I'm not at home in Vegas so I don't have my users' manual with me. How do I send pix from my phone to someone via e-mail?
That I don't know.... you might need a data plan for that, which I don't have/use anymore. I never tried to do that.

It didn't take me long to figure out how to send pix from my phone to my friends by e-mail. I sent a picture to my son and it took a long time to send it but he got it. It took about 15 minutes for me to get the picture from my computer to my phone.

It might be a good idea to resize the picture in your image editing software before sending it by phone, or by email, for that matter. Not everyone has a high-speed Internet connection, even now.

I did resize my picture. Made it smaller, and my son and I both are connected to high speed cable. It still took a long time. What other reason would there be to take so long?

As this thread has wandered a bit - yes I vote for a nice slice of cheddar on my warm apple pie! Hard to beat.
DAvid what is your question? I did not get it, sorry.

I tried making potato pancakes and failed!

I boiled the potatoes for 15 min (directions on bag) but I think I should have undercooked them, because I shredded them and made patties but they were like mashed potato patties. They did not fry well at all.

If you want crispy potato cakes use raw potatoes and shred. Cooked potatoes will equate to a more mashed potato consistency.

Yes! A well-beaten egg, basically pureed, mixed in will make it hold together SO much better. Without it, they're basically fancy hashbrowns, the egg makes it a latke!

My grandmother used to make fried potato cakes from leftover mashed potatoes ... a little flour, some beaten up egg all mixed together with a little salt and pepper, a big tablespoon (a big table spoon - not a measuring spoon tablespoon ... could have been 1/4 - 1/2 cup) scooped up and patted into a patty ... into a cast iron skillet with a little bacon drippings ... over about medium heat.

She also make potato cakes from grated potatoes, and onions, and other stuff ... but no need to go into that since the original poster's question was about using leftover mashed potatoes.

If she were trying to be kosher I bet she'd know not to do that!
