No posts for two and half weeks? That’s not the way to keep readers coming back for more! I’ve been somewhat uninspired for the past couple of weeks, although there is plenty to talk about.

The Book Club seems to be taking on a life of it’s own, and we might actually start reading a real, live book here soon. The most recent poll actually has – get ready for it – books to choose from! So go vote if you’re in the club. And if you’re not in the club, feel free to pop on over and join.

In other news, I’m going to be out and about this weekend camera shopping. Any suggestions from people who love (or hate) their digital camera? I’m not buying an SLR (yet), so we’re just talking normal point-and-click right now. Or maybe just a little more advanced.

Also, today is my Mom’s birthday. Happy birthday, Mom!

    I have the Canon Elph as well, but it’s the SD100 (3.2Mp). Like Heather said, it’s a great camera. Very compact, very rugged, and super-easy to use.

    My other camera is the Sony DVD403 HandyCam. Higher Mp, 16:9 digital video and stills, burns to mini-DVD and DVD-RW, much better lenses (telephoto & wide angle) and picture quality. Pat, you used it during my luncheon, remember? …I *really* love the DVD403 HandyCam, but it’s not as compact as the Elph.

    Anyhoo… blog more! (like I should talk, I disappeared until yesterday). Happy St. Patrick’s Day and Happy Saintly Mother’s B-Day!

    I have the Canon Elph SD400. I love it. I’m sure there are more updated versions of it since I bought it last september. It takes really good pictures and it’s compact so you can take it anywhere with you!!

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!! 🙂

    I love my Casio EX-750. It’s pretty small, for being so feature-packed. Most importantly, though, it has almost NO shutter lag, and a 5-sec movie buffer, so you can take video of things after they happen. Both are great features for recording kids and pets…which I know are your main goals…

    There’s also the Fuji Finepix (sp?) … they take wonderful pictures, but I’ve never actually used one.

    Also, look online at http://www.photo.net for great reviews on lots of different cameras.

    I also have the Cannon Elph (4MP). The camera rocks. My friend Bryan bought the 5MP version for his sister and it looked really nice… slimmer than mine and a larger preview screen in the back.
