Every Yule time I give me, and my daughter, Shani, a gift of something that we really want. This year it was better internet. So you can imagine all the fun I've had of late, going where I have never been before! This switch to the 21st century was just in time to enjoy the video feed from RootsTech. I had a wonderful time! I believe that all things happen just when they are supposed to. Needless to say, right now I am a happy camper.
Today was one of those serendipitous days that are rare indeed. I had time, I had my first cup of tea and Genealogy Circle posted a link on Facebook to an Explorinar called "Evernote - Easy Note Taking UPDATED" by Thomas MacEntee of High-Definition Genealogy and the great GeneaBloggers leader! I had an Evernote account for some time but no time to learn how to use it. I opened it and found it a real mystery. So I had to put it aside until I could find the time to figure it out.
How is that serendipitous you ask? Well, there I was with time, a teacher and a wonderfully hot cup of tea. I not only learned how to use Evernote, but I was able to set it up in my Google Reader, which I would never have known I could, and have the web clipper in my browser. The biggest plus is that I know how to use it. Thomas was very clear and made it easy to understand.
A big thanks out to Thomas! I enjoyed it very much and I learned something new.
