Thank you Internet

Holy crap, when I turned on my laptop--where I do EVERYTHING, including log on for work--I got this weird message "The User Profile Service failed the logon.  User Profile cannot be loaded."  It wouldn't let me past the log on screen.  I had a mini-freak out and then googled the error message on my iPhone.  It pulled up all these forum posts with fairly daunting instructions with one even warning that "one should be fairly handy with computers" to correct this, which I'd say I'm fairly UN-handy computer-wise beyond "reboot".  Had another mini-freak out.

Thankfully, I scrolled the search results and found this YouTube video:

Watching this video made it seem very doable and I recognized the steps that were outlined in a number of forum responses.  I totally followed the steps with my iPhone, not really knowing what I was doing and hoping I was doing the correct thing, and it totally worked.

So grateful for the internet and to those who post cool and helpful information and videos.

Thank you Kentucky and UConn

Though I was really rooting for the Spartans to go all the way, I will gratefully take winning my March Madness pool this way. I had needed Florida and Wisconsin to lose to keep my lead and I was very pleasantly impressed to see UConn and Kentucky pull out their wins, respectively.

Because none of us were astute enough to see the Huskies or the Wildcats heading into the Championship game it was great to know I won this pool after the Final Four played out.

My sincere congratulations to Kentucky and UConn!
