Limited Posts for Next Week or So

The last week or so has been marked by a degree of havoc, due to illness initially and followed up with what was the equivalent of a category 1 or 2 cyclone, which crossed the coast just to the north of where I live. There has been plenty of damage, flooding and extended periods of power outages across a very wide region. What this will mean for my Blogs is that there will be very limited posts over the next week or so. Reasonably normal service will be returned as soon as that is possible.

Scannable

The link below is to an article that takes a look at Evernote’s latest app – Scannable. This app is great for scanning articles and documents into Evernote and thereby archiving them for future reference. I’m sure the usefulness of such an app is apparent to all, especially Evernote users and those needing to grab some document of interest to family history.
