Winter 2010 GB Games--ORGANIZATION DAY

I am running out of time to devote to the Olympic challenges and have left the two that need the most work. Over the past several days, in between family responsibilities, I was able to spend time working on the Organize Your Research event.

I have been scanning photos and documents, making new folders and moving files and photos into them...all on my external hard drive. Frankly, I have done quite a bit of scanning work on most of my lines; however, I was able to find a sizeable hole in several of my Frederick files that needed work.

This will probably complete my work on the GB Winter Games unless I can find some free time Friday morning to work on one or two more tasks.
