AYWalton: Howdy alt, bbenn, bearnut2, Daviss, hey vicjorob!!!! good to see you all.
bearnut2: On my homestead info, it mentions that my 2nd grgrandfather purchased the land from someone--I thought with a homestead you didn't purchase it
bbenn: Hi AYWalton! Thanks for mentioning the show of your podcast.
bearnut2: hey AYWalton
alt: Hello bbenn & AYWalton .. good to see both of you.
vicjorob: Alt- looks like the Henry Liggens from your site is the same as the Henry living in the 1880 household with my Susan Stewart and what appears to be her siblings
bbenn: Thanks interesting! Generally the land is owned by the Federal Govt.
alt: Is that right vicjorob!!!!!!
vicjorob: Right back at ya Ang
bbenn: Good to see you alt!
bearnut2: Thats what i was thinking but it says that he bought the land from a man named Allen Jenkins wow vicjorob! looks like you just found a "cousin"! lol
bbenn: Let me take a look at the file. Allen Jenkins could have been the register of claims.
bearnut2: maybe he bought it but it wasn't Jenkins to sell? ok...will do
bbenn: Technically, they are purchasing the land with a small filing fee.
bearnut2: Thats what I thought and thats why i was confused lol

vkn: ohh ok
vicjorob: Yes I have the Nook color. I rooted it with an SD card so it runs as a full android tablet.
AYWalton: I like that idea, vicjorob! I love having something lightweight, too!
bearnut2: yep XDA forums are wonderful
AYWalton: how long does the battery last.
AYWalton: vkn where are you finding those images?
vicjorob: VJR- what does Evernote have to do with live chat or dies ut? I mean does it?
vkn: my ipad battery is 10 hours average
bearnut2: Mine is manualnootered so it runs both native BNN software and android
vicjorob: Bear- mine exactly. I use the cyanogen mod 7 ad card
bearnut2: I don't run it all the time so I'm not sure how long it will last but I only charge it every couple of days or so
vkn: On my puter AYW
bearnut2: vicjorob--I was thinking of returning to stock and going to a card sorry we're leaving you out Daviss lol
AYWalton: Evernote is a way of capturing notes from online sources.
vkn: Have about 500 photos. Daughter has just finished organizing them by events. The recent ones are in an album called the movement
AYWalton: I had to watch the webinar again to appreciate the features. your daughter is a gem for doing that!
vicjorob: Good idea. Works great. I get apps from both the Amazon marketplace and the Droid market
Daviss: lol bearnut2 thats alright. I was just thinking that I never learned to operate my vcr
vkn: I went looking for the webinar and it never popped up AYW
bearnut2: AYW where is that webinar
AYWalton: bearnut2 what was it you said that lasted 8-10hours? A nook, or tablet?
vkn: lol @ daviss
AYWalton: Oh I found it let me get the URL for you again.

AYWalton: Here you are, vkn: http://vimeo.com/28948194 that is the only reason I hesitate to rush to Kindle Fire.
alt: vkn, I have over 900 photos on my site in labeled albums.. family, census, military, events, etc.... very easy to uplaod.
AYWalton: My Kindle stays charge for an entire month!!!
vkn: Thanx ayw muchly
AYWalton: can't beat that! I just have to remember where I put the power cord when it's time to charge. you are welcome vkn!

AYWalton: good idea, bearnut2.
bearnut2: thanks for the link AYWalton
AYWalton: I have so much stuff that I have to charge at night.
AYWalton: cordless phones, cell phones, (when I can remember where I put them.) lol
vkn: Evernote is available from ALL devices
bearnut2: I keep everything in the same place otherwise I WILL lose it! I learned that the HARD way lol
vkn: ne and it appears on all Have to sync periodically
AYWalton: keeping things charged, I can imagine in the future will become amusing to the next generation. Like young folks today cannot imagine the old rotary phones, or the old party lines. I hear ya, bearnut2
bearnut2: vkn yep I access through my home computer and nook. I did have it on my phone but took it off because I was running low on space and I usually have my nook with me anyway
AYWalton: Daviss that was a great blog post today. is the nook light weight bearnut2?
Daviss: thank you AYWalton lol
bearnut2: lol AYW I'll say! We were laughing the other day at some of the terms we still use from the "old days"...
vkn: But also ayw the poster who asked for help transcribing the pension file could not read cursive lol
bearnut2: yeah it is for me. I carry it around in my purse.
AYWalton: I almost typed "you're kidding, right?" to the poster, but then realized he probably was having a hard time.
vicjorob: Okay I must have missed it. What is the name of bearnut2's blog and bbenn's radio program?
AYWalton: so I stayed nice.
vkn: So that is young cause it be perfectly clear to me
AYWalton: I was referring to Daviss's blog: Mariah's Zephyr. http://mariahszepher.blogspot.com/2011/12/big-time-texan-sticking-to-story.html
bearnut2: I think that is Daviss' blog
vicjorob: Got it. Thanks. Was looking around it earlier. Nice.
bearnut2: stuff like "Hang on..." when you're on the phone (from the days when you couldn't take the phone with you) lol Or "so-n-so has a new album out" kids today don't even know what an album or record its is
vicjorob: Bear-so true! As to the cursive, kids aren't being taught that at all.
AYWalton: bbenn's radio show is called, National Archives and Beyond.
Daviss: or to tell time
vicjorob: Kids don't know about the flip side, either
bearnut2: or I often say "I need to tape that show" lol
alt: that's an amazing statement vkn..... can't read cursive writing... WOW!!!!
AYWalton: Kind of hard to find her current show, because it was once part of Antoinette's show. She is now producing it on her own.
bearnut2: Hang on I'll get a link...
alt: vicjorob .. google bernice bennett talk radio
AYWalton: I think they still make albums--the big ones for promotional purposes.
vicjorob: Alt thanks
AYWalton: I notice on Late night tv, Jay Leno holds up a huge old time album size image of a musician's latest album when he has them on as a guest.
alt: and once there you'll see here archived programs and her upcoming programs
AYWalton: I miss the big size.
Daviss: I think you can get Diamond needles too but they cost a arm and a leg
AYWalton: I loved reading the covers! I bet they do, Daviss. Does anyone remember the Santana Abraxas cover?
bearnut2: Try this: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/search/bernice-bennett/
AYWalton: that was a wild image. and there was the one with the image and the human form embedded into it. amazing art from some of the old album covers especially in the 70s!
Daviss: not sure AYWalton
AYWalton: It was full of odd details (once I got over the shock of the nude woman.) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SantanaAbraxas.jpg
vkn: AYW that was after my time lol My time be Nat King Cole Ella Fitzgerald and so on
bearnut2: wow! hadn't seen that one
AYWalton: in those days, it was usually the photo of the artists prior to that.
Daviss: oh yes, now I remember AYWalton
AYWalton: ALTHOUGH in the early days of "cross over" (late 50s) they often would not put a black artist on the cover.
bearnut2: with the strategically placed bird lol
vicjorob: Alt- is the name of her show your ancestors stories?

AYWalton: I often found, back in the 60s that album covers provided the few glimpese up close of black artists.
Daviss: now that one is nice AYWalton
AYWalton: we did not have magazines that featured colored images of them.
vicjorob: Later all.
AYWalton: so albums provided that outlet quite often.
