• Digital cameras that will accept SLR long lens?

    I have two good SLR 35mm cameras that appear to have been made obsolete by the newer digital cameras. Along with my cameras, I have two long lens. Is there a reasonably priced digital camera that will accept the fittings on my long lens so I can take long shots without having to get an expensive digital camera that does have that capability?

While I will probably enroll in Part A why should I enroll in Part B at this time? Someone has indicated potential "penalties" if I don't take Part B now but why should I pay BCBS and also for Part B if BCBS is obligated to provide much the same Part B coverage as does Medicare? Please don't suggest the www.medicare.gov website. It just does not provide the information I need.

  • ANSI Standard, Safety Harness?

    Need to know ANSI standard on service life of fall protection safety harnesses. Have heard that they should be replaced every five years, irrespective of their condition. If someone knows the standard, would appreciate the wording they use. These are harnesses, not safety belts. Thanks.

    If a 75R/17" tire is changed out to a 70R/17" tire, what will be the effects on the speedometer? Aside from the less than one centimeter drop in height, it makes sense that the 70 will roll over faster, thus increasing speedometer. Is this correct?

    I have been deluged by Eden Pure and several other companies, plus I see in Parade and US Weekly Sunday inserts the ads for the quartz infrared heating units. They are portable, "run on less than a Mr. Coffee" a day, etc. Right now the adds seem to be for the same product, just packaged differently. They all rely on convection, infrared bulbs, and some copper concoction that retains heat. They seem to come in two sizes, one will heat 300 sq' and the other 1000 sq'. Anybody out there using one and if so, are they worth the cost, which is 300-400 dollars? Are they efficient and work as well as the maker claims? Opinions would be appreciated.

    Due to obvious confusion on the part of several respondents, I will rephrase and provide additional information to my original question. I am looking for a website of manufacturers of small motorcycles that can be disassembled and placed into a large carrying bag. They are typically about 80cc and only slightly larger than a Moped. They are considered portable and usually used as a recreational vehicle for campers who haul them along to the campsite. Some are street legal, just as Mopeds might be. These are used widely in Great Britain and Asia as fuel efficient transport for short distances. Their top end is about 40mph with an average sized person on them. I don't want to try to obtain one all the way from Europe, so I am asking if anyone knows of a USA distributor. They "fold" at the frame junction just in front of the engine, and they have a carry bag made especially for them. When folded, they are about the size of a folded up wheelchair. They are not pocket rockets or minicycles. I am told they weigh under a hundred pounds. In England, they go for about $1,400 or so if my monetary conversion is correct. Maybe this further explanation will help to locate the product. Any help locating something like this in the US would be appreciated. I saw one at a rest stop, attached to the back of an RV, but the owners were obviously resting and I didn't want to disturb them.
