Week in Review, 22 October 2011
Antique Firearms Sale Project. Results are in: less spectacular that the glittering promises. Oh, well. Jim reminds me he made the collection as a history buff, not as an investor. Spent Wednesday reviewing item by item, updating my spreadsheet, thinking about lessons learned.
"Tribe of the Breakaway Beads" Project. Revisions "done" (still needs a final read-through in the heavily revised parts). Opened the book project at Createspace for printing via Amazon. Assigned the ISBN, so it's feeling like a real book.
Family History Project. Researched Holton family history for nieces and their mom. I think I've gone about as far as I can go without additional data. Ordered Family Tree Maker 2012.
Drum & Bugle Corps Video Project. Back-burnered till I'm done with "Breakaway Beads." It won't be that hard, but I'll need a big chunk of time to sink into it.
Reading (looking into the hidden corners of Christianity)
Desire of the Everlasting Hills: The World Before and After Jesus by Thomas Cahill
The Secret Teachings of All Ages by Manly P. Hall, published in 1928. Big fat reference book picked up at B&N.
Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad -- listening to Audible version while I do yoga.
