Today’s Tech Note: Reset an A95 to defaults April 15, 2007 10:47 am

If you own a Canon A95 digital camera (an excellent choice!), and need to reset it to the factory default settings, hold the menu button down for 5 seconds.

If you are looking to buy a digital camera and need the best review do not waste time on sites like C|Net. Instead go to DPReview.com and read their reviews as well as use their side-by-side comparison feature.

They made me sleep! April 15, 2007 10:02 am

I woke at 5am this morning wanting to leap from bed and jumping into the enormity of responsibility that lay in wait for me today. I was frozen. The dog lay across my feet. And Evan was using my chest for a pillow. My muscles ached from yesterday’s races through the obstacle course and longed to stretch or have me move about; however, there is no better feeling than the love of wife, children and pets. I convinced myself that, if I moved from the bed, Evan was certain to squirm out of it to the floor, so for his protection, I slept in! Yeah.. that’s it..

Abstain from abstinence-only education. You be the judge.

With a slow creak, Molly lets herself back into the house but fails to close the door. Someone needs to train that dog!

Evan: "Uh oh." As he runs to the door, he exclaims, "Ess OP een" and closes the door for Molly. Evan feels capable and important.
