A Mark Update

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, but I'm having some computer problems.

Remember a while back I mentioned that I've been engrossed in this whole Genealogy thing? Well, I ran into a small problem a couple days ago.

Seems my computer decided to dump all my research. That would be a 29 tab Excel spreadsheet I've been amassing for the last three months.

Needless to say I came close to using a hammer on this computer BECAUSE that was all it dumped.

It could have looked like this

So now I'm in the process of rebuilding all my backup. My wife is also re-installing Windows 10 because my computer is just plain screwed up. I have no idea what that will bring. Fortunately we have all out files on an external drive so I should be OK. Don't want to lose my score on a Solitaire game called Adelaide. I'm currently at 976 wins with zero, none, 0 loses. That would really piss me off.
So, never fear, I am going fishing. It looks like Saturday because it was raining again this morning and then the wind (from the North which is usually high) is supposed to start blowing this afternoon and all day tomorrow to the tune of 25 to 30 mph. Makes for crappy fishing so I'll wait for Saturday and cruise out somewhere.

Lake would have looked like this

Thanks for being patient.

Stay tuned.

    I would be in trouble if my hard drive went out---need to get an external hard drive like you have. I agree wind is the big enemy when fishing.

  2. I have been thinking about backing up my stuff for some time, you may have given me the push I need.

  3. Genealogy is just amazing. I've found long lost relatives I never knew I had. Just store your information on
