Top 10 Ways to Get Your Creative Juices Flowing

This can be done no matter what is is you do or plan on doing. My area is what this blog is all about~GENEALOGY and doing the 10 things listed in this article can work in other areas of my life, as a Grandma, as a worker, as a women, ...the list can go on.
Top 10 Ways to Get Your Creative Juices Flowing

1) Taking time off. Well, I do have two days off in a row from my job. I catch up on sleep the first day, then catch up on my DVD movie collection, or read, mostly spending time on the computer surfing away with out the water, so to speak.

2) Getting Sleep ~a little or alot? Making sure my alarm is set, I just lay down once the body starts nodding off when and what ever I may be doing. But sometimes this poses a bit of a problem when there is so much need to get done or just can't seem to fall into the zzzz state of mind when hitting the pillow.

3) Mid-thought Stopping~ not always an easy thing to master, but gotta try. Can't let the mind go rambling on in all directions. FOCUS

4) Exercise for the Body ~does some good. I think I do my share of exercise on a daily bases...I have to walk the mile to work and back, walk the several block to catch a bus to go where ever it is I want to head out to my vehicle of choice is the GOD given two feet ...

5) Morning Routine ~changing of....sometimes easier said than done, this is when I do my best research work...

6) STAYING Motivated, I like the idea of setting up a file for your desktop for side projects This may be of some help to organizing for me now ...

7) NOT Stressing About Being Truly Original
Nothing is original
Every new idea is just a mashup or a remix of previous ideas

8) Finding New Ways of doing Old Things is just another way of Thinking Inside the Box or just
building on those already-useful ideas in a whole new way

9) Set Weird Rules to encourage creativity so the need to set some weirder rules.

10) PLANNING AHEAD for everything , there is a reason...but to get someing done, you have to take control and make it happen.Write it down , map it out, self brain storm...

Mystery of Grandma Winnie's middle name has now been....

Well finally!  Got the proof of grandma's mysterious middle name.  Got the only document so far which has it listed as .....GANNITA...actually I thought it was Guannita, with the G sounding more like a J...BUT, now we have the middle name.
Grandma was married, with Dad being around 10 yrs old and Aunt Jodie about 6 or 7 yrs old.  I knew they had lived in Michigan, but now here is another city to research for the Sargent family.  Grandma applied for the Social Security number just about 2 months after turning 28.  And at the time was unemployed.

Already knew grandma's father's middle name was Turner, but now there is the question of her mother's first name...has it here as Mayne ....most records have her as Maymie...or some spelling close to it.

Now , after talking with one of my cousins I was told that Aunt Jodie was a little upset after grandma died when she couldn't find any thing in writing which would show grandma's middle this is for you aunt Jodie.
