The scene is Christmas Day 2010. I used this picture for my Christmas card this past year and got so many complements on it. That's Lucy, my 13-year-old puppy looking on. I think she was looking for Santa.
When using your laptop computer at home, put the battery charger (an AC adapter) on a power strip that can be turned off. The transformer in the charger draws power continuously, even when the laptop is not plugged in.
