My exciting genealogy days - 4 and 5 May 2012

Four more get-ups until we fly off to Oslo.  Linda wants the suitcases on Sunday, and I'm busy getting my computer files on the laptop updated.

1)  Friday, 4 May:

*  Read email and blogs, and wrote Follow-Up Friday - Reader Comments and Helpful Tips.

*  Went off at 10:30 a.m. to the clinic for my blood pressure test, and stopped by the pharmacy on the way home.

*  Back at work at 11:30 a.m., researched and wrote New Hint Notifications on Ancestry Member Trees.

*  Wrote three Surname Saturday posts, then worked in the database for awhile.  Answered some emails also.

*  Watched DearMYRTLE's webinar on using FTM 2012.  Added to the Best Of post.

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m.  for dinner, then worked on the CVGS Newsletter for awhile.

*  Watched the Padres game until 8 p.m., then watched WDYTYA (the Rashida Jones episode) - excellent show this week.  Padres lost 9-8 to Marlins in 12 innings, it ended at 12 midnight.  Yawn!

Genealogy this day was 7.5 hours.

2)  Saturday, 5 May:

*  Read email and blogs, then went off to the Men's Prayer Breakfast at 8 a.m. We are studying Mormonism, and had two young missionaries as guests to help us understand beliefs, scripture and practices.

*  Home by 9:30 a.m. to note that Surname Saturday - HAMANT (England > Massachusetts) posted and to write Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - A 100 Word Genealogy Challenge.

*  Made the cruise shore excursion reservations, answered some emails, did some researxch on the San Diego Dill family in GenealogyBank.

*  Tuned in late to the MySociety radio show.  Drat, I wanted to hear about Mocavo.

*  Transferred my presentations for the cruise to flash drives, Dropbox and the laptop.  

*  Went in at 3 p.m. to watch the Kentucky Derby, read the paper and take a short nap.

*  We left at 3:45 p.m. for the trolley to go to the Padres game.  We were in our seats by 4:45 p.m. and I read the paper.  It was a Filippi's pizza night...and my ice cream in the helmet too.  Padres lost 4-1 to Marlins in a quick game (now 9-19 on the year).

*  Home by 8:45 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, and work on the CVGS Newsletter.  About 90% done now.  Wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 7.0 hours.
