- Although I haven't been posting as much as I used to, I still try to keep current with the feeds I subscribe to.
- It's great to see Lee Anders back blogging.
- If you've never used a microfilm scanner to make digital copies of records, stop what you're doing and immediately find the nearest one.
- The last few talks I've attended have either not quite been what I expected or, frankly, duds. Sorry, but when I'm either falling asleep or thinking about how many records I could be finding while a speaker bores me, there's a problem. I'm not a public speaker and it may not be fair to criticize, but the problem seems obvious: Don't go on and on about your families if you have no way of offering practical advice that others can use. And if the talk is billed as a couple of hours for teaching others how to do something, you'd better do just that. Anyway, a week from Saturday I'll be going to another talk that, on the surface, promises to be unique and interesting. This is the Show Me State, so we'll see.
