On Thursday 10th, date of my last post, my grandmother died at 9h10 PM in the hospital. I didn't work on Friday due to the funeral and burial, and mainly because I was (and still am) very sad.

Since Thursday, it is very cold here in Sao Paulo. We have a dry winter, so, even though the mininum temperatures are not that low, we end up suffering a lot with them. And our houses are not prepared for winter (no heater and window sealing, for example), so it is a tough time. Fortunately we don't have many days like these ones in a year.

Now I am trying to clear out my mind to move on. First task, I have to scan many old photos I found out at my gradma's room.

Very interesting the GRAMPS program to build a family tree. It is a very good alternative to Windows program, although there are some points to improve. I build one from some data I had already collected, and made it available at here. I still want to get data like missing birth dates and, maybe, pictures from most living people.
