This is an old-fashioned salad… Sort of.
My mother would have / could have made this salad. She would have used canned peas and Miracle Whip but you get the idea.
I needed a salad of some sort for our bike ride picnic. Since I hadn’t been to the store or market in over a week I was left with staples.
That’s easy: frozen peas and pasta.
I’ve already made this again….

There is a reason I never went sky-diving. Knowing myself as well as I do, I envision me enthusiastically jumping out of the plane, and, seconds later thinking…. did I grab the parachute?
I really do try to remember to do things in the proper order, but, sadly, too often I’m in a rush for reasons that are rarely important.
Add in the fact that something has been working perfectly well for years so what could go wrong…
I have 12 email accounts (blog, 2 sites, other valid reasons). 3 of them are gmail accounts.
I use an ’email client’ which downloads my emails onto my computer.
The 9 other accounts are, apparently, set-up properly and are working as expected. The gmail accounts were not.
The problem arose last week when I could no longer download my emails.
I could explain all this but, really, who would care? I’ll just get to the point of this story.
My gmail accounts required periodic house-keeping which I neglected. When I attempted to fix my problem I ran into another problem. I had rather a large number of emails stored in my gmail accounts.
The first one I checked wasn’t bad – a little over 100 emails.
The 2nd surprised even me with over 10,000 emails that needed to be dealt with.
The 3rd account had over 24,000 emails.
Apparently I had neglected it for awhile.
For obvious reasons I didn’t chose to go through them all. I did a mass delete and am hoping I didn’t lose anything important.
I believe I have fixed the problem for the future.
Google and I should both be happy.
