My Genealogy Saturday - 19 May 2018

Why can't I sleep past 5 a.m. on presentation days?  It's really frustrating.  I was tired all day. 

*  Dropped Linda at the Y, went to my men's breakfast, picked up Linda at 9 a.m., and got to church by 9:20 a.m.

*  Tried to hook my laptop up to the VGA cable on the stage and that didn't work.  I have no idea why.  So I hooked it to the VGA cable at the back of the room, used my clicker, and talked to the slides on the screen from the stage.  It worked out OK, I guess.  The audience of 30 seemed to enjoy the talk - lots of questions.  We had lunch there, and were home by 12:45 a.m.

*  Checked Facebook, wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 5.0 hours.
