Finishing up another volume of the Burial series of Lenawee County, Blissfield Township. Pushing to get to the printer (40 some miles away) and proofed and approved and printed before the end of the month. Not as easy as that sounds, last book took well over 5 weeks, 2 proofs, both had errors, one mine, one not.
That post back up project is plugging along, and after carefully snooping around in Word (I still DO NOT like that program), I found a way to get the buff background color off the copy/pasted files. Looks nice that way, so I might redo the 60 or so files already done with the buffy color. Also have decided to put all comments on a seperate page, so if I want to link a file to someone in my data base, I can decide if I want the comments or not. If not, I ditch that page, resave the file with a new name, link to RM (RootsMagic) and it is a done deal.
And, we still wonder, just a little, is our air card grandfathered in, with no 5 gig limit, OR NOT!?! We call the service provider and get a different answer almost every time. And, to the last two people who stated we are grandfathered in, we HAVE YOUR NAMES!!! And, I have screen shots from last months useage charts online. So much fun, one day, 4,300,000 bytes and the next day ZERO bytes used. Next day, 4,500.000 bytes used. What a roller coaster of fun that is. Geeshh.
Off to a local cemetery in a few hours, photo op, local paper, hope the article promotes the Lenawee County Family Researchers ongoing Burial Book project more than someone we know who gave the phone interview the other day. GULP! LOL
Working on winterizing the yard, semi-winterizing Tana (we hope, well, more on that later). Garage is cleaner than it has been in several years, we can see the floor! WOW. Pole barn, forget it, it is what it is. I am trying to clean paper piles and such in the stick built. One day it feels like I made some progress, the next day, what happened overnight?? My trash cans are full, where is all this stuff coming from??
Our doctor is moving OUT of the county because of some legal smegal crud his "group" is enforcing. For now, we are staying with him, because we like him, have faith in him and don't want to change at this moment. Frustrating. Gonna have to drive 45 minutes now to visit instead of 10. SIGHHH
So, Reflections is a tad frazzled on Friday, and now I am off to conquer the frustrations and life! Watch out, it might get ugly! Surely will get interesting! Here I come!
