Follow Friday: Two Weeks Worth of Favorite Finds

I have had a very busy couple of weeks.  We took a great vacation around Arizona and hit many National Parks – so much fun!!  I’m currently taking a spouses’ leadership development course (ie. how to be a Sergeant Major’s wife) which is every night from 5-10 for a couple of weeks.  It has been making for some long days.  Oh, and I’m going to be walking my first marathon this weekend – the Bataan Memorial Death March at White Sands Missile Range.  Whew!!

Before I go on to my favorite posts, I want to mention that Google Friend Connect is no longer working with WordPress blogs.  And I have a WordPress blog.  That means that if you had me in your reader through this service, then I’m no longer there. 🙁  Please add me again!!

On to some of my favorite finds…

  • Never Make Love in a Buggy.  Sounds like good advice.  I’d never heard of this little ditty before, which was posted over at A Hundred Years Ago. 🙂
  •  I’m excited about the new series premiering this weekend on PBS – Finding Your Roots.  If only I was going to be at home when it aired.  I wonder if it will be available online afterwards.  I will have to check and see.
  • I was interested to see the new genealogy textbooks for kids by Jennifer Holik available from Generations.  I would love to try them out with my own kids in our homeschool and I’ve often thought that I might like to teach a family history class in our homeschool co-op.   It would be nice to have a textbook to use in class rather than coming up with my own materials.  I think it’s so important to include family history along with world history in a child’s education.
  • There are some interesting GeneaWebinars coming up this week.  I would really like to take the one entitled Juggling Complex Projects While Staying on Track and maybe The Pursuit from Genealogy Hobbyist to Professional.
  • I love seeing how much places have changed (or stayed the same over years).  Karen at Ancestor Soup posted an old and new house picture on her blog.
  • I have a lot of ancestors of Irish descent, so I found Seeking the Flock of St. Patrick over at Catholic Gene to be a very informative post!
  • Who Do You Think You Are? is on tonight!  I love Helen Hunt, so I’m looking forward to this episode.
  • There won’t be any Geneabloggers radio tonight – taking a week off for spring break.  Good, because it will give me a chance to get caught up on my podcasts. 🙂
  • The Masterpiece over at Family Archaeologist is a great read.
  • A very happy blogiversary to Debi Austen over at Who Knew?  Love the birthday cake pictures. 🙂
