weddings, Leonard Cohen, iphones and ipads and more
Many thanks for all the wonderful emails and comments - we both appreciate it very much. I am not a West Coaster but I have been priviledged to have married into a fabulous West Coast family - Jean and Frank (who was a coal miner) - my inlaws - were the most wonderful people and the coast is a special place to visit. The first time I went I did discover that they are different from the rest of New Zealand - they had the wrong idea of what a whole and half a loaf of bread was for starters..... at the moment they are hurting badly and things will be difficult for a long time.
I-pad/I-phone further dramas. Yesterday I went to the Apple store and bought a connection so I could load my camera into my new i-pad. First the camera chip would not go in and after a long hunt Ian found the cord. So far so good. Took a photo and successfully loaded it and thought I would test blogging and adding photo. Oh no - i-pad doesn't support blog writing unless it is in html and no photos can you upload. Hair pulling time. Ian went for a walk as he couldn't stand it. Lots of web searching later I discovered that I can blog and send photos from my i-phone (I could have been doing this all along...) so for this trip - i-phone comes for taking pics, writing blog, phoning and i-pad for receiving and sending emails and maybe reading a few of the books in my library - Winnie the Pooh, Alice in Wonderland, Sense and Sensibility and looks like Grant has loaded Plato and Issac Newton. Not so sure about that.
