    The newer Basil Brush (The Basil Brush Show) ran from 2002 to 2007. Unfortunately there aren't many clips from the original 1970 show on YouTube.

    I think the favourite part of the DVD I bought was seeing the Sherwood Forest sketch with John Inman in it.

    I think I got even more laughs from the Sooty DVD.

    Most of the patio furniture finally arrived. Still waiting on one chair but it's pretty sweet even the way it is. I'm outside right now. :)

    What a nice place you have there! (and the furniture looks very good in it!).

    All the major food groups in one photo. Be careful mixing grain & grape though... :p

    I approve. Very nice. :cool:



    Chose some fabrics for a few new shirts. 2 button-down collar shirts to be worn open-collar: a plain blue oxford which should be useful year-round, and a navy check which should be great with any pale coloured outfit. And a couple of spread collar shirts for generally worn with ties: a pale lilac bengal stripe and a solid blue end-on-end, both of which should be good with a range of different ensembles.

    I'm following the German wisdom: "Bier auf Wein, lass dass sein -Wein auf Bier rat' ich dir!" which does warn you about mixing -but also teaches you in what order mixing might not be such a terrible idea ;)

    Video editing and 3D rendering specifically...

    when video editing, Premier Pro can burn upto 8gb easily just for a soft render, hitting upto 10gb if it's allowed during a full render... add in 3D rendered components on top of that for a run through, and it could easily hit 16gb needed...

    Thanks! It's an apartment so it's not really private, but I think they've done a good job in trying to make it private. Can't wait till my husband gets back and we can sit out in the evening with a glass of wine.

    Four different types of medicine to deal with the cold I've had for two weeks. Yuck. :(

    I had other shopping plans today but I was too worn out after the first dose to do anything but sleep.

    Sweet. I can't wait until I can afford a better lens.

    The Seeker, I wish I'd bought the full frame 5D Mark II instead from the beginning, then I would have been able to switch to the monster lenses eventually when I'm ready. As it is, there's not much point, as my model won't be able to make full use of lenses like that. No way I can a afford a new body AND a new lense, too right now... ah well, one can continue dreaming and drooling. :sigh: :D

    I really wanted the 5D but at the moment it's really out of my price range.

    the 5D mark II is a damn hot camera... absolutely love mine, though i will admit, i find myself using the 7D more and more lately...

    while the 5D has the advantage of the full frame sensor, the 7D is a much faster camera to work with... it had advantages across the board, from a 19 point AF system, faster frame rate, faster lenses, faster focusing, better movie control... all in all, i actually prefer using the 7D for every day photos and work...

    the 5D's full frame sensor is the only thing that really makes it stand out against the 7D... without that, it's simply a reasonable camera but pretty slow with most things... For example, even taking the F-stop down as low as you can, you're still not going to be able to accurately capture 'freeze frame' moments for action or movement, the full frame sensor just doesn't work like that... it's absolutely fantastic for portrait or landscape shots, but any hint of movement in the frame and your entire focus system and shot goes out the window altogether...

    All in all, i'd highly recommend the 5D for portrait and still life shots, the full frame sensor is above and beyond the rest when it comes to that style of photography...

    But if you're looking to capture sports, movement or anything where focus and lens speed are important to you, then go with the 7D

    I mean, if you want to meet all your needs, you'll decide the 600D is nice and light, and the 7D for this, the 5D for that, then there are the differing lenses and attachments... it just doesn't stop does it?! A real enthusiast is going to be milked to within an inch of their life... :p

    When will they invent a camera that does everything well and isn't the size of a kitchen sink and twice as heavy? No one will ever buy anything again then, and that won't do, will it... :D
