Fortunately I'm not the first person to have this happen to them and both the browser and the website (my email) had saved the draft and I was able to pick up exactly where I left off after the system rebooted. Whew.
So here's a question: you know someone who is getting married (possibly like moi), and you want to buy them a gift. How do you know where the registered? The store possibilities seem nearly endless: Macys, Sears, JCPenney, Target, C&B, Pottery Barn, Younkers, Bloomingdales, Lord and Taylor, Dillards, Kohls, Von Maur, Carsons, just to name a few. Is there a need that needs filling in the marketplace? Some sort of repository of where couples have registered?
Turns out that the need is already filled and filled very well in fact. If you go to The Wedding Channel and type in either party's name to a wedding, up pops the stores in which they are registered. Well done, but there goes my million dollar idea.
