Which spreadsheet is best? 



Good Morning,  !

Today is Thursday, June 6

Today, in 1944 The D-Day invasion of Europe took place 
on the beaches of Normandy, France. 400,000 Allied 
Canadian, American and British troops were involved.
Thanks to those brave troops we have a Free Enterprise
system, instead of what Hitler wanted.

At the end of the college year, a star football player celebrated the relaxation of team curfew by attending a late night campus party. Soon after arriving, he became captivated by a beautiful young thing and eased into a conversation with her by asking if she met many dates at parties. "Oh, I have a 3.9, so I'm much more attracted to the strong academic types than to dumb party animals," she said. "What's your G.P.A.?" Grinning from ear to ear, the jock boasted, "I get about 27 in the city and 38 on the highway."

As a distinguished matron approached the church entrance, a little boy stepped aside and held the door for her. "What a polite little doorman," she said as she walked through. "Is there a tip involved?" "Oh, no," answered the young man. "My mother taught me never to be good for money, but always to be good for nothing."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Gerardo Perez, 50, Chicago, Ill Jailed for Smashing Kitten To Death When Boyfriend Tried To Break Off Relationship Reported by The Weekly Vice Anaeli DeJesus, a 23-year-old Massachusetts bonehead, was jailed Thursday after she allegedly killed a 6-week-old kitten because her boyfriend tried to break up with her. According to Lawrence police, officers were dispatched to the home of Roberto Jordan after receiving a report that a 6-week-old kitten had been killed during an argument between Jordan and his girlfriend, Anaeli DeJesus. Investigators say DeJesus became angry when Jordan attempted to end their relationship. In retaliation, DeJesus picked up a 6-week-old kitten and violently smashed it against a wall. The kitten dropped to the floor and shook until it passed away. DeJesus then packed up the couple's dog, various recording equipment, a computer and several video games before fleeing to a residence on Gale St. When officers arrived at the Gale St. residence and asked DeJesus if she knew why they were there, DeJesus allegedly told them it was because she had killed a kitten. DeJesus and Jordan share a 1-year-old child together and DeJesus is now pregnant with their second baby. DeJesus was booked into jail and charged with animal cruelty. Tech Support Pits From: Lilly Re: Spreadsheets Dear Webby Which spreadsheet do you recommend? Everybody seems fanatic about their favorite, but they can't explain why. Hope you can! Lilly Dear Lilly The big two are Quattro from Corell Office (used to be Word perfect office and before that Borland Quattro), and Microsoft Excel. Less popular and not quite as good is Open Office Calc and the Google Docs Online Spreadsheets. Quattro and Calc will pick up spreadsheets started by other formats. Excel will pick up a few formats. The Google Online Spreadsheet is handy, if you need access to a VERY BASIC spreadsheet from different locatons and don't want to be bothered with up and downloading it into different machines. However, it is still VERY limited. Forget fancy graphs or formatting or layered spreadsheets. They are free. Also free is Open Office Calc. Calc is very popular in Europe and Asia, and is slowly getting to be very close to Microsoft Excel. You can do most spreadsheet work with Calc, and it is free. Excel has been battling with Quattro since the 80's. In the 2000's they diverged slightly, with Excel focusing on entry level ease of use, and Quattro remaining the heavy duty spreadsheet for the corporate office. That does not mean Quattro is difficult to use. It just goes further into complicated or difficult stuff. Both have layered spredsheets since the mid 90's. You can for example have separate spreadsheets for each month in layers, and then a top layer,where you pull results from each month. That "Drilling Down" might not be necessary for what you want to do, but it is handly to have. For fancy graphs Quattro goes a bit further. You can, though, use a simple Excel spreadsheeet for accumulating data, then import that into Quattro for the corporate analysis stuff and fancy presentation graphs. That seems to be the norm in business in North America, however, i have never understood, why they don't use Calc for the entry level and data input, like they do in Europe and Asia. If you want a reasonably good but free spreadsheet, get Open Office. Calc is included. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Grass Stain Remover For a cheap grass stain remover that truly works, combine equal portions of white vinegar, liquid dish washing soap, and water. Shake well and work the solution into the spot. Let stand a few minutes and then launder as usual. It also works on fruit or beverage stains. This got all of the grass stains out of my son's light colored pants. I will never buy expensive stain removers again!

An elderly couple, Marty and Helen, along with some friends agreed to try a Thai Restaurant. While looking at the menu, Helen noticed her husband looking at the vegetarian section of the menu. "What would you like Marty?" she asked. "I'm looking at this Eggplant Spicy dish." He replied. "Marty, you like meat and potatoes. You won't like that dish." Helen said. "What do you know," answered Marty, "I'm getting it." "Marty, I'm telling' you, you are a meat and potatoes kind of guy. You won't like it!" Helen exclaimed. "I'm getting it and that is the last word!" says Marty. A short while later the meals arrive at the table. Marty looks down and his dish and says to Helen, "Where are my eggs?"

An airliner is coming into land at an airport obscured by fog. Visibility is practically nil, the radar system is on the blink, so the pilot has to land on wits alone. "Flaps, check," he says to the co-pilot, "Landing Gear, check. Altitude, check. Right, we're going in. HANG ON!" The plane lands and comes to a screeching, grinding halt, just short of the edge of the runway. "Holy Cow!" exclaims the pilot, "This must be the shortest runway I've ever landed on!" The co-pilot looks left and right and says "Yeah, and about the widest, too."

Two rednecks were driving a semi down a road when they came to a viaduct. The sign said 10 feet zero inches, so they got out to measure their truck. Unfortunately, the truck was just over 11 feet high. They didn't know what to do, when finally one of them looked both directions and said, "I don't see any cops, let's go for it!"
