1) Thursday, 14 July:
* Read email and blogs, found a treasure I hadn't posted yet, and wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 73: Hannah (Rich) Richmond's Death Certificate. Wrote My Research Problem Solution Advice and set it for later in the morning.
* Revised my Searching Ancestry.com presentation and syllabus for next week at GSNOCC.
* Had lunch, then went off to Wal-Mart, Lowe's and Home Depot looking for a plug-in wall light strip for the genealogy cave - tired of the dim light. Finally found one at Home Dept. got the paint for the graffiti wall too.
* Home by 1:30 p.m. to read, checked Google Plus and Twitter, was sleepy so went in to watch TV News and take a nap.
* We left at 5 p.m. for the trolley, ate at the Tin Fish, and enjoyed the Padres game until the top of the 9th. Giants went on to win 6-2 in 12 innings (6 straight losses, the season is over...).
* Home by 11 p.m. to read quickly, and off to bed.

2) Friday, 15 July:
* Read email and blogs and Google+, then wrote Follow Friday - Weekend Genealogy Fun and edited my FGS FORUM column one last time. Sent it off to the editor on deadline day.
* Hung up my new light strip and it got brighter in the cave.
* Answered some email, and got into Find-a-Grave for Seaver folks and had a fun time adding data and sources to the database. I should keep track each week of things, I guess.
* Wrote Dear Randy: Are There Ethical Standards for Genealogical Research?
* Did some JMSeaver family research - found some articles about JMS escapades that I hadn't seen before. Transcribed them into his notes. That will be another Seaver series, I think!
* Called for dinner at 5:30 p.m. and watched TV news after, then on line at 6:30 to read, and joined Geneabloggers Radio at 7 p.m. It went until 9 p.m.
* Went in to watch the end of the Padres game and read the paper. Another loss. So boring now.
