New Ipad

A New Ipad Purchase!!!

Today was kind of a big day for me, because I have wanted an Ipad for a long time, but never could justify the purchase. I still almost cannot, but I can see more how I can use it in life, and I actually plan to do a lot of work on it where it hopefully will end up paying for itself! Wouldn't that be nice?

I love to write, and am online a lot. I love photograhpy, and these two things, writing and photography seem to be things that will work well with an Ipad. So I took the plunge.

My Ipad 3 is the 16GG version, white body, with a dark grey cover. Its nice looking. I am pleased. Trying to decide now whether or not I want to get a bigger cover that includes a keyboard, as that is how I type best. Its not a Mac product, but they look neat and my husband found this item by seeing it on the news. After further research, we realized it wasn't a Mac product. I think the company's name is Zagg. They look awesome. If you have any thoughts on this product, do share with me. I need to decide soon.

So far, loving the Ipad, after getting it to let me sign on our own WiFi connection. I had some residual connection left over from the store, and after talking to tech support, we realized it was an easy fix. I needed to turn off the WiFi connection altogether, then retry. It worked like a charm. My frustration was abated. Thanks Mac for making a cool product like the Ipad, I am very excited!!

Getting Back To Geneaology

Genealogy - Our Ancestry

I have loved history and personal family genealogy for a long time now.  It has been an off and on passion of mine for some time.  Recently I splurged and got a nice months membership at  This has been a joy, however the timing wasn't the best. What made it worse, was they renewed without my realizing they were going to automatically. 

I cancelled the second month, and have a few days left on this last month I paid.  So the next few days as I get some down time, I will devote to trying to get some of my money's worth out of the site that I paid so much to be a part of.  It was over 60 dollars now in two months, gulp... 

That said, I am thankful for the opportunity.  I need to make some good use of things, and then save things, and go back and see if the information is all correct or not.  The timing and the feeling rushed can make being accurate a harder chore, but its worth it.
