Genealogy Journal - 03/02/09

It's funny how days turn out sometimes - I woke up today with the only to-do item of importance to modify my ProGen homework a bit and blog about something...I didn't know what!

On the computer by 8 a.m., I read email and blogs. The email had the NGS Upfront newsletter, and I noted the new NGS web page mention - I can blog about that. I captured some screens, and wrote up NGS has a new web site look before Rush Limbaugh had played one bit of his CPAC speech. I got cleaned up to go out at noon. OK, what now? The blog list had Eastman's article about WDYTYAL and AA, so I played with Ancestral Atlas a bit, captured some screens, and posted Ancestral Atlas: Post 1 - First Look, hopefully before anybody else does. The proof copy for my column came, so I printed it out. Lunch time, so I ate at home and took off for the library at noon.

John and Dearl were there for Table Talk, and I showed the column to them. Not much reaction, too wordy? interesting thoughts, etc. I read some periodicals, and was home before 2 p.m. I dug into my ProGen homework and added one more source and modified my analysis to reflect the changes. I think it's ready to pass to the other group members. I might even blog about it! At least about the problem. On Facebook, a Gustave Anjou asked me to be his Friend - he had none at the time. I did that and by tonight he's used my Friends list to get 41 more. I'm guessing that this is an elaborate joke - well done so far! It will be interesting to see how far it goes. At 4, I went out to help Linda in the garage (hey, real work! lift this, put those here, put it back, Ummpphh). Then I had to cut the lawn in order to be permitted a Haagen Dazs ice cream bar tonight (the things I do for chocolate!). I came in at 5:15 and watched the news, read the paper and ate dinner while Linda went off to help Barbara.

After dinner, Linda hogged the computer until 6:45 p.m. - I actually got the laptop out and checked Facebook for awhile. I read Janet and Donna's blog posts and decided to make some screens and posted Facebook for Dead People - a MOAGFT? I finished just in time for the two hour 24 episodes - good ones tonight! I was back after 10 p.m., had a FB chat with Cyndi about Anjou, checked email, blogs and Facebook, then wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 8.5 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 1.0 hour on Facebook, 3.0 hours researching and writing blog posts, 1.5 hours doing the ProGen homework, 0.5 hour reading/proofing my column, and 1.5 hours on CVGS.
