For months I have been flummoxed as to why my Apple contacts have not been syncing successfully. If I saved a contact John Doe on my iPhone and then received a text from him on my iPad, I would not see his name, just his phone number. The culprit I discovered is the “default Contacts List” on my iPhone, which was not “iCloud” but another list. Since I had never heard of this default list I doubt that I selected it as my default in the Contacts’ app settings. Therefore, no syncing occurred for the contacts I have been saving for months. Even worse, there doesn’t seem to be an easy way to move a contact from one list to another? Why not, Apple? Why not?

My left knee started acting up yesterday, so no exercise occurred. Bummer.

Florida situation is changing again, I suppose more of my life will be spent putting out fires caused by my mother.

Would have started Wordle with ANGRY today because that is how I feel. However, I recalled that ANGRY was already a Wordle solution. I also considered celebrating Barb’s two nights of pizza by starting with CRUST, but it suffered the same problem.

I solved today’s Wordle in four attempts; my starter today was CHASM

    Wordle in 3 starting with PRIDE.

  2. Steve says:

    I had the last 3 in 2 guesses, it it took 2 more.

    We are no longer packing for New Zealand, as the voters have spoken. Sadly, it was much closer than it should have been (and really shouldn’t have gone to a runoff).

    40 minutes hard on the trainer felt good and I should have kept going.

    I woke myself up coughing through the night and was going to phone today in, but remembered I have a tech coming on site for a repair and I was the only person available as my brother Sam in in Nashville. So in I am.


    • Yeah. Seems as if most of the voters staid their course. I am still wondering if Georgia is where I belong.

      I was so bummed my knee was bothering me yesterday as I really wanted to mount th trainer for some exercise.

  3. Made a Publix run, got Whammed! in the process. Eggs are over $6 a dozen? Holy shit, is it cheaper to have chickens?

    I’ve noticed that about contacts on my iPad sometimes being just a phone# -but mine is iCloud? I’ll never figure it out

  5. Barb says:

    We went to bed hoping Warnock would pull off the win – damn it was close. I know it wasn’t a vote for Hershel, but a vote against the democrats by quite a few people. It does scare me how much people are 100% against the other party – no matter what.

    Day 2 at Pizzeria Lucca – no Christmas music, I was really hoping everyone at our table would get Whammed! (so we wouldn’t be alone)

    Allan is back at work today, I may finally get to just lay low tonight, I’ve got this head thing going on, a slight cough, a slight sore throat, one of my ears feels not right.

    • Agreed on the politics, but voting for someone who is clearly unqualified (obviously not the first time this has happened) makes no sense to me.

      Hope you feel better soon.

    • Steve says:

      My cough had me looking at RSV symptoms… “dry cough” check! No many of the others. (runny nose, slight fever, headache). The only place I’ve been around people is here in the office, but Debbie has been out and about!

  6. Going to make dinner in my InstantPot tonight. What is this, 2020?

    What am I making? This InstantPot Dump and Go Meatball Lasagna where I substitute Italian sausage for the meatballs since Publix had no vegetarian meatballs today.

    • David says:

      I look forward to hearing out it turns out. I only use my Instapot for making hard boiled eggs.

      • Barb says:

        I bought a little hard boiled egg maker – Allan laughs that I bought it – but its small. I know I’d never use an Instant POt enough to take up the space in my cabinets.

        • David says:

          Alton Brown schooled me on “uni-taskers” in his TV show back in the day, so I don’t normally have special purpose tools. It’s worth it to me to have something for hard boiled eggs though. I bought the Instapot because Paulie was making all kinds of marvelous creations from his but I just never wrapped my head around using it that way.

          • I’m with you on Alton Brown (who is the authors of one of the books I picked up today) and Uni-taskers. However, I don’t feel InstantPots and Air Fryers are not uni-taskers which is why I caved and bought each.

    We went to Wrecking Bar for Date Night last night and ended up sitting next to another couple from EAV we are friends with. Apparently they go to Wrecking Bar every Tuesday. It was pleasant, but this introvert doesn’t want to talk to anybody.

    SO goddamned relieved about the election result. What a shitshow.

  8. Jenka says:

    I have not been Whammed yet and am therefore superior.

    • Steve says:

      I haven’t been anywhere to get Whammed, so…

    • Stacy Fox says:

      Stupid hootie Today Show came back from commercial on 12/2 playing that blasted song. I now watch GMA instead. 😉

      • Steve says:

        And people all over the country swear at their TV’s!!

        Letters to the editor are in order.

      • Barb says:

        GMA might get ya too…….. you just never know.
        I do not listen to Christmas music stations, so the only time I can get Whammed is at a restaurant or another store shopping.
        Oh well -its still fun, I will see if we can make it the rest of the season without hearing it again.

      • David says:

        Hey there, stranger! 🙂

      • Barb says:

        an- Stacy Fox???? What are you doing here? Good to “see” you!!!

      • Jenka says:

        The only live TV I watch are sports, and usually on mute. Like Barb, the only way I would get Whammed is in a store or restaurant.

      • Hey there stranger!

        The only tv I watch is streamed, live sports, or on dvr at Barb’s.

        I thought that I would be safe until I realized what I was hearing as I pushed my cart looking for the ricotta cheese…

  9. Knee barked at me a bit when I went down the stairs to set up for a trainer ride, so, I shifted gears and went for a walk. Back from ninety minutes, five miles, in the fog. As a bonus I picked up two books from a nearby Little Library!

  10. Pity I don’t have the time to learn how to embed music in a post, otherwise you would all get Whammed! tomorrow. Lol

    Wordle in 4 starting with STARE.

    Visited the cafe for the first time in a month. Surprised there wasn’t a missing person’s flyer with my face on it. Of course, my regular order is glutenous and gluttonous, so I had to make adjustments. The server who brought my order was absolutely sure there had been an error because there was no roll on the plate. If I had ordered sweet tea, she would have sworn I was an imposter.

    Talked to our neighbor who was recently diagnosed with stomach cancer. He’s on week 2 of 6 of chemo treatments and still feeling pretty good. Hope he continues to do so.

    I will officially be unemployed after the first week of January. What a relief!!

  12. Debbie Brady says:

    WOW, it’s a good thing Steve isn’t home. The FedEx driver just backed into our front yard to turn around. There is more than adequate pavement for him to turn around on, but no he backed right into the yard. As wet as it is, I’m surprised he didn’t really tear the yard up. I called in a complaint.

    Steve would’ve snatched him out of the truck!
