Thanksgiving @ Jim & Susanne's

What a great day! It is wonderful to get together for a special feast with those you love, isn't it? An added treat is that Susanne's parents are there to add to the conversation. We truly are blessed to be part of such a loving family. Thank you, Susanne & Jim and everyone who gathered Thursday. Too bad we can't get the whole clan together as we once did, but the sub-groups are just great.

Chris entertained us with a few numbers on the alto sax and Matt and company did an energetic guitar number. My, the talent!

Love, Carol

Copyright Questions

I know we have plenty of lawyers or people with access to lawyers in our family, so maybe some of you can help me with this...

I need to copyright my cards, bookmarks, and bag designs before I try to sell them in any serious capacity. I have the short form sitting here in front of me, but I don't know if I need to fill out and pay separately for each card, bookmark, and bag design, or if I can fill out one form for all the cards at once, or perhaps one form per general design. For example, I have a 4-toned butterfly picture that appears in card, bookmark, and bag form. Would that constitute one design (the card and bag are identical except for size), 2, or 3? I can post graphical examples if that would help.

Perhaps better still, do any of you know of organizations who might be set up to help disabled folk with beginning business management?

You can leave any suggestions or answers as comments on this post. Thanks all.

Email Notification is Live

I didn't really get enough comments to get a sense for whether or not people wanted email notification, but the few I got all supported the idea, so I went for it.

Whenever anyone posts to the home page of the family website, everyone will receive an email to that effect. In addition, whenever someone posts to one of the family subsections of the site, everyone who is a member of that subfamily will receive an email.

If you would like to receive notification when I post to the site on the "Andy" page, please let me know via email or by leaving a comment on the site. The same holds true for those who want to be notified when people outside their section of the family posts to their section of the page. For example, if you want to receive email telling you when someone in the Wilson family posts to the "Mary, Clyde & Family" page, let me know that and I'll add you to the list.

The one minor quirk of this system is that you'll receive email when you yourself post to the site. Redundant, but unavoidable.

You should all be receiving an email about this message, so I'll repeat that a help section is now up on the site which walks through the posting process from beginning to end. Further topics will be covered in the future as I see fit, and upon request. Just let me know what you want.

Thanks everybody.

Call for Help

Can anyone out there take over my card sales for me? With my health the way it is, I stand no chance of doing this, and this is kind of all I have going this Holiday season. This is really the time to get my cards in local shops. If they don't even see them until after Thanksgiving, I can forget about it.

What I basically need is someone to do some phone work in order to get the idea out there and get email addresses to which I can send samples. I have a short list of places to call, but they require timing I just can't manage. The email part is much more viable for me.

Help Section is Up

As you probably noticed, there's a new button at the top of our page. You can view the help section for a step by step tutorial on posting, which will be expanded later on to include other relevant topics. As always, any questions you may have can be emailed to me directly, or left as a comment on this post.

Genealogy Info

Thanks Uncle Joe for sending me all of your Mosmillers genealogy info. It really looks like there's a lot to be discovered there. I do, however, need someone else to put together the data for the Genealogy page on this site. If I devote time to this, I won't be able to do anything else for 6 months or so. Once I have typed data, I'll convert it to the website and get it online, but I need others to take up the challenge on this one. Anyone interested in doing this, or in teaming up with other people to get it done, please leave a comment on this post indicating your interest.
