I think you put that smiley on backwards, if the red you are referring to is wine.

Indeed a red wine. Else my darling Mrs K10D will see red.

Aha, so it's a peace-offering red (which it can often be, anyways).

Just enjoyed a reasonable red with some duck. At home .

Sounds very much familiar - I live in the Périgord (Dordogne) - duck and red!

Love the Périgord and it's food. Passed through again last September. Had a great few weeks there a few years ago, and it calls us back.

I'm a bit speechless... I've just won a copy of the new dSLR (when it comes out) in the US Fora's Grand Raffle. I can safely say that this is the first time I have won something in a raffle that is really worth having.

Yay! K.

Exceptional win, Kris! I’m sure you’ll absolutely squeeze the most out of it!

Definitely not pointless but this seemed the best thread to mention it in. Yes, very chuffed. Selfie might have to wait a few months until it is released!

I was just feeling pleased that my "rooty fisheye" image was doing well in the photo competition. Nice to see a monochrome film image standing-up well.

Thanks all. Now back to work...

Funnily enough, my wife said the exact same thing...

Nevermind not needing to work - if Kris wins the lottery (maybe try the Euromillions which seems to go to the UK an awful lot) he can buy each of us a new model Pentax

Euromillions would be nice. I could finally get that A*1200 I really don't need...

0%. That is what my bank informs me I will earn on my savings.

Still could be worse. If I had the odd €25million in my account I would be paying them for the privilege.
