Now I couldn't deal with that at all!  Far too complicated!  For me that would make things harder to find than the huge muddled list I had in the first place - still, to each his or her own!

Problem is that the 'drop downs' got so long I had to search for them.  I set a main OLD WEATHER folder and then inside folders for 'people searching sites' - 'ship searching sites' - 'maps and landmarks' - FORUM!! ;) - 'general stuff' - 'terms and abbreviations, etc.'

It's helped somewhat!

But I WILL admit that SOME of my obsession addiction efforts came from 38 years of teaching Middle School Science and trying to keep myself AND them organised while working with 165 10 - 11, year olds!! ::)

I think I need a break from U.S.S. Yorktown's 1890 log-books.

This morning I needed to date and sign a request-form to send to my bank.
Instead of 2013 I put down 1890 for the year. :(

Oops. ;D

Well, I have done something I can't believe I've done - I heard on the radio today that Prince Harry would be at Arlington National Cemetery to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns...so what did I do?  I called the British Embassy here in DC to remind them that there are British RN & Marines buried at Arlington and that he might want to pay his respects to them.  My conscience would not leave me alone until I called.

Arg...  ::) 

Where is the rehab facility?

Forget it - the addiction is too strong - we'll all just have to go cold turkey when the logs run out in 50 years time  ;D

Just pathetic - my first thought after hearing that story was not "Oh, that's nice. He wants to honor our fallen." No, my first thought was "Hey, what about the sailors and marine from the Warrior?"

If there are 50 years worth of work to do, at least I won't have to worry about going cold turkey  :P

Truthfully it's lovely that you do think of them - it's all too easy to forget those who are gone.  :-[
