Yes, 3 is horrid, one would have been horrid.

One of my most favorites died on Monday, I've been taking care of him since his first stroke 8 years ago. He will be greatly missed. He taught me patience with cranky old curmudgeons. He really hated female caregivers and was not nice about it, but his spirit was strong. This time around, we all knew it was his last, he was too nice to everyone, even his kids noticed the personality change.

Thanks, Sweetie, but not so much today, I kinda sneezed a lot. Tried to cover and redirect! Everyone is sick. I was impressed with my ability to remain upright, however.

Just got home from the Medical Lab. Today was my blood tests for my Jan 10th Doctors appointment. I'll see on the 10th how good or bad I've been in the last 4 months.

Just got back from looking at camera's. Mine quit working over the holidays. My goodness there are so many, I just want an everyday kind (if there is such a thing). Some I looked at were price from $79 to $120. The brands were Nikon, Sanyo, Kodak and Sony. Any ideas for me?

I've had a couple of Sony digital cameras. They are both still in use. They take great pics. You will also do well with Nikon, Canon, Olympus. I don't know much about Kodak or Sanyo Cameras.

Both the cheaper ones and the more expensive ones will take great pics. The costlier ones offer extra features. You have to decide which extra features are important to you.

Sony, for one, changes models a lot so you may be able to pick up a recently replaced model for cheap money.

Thanks so much for your advice Andy. I can't get over how small camera's are now days, they look like a cell phone.

You'll find that most of the new cameras don't have a viewfinder you press your eye up to. You have to frame the picture looking at the display on the back. Look for a camera with a big bright display.

Andy, that is a good thing, I always have trouble looking through the small viewfinder.
