but not lunch date day - Sweet Geek has a violin lesson today at lunch. :grin: All the help he can get....actually, he's NOT that bad. In fact, for a beginner, he's really good - we'll see how it progresses. The kids...not so much. :ahem:

The pool was perfect last night - the perfect temp when compared to the weather. It was *wonderful*.

Scottish Monkey #1 is DONE, and #2 is begun. Just finished the cuff and am on the first pattern repeat....Monkey goes fast. And looks cool. It'll never be my "go-to" sock pattern - I like it, but not enough to have a drawer full - but it's a nice, quick, easy pattern to whip out.

Not much else to report......


Oh, wait - anyone have any experience with Open Office? They have a Mac version, it's FREE, and they claim they can read/write XL and WP files. Any advice?

I've got Open Office on the PC at home. It does save M$ Word and Excel formats. There are some differences in the menus and keyboard shortcuts, and the "look and feel" is a bit different. But yea, the same file can be opened edited and saved by both M$ and OO.

ooh! Thank you! Can it save Word Perfect files, too? We use that at work, and my "business" cards (yarn tags, etc) are all WP format. I *could* change 'em if I have to...but I'd rather not. I'm a bit lazy...:lol:

According to the FAQ:
Current versions of OpenOffice.org will open WordPerfect files. However, you cannot save to WordPerfect formats from OpenOffice.org

Looks like WP can open .txt or .doc files, so I should be good. Thanks - think I'll download Open Office tonight (depending on my Geek, of course. :lol:)
