My mother made waffles for her family of 10 children every Saturday when I was a child. (She would make 4 times the recipe) Now, I carry on the tradition and make Saturday morning pancakes for my small family. Enjoy!

Highlight color or text color?

The latest Gmail compose lacks highlighting altogether combines the text color and the highlight (background) color into a single button. I guess it was only used to emphasize the emotions of LOL cats. Shrug. Not a killer feature, and I’m glad I’ll never click on the wrong one button again; despite being a regular Gmail user since 2004, I would click the wrong text color / highlight color about 40% of the time.

Features--

Apparently, this feature was troublesome to implement; I’m glad it’s in the bit bucket… for now.
