imageI mean the fleurs, that is. I posted this pic on facebook and my friend Nedrick (I love that name, don’t you?) complimented me on my gardening skills [snort] and asked me to come and beautify his yard. Me and my Big Black Thumb. I had to tell the truth, which is that I encountered these beauties somewhere over on Westwood on my 0-Skunk-30 walk. I love the orange and purple.

<Danger Will Robinson!>Excuse me a moment. I am now OBSESSED with every teensy tinesy little scrap of anything that lands on my laptop. This barely visible scrap did not appear to contain any H2O but I wasn’t born with the capability of analyzing the individual molecules in any given dust mote by eye-balling it, so who knows whether there was H2O in it or not. I certainly don’t want Apple’s Water Sensors to detect it so I grabbed a dry kleenex to get it off my trackpad.</Danger Will Robinson!>

I’m not sure where I was trying to go with this after that little alert happened. Oh yeah, for one thing, the last time any of my photooos went to the cloud was Saturday. Not sure what’s going on there but had to Ninja today’s photoooo into place via a secondary device (iPhone in this case). I’m not asking for help on this issue. I *think* it has something to do with my MacBook repair although I was asked for my iCloud password umpteen billion times and entered it correctly umpteen billion times and can even access my iCloud account (or whatever it is) but I am not getting photooos there.

It’s pretty weird that I scored 100% on the most obtuse work quiz ever but can’t beat the iCloud into submission. This particular quiz was all about the security issues and technology surrounding software development architecture and programming and whatever. Even though I am in no way a developer and glossed through the “training” part of the lesson, I managed to grok enough of the lingo to ace the quiz. Always was a good test taker… Get photos out to the iCloud? Huh? Apple is user-friendly, roight?

    I find iCloud parameters mysterious, too. Write The Guru—he understand it, if you choose….

    That’s “understands”…

    How do you know that it’s in the cloud? Supposedly, all my iPhone pics are in there, but I have no idea how to check. Beautiful flowers or fleurs in French. 🙂

    My iCloud photos haven’t uploaded since June 7th and will NOT sync to my laptop. I’ve been fighting PhotoStream from the beginning of time. Love it when it works.
