Genealogy Journal - 10/19/08

It was a pretty typical Sunday in Chula Vista - the sun was out, the Chargers lost on the road and I did some blogging. Oh, and watched Desperate Housewives.

I read my email and blogs this morning before the game, and even squeezed in the post about the 58th Carnival of Genealogy. Then it was to the TV and my hope sprang quickly and fizzled. The TV feed from Buffalo was dead for most of the first half of the Chargers game. Even worse, it came back on for the second half and the Bolts lost 23-14 by mistakes and non-performance when it counted. Very frustrating. I did manage to finish The Best of the Genea-Blogs post before I went with my contractor to Home Depot for more wood. When we got back, I posted the seminar pictures to the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog and then to Genea-Musings. I worked for awhile on the SDGS presentation handout, and then saved it to my web page. I uploaded a number of documents to my web space using Google documents, just to see what happens to them.

We had to go out to a wedding reception for Margie and Ryvess at the South Bay Grill. It was nice - the food was good for me, but Linda couldn't eat any of the buffet food - the restaurant gave her plain veggies and chicken. We sat with our swim club friends and even talked to the mayor of Chula Vista. We were home by 7:30, and watched the end of the Bosox-Rays game - the Rays are going to the Series. Good for them. I like underdogs. I had 30 minutes before Desperate Housewives, so I checked Facebook, and read my email and blogs. After DH, I checked Bloglines and all of the posts have come through - since 1 October. Then I wrote this post. I need to back up my files tonight, and transfer files to the laptop for the trip. I still have scheduled posts to write for next week, too. Linda has started to pack.

Genealogy today was 5.0 hours - 0.5 hour doping email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Facebook, 2.5 hours writing blogs, and 1.0 hour on the SDGS presentation.
