I just finished setting my new camera up so it is WiFi enabled with my laptop. No more wires to download pics.

That's a cool function. I still have to connect cables. I can connect the camera directly or plug the memory card into a card reader.

Now that you mention it, this one also has a regular sized SD memory card. I never thought to take it out and plug it in like I do with my trail camera. So now I have three ways to download pics.

But I would love to know the answers to these questions!
Generators for all three properties here. My friends who are farmers have generators. After being without power for 12-18 days in 1998 following the Ice Storm, those living in the country without generators got generators. My parents in northern MN have a propane one that is hardwired to their propane tank and to a secondary panel in the house (not everything runs off the generator if the power goes out). This panel gets automatically tested every 30 days. BTW, haven't hooked up the generators since 1998. They are kinda like battery chargers and air compressors--if you live in the country, they are essential items to have, but not necessarily items you use a lot. And yup, each property has at least one of those, too.

I'm having a Suzy Homemaker day. I just scrubbed all my pickling stuff, baked 3 dozen cookies, set the water distiller running, ran out for groceries and now I'm sitting with a cuppa and a cookie!

Experimenting with curry, making a regular stew, but seasoning is curry, similar to Thai recipes. Trying to make a meal in a bowl. See what happens with that tomorrow. Want to use quinoa instead of rice. Wish my wife would eat buckwheat, I love that stuff.

Our ancient apple tree recently lost a limb that was absolutely loaded. I just picked up 2 grocery bags full of mostly bruised and almost ripe apples. I think apple sauce and apple butter are in the works for this weekend.
