Hello everyone,

I've finally decided to join instead of just lurking. Now I can ask all the questions I have, mostly about converting raw.

I'm a casino dealer, I deal crap (dice). I like my job, where else can you play cards all day and get paid? Hours are a little strange but you learn to adjust.

I'm new to digital but had an om1 and just converted. Figured it was time to come into the 21st century. I have and E1 14-54 and a grip.

What a nice combination. You will have a lot of fun with that set up. I look forward to seeing some of your pictures soon.

Welcome, from another former lurker, this time from the UK.
My take on all this is that the move from analogue to digital is in more ways than one...
I have lurked in quite a few forums, but never felt comfortable 'til I found this one.

I hope you're made to feel as welcome as I have.

Cheers
Andy

Hi and welcome. Is Sodus anywhere near Kalamazoo? I used to have a gal in Kalamazoo. (Seriously, I really did).

Hi Scaup

Ill be in Michigan near Flint next week, I grew up there.
Where would you suggest for birding, or do you know of a site that can give lists of sightings?

Thanks
Jim

Jim,

In the fall, sagniaw bay and shiwassie(sp) is full of migrating ducks and geese. This time of the yearI'm not sure. You may want to try Michigan.gov and get the dnr site that may help.

I used to take the Indian Trails bus to Kalamazoo and they used to stop in Benton Harbor.

We used to eat sometimes at Win Schulers in-- is it Stephensville? --Are they still there?
