My Semi-Genealogy Weekend - 21-22 November 2015

This was a pretty poor weekend for genealogy and San Diego sports...drat.

1)  Saturday, 21 November 2015:

*  Read email and blogs in a hurry, left at 7:45 a.m. for the church men's group breakfast at Callenders.  Home by 9:40 a.m.

*  Read, noted that Surname Saturday -- WODELL (England to colonial Massachusetts) posted, and wrote Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Who is Your Most Recent Immigrant Ancestor?

*  Worked on the year finances again.  Watched most of the Aztecs basketball game - lost to Little rock 49-43.  Terrible shooting game.

*  The house guys worked all day, got a lot done.  Joe came by and agreed on the door and the patio cover work.  Still 2-3 days of work to do.

*  Went in at 4 p.m. to watch football, read the paper, eat dinner, wash dishes.  Answered email, added to the Best Of post and checked Facebook.

*  Watched Aztecs football - great game, beat UNLV 52-14.  Dominated.  Didn't journal.  Read the New York book by Rutherford.  Genealogy this day was maybe 4.0 hours.

2)  Sundau, 22 November 2015:
