You must be here for a reason!
Here you will be able to learn a little bit about me both professionally and personally
I don't have such an ego that I want to tell you a lot about myself but I have published a fair amount of detail here about my family tree and I know that other researchers have found this useful
I try to keep the Family Tree as up to date as possible here rather than bothering with sites like Ancestry and Genes Reunited mostly because I can retain control over how my data is presented
We also saw Sandi Toksvig at the same venue the week before.
The month was closed out with another visit to Wembley for a second NFL game. This time it was Jacksonville Jaguars "hosting" the San Francisco 49'ers.
If you were a Jaguars fan then this was a painful game to watch
A busy month rounded off nicely by our last week of holiday used up going to Crete. I had a short night on the last Sunday. We got home at about 3am Sunday morning but was up and off to Wembley to see the Minnesota Vikings take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in one of the NFL's International Series games. The game itself was thrilling with the final score only really being made certain in the final few seconds.
I was cheering on the Vikings personally as I had lived in Minneapolis when I was a little lad of 6 or 7 and my Dad worked for 3M.
This was our second stay at the Village Heights Golf Resort at Ano Hersinossos and it was again a wonderful relaxing break in a pleasant hotel and location
Personally I dreaded the flights there and back as they were via Easyjet and I have not had terrific experiences with them in the past. This time around though the flights in both directions were faultless. In fact the flight out was one of the easiest and most comfortable flights that I can recall.
Whilst my colleague was on holiday I had to hold the fort alone in the office. Of course things were going wrong all over the place in ways not experienced before. We had things like our batch schedules running out of sequence, database lock-outs and god knows what else happening on the normal run of the mill jobs.
On top of that I had to write queries that were looking to references to Bull-Fighting on our website pages. So a word search in 12 different languages.
The Ash tree at the front of our property was about 28m high and getting very close to the house. Also its branches were over-hanging the school playing field. Unfortunately it was old and had out grown its environment and was quite rotten in parts. It had to come down before it fell down. That might have been a few years away but we took the view it was better done now rather than falling to bits gradually.
Not sure I can make her a Swansea City fan but at least she has a Cybil Swan to look over her.

Okay, I am trying to teach myself how to play and I am failing - I make an awful racket and so will be looking for a teacher when I have some spare cash.
