Genealogy Journal - 03/15/08

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

This was not a day for genealogy research - I really didn't do much today but write blog posts and read. I had my men's Bible study breakfast today at 8 a.m., and got home around 9:30. I was ready to go, but the d*mn 'puter froze up and I rebooted, wasting about 30 minutes. Then I read my email and blogs using Bloglines. I posted my "It's St. Patrick's Day!" on the multi-hued green Genea-Musings. Then I posted "New England Historic Genealogical Society databases" to summarize what is on that web site, and to indicate that it is not served well by sites that list vital records available on the Internet. Finally, I wrote most of the next "Best of the Genea-Blogs" so I can post it tomorrow morning.

It was lunch time, so we had leftover pizza, then I went out and cut the back "lawn" (more like weeds...) before the rain comes tonight. I came in tired and cold, watched basketball on TV and read the paper, fell asleep but was awakened by the doorbell, and watched the Fox News Watch program. We're trying to figure out where to go for our anniversary, so I looked for hotels in downtown San Diego since we have Padre tickets for opening day. Everything is sold out - there must be a convention that week! Then it was dinner time.

I was on the computer by 7 p.m., and read email and blogs. I made a long comment on Eastman's blog about the Rootsweb/Ancestry thing. Then I started "banking" some blog posts for next week when I'm in Santa Cruz. My computer time will be limited but I should be able to post one or two items each day in the evening. It's 9:45 pm. and I'm done for the night.

Genealogy today was all of 5.0 hours - 0.5 hour reading email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, and 4.0 hours writing blog comments and posts. I'm just a genea-blogging fool, eh?
