Butterfly World

. You'll probably notice a difference in the blog today ... I've changed it so that you don't see the full posts when you come to the Blog's main page.  Instead, you'll see excerpts of several blog posts.  This way you can see at a glance all the recent posts.  If you want to read the whole thing, you need to click where it says, "Read more ..."  I'm trying it for a while, let me know what you think.  And, if you want to do this to your own Blogger blog, see my article: Blogger Tip: Display Excerpts rather than full Posts

Now about Butterfly World.  I haven't been here in several years, but I remember it being quite beautiful, so I grabbed Mom and we took advantage of a gorgeous Florida day to see the butterflies.  Here are some pictures:

Friends, Genealogy, and more Geeks on Tour Seminars

Our next, and last, gig for this 3 week tour was a one-day workshop at The Great Outdoors.  It was arranged by our RVing friends Connie and Peter Bradish.  It was sponsored by the Genealogical Society of North Brevard County.  We had a mixture of RVers and genealogists, and some both.

RVing Friends

A cool thing about RVing is that you run into friends all over the country. We met Al Hesselbart in Albuquerque a couple years ago, I think we were introduced by Nick Russell. Spent some time with him in Louisville, KY this year, and again in his hometown of Elkhart, Indiana where he gave us a tour of his RV Museum. We also saw him at the Tampa RV Supershow and learned that he was spending the winter in Bushnell, FL - we were in the same town, so we called him up.

Off to Work

Although we say that we're working all the time at our computers.  We don't know what work is anymore!  For the last 3 days, we've had to drive 15 minutes down the road to Florida Grande Resort where we were booked to give our seminars.  We couldn't stay at the resort because they have strict Class A Only rules.  No big deal, they put us up at Paradise Oaks which was very nice.

Magazine Photo Shoot

After leaving the Brooksville rally, we had one extra night before we were booked at our next 'gig'. So, we decided to go to Lazy Days RV Park in Tampa.  When we were there last November, we met the editor of their magazine, Better RVing and she asked us to do an article.  She also wanted to have their photographer take some pictures of us - this seemed like a good time to do that.

Old Faces, New Faces, Good Seminars

Probably the best part about the SEA rally, was having a booth where people could come by and chat.  I loved chatting with Gayle who learned how to blog from us, several years ago, and wanted to brush up on her skills so she would be sure to keep up her blog during two big trips she has planned for later this year.
And Penny who told us that it was our tutorial videos that made it possible for her to go RVing on her own.

Brooksville, FMCA SE Area Rally

A short travel day from Dad's to Brooksville - only about 50 miles.  We got set up after hassling with  insurance paperwork.  Why we need insurance to sell books and DVDs I don't know - but here we do.

We took a little bike ride to check out the place.

 The same airplane looks menacing behind the RVs ...

And, we even got up early enough to watch the Frustrated Maestros this morning.
Now it's off to our booth and our seminars.  We're teaching 4 seminars at this rally:
