Currently I am looking after my 2 youngest grandchildren.
I picked it up on my iPad Email, copied the txt and pasted it in Notes.
You know, the camera, plus charger, plus chord to connect to computer for downloading.
There’s also the ipad charger which is a multi-tasker and charges the phone as well.
When I first started my blogs, It was all about food, (really still is, but I must sing the praises of this Gadget, The iPad)…Anyway I filled copious notepads and diaries,
writing on the Notes App, about the programmes, I have recorded on My Sky.
Then I email them to myself. Voila there they are, already typed and ready to go on my Mac.
Must just drop in here, how fabulous My Sky is.
I used to religiously tape, every cooking programme I fancied.
Watch it, replay, make notes, wipe, ready for the next nights viewing, then cook.
Blog that recipe and start all over again.
At the beginning, Chefs were rather precious about their recipes but slowly most of the Food Networks have great Web pages, with almost anything you want to make.
I can go online, find a recipe from a Chef who has inspired me... and I want to trial...copy and paste it into Notes (which is synched into my iPhone)
Using my Shop Shop List (which is also synched to my iPhone)
Compile the ingredients onto Shop Shop
To cook, place iPad on bench.
Open up my recipe and away we go.
Cook away. Make any notes
Email finished product to my Mac
Download pictures from the trusty camera
And I'm ready to go with a new blog.
Get rid of all that paper.
AND on the Notes App, each page is dated and there is an index making it easy to find everything.
So onto more delights.
I have loads of book Tucked Away in my Kindle.
There also TV shows, Movies right from iTunes.
And to keep me up to date Wunder Radio
Our friend Stu hosts a show on Eastside FM radio in Sydney on a Thursday
I can tune into him while I am cooking, cleaning or blogging.
Even listed to Mark Kennedy on 2UE on his midnight to dawn shift a few weeks ago.
solitaire in 3 variations
Read the paper.
All of this before I get out of bed.
Oh and I forgot my granddaughter Mia showed an excellent app called Relax and Rest
Another excellent App is My Net Diary.
Also synched to the iPhone and the Mac
I have just quietly dropped about 5 kilos over 6 weeks.
No stress…even room for a wine or 3
So the list goes on.
Oh how about the Maps and GPS
Thanks to the Taymacs who lent this to me, and Then, gifted it to me...you have changed my life.
I will never be bored in retirement.
All I need is for my iPad to do my exercise for me and my life is close to perfect.
