My genealogy day - 4 June 2011

No genealogy research today - just meeting commitments.  And a camera problem.  Some blogging. 

*  Read email and blogs before going off to the men's Bible study breakfast.  Was home by 9:30.  Noted that Surname Saturday - VAN VORST (Holland > New York) posted.

*  Wrote Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - If I Knew Then... and set it for after noon.

*  Wrestled with my Nikon Coolpix camera - got a Lens Error and can't take pictures.  Searched online for brute force fixes and found some, but they didn't work.  Now I need a new camera.  Downloaded pix on the camera to the computer.

*  Listened to the Mysociety Radio show, and chatted too, until 11:45 a.m. when I grabbed an apple and my laptop and went off to do my presentation at Bonita Library.

*  Got there at 12 noon, and waited for doors to open.  Gary got the room opened at 12:10 and we arranged the tables and chairs, then got my computer set up.  The library's projector settings were messed up, so Gary went to get the CVGS projector.  I started my talk by discussing the books I had brought, and the others on my bibliography list.  The talk had six segments, one for each New England state.  After each segment I gave a little pop quiz and encouraged a little exercise to keep the brains engaged.  Seemed to work.

*  Over at 2:40, and home by 3 p.m.  Read everything, checked in on Facebook, answered some email, and went in for a nap, watch TV and read the paper.  Back online at 4:30 p.m. to read, then took Linda to Oggi's for dinner, and Cold Stone for ice cream.

*  Home by 6:30 p.m. to watch the second half of the Padres game - we won 6-3 over Astros (now 26-33, 12-21 at home now). 

*  Online at 8:15 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, work on the CVGS Newsletter, and write this post.
