At present the onward sale of the cine film is producing good revenue streams back and we have even met a chap who is using Scottish cine film in a PhD and looking to take all those we have. We have also made contact with yet another customer in Romania who has placed a large order which we'll send tracked at our own cost. As you know we send everything post free worldwide from our DVD range on the PMP shop on this site, this is because we like to share the hobby with others across the world. I can't understand why people insist on using the likes of Amazon which they get from me no more quickly and have to pay a post and packing charge as well. I detest Amazon and their treatment of workers and suppliers and am seriously considering letting our shop there go after Christmas, as I look at the gains through largely seasonal sales with them I ask is the pain worth it for a hobby.
It is good to have such a wide circle of friends worldwide and we enjoy visiting many countries each year, we are now a major archive source for emerging markets where poverty or law make film making difficult for those living in the countries in the past. The Brits have long been avid adventurers and remain so. The coverage of UK buses continues apace with York being the chosen location with a good forecast of light cloud on Tuesday this week. I might fit in a truck or bus trip locally on Wednesday if the weather is reasonable but thereafter we are off to Wales for a family wedding at the weekend although if Friday plays ball we could have time to film our way along the coast to Anglesey.
Our congratulations go out to those who are putting a lot of effort into charitable works at this time of year, the amount raised can be enormous but seldom comes without a lot of effort often from individuals or small groups of unsung heroes who in the real world seldom want or seek publicity unlike the TV or media inspired 'events'. Our own small contribution comes from being forced to consume wine and cheese on Thursday night and sing carols, it's a hard life raising money folks! What on earth can I give you tonight I suppose Romania wouldn't be a bad subject which fits in with some of tonights themes.
