Title: April 1 reminder
Post by: Doug Peterson on April 01, 2019, 09:29:13 am
Especially for those outside the USA where I understand fewer people "celebrate" April Fools Day (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/April_Fools%27_Day), here is your reminder to read any usual rumors or news posted today with an elevated level of skepticism.

In real news though, my wife and I are expecting a baby girl in mid May. Any and all parenting advice welcome.

Congrats!  You will soon learn that young children can frustrate even the best autofocus systems and fastest shutters.  Its never going to be easy to get the shot.  Though it will be fun.

Well, if you are one who wants to snap a lot of baby snaps, never forget to make sure that Mama also looks good in them. She will not let you forget if you blow that aspect; especially in years to come will it annoy her...

I was going to add a smiley, but it's no laughing matter.

I almost bought a huge load of Portra 800 because there were fake news about it being discounted.  ::)

In Spain the equivalent to 1st April is December 28th.
