Genea-Journal - 11/27/07

A strange day. I went to my physical therapy at 8 a.m., then drove the new expressway (free until Monday) to see the scenery, and ended up at Plaza Bonita, a shopping center. In the parking lot, I must have run over something that punctured my tire. When I left the center, the tire was flat by the time I got onto the freeway to go home. There is no shoulder on that stretch, so I drove another mile and finally ended up at the 7-11. The tire was shredded. I called AAA, and it took 45 minutes for him to find me. He changed the tire, and I went to the tire store and got a new one installed. I finally got home at about 1 p.m.

Genealogy today started at 1 p.m. I read my email and Bloglines, and decided to post about the newspaper article that appeared on Sunday in the Union-Tribune about the gravestone project. That done, I wrote a post to try to get someone to contact me - he commented on a post in October but didn't leave a contact eddress. I went off and read my news and politics sites and then Linda wanted to use her email so I went over and talked to the neighbors.

After dinner, I got back on the computer, and started gathering the "news of the month" for the CVGS Research Group on Wednesday. That took over an hour. I read the new issue of Internet Genealogy, and visited several web sites mentioned that were new for me, and blogged about www.familytreesearcher.com. Then I printed off a sample passport application and some township maps for show and tell at the CVGS group. After that, I played around on Ancestry for awhile while printing off the Journal pages I have completed. I now have 25 copies of 11 of the 16 pages printed.

Genealogy time today - 5.5 hours, 1.5 hours blogging, 2.0 hours CVGS related, 0.5 hour Journal, 0.5 hours researching, and 1.0 hours reading.
