I hate when the iCloud takes its own d*mn sweet time moving photooos from my iPhone to my MacBook Pro

hollandaiseI mean, both the phone and the laptop are on wi-fi and everything else is humming along but I took a pitcher of a packet of Hollandaise sauce mix a half hour or so ago and it is not showing up in iPhoto yet… Oh, there it is. It turns out that if you take a photoooo by “swiping up” the camera and don’t actually open your phone, your photoooos don’t get sent over. Am I supposed to know this kind of thing?

So, whyyyyy did I post this loverly Hollandaise sauce packet today? Well. Before Thanksgiving… 1) I KNEW I had umpteen packets of this stuff around The Landfill. 2) I COULD NOT FIND THEM!!!! 3) I bought two NEW packets. 4) I used one of those to make Thanksgiving Breakfast. 5) I FOUND SIX PACKETS! In a cupboard I hadn’t thought to look in… … …

I think that next year we are gonna have to eat Eggs Benny more than the approximately three times we normally eat Eggs Benny per year. Lemme see… That would be Thanksgiving morning, Christmas morning, New Years morning (depending upon where we are), and sometimes Easter morning. Easter is a mixed bag around here. We both grew up in Christian religions (Catholic & mainstream Methodist) and we observe / celebrate Christmas but Easter is usually more or less a regular Sunday for us now that we don’t have beach urchins to provide egg hunts and Easter Baskets and a few presents and candy up the wazoo for. I remember one morning quite a few years ago that it was HOT here on Easter and we schlepped kayaks down into the Huron River. Our breakfast that day was a baggy of Cheerios and a mini-can of V8 juice. More often than not, Easter is a cold snowy [or just plain yucky] day around here and Eggs Benny is appropriate.

Anyway, I have a lot of these Hollandaise sauce packets to get rid of. One of my nine regulars has requested two of them. I just hope I remember to stash them in my Maple Leaf Backpack the next time we end up down at the Oscar Tango. Other than that, I think that Canadian Bacon will be on my grokkery list more often throughout the next year because we will be eating Eggs Benny a bit more often.

P. S. KW, please remember to schlep your Edmund Fitz mug home from work and run it through the dishwasher.

    Obviously, when(if?) I get an iPhone, my learning curve will be enormous because I had no idea what you were talking about. I did comprehend the part about “losing” things in a cupboard you forgot to check; I do that ALL THE TIME. 🙂

    Wow, I just learned something! I have wondered why in the H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks Photo Stream SOMETIMES works and OFTEN DOESN’T. I love that feature, but it has been baffling and beyond frustrating to not be able to count on it. How in the world did you ever figure out that reason?

    Love Knorr products. Their Bearnaise sauce is excellent, too!
