Photo Diet day 5

Day 5 of my "photo diet" and I'm already slipping. I had no appetite this morning. I only had my usual black tea with cream and sugar, and a piece of 12 grain toast with jam only. (at least I've cut out the margarine!) I have a sore throat. I'm getting sick with something and I hope it isn't bronchitis! I guess all this good eating disagrees with me, and my body already misses all the junk food and lovely little snacks that I would daily give to it!
My little Nikon camera up and died. It was only 2 years old. The lens is stuck in the out position. I called the camera dept at London Drugs and it would cost, get this, $65 just to have someone at Nikon look at it! I nearly fell off my chair when I heard this. Plus s/h of $20. So that would be a huge total of $85 before the camera was even fixed.
You can buy a new Nikon for $130.
I don't understand why people yap on and on about Mother Earth, and taking care of the planet, and "going green" and becoming environmentally conscious, when it's less expensive to throw away cameras that break instead of getting them fixed.
Do you?

Sorry you're not feeling well. That's a bummer that your camera died. Once you start using it, especially for your blog, it's hard to be without it for awhile.
