A major hard drive crash this month! If I had it to do over again, there are a lot of smart things I would do that I didn't do after getting my latest computer. I had too much trust in Carbonite - which did its job, by the way - but what good is a backup when you can't even get into your computer to back files up?!? No, I hadn't made a repair disc. Sheesh. So here it is, 15 days later and I'm still not back to "normal." Everything seems to be fine except my e-mail program, which I use the most of all.

I am back to Parks research, both for my line and for Cousin Carol's line through our DNA connection. But first I must wait for my reformatted hard drive. A botched attempt to add some incorrect version software seems to have set off a firestorm, possibly with other issues involved, and now I will need to reload programs and get all my data from backup. This is not my favorite thing to do!
