BAD DAY FOR: Fondue-set makers, as Israeli wedding parties can now rent an ATM-like machine that lets credit-card-wielding guests charge their wedding gift at the reception. The machine, which spits out a receipt with the giver’s name and gift amount, costs about $155 to rent. “It’s very convenient,” said Aya Alon Kaufman of the Gan Oranim hall in Tel Aviv. “Guests can give a gift even if they forget their chequebooks.” (Reuters)
