*  Dropped Linda at the Y, home to read email and blogs, added to the Best Of post, and noted that   Amanuensis Monday -- 1810 Mortgage Deed of Nathan Gates to Jonathan Osgood in Gardner, Massachusetts posted.  Picked her up and home by 9 a.m.

*  Had lunch, and did some more.  Wrote Monday Genea-Pourri - 15 July 2019.  Gathered the AT&T stuff and took my email sheets with them to FedEx and turned the hardware in to send to AT&T.  Pretty easy.

*  Home by 2:15 p.m. to take my nap.  Online at 3 p.m. to check Twitter and Facebook, and then searched for records for Treasure Chest.

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. to finish cooking dinner, we ate, watched TV news and I did dishes.

*  Online at 7 p.m. to read, write the Treasure Chest post, and resolved 233 Ancestry Hints adding content and sources to the RootsMagic file.

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 - Wednesday, 10 July 2019

I've always known that I'm human, and proved it several times today.  I found two misteaks.

*  Dropped Linda at the Y, home to read, added to the Best Of post and noted that Siblings Marion and Fred in Chula Vista in 1982 -- Post 573 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday posted.

*  Decided I had better practice my two talks on Saturday, so started the first one before I picked Linda up at 9 a.m.  Home by 9:15 and finished the practice run.  Added some words to several slides.

*  Took a nap, and then prepped for the CVGS Research Group.  Figured out that I forgot to go to the UPS Store to print the CVGS Newsletter, so printed the master and the mail list.  Had lunch.

*  Left at 11:20 for the library, got set up, we had 16 for the Research Group and I bumbled through my 45 minutes.  Gotta do better!  Stopped at the UPS Store and printed the newsletter two days late.  Maybe no one will notice!

*  Home by 3 p.m. to read, noted that San Diego Genealogical Society Monthly Meeting and Ice Cream Social on Saturday, 13 July posted.  Checked Twitter and Facebook.  I think I dozed in the computer chair.  Went out and got the tumbleweed remains in the trash can.

*  Online at 6:30 p.m. to read, then worked on the Treasure Chest post.  Found out that I did two 6th great-grandparents for 52 Ancestors rather than two 5th great-grandparents, so will do the 5th great-grandfather this week.  Need to edit some details on the ones already done.  This is error #2 made some time ago but found today.

I would get a lot more done, and journal every night, if I didn't watch the Padres games.  We lost three games this week to the Giants, and we played badly, losing 13-2, 10-4 and 7-5.  We went Tuesday night when the score was 10-4, but we left after 7 innings when it was 7-1.  So no journaling the last two nights.
