your ears.

I prefer mentos myself.

Now that I finally have an avatar to be behind, I'm 54 years old and for the last 12 years have been a Massage Therapist in 2 Chiropractic offices, specializing in deep tissue injury work. Before that I raised, trained and showed horses. When my orthopedist told me I needed to get into something safer like dirt bike racing I made the occupation change. I still have my own horses and love distance riding. 2yrs ago on my first 25 mile race I came in third and the 'Man from Snowy River' is my hero. I love extreme riding.

After rereading the above I realized that even though I made an occupation change I didn't take the Orthos advice...sigh. Just too hard headed I guess.

I've been out of photography for 20 years and 2003 was my introduction to technology (I'd been holding out hoping computers were a passing fad...remember what radio people said about TV) and got my first computer and digital camera. It's been downhill ever since...kind of like my riding. Obsessive /Compulsive about Photography, my horses and riding.

Probably a number of different sorts, but the photos he sent me were of a family of red fox.
Now I'm betting those had to be some great photos. I've never seen a red fox...only arctic fox.
One made it's way near our home and stopped to eat a few stray kitty kibbles by our basement door.
I was stupefied as to how such a fox wound up on my island and then we learned that they were partially domesticated or so they was supposed to be.
A pet store here had 2 and they managed to escape.

Shy wild animals in your area...and you never have any problems with any foraging around in your garbage cans?

Photographing them requires huge patience and luck--plus a long lens (which no one bought me for Christmas. )
Did you forget to circle the lens of choice with a bright red marker within your photo equipment catalog and plant them in highly visable areas? :lol:

Racoons only, and we finally built a latched shed so they'll go shopping at the neighbors instead.

This is a mistake I'll not make again. :evil:

Okay, thought to place a few photos in It seems that these days, I'm always running far behind. Running? Well, okay...truth be told, I'm a dawdler and perhaps that's my problem :lol:

Here is a photo of my daughters, soft focus...most be a d.o.f. issue. This was taken shortly after I got my camera:

(to the above photo, while I love the natural lighting cast from a sun setting...doesn't do teeth justice :lol: )

I love black &amp; white

Our wedding day. This was taken with a film slr and scanned in using a "run-of-the-mill" scanner. The original, of course, is much better.

Kanji,

Comparing your avatar photo to the one you've posted...you look much more "approachable" in your posted picture. Your wife must bring out your softer side

Nice, warm photo there Kanji.
