Good grief! Over a month's gone by and I haven't added anything new!

It's hard to believe that over a month's gone by and I haven't added anything to the blog! Most of the people I sent the blog to didn't know how to comment or subscribe but I hope that as time goes by, they will figure it out.

Let's see...in getting my sources uniform and correctly cited, I'm on Family...there's a lot of the alphabet left so my goal of getting my gedcom reloaded by the end of the summer isn't looking that good at all.

I've answerend inquiries on Paulsells, Hobbs & Orr, Moore, Harlan, Hollingsworth, Goff and a plethora of other inquiries. It's very important for me to try to answer these inquiries in a timely manner and add the information but it sure cuts into the time I need to get my database in line.

My nephew Nick married a wonderful woman about a week and a half ago and it was great seeing the family and we had a good time. It took any starch I had outta me though and so I've been spending more time resting. It's just the nature of the beast that's CFS.

Tomorrow's my dad's birthday and we will also be having an addition to the family - a niece!! My brother Patrick's little girl will be born tomorrow so all prayers on deck. We couldn't be more thrilled! And now my dad has a granddaughter to spoil.

Our oldest son and his family went on vacation to the coast in SC. Our granddaughter doesn't like the water on the beach that much but she loves the pool!

It's been unbelievably hot here!! Yesterday, the heat index was 101° at noon! I thank the Lord that someone was smart enough to invent air conditioning, that's for sure.

In working on the Mary Kay newsletter, I found a great font site http://www.fontdiner.com/. There are several fonts there that are free and are really cool. Check it out. Look what I was able to do with the font Fontdinerloveable and WordArt in Word.

After I got the text done in WordArt, I clicked Print Screen. Open Paint, pasted the image, saved it as a .gif so that the background's transparent, and then opened the image and cropped everything that didn't pertain to the image. This is a really cool way to make the most of some of the neater fonts and dings and it only took about 2 or 3 minutes after I figured out that you can't just click on the art and copy that.

I will probably post a Lost Blog in a day or two. There's new stuff going on. I just think I'm lucky to remember to post this stuff. Until next time...

May God bless you abundantly!
