Lisette Model – The passionate street photographer who taught Diane Arbus

Did you do anything about it once you knew for certain the terminal health issues associated with being overweight or obese?

UPDATE 2 – Epson SC P800 Printer

The printer has good days and bad days. On the good days, it’s absolutely fine with no error messages such as remove the non-existent paper or (non-existent) roll paper detected open the rear door.
