Like the title says, I have a Logitech Harmony 1100 remote for $225 and a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ40 for $325. Both are brand new in retail boxes, full warranties, etc. The Harmony box has not even been opened. The Lumix was taken out of the box, lens cap put on, and then put right back into the box. Prices include shipping. Logitech Harmony 1100 Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ40

In fact, the most informative articles I've seen recommended the practice. The caveat seemed to be breaking buttons IIRC. I know many only...
At 40 I see little correlation between linear age and what is appropriate attire, outside of trends like Ed Hardy, graphic Ts, "skinny jeans", etc. What seems more important to me is the image I want to present at a particular time. What are the circumstances? What is my mood? In a couple of days I'll be closer to 50 than I am to 40 and the diamond stud that I put in my ear 29 years ago is still there. Don't like it? Think it's passe? Think I'm trying too hard to be...
Color is cordovan (burgundy) but the leather is not "shell cordovan". Worn cordovan has "smooth" wrinkles without the fine lines (that these shoes have).
