The Wall

I hit a wall on Tuesday, and absolutely collapsed. Well, I almost absolutely collapsed. I put two coats of paint on the stairs, while the paint dried, I wrote some posts for my Belle’s Box series over on Granny’s Genealogy. Then, it was outside to paint the new trim, which will go in the living room once the floor is installed. It was too windy, but I didn’t quit, I just painted and then put the trim back into the garage. D3…

Family Tree Magazine’s 40 Best Genealogy Blogs

…hold, we get a little tired of those who know everything, and want to share it with everyone. It is no wonder I started writing about my genealogical research, the household residents have heard it all, and they are not impressed.

Yesterday was interesting. I dress to go to Big Box for paint. I look downstairs and decide I have enough paint for the wood trim on the living room windows and banister. I take off clothes, and put on grubby clothes. From there, it is downhill: Open shop…

What Planet are you from?

…emselves from location to location. Of interest this year is the trend of groups of boxes of dollar items sitting on the floor or ground in narrow rows. The items are the same in Florida, Ohio, and where we found today, Tennessee. The most interesting think is that we’ve been to enough of these establishments to find the similarities. Talk about being cost driven – we must be. I need to tell about one unique experience at a flea market, which…

Progress and Pain

Back on December 28, 2008 I made some resolutions, on which I will report progress today in this post. This is not a 30 day or quarterly report, I am writing it because I don’t know what else to write today, and this may help me decide what to write tomorrow. No more foot dragging, here are my resolutions for genealogical research: Enter all the information from the BOX into my database. No exceptions, no cheating. I will file all the…
