Mobile Monday - What to do with a week off

Every year I take a week of annual leave for my birthday.  Some years I need it more than others, such as this year.  After all, I did turn 40 and that requires some reflection.

Oddly enough, my trepidation about getting older didn't stop me from doing a little graveyard research.

One of the joys of modern technology is that, even though I didn't plan ahead and take my camera, my Blackberry was all the camera I needed to capture images of tombstones.

Can't get the information clearly with a picture?  No worries, I texted the name, birth date, and death date to my email address.  Another option would have been to use the address/contacts feature and store the information.


  1. I usually take off the day of my birthday but I must admit I like the idea of taking off a week..

  2. I use my Blackberry at cemeteries as well. If I'm recording the entire cemetery - using the spreadsheets to go program works wonderfully. My only complaint is that I wish that the camera was a bit better - I guess that will come in time.

    Happy Birthday.
