You may know that I'm quoting Billie Holiday, the famous US singer. Well, I'm back "to work", back from the wonderful beaches of sunny Gran Canaria where I celebrated my 70th birthday and recharged the batteries. Sunny? Well, this time the sun wasn't shining every day as it has been doing through all my previous visits there. Some few days it was cloudy but warm indeed. Probably this change from the previous years is due to the "global warming" which is indeed affecting us all and will do more and more in coming years if nothing is done in reducing the evergrowing pollution caused by ourselfes. The environmental temerature is therefore rising, causing severe change in weather conditions all over the planet, too cold in some places, too hot in others, more thunderstorms, more floods in some places and more draughts in others resulting in hunger and starvation for millions. Just to mention few things. Not a bright future for our children and grandchildren unless we wake up and start voting for politicians with brain in head instead of beans and gread in heart and mind.
Well, I was brought away for a moment - I just ment to tell you I'm back again to my desk and my computer. I think I'm not only addicted to genealogy, I must be addicted to my PC as well. Almost every day I spend hours working on it; if I'm not replying to genealogy queries from North America, which I receive in bundles, I'm working on my genealogy database or writing up some genealogy files. What a wonderful thing my PC is :-) What did we do before PC? Writing our family tree with pen or pencil page after page, almost impossible to alter or correct anything or keep anything in order. At least I couldn't. Therefore: to whom it may concern: "Thank you for the PC".
