Hello world!

I wanted to get this up before the day passed for a number of reasons.  First, it’ll be easy to remember the anniversary of my first post.  Ease in life is something I constantly try to achieve.  And second, it’s my birthday and putting this blog together was my son’s present to me.  Seems only right to reward him with some pithy thoughts.  If only I had some.

This will be a blog mainly about genealogy.  I’ve been collecting the family history for twenty years now and I need to start writing some of it down.  I want to share the stories of looking for things, the problems I encounter along the way (they are the same problems everybody else encounters) and the excitement of discovery…like that extra cousin you never knew you had.  One of these days I want to write a book and maybe this will help.

That said, I’m one of those guys who has opinions…and will be happy to share.  It’s my blog…I’ll say what I want.

Finally, general folderol is anything that catches my fancy…and that could be anything.  Like my apparent fascination with ellipsis.

 One other note…I Must Be Full honors the memory of the grandfather who, when I was an impressionable child, took a sip of his tea, dribbled some on his shirt, and said “I must be full.”  I always thought that was funny…still do in  fact.  You can make kids laugh with this little trick.  No attribution necessary.

    Happy Birthday! Proud of you being elderly, but still trying to hang with the techie stuff!

    Go Dad!

    Glad you decided to do this, and as I told you, I’m stoked to see what you’ve got in store for us.

    Now I’m just havin’ fun in SFO…
