My genealogy Tuesday - 2 October 2012

This was a day at the dentist - see my rant below.  Not a whole lot of genealogy done.

*  Read email and blogs, wrote Tuesday's Tip - Find United Kingdom/Ireland Information at GenUKI Site and then researched and wrote Creating a Specific Place List Report in Family Tree Maker 2012.

*  Left at 10 a.m. for the dentist for my appointment to get a new crown for tooth #3.  He replaced an old filling two years ago on this tooth with acryllic, and it never was right.  There was a food trap, which made me floss it every night.  But it was sensitive anytime anyone touched the gumline between #3 and #2.  At the last cleaning, he looked at it and recommended a crown for the tooth #3 to  get rid of the food trap and take care of a suspicious shadow between the teeth.  OK...today was the day.  After "reducing" #3 to a short stub near the gumline, he saw a small cavity at the gumline on tooth #2 which was hidden by tooth #3.  So we'll fix that next time.  They installed a temporary crown today, and I'll get the permanent crown for #3 and a filling for #2 in two weeks.  Two hours, $1,500, and frustration on my part.  Sorry for the rant...

*  Home by 12:45 p.m., read, got Ruthie's mail, then went to the UPS Store to print and mail the CVGS ByLaws mailer.

*  Home by 3 p.m. to read some more, then wrote "Who Do You Think You Are?" Program In Torrance a Smash Hit!

*  To reward my patience, worked in the database on sources for Sudbury MA entries - got about halfway through the Births for documented facts, proving the information and adding a better citation.

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to watch the Padres game, read the paper, take a nap, eat dinner, and do a bunch of small chores.  Pads lost 4-3 to the Brewers (now 75-86).

*  Online again at 8:15 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, check Facebook, add some Find-A-Grave content using the MyHeritage links, and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 6.5 hours.
