This is Arthur, husband of my mum's cousin, Barbara. They've been our hosts of for a couple of days in Rhinebeck, NY. This is the man who is probably responsible for my healthy cynicism of tecnology. He told me, many years ago, in his unique welsh/american accent, that a digital watch was "just a gimmick". I'd not even heard that word before, but he was right, and I've never owned one since.
