Only in generalities with my family, and not at all with in-laws. My two sisters are comfortable and in no danger of having to eat cat food. One set of in-laws are complete idiots with money and...

I must have that gene too, wish my Mom had accepted that explanation. Back when I was little she was insistent that I WILL eat some brussel sprouts and I'm not leaving the table until I do. Finally I...

Yes, I hate this too. My default is to leave the speakers turned off, I don't want to hear it. If there is no text version, I leave the site. I'm not going to waste my time on their stupid video.

I checked four or more.

My favorite for family gatherings is a Nikon D7000 with the kit zoom lens by default and four SB-900 strobes for indoor use. I like the depth of field that f8 and 1/250 sec...
