CONVERT 110 FILM TO DIGITAL (Troubleshooting)

Photo by Kellie Breen


We used the ION ‘Film to SD Plus’ to convert 110 film to digital.

One problem area encountered was converting 110 disposable camera film. The negatives are on a pinwheel.

A suggestion was to cut them off the wheel to get them into the ION slot.

But we found that the wheels would insert enough ( halfway) to get them processed.

We used compressed air spray to remove the lint (dust) from the read lens. This has to be done frequently.

Smoking Cessation

I’ve quit smoking successfully twice in my life.

Once for 20 years and the second time for now 3 years.

Hard to believe that I quit for 20 years and started up again but I did.

So that’s the history.

The purpose of this Blog is to help others to quit.

Understand that smoking is both a chemical and psychological addiction. You must deal with both addictions successfully to quit.

When I quit the first time I was smoking 3 packs of cigarettes per day. This was in 1984. My Health Insurance coverage made counseling free. So I got counselor and she taught me to change my smoking habits in a way that would make the psychological addiction less before I actually quit.

In those days you could smoke at work. So she taught me not to smoke at my desk but rather at the table behind it. This and other little tricks helped a lot when I actually did quit a few weeks later.

Get a counselor. They are free.

The second time I quit smoking it was easier. I remembered the tricks the counselor taught me and employed them.

But, the chemical addiction was not as bad because I had switched to make-your-own cigarettes. I bought the tobacco and tubes and using a machine made my own. This is legal in PA where I reside and much cheaper. At the time a pack of make-ur-own cost me 80 cents.

Factory made cigarettes are loaded with stuff that increases your addiction. Big Tobacco got into a lot of trouble over this.

Recently I read a good article on ‘Stop Smoking’ by Dr. Elizabeth Reid who writes a by-line for the Elks Club Magazine. In it she lists several websites that can be helpful:

.) cdc.gov/tobacco/quit_smoking/how_to_quit
.) lung.org/stop_smoking/how_to_quit
.) nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/quittingsmoking.html

Smoking causes various vitamin deficiencies — especially Vitamin C.

If you smoke be sure to take a good Multiple Vitamin.
The LABEL is informative.
