Story 9 ~ pic then video

Firstly correcting our presumption from last week

Nick Cave is an American artist not singer.

Secondly here is a video as Karen & I walking through an Apple Store for the  AR T  experience!

Also

Thursday afternoon this past week I was fiddling with a Shortcut to record my Date, Time and Location, in the Numbers app, when I arrive and leave a job.

Friday I opened a Numbers sheet I have with all my jobs in numerical order, only to find The Current Table was gone!  Swear Swear Swear! Only to find the backup I had was a month old!  Swear Swear Swear! The time of the last modification was when I was using the iPad to work on the Shortcut the previous day.

So I got the iPad, had to open Numbers and the sheet.  Shook the iPad, as in undo, it asked if I wanted to undo, answering Yes ~ All my missing data comes back! Yes Yes Yes!!!

I then went and fixed the backup of my iCloud data so I only can loose a days work.

Getting back that data saved me at least 4 hours, UNPLANNED, work this weekend.
