.... I should have said "tube" .... 😁

 

Beautiful wedding pictures, your son and his bride radiate happiness 💕

Metro, tube, underground , I think it answers to all. 😏

 

thank you for your kind words about the bride and groom, I've never seen my son beam so much ❤ 

It was lovely watching the videos and seeing the wedding and speeches again . It all passed in a blur on the day

We're invited to 3 weddings in the next month - today (good friends), Sunday (our DIL's sister) and mid-October (next door neighbors).

 

Can't say we're not a bit wary being among so many people. You're supposed to be either vaccinated, after COVID or to show a negative PCR.... The venue management has to check.

 

We haven't been to a wedding for the last 5 years....

 

Weddings and cruises are the only places were I can dance. I absolutely like dancing.

 

Not sure about dancing at those weddings, though.

 

My son and DIL's wedding was one of the first allowed with no restrictions. I must admit I was a bit worried, especially as there were a few unvaxed teenagers and two very elderly ladies invited. I did let out a sign of relief when after a couple of weeks there was no reported cases from the wedding

Rhinegeist Truth IPA is what I miss most, Skyline second, Buckeyes third.  Maybe I should include my 2 daughters who still live in Cincinnati on the list

 

Indeed, you're facing a huge dilemma....😉

In this aspect, we should be very thankful for the new technologies 😁

After I organized our travel items. I decided to be good wifey and make a scalloped potato and ham casserole. Still early so I decided to make 7 dozen buckeyes.  I will deliver them tomorrow to a good friend  in Medina Ohio who really helped with wedding decorations. I forgot to take a picture of the pretty ones in a nice two level candy dish before I wrapped it. But the end product I kept because the chocolate gets gummy at the end and they look painfully ugly. Oh the DH will consume mass quantities of these no matter what they look like.

I held off upgrading my S7 until it got so slow I couldn't take it any more.  I got the S21 and was impressed by how Smart Switch https://www.samsung.com/us/apps/smart-switch/ transferred all my apps and data from my old phone to the new.  It was painless.  Alexa came over all set up, I didn't have to do a thing.  

 

Some things I don't want to copy over😉😇

We attended one on September 4.  A lot of dancing. Quite the scene! All remains well.

 

Our younger son is getting married at the end of October. A big wedding. Can't wait!!

I am curious so I started a new thread to see if anyone is seeing them these days.  I really want to make some.

 

Did someone say swizzle sticks? We went to an estate sale years ago and picked up a box. There must have been a thousand sticks. No Royal but there were some pretty good ones. This is the last bit if sticks that haven't been processed yet.

Are you enjoying it?  It sure is larger than my s7.

Yes I am! Pictures are really nice.....Someone peeking at my screen from behind commented on that. It was then that I paid more attention to pciture quality and the toys available with camera.😁

My S8 was not compatible to some newer version of apps and downloads.
I had to get something fixed and they said they do not make that for S8 anymore. It was working so I kept it till I dropped it flat on its face and the front glass smashed. .glass kept shattering every few hours like a ripple effect. $250 down at the you fix I break store...eventually upgraded to S21. not that glass breaking cannot happen again. I miss my PINK otter box defender case which I had on my older phones.......cannot find it anymore anywhere!!!!!!.☹️

I don't have so much as a scratch on the glass. I was thinking about replacing the battery since it seems to be weakening a bit. However, I know as time goes on apps are not going to run on the phone's version of android any longer. I have some time to figure it out. I just wish Samsung didn't ditch the SD slot.

Just figured out how much I would use an SD card.  As I was taking out my old SIM card I found a 64gb card in the old s7!  I forgot about it.  I noticed when data was being transferred from the s7 to s21, I noticed SD data transferring to the new phone.

Good to know that the SD data transfers. I wasn't sure if it was only the phone's internal memory that would move over.

I'm an iPhone guy, not a Samsung guy, but I've never run out of memory built into my phone.  That used to be an issue with older phones when internal storage was more expensive.  It was definitely helpful to have additional/cheaper SD card storage.  My current iPhone has 256GB of memory.  I've got it loaded with a ton of apps, and hi-res photos/videos and am just under 200GB used.  I could easily clear out at least 50GB if ever needed...probably more.  I don't see ever running out of storage.

 

Check your total combined storage of your S8 and SD card (guessing it's around 64-128GB total) and see how it compares to the 256GB built into the S21.  You may find that an SD card really isn't needed...even without using cloud storage.

Yes, my present storage is 64GB internal and 126GB on the card and I realize that a new phone with 256GB built in will be more storage than what I presently have. Now I need to get the right side of my brain to accept what the left side knows.

I'm unimpressed with ubreakifix after the sorry battery replacement on my S9. 

 

Definitely thinking about upgrading, but I have so many Alexa things on it, that I'm overwhelmed with the transfer

What happened with the battery replacement?

You might be surprised.  About 20 years ago I used to help a guy that set up one of the first Razorback message boards. When someone logged in we could monitor their IP address.  One day we had a rude visitor who was asked to stop being rude.  He didn’t so the guy that ran the sight traced his IP address back were the rude poster was posting from his office.  From there he got his name and address. Then we used a website that allowed us to look up his address and provided names of some of his neighbors.  So then, using names of his boss and neighbors we let him know if he didn’t stop, we would let his boss and neighbors know what he was doing….. He never visited again.  But I’m sure no one can do that these days.  😂 

Wow! He must have been shocked!

Shocked straight, maybe.

Guess I won't be finding any then, but I'll still ask.

I bought a pair of the earrings on EBay three or four  years ago. 
Playing on my phone,  I Googled Royal Caribbean and could have bought everything I ever tossed or GoodWilled.

So I did not get to clean yesterday. I decided today was not going to be a good day either. I am continuing to gather and organize for our soon to be cruise just a mere 25 days away. Today I got “thee” earrings out of the safe. 
 

I was fortunate to have been gifted them on a recent cruise(as recent as they get maybe 4 years ago). They are made by the master and only few were made. 
 

First  you have to gather the drink swizzle sticks. Carefully remove the tops then gently wire them.  
 

Shown  below.

I have a couple of pair similar to these.  Made by some friends using the old swizzle sticks.  Love them!
