Comic Strip:

Dilbert

Chocolate:

Chocolates by Debora Fleck. I'll put a link up as soon as she has a web site.

Bernard Callebaut Chocolaterie Ltd (403) 265-5777 - I used to like these, they are still OK, but since he has gone into massive volume, the quality just isn't what it used to be. Too bad. But I guess it makes him a lot of money.

I also like a lot of Swiss Chocolate. And certainly I stock up every time I'm in Switzerland - very good quality for low $$$

Camera:

Canon 30D. 20D is good too. 5D too, but I don't have one.

OmegaView 45 - a very flexible large view camera.

Film:

Only or my 45 camera: Fuji NPC, Fuji NPS, Kodak Portra family. And, for quick medium quality shots, you can't beat polaroid!

Batteries:

Lithium ION whenever possible. When not passible, I've been using the NiMH for yearsI won't ever ever go back to NiCAD of any type shape or form. I will NEVER buy a powertool that uses NiCAD f they don't use NiMH, they don't exist in my books anymore.  Update: I found an exception - the Ridgid brand of tools guarantees their batteries for 3 years - even if you use them commercially! They do it by having air channels that they blow air through while charging. Very interesting! They are outlasting even my AA NiMH's.

PowerTool:

Panel Saw

Auction house:

www.ebay.com  but no, I would NOT buy shares in it - they are over priced way too much last time I looked.

Store:

Home Depot Yippeee - they opened one only 6 miles south of me!

Plastics: Chinook Plastics (Vacuum forming) and Inventors Plastics  (Extrusion/Injection)
