GEN-TALK -- some 'things' to take note of ... well, if you have a leisure moment in the midst of all the clearing out and cleaning up ...
After all is said and chores done, some of us are going to be digesting our yesterdays for the rest of the weekend and maybe into next Monday or even Tuesday ... every burp a comment on the 'cooking' ...
1. What is a 'period'? - WikiTree G2G this is an open-ended question ... in math it would marked a [ .... ) to indicate this
2. some software twitches which DO promise a better life, prosperity, and some measure of satisfaction ... New: First name variants, search by ID, G2G flagging - WikiTree G2G
3. and this is fun to watch, to over to the main opener page and watch the number of profile rise and rise and rise ... you have to refresh your browser of course to see that happening ... ? - 21,000,000 Thanksgivings , now Connected - today - - WikiTree G2G kept me entranced for about 5 minutes or even 6 minutes (easily entertained woman, here)
FRANKLY, I think it is mind-bending news !!!
GENEALOGICALLY speaking, I'm floating around 3,070 profiles, give or take ... give when I create a new one, take when I discover that for reasons I don't recall I have this or that person on my watch list who do not "belong" there ...
Still trudging along converting files and making corrections and gather more sources and ... awkward moments in life are when you have to pull yourself up by your own bootstraps, grunting and sweating and swearing ... all because you were 1) ignorant and 2) lazy and 3) feckless --
And NOW Karma, a lovely woman no doubt but a nightmare companion, has taken to whacking on you as punishment for those very reasons -- and possibly more than those three and I don't want to know which or what, thank you
WEATHER -- we did get a day or so of rain more than a week ago though .. it was EXCITING ... have not seen some since last winter ... not enough to soak the ground, soften it, though .... still need a jackhammer to dig a hole ...
HOME-FRONT -- WE did tread the antic road to the bank ATM, did not have to enter the bank itself, and that mile round trip was nearly 2 hours in the doing. Think we proved beyond doubt we are ancient tottering wrecks Still, it's a good feeling to know you can STILL do a mile, even if a snail is faster over the distance than you are ... of course muscles then complained for the rest of the day, the next day too -- this was Wednesday AM around 10 or so, and saw only 2 other people walking and they did the Social Distance Dance
NO obvious signs of building vacated .. although I must say I saw more than the usual number of "for rent" signs on housing ... obvious signs of a vacant business are dirty plate glass and weeds growing out of the sidewalk no cars in the parking spaces ... saw that during two previous economic recessions
In short the neighborhood routes I saw did not resemble the landscape seen in that film "50 Years After Humans"
I hope everyone fared well during the last week
