Genealogy Journal - 04/03/09

The baseball season in San Diego began today - an exhibition game between the Padres and Angels. We went - it was cold, Pads lost 6-5. We came home after 7 innings. That gave me time to write this post.

Read my email and blogs, then Twitter and Facebook to start the genealogy day. Started to write Genealogy Videos on YouTube but the computer got real slow, so shut down, rebooted and finished it up later in the morning. Answered some email, checked some genealogy work sent by a correspondent who found my work on my web site - and told me I was wrong with a marriage. He's right! I guess I will have to fix the web site material sometime soon. Or create a new web site. Bother! Left at 11:20 a.m. for lunch at McDonald's (no choc shakes today, bummer!), then my weekly walk with George on the bayfront. It was cool - only 63 F with some wind, but we toughed it out in short sleeves.

I was home by 1 p.m., and started in on the CVGS newsletter work. Made a template for it, saved it, then started on the April issue. Got 6 of the 8 pages done - I need material still from other folks. I wrote Articles at, then let Linda have the computer and I took a short nap watching TV.

We left at 5 p.m. for dinner at El Pollo Loco, caught the trolley to downtown San Diego, walked the three blocks to Petco Park, and saw the Padres-Angels game. Even though we had just had dinner, we couldn't resist the 5 things for 5 bucks (hot dog, peanuts, popcorn, cookie and drink) - we shared it - and I had an ice cream sundae too. We left at 9:15 and were home at 10:15 p.m.

Checked email, blogs, Twitter and Facebook, then wrote this post. Not much happening in genealogy blog-land it seems.

Genealogy today was 6.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Twitter/Facebook, 1.5 hours writing blog posts, and 3.0 hours working on the CVGS newsletter.
