*  Laid down for a nap at noon, and the power went off, knocking the computer out.  Got up and got the computer going and during the bootup the power went off again.  As a result, the next bootup included the check disk routine which took about an hour to finish.  I couldn't get the browser to open and restarted several times.  It finally did so it looks like no harm, no foul.  Except i'll never have the 90 minutes back.  Worried that the computer might be dead, I opened the laptop and read and started the News post.  Frustrating.

Genea-Journal - 12 to 14 July 2019

The Padre games lasted way too long on Friday and Saturday nights, so I didn't journal.

1)  Friday - the usual - blogging, reading, practiced the two talks, and the Padres lost 5-3 to Braves.

2)  Saturday - the usual - reading, blogging, gave the two talks at SDGS to good reviews, enjoyed the ice cream and challenge.  Padres lost 7-5 in 10 innings to Braves. 

3)  Sunday - the usual - blogging, reading, researching, TreeShared, did Ancestry Hints, and Padres lost 4-1 to Braves.  Braves are good!  Pads now 45-48 on the season, and lost 6 straight at home. 

Back to normal on Monday.  I think.

Genea-Journal - 4 July 2019

Happy 4th of July to all of my readers.  This was a quiet genealogy day at home.  We didn't
t go down to church for the fireworks for the first time since about 1997.

*  Dropped Linda at the Y, home to read, added to the Best Of post, and noted that Treasure Chest Thursday - 1728 Dutch Reformed Church Marriage of Jacob Van Vorst and Anna Beck in Albany, New York posted.

*  Picked her up and home by 9:15 a.m.  Wrote My 22 Known Revolutionary War Soldiers.  Researched and wrote Seavers in the News -- Mrs. R.A. Seaver Dies in New York in 1913, but messed up the post time.  Had a nap.

*  Online at 12 noon to read, had lunch, and worked on the 52 Ancestors post for Friday.

*  Started the CVGS Newsletter - got three pages done, five more to do.  Watched the DC 4th of July celebration.   Picked weeds in the back yard for awhile - filled the trash can, and got the tumbleweeds disconnected from the roots.  Need to get them in the can too next week.

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. to finish dinner prep, we ate, watched TV news, and then watched the Padres game, read the paper, then read my book, and washed dishes and put the trash cans out.  

*  Padres lost to the Dodgers 5-1, so now 42-45 and lost 5 in a row.  Drat.  Linda saw fireworks from Imperial Beach and CV bayfront out the back window and was excited. 

*  Online at 9:30 to read, check Facebook, and write this post.  Genealogy today was 7.5 hours.
