So, I finished the title graphic for the Baker front page… It’s looking snappy. 3 down, only 30 left to go!
I was thinking I’d devote some time to setting up the ‘odd photo’ gallery off the main page today. It’s the section we’re planning on adding for all our interesting photos with light anomalies and such in. I was thinking something with a creepy looking front gate would be a good entrance… It’s about the only part of our site that has to do with anything ‘other worldly’… So I want it to look fun and creepy. We’ll have to see what I can come up with.
I want to do thumbnails and captions for photos, maybe even a section that allows comments… LOL I don’t know why we don’t just put it up at facebook at that rate. Who knows… We’ll find something fun to do with it all.

We spent a few hours on the Larson family last night, Barb remembered a re-marriage, spawned by Jake’s finding a census that didn’t make sense… It sounded something like
Jake: ‘This census has the right name, but it’s not matching up!’
Barb: ‘Oh wait! He did remarry and it really made Grandma angry…’
Jake: ‘And you’re telling me this now?!’

I swear there was a pulsing vien in Jakes head that was going to explode!
So they’ve got a new branch going there, even if it is short lived – I think they were too old to reproduce in the remarriage, which might be a good thing considering Jake’s non-entertainment at their existence.
I’m still rather stunned at the amount of people that share the same names and birth or death dates. It’s almost creepy at the lack of individuality we all have, even when we think we’ve got unique names and such. I mean, maybe with Smith or Jones, you expect common names… But the amount of Larsons is almost spooky. Bakers keep popping up everywhere… And names like Ruby Gladys shouldn’t be popular in my world, but… We all know I live mostly in my head!

What else? Yesterday we had a good time working on the Lee line from either Tennessee or South Carolina, but we’ve hit a dead end in the census search so we’re back to not knowing who Thomas Van Trump Baker is all over again.We’ve got some updates going into the TNG system tonight.
I’m not really sure when we’ll be online and ready to go. I was thinking maybe August 1… It would be sort of symbolic and happy. Who knows… Nothing’s going to get done if I don’t get to it!
Anyways… there’s today’s update 🙂
