It has been something of an up and down few days. My list of things to do turned more into a “must get done” sort of thing. I set to with the new photos and videos for the Stephen Gibb website, had a few head banging moments with the host pages sftp applet, but winged it rather well. Quite pleased with the results, hope our hit rate goes up http://www.stcgibb.com As with all things web media, it is not just the site, I then had to do the necessay tweets, FB posts, Yahoo group messages to advertise the new stuff. Technology technology.
With my techy head still whirling I set to with my own site, uploading some new photos in the Me, Family, Misc albums and a whole new album related to my sailing. I still need to work a few banners for the album tops, but thats for another time. On the Family Tree page I have added a jpeg of my family lineage which shows how far I have got. One day I hope to add a more indepth tree, once I have concluded my diggings. Same with my sailing trip blogs, two are already up, but I need to add the other two at some point, mind you it is mind boggling to realise that my first strip was some 17 years ago!!
We had some sad news, one of my Aunt’s died, such a shame. I have been swampe with childhood memories of visiting and staying with her and her husband, of them holidaying with us. My sadness is compounded with the fact that I will not be able to attend the funeral because it is on the door step of my Sister’s vacation. Somewhere in my noggin I feel that this may well be the last opportunity I will ever have to visit my clan, but things are as they are ::shrug:: Letters and cards will have to surfice. I get so despondent when my muscle disease prevents me from accomplishing something tha would not even warrant a second thought if I were fitter. I mean, a couple of years ago, I would have driven myself to the funeral along with my bestest, but not now and it is not exactly train-able.
Thinking on the tree research, I need to get on and process the information from the latest bundle of certificates that have arrived, so intriguing. Even if I do say so myself, I am doing rather well.
Enjoy your weekend folks.
