Genealogy Journal Tuesday, November 17, 2009

A relatively quiet days with lots of time for research and writing - my kind of day.
  • Went through the blog posts - lots of Tombstone Tuesday entries which I was glad to see.
  • Drafted a resources post at GB on holiday blog templates - many genealogy bloggers like to spruce up their blogs for the holidays so I want to make sure they have resources and, more importantly, understand how to back up their current template in order to restore it later on!
  • Also worked most of the afternoon on my new "top secret" program at GB which has intrigued many folks.  Not sure the best time to make the announcement - probably this Friday, November 20, 2009.  Stay tuned.
  • The rest of the afternoon - which was cold, chilly and damp - was spent on research for my Hawaiian/Portuguese client.
  • Music: well although I didn't play any of it, I organized all my Holiday music.  I am a firm believer in no "Christmas" until at least the day after Thanksgiving - the economy be damned.  No decorations, no music, etc.  I'm old-fashioned and I like it that way.

If only stores would adopt the "No Christmas" music/decorating/STUFF until the day after TG!

Apologies for being MIA from Tombstone Tuesday lately, but can't wait for the unveiling of your "secret project"!

Son turned on the XM Radio Christmas Music on Monday. He seems to prefer the traditional stuff, so it's bearable. We had a good talk about Big Crosby yesterday.

P.S. Love your blog's holiday redesign.
