Keeping Records and Photos Organized

Lately, I have been spending my time working on my family tree and as most of you may know the well dries up from time to time. I recently located a second cousin residing in Spring, Texas whom gave some wonderful treasures that I never knew existed. Talk about excitement. I also found a distant cousin living in Piedras Negras that emailed me some photos that belong to her Mother’s cousin that lives in Monclova, Mexico. The lady informed me I have an open invitation to visit her. Exciting!

Dowd, oconnell surnamesWhen it comes to the research, we find records, hopefully some photos that get placed on hard drives or flash drives perhaps in a specific folder or spread across different directories that just might become hard to find if we forgot which folder we put it in. The stack of printed paper that is scattered across our desks. I started to think that there has to be away to organize the information for faster access that is located on our personal computers.

I spent the last few days working on a program that would do just that. granted it is still in the design phase and I would like your thoughts, your input.

Database, Ancestry records, porn, sports, golfThis is the main screen concept.

On the thumb nail images if you click on the view larger button you would get a lager view of the images that opens up golf, horse, horse ridding, cowboys, sportsin a new window.

So let me know your thought.

This is my great grandfather Alfonso rios Gonzalez with his daughters taken in 1917 possible Farmersville, Texas since they were on the 1920 census record for that area.

Programs To Be Cut Under Trump Dynasty

Those who may not have heard the latest pertaining to the Trump Administration, here are some key points to keep in mind as our country moves foreword.

First, allow me to bring some bad news to most of us that still use the postal service to mail letters. As of Sunday, they are increasing the price from 47 cents to 49 cents. http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/markets/forever-stamps-will-cost-more-starting-sunday/ar-AAlZYlB?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartanntp

Sesame Street, Bert and Ernie, Cookie Monster

How many remember Sesame Street, parents favorite show for their children, not sure how the Millennials or younger generation feel about the Public Broadcasting show, Sesame Street, but for the rest of us, we will have to be prepared to possibly say goodbye to the show.

PBS may also be on the chopping block, “Off with their head”.

it is a Private, nonprofit corporation, founded in 1969. However their members is largely made up of America’s public TV Stations and the public viewer that donates allowing for shows like Downton Abbey, Sherlock and Finding Your Roots. However, on their Webpage they state receiving funding from the government as one of their sources of funding.

Here’s another one that will take the slow walk to the guillotines. As reported by, The Hill, The Slot, and Spin have all reported the same news within the last hour.

Report: Donald Trump Plans to Eliminate National Endowment for the Arts, Privatize Corporation for Public Broadcasting

I wonder if this comes about when “Rocky Balboa ” tuned Trump down for a position?

 

Electoral College Vote – Why

In a previous post, Right to the Moon Alice I was asked a question. That question, “January 10, 2017 at 6:22 pm

“How could we have voted this monster into office?!!”

To answer this we would have to go back in history to our founding fathers whom are responsible for drafting that bill and placing certain people in a special group to decide who will actually get into office. I’ve blogged about this before and this is one of the things we learn in history class, provided the teacher is good.

The Electoral College was placed in the event that we the citizens of the United States were viewed as dumb and ignorant to place a person in office.

There are augments for both sides of the coin, perhaps they had reason to do so and this Jay Leno video gives enlightenment to that one aspect as to why.

So, if one of your friends or relatives has the same question, comfort them by saying, “WE DIDN’T” put this creature in office, the Electoral College did.

Tit for Tat

Tit for Tat a phrase derived from a 1556 English term “Tip for Tap”, a phrase used to describe “blow for blow” the 1935 movie “Tit for Tat” staring Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy, Mae Busch demonstrates this to a Tee. Our friend, Gary Loggins  could possibly give a better description of this movie than I.

The Twitter feeds have been exploding since Congressman  John Lewis whom most of know as an iconic leader in Civil Right Movements stated that the President-Elect is not a legitimate President.  This is a day where we are supposed to be celebrating Martin Luther King Jr march for Freedom for all, putting a stop of hanging, torturing, segregation, burning, bulling  and plain pissing on a person rights cause of their skin color. Instead, we get Tit for Tat tweet storms that is not solving anything.

Twitter wars, Trump Vs John LewisWhen will we as a society learn from our past mistakes?  “you punch me in the eye, I will punch you in the groin.” This appears to be the main stream these days. Kind of makes one fear the “Finger on the button”.

Trump tweet warsSometimes, this scribe forgets that we are dealing with a person that retaliates anyone that does not agree with him and get inline like good little sheep should. After all, sheep are very easy to silence than larger animals.

SNL, Saturaday Night Live

Time for some levity.

Say What -What Planet Are You From?

Conway: Judge Trump by what’s in his heart, not what comes out of his mouth

Are you kidding me, say what, what planet is she from. I have seen some ass kissers in my time but she takes the cake, is all I can say.

For centuries we listen and learn about a person from what they say or got caught on tape saying certain things. We learn about a person from their actions when they are of few words. Conway wants the public to ignore what he tweets or says and judge by his heart.

Thoughts?
