Genea-Journal - 11/22/07

Thanksgiving Day was fairly lazy for me - I was on the computer but didn't get a whole lot done. We were invited to our friend's home for dinner, and we enjoyed them, their family (their daughter has a 3-month old baby - precious - I love babies!) and their other close friends - there were 13 for dinner.

7:30 a.m. - Read my email and Bloglines. Posted the Edgar Guest "Thanksgiving" poem on Genea-Musings along with a Norman Rockwell picture. Wandered off into and to help my correspondent find his childhood friend's address and phone number. Had a little luck and emailed it to him. Posted two articles on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog. Opened my database and found that I needed to add material to several ancestors - did it for my Seaver grandparents and Richmond great-grandparents. Heard some of the Dennis Prager show and recalled that the information on the Pilgrim Thanksgiving feast in 1621 was posted on the Internet, so I found it and posted "The Pilgrim's Thanksgiving in 1621" on Genea-Musings along with a picture of unknown origin. Then it was lunch time, so I watched football and took a nap.

8:00 p.m. - Home from dinner at our friends house - we had a wonderful time. Read my email and Bloglines again. It was a pretty quiet day in the genea-blogosphere. I need material for my Family Journal, so I decided to review what I've already typed up in my Genea-Musings posts. Went through my December and January Archives looking for material - found two items worthy of inclusion, so I cut-and-pasted them into the Journal word processing document. That's one of the great things about blogging - you've already typed it in once and it makes sense to use it again if you want to or need to. Well, that's it for the day. No progress on the scanning task and just some progress on the Journal.

Genealogy today - 6.0 hours total, blogging 2.0 hours, Journal 0.5 hour, research 1.0 hours, database 1.0 hour; what did I do for the other hours? Read stuff, I guess. I hate it when I can't remember what I did today.
