Tues. January 2nd, 07

What a way to start the new year, I got on the bus early Saturday morning to leave the city and come home with my new camera clutched to my chest. I was feeling a little nauseas during the ride but as I hadn't bothered with breakfast before I left, put it down to that. Arriving home around 11:30 am, made a quick sandwich and could only manage to get down part of it. I was starting to feel rather miserable by this time but Roger wanted to see the camera so we sat on the sofa and he had a look at it. The batteries were dead and with the manual in tow, still couldn't figure out how they came out. By this time I was really feeling miserable and said I simply had to go to bed, where I've been since Saturday. Fever hovering around 102 degrees all days, body aching, chest sore from coughing, headache and very, very weak. Haven't had any thing to eat since Saturday, but have managed to get down some liquids. Now, would you believe, Roger has come down with it. So here we are both very weak and one trying to look after the other. I managed to get a doctor appointment for this morning, but Roger has to wait until tomorrow. I just hope I can get something for this horrible malaise and get it cleared up quickly. It's taking a lot out of me to write this but it's just to let you know that I haven't fallen off the face of the earth.

"We end our tour with a look at the bottom of the camera. Down here you'll find a plastic tripod mount and the battery compartment. As you can see, the S3 uses four AA-sized batteries. The plastic door covering the battery compartment is of average quality."

You have a point there Janine. We are feeling better as each day goes by, I'm almost back to normal though tire easily and Roger is not far behind me.
