    I have a pair of Zeiss binoculars that I bought in Soviet controlled East Berlin in the 1980s for $20US. An American dollar paid under the table was worth many East Marks.

    Have you been back to East Berlin since? The transformation since 2001 has been incredible.

    I have not. I can imagine that it has changed dramatically since it was a pretty glum place when we were there.

    Paul the next time you get new glasses get Transition XTRActive instead of regular Transition.
    XTRActive will darken in a car or behind a UV faceshield.
    I switched to XTRActive earlier this week and they work good in the car.
    I was told the XTRActive would not get perfectly clear inside like Transition but I can not see a difference between the two when setting both side by side.

    Since I wear prescription lenses the sunglass frames I prefer, Costas, no longer have the supplied non prescription Costa lenses. Instead of Costa the lab my optometrist uses inserts lenses of unknown manufacturer except they are the best that $600 or so can buy. I don't ask the brand but it helps that my optometrist for the last 30 years is my brother so the $600 is retail, not my cost. And yes to polarization for the last 30 years though the advent of drop down sun visors has pretty much eliminated my need for sunglasses when riding. I wear clear prescription lenses when riding.
