Spent most of yesterday in a workshop on Social Media. It was pretty good, picked up a few tips and created a new Facebook page for the Beandock. Facebook I'm pretty good with, but I've had twitter for several years and don't use it much other than to tweet my blog every morning. I might start using it more now. Linkedin I'm on but never use it. Truthfully I can't see a great purpose behind it for myself. Then it was a mad dash around to mail parcels, do bank deposits, dropped off my laptop in the morning, checked on that, got it on the way home and I paid some bills. So I was tired when I got home. The house was cold too, the furnace never lasts all day and it was rather cold and raw although we didn't receive any rain or snow.
Checking back to Grandmother's Journal:
29th November 1973
Overcast and raining all day until afternoon late. What a pleasure not to get up early. Bob to M.C. [Middle Clyde] look after dogs and working on his chores.
30th November 1973
Last of November can hardly believe the time flies so fast. Settled in town a relief not to be alone in M.C. Love it but wish there was someone else around. To work as usual and Bob to M.C. to finish up house. He did a lot of his chores today. Things to do here in town but they will come. Tom not happy but I finally got him in his box. Wish we didn't have to leave M.C. No answer for that so far. Nasty day, rain snow mixed. More in M.C. then in town. [They lived in Middle Clyde for over 20 years with no power (except generator) or telephone, usually in the winter they would move to town for the worse months)]
I think I'm in need of another coffee. Enjoy your day!
