This should be fairly self-explanatory.
I finally got around to documenting it
primarily for my own edification.
It all makes sense to me.
No real regrets per se. It was all a learning experience.
I got great use from most of the cameras.
I used most of them nearly every day.
This is why I took a 30-year break from cameras!
But it is one of my very few vices and
I have to have some vices to keep me human.
I am talking about the plastic enclosed condiment kits provided by hotels as part of their coffee maker service.
My GRIPE is the fact that each packet contains BOTH a sachet of sugar and a sachet of sweetener — and in the case of the more generous ones, two sachets of sugar and two sachets of sweetener.
Though I am sure that there are some that will use BOTH the sugar and the sweetener to add taste to their coffee many will use just ONE — either the sugar or the sweetener. And, moreover, there will be those that don’t use either, but just opt for the creamer.
What kills me is what happens to the sachets that are left UNUSED.
I do NOT believe that room service collects them and recycles them. There will, obviously, be some ‘safety’ and ‘hygiene’ issues with that.
I am fairly sure that the cleaners just toss the unused sachets in the garbage.
THAT IS SUCH A WASTE.
Why can’t we have a better scheme.
I, for one, would NOT have a problem if hotels had dispensers like the ones we find at even ‘high-end’ restaurants. IF we will use them in restaurants why should we have an issue using them in a hotel room? IF they, in any way, look tampered or soiled YOU could, of course, call room service for more.
Or we can have SEPARATE sugar and sweetener condiment packages. I will just use the sweetener packages in the room and the sugar ones will remain unopened.
This is an outrage. A crime against humanity.
There are millions around the world that would LOVE this sugar/sweetener we are throwing away (and PLEASE don’t even start the debate about sugar being bad for you since that is not what this is about).
THINK. Thinking is good for you.

That is our hope for Series 7 too.
I will keep you posted on which YouTube videos actually work. Yes, there will, ALAS, be a ton of fakes and I am not sure why people bother with such deception. Very sad.
