    What took the place of the iPod?

    I lost most of the music I had in iTunes, now it only shows the stuff I bought from Apple. I gave up and moved my record player to a more central spot, and play my records from the seventies or eighties, plus what I have from my parents collections of the 40's, 50's and 60's. I still have the...

    Genealogy research

    As someone vaguely interested in family history, and who also worked on many Census, I can defend wonky dates of birth and spellings. In the 80's and 90's, and early 2000's, if you didn't mail back your Census questionnaire, you had somebody knock at your door to ask you in person. If Dad...

    What is happening at work?

    Today we ordered in Swiss Chalet, and ate together in the boardroom, all five of us 6 feet apart. It was nice. The not so nice part was that no work came through until five minutes before closing. I at least got over 7000 steps in, walking around the office. Tomorrow I'm working from home again.

    What is happening at work?

    Tomorrow I am to help receive and set up laptops for everyone, even those who prefer to continue working at the office. I am one who likes the office. Tonight I got two hours of overtime, mostly advising clients on how to return unwanted benefits.
