Sitting out the cool weather.

I just kind of wasted today, as it was quite cool again.  The sun never came out, and the clouds seemed angry for most of the day.  Tonight it is 48 degrees as I type away on this post.

Long blue jeans and sweatshirts became the uniform of the day, and by about mid afternoon I gave up and started the oil filled electric heater here in the hearth room.  Its been several weeks since we had to use that fellow.

After Mike McFall suggested that I look into a new display for the Panasonic Lumix camera, I spent a while today trying to find a display for the model I have.  I have a ZS7, and I cannot find that display as a replacement part.  They seem to have the one for a ZS3, which is also a 3 inch 400,000 pixel display, but I've found no where to confirm that they are the same piece.  And at $40 a piece, I would hate to order the wrong one.

But I did find a you tube video that demonstrated how to take the display out of the camera and put the new one back in.  It was done in German, but that didn't matter because just watching the process is all it takes to get you over the hump of not knowing how to go about it.  Perhaps I will make some calls and see what I can find out.  Seems like a shame to not use a $300 camera.

At any rate I sat here and watched a way too long watch show on the TV tonight and didn't accomplish a thing. But tomorrow the car goes in for hail damage repair, and I go in for more medical treatments, so perhaps just enjoying the day is the right thing to do.  Oh, and the A/C repairman is scheduled in the afternoon too.

  1. Hope that screen is the right part, we love our Lumix and it has become our solid backup camera and also when I don't feel like carrying the Canon bigger body.Be safe out there, maybe some sun today and into the 60's. Sam & Donna...

  2. All the best for your medical appointment today, Rod, hope you get nothing but good news. Good luck on finding a replacement screen for your camera!
