While the Ericsson phones were feature-packed and very desirable, the settings were a nightmare to customise if you were doing it on the fly without the benefit of an instruction manual. My first mobile phone was one I bought outright on special for $50, a Motorola MicroTAC analogue device like this pic but without the flip cover. I bought a NiMH battery for it that was over an inch thick, it could run for about ten days on that one!

I have set up my 10Cloud (NextCloud) usage to include a backup of existing web receipts and to sync my current Web Receipts folder. This means I can save receipts to the iCloud Drive with iOS devices, then open the NetCloud app and upload from iCloud Drive into the Web Receipts folder, which then syncs to the same folder on the MacBook Pro whenever it’s connected.

Perversely, for one who was raised on a market garden, growing commercial quantities of vegetables, the only form of cucumber my father could stand was the sliced & pickled ones from a can.

“There isn't even a shared space where people could go to use basic power tools or just shoot the breeze while fixing a broken toaster or making a spice rack for the kitchen.”

In Oz, that lack is partially rectified by the Men’s Shed movement, initially set up to provide recently retired men with somewhere to meet & do their own thing without female interference.

Picked up a hitch-hiker. Seemed like a nice guy. After a few miles, he asked me if I wasn't afraid that he might be a serial killer? I told him that the odds of two serial killers being in the same car were extremely unlikely.

At a family reunion 9 years ago, a cousin whose son was in a Victorian-based swimming comp in Wangaratta asked my youngest brother if he knew anything of an up & coming junior part-Aboriginal girl called Annie P, who was blitzing the comp in not only her age group but the next two as well.

Our cousin said she knew the prodigy lived somewhere in Gippsland, as did my brother. He said, "Perhaps you should ask the girl's aunt." Turning to his wife he said "Kris, tell them about your niece, Annie."

It's truly a small world.

How odd. Sometimes my prints aren't recognised, if the finger is dirty or damp, usually. Skin damage from cuts & burns can change things, too. Touch ID for me is only on the iPhone SE & 5th gen iPad Mini .
