Greetings and Salutations, WikiTreers!
It's been a bit of a slow week at home, which is nice as I've needed a bit of time to catch up from the crazy days of the previous week. I'm not a fan of colder weather, as I get poor circulation in my extremities, and have to wear extra clothing just to stay warm. My wife on the other hand can't stand the hot weather, so she's starting to come into her element now. I love her, so I try to enjoy the fact that she's happy with the weather, while I shiver in the corner under a mound of sweaters, sweatshirts, and blankets.
That reminds me of winter camping when I was doing the Scout Leader thing with my son in Boy Scouts. I believe it was around October when we had a camping trip to an airfield, and there was zero wind break around us. So when the temperature dropped at night, it got into the teens with near zero wind chills. Those tiny paper thin tent walls barely hold out the wind, and I huddled in my sleeping bag, feeling my whole body going numb. I brought blankets, extra clothing, and none of it was helping to keep me warm. So I cheated, and went out to my car, and stayed there for an hour with the heat on full blast and let my body temperature warm back up before I sneaked back into the tent to pretend I'd been there all night. I didn't get a lot of sleep either way, but at least I didn't shiver the whole night (just most of it).
On the genealogy side, I am starting the push for Fulkerson-2000 around here - we're nearing 1900, but I'm going to have to get serious about getting more Fulkerson profiles out there if I want to see it by the end of the year. It's not one of those MUST HAVE things, but it would be nice if it can happen. I'm not the only one entering profiles, so if we all pitch in and can find people to enter, then I'm sure it can happen.
I've been working on several Notables - I saw that George Westinghouse on the AC-DC post seemed to be missing several lines, so I jumped in and found a few. Plus I added some cousins, aunts, uncles and a couple of marriage lines too. So hopefully that helped improve some connections to him. In some cases, I think Westinghouse now is much closer to certain people and he might even beat out Edison for a few (but probably not the majority). I also got back to my Science Fiction authors and added the profile for T. Bruce Yerke. I've never read anything he wrote, but he won a Hugo Award, so that was enough for me.
Halloween is coming upon us fast, so I might set him aside if I can find a suitable horror film actor to work on for the season. I like to pick one out and get him connected if I can. More if I'm lucky. (I wonder if the woman who played the Bride of Frankenstein is out there... hmmm...)
