My Genealogy Thursday - 7 September 2017

This day did not go as expected - the Internet/phone connection was really flaky and I had little research or blog time as a result.

*  Dropped Linda off at the Y, home to read email and blogs, picked her up, and home by 9:15 a.m.

*  Internet was flaky - one minute on, 10-15 minutes off, until 10 a.m. I called AT&T at 9:30 a.m. and struggled to understand the lady.  Finally told her I didn't want an appointment on Monday, I wanted it today, and she came up with one before 12:30.  I no sooner hung up and it magically was OK for two hours.  So I finished reading blogs.

*  Worked on the CVGS newsletter during the outage too.  Noted that 1712 Birth Record for Samuel Peirce in Watertown, Massachusetts - - Post 381 of Treasure Chest Thursday posted.  Wrote a post for Monday, but I see Eastman has posted it anyway in violation of the embargo.

*  Rested my eyes for 30 minutes, had lunch, and the AT&T guy came and said he would go down to the telephone box and work on it.  Internet went flaky at 1 p.m. and stayed that way until 4 p.m.  I worked more on the CVGS newsletter, a questionnaire, the 52 Ancestors sketch, and  worked on balancing the checkbook in MSMoney.

*  When it came back, I checked Facebook and wrote Track Down Your WWI Military Ancestors with Free Multi-Session Webinar.  

*  Went in for dinner at 5:15 p.m., watched TV news, and then watched the Padres game.  Read the paper, and then my book.  Padres beat the Cards 3-0 so now 63-78 on the season.  

*  Online at 9:15 p.m. to read, then wrote the 52 Ancestors post, added to the Best Of post, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was maybe 6 hours.  Internet has been fine since 4 p.m.  Knock on wood!
