Something Pithy Here

"Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop." -- The King of Hearts

I'm an adopted Texan. As they say, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!" I post pictures and opinions as suits my mood, mostly because I can. Hooray Internet! 

So far I have three blogs here. By the Way is the oldest. I started it in 2003. I lost a couple of years to Vox because I was too lazy to bother to export when they shut down. I consider it an exercise in accepting impermanence. When I followed my husband to Singapore for his first expat assignment, I started (T)expatriate: A Southern Girl in Singapore. That covers 2010 and 2011, give or take. Next came Oslo, and (T)expat 2: Norwegian Boogaloo,  in 2012. Now I'm back home, and back on By the Way.

Pix live on Flickr. I toss links out on Twitter when I feel like it. I'm still not sure what to do with G+ but I kinda like it.


Slowly Getting Organized

What with a business trip during the week (complete with no computer access and no bar at the hotel!! who ever heard of such a thing??) and the cold that I probably caught on the plane, this has been a low-productivity week for personal projects. (The business trip was hugely successful, however.)

Today is the first day my head has been on straight since I've been sick, and I actually got a lot accomplished. I've been through the several folders and boxes of letters, photos and documents that I've accumulated and separated everything identifiable out into person- or family-specific folders. I made a bunch of new entries into the database as necessary to generate IDs for my folders. Now I have a nice neat shelf of labeled files and two considerably smaller piles of "unknowns." I think this will really help me get geared up to start scanning and uploading some of this GOLDMINE of history that I have. Obviously I'm very proud of myself :-)
