I am Jeff McMahon. I teach college English, I'm married to a middle school English teacher, and we have a "rescue" dog, Gretchen, with special emotional needs, though I imagine we're now just as dependent on Gretchen as she is on us.
Interests: power yoga, combat conditioning, cars that possess the i've-got-to-have-it factor, vegetarian cooking, blissed-out naval-gazer and underground dream pop music, a few well-chiseled books. other website:

Steve, I've had the Eco-Zilla you mention since 2008 and it's a great watch. My model has a stiff band, which is not very comfortable. The newer band is less rigid but it's rubber so it's not comfortable for long wear. The SRP307 is more comfortable but the Eco-Zilla, solar powered, is easier to maintain. I have both.
Okay, I'll use it. I didn't with these. But it appears I should.

StarHalo, I may have to check it out. Thanks for the recommendation. Jeff
Thanks for the info, Gary and StarHalo. Perhaps I should take a class to maximize the camera's features and minimize my incompetence.
I'm still trying to figure out if I should use manual, automatic, or close-up setting. The shorter focal length was actually getting more out of focus, but I'll try again. I miss the simplicity of digital.

If I still want the MM300 in late October, then I'll assume it's more than a caprice.
Here's a link to using manual on the Canon T5i:
Ulysses, not bad but I'm not in love with them. Do you having any news, good or bad, about the Seiko SBDX00 MM300? It has captured my imagination during the last month or so.
D, you are correct. The 1973 model is the very similar RF-1060. The 1080 is from later. Jeff

Jack, I'm glad you like it. Mine gets a lot of wrist time as it's my "default" watch. Which bracelet did you get?
I hear you. I could see bringing 3. That would be my max for a one-week trip. I don't want to risk loss. I'd wear my Kinetic as my default and bring two autos in a good travel case, which I currently don't own.
Posting this lugubrious melody, I felt like part of me was a brave man and another part of me was a fool.
