I enjoy work. Like the narrator of "Three Men in a Boat," I can sit and watch it for hours. Whenever I have something that needs to be done, I work hard to find a way to put it off

Picking a Point-and-Shoot Camera: Panasonic DMC-FX7

My wife Daphne likes to look at snapshots and I don't like to take them, so 25 years ago I bought her a camera. She could never get decent pictures out of the thing, so I bought her another - and another and another and another
