A Test

I am spending this week as a substitute nanny for my grandsons, and then hope to drive to Paducah and then on to Missouri for another week. So blogging may be a bit irregular for a while. As a computer I have brought along my new iPad, which I find has some real limitations.

One is the weird keyboard, with its only sometimes helpful autofill. Also I don't know how to upload photos or even if that is possible, and finally, Apple does not like Google apparently, so reading my regular blogs is a problem. It's frustrating to be away from the familiar, but new things have their joys too; and who can complain about having the latest cool tech gadget!

So this post is a test of how everything works. Thanks for the comments on the elephants. I'll see you when I can, and please don't think I'm ignoring you!

I agree that it's a little harder to read blogs on the ipad, but if you use google reader it works... the autofill is definitely a problem sometimes; it keeps changing things when I type in a web address and makes me crazy!

If you flickr, you can blog from there in "some" Apple products. (I have not been burdened with an iPad, so I can not speak to that product.)

My cell phone auto fills my text messages - I was trying to text while receiving a text & my husband got a message about a chicken that he could not decipher. After several other text messages, I finally called to tell him that it was an ERROR. (I had previously asked someone else if they would prefer chicken or beef, so the text though that I wanted to say chicken after "prefer.")
