Re: HELP!!! Problem with MS Word

In Electronics Talk 1425584311.493

Also, Wordpad is NOT going to reopen her documents with every single bit of formatting or any other special feature of MS Word that she may have used, intact. Wordpad is fine if she just wants to recover the raw words, but when I suggested LibreOffice, I assumed she wanted to open her docs having them look and behave just as they did in Office.

Re: O/T Are you naturally an organized person or do you have to work at it...

I am a naturally organized person AND I have to slave at it because I am marrid to the world's biggest slob and procrastinator. ;) Continue Reading

 

Re: HELP!!! Problem with MS Word

Docs girl, this is very simple to fix in the short term. Go online and find LibreOffice. Only get it from their site, nowhere else please. Install that program. It is a Microsoft Office replacement, and a very good one. It is what I had to use when my mom had to get a new computer and all her docs were in a very old Microsoft Works format. Despite her having a brand new Office package on her new computer, the new Office could not open its own older doc versions. Although I am highly computer literate and a Microsoft user and general supporter, I do not have time for nonsense, so I promptly in... Continue Reading

 

Re: Brown Mascara

In Beauty Banter 1425546310.147

True, gorgeous brown mascaras can be found at a site called Just For Redheads. I stumbled onto this site several years ago when I was searching the Internet high and low for brown mascaras, because I too have always looked awful in black or brown/black. They just never looked right on me in the daytime. They have several types, but the mascara I get from JFR also comes with a lash comb attached in the cap, which is so handy and a very nice touch. I usually get ginger brown, and I am a true brunette. The quality is outstanding too. No flaking under my eyes, and a very soft feel to the lashes a... Continue Reading

 

Re: Possible Lyme Cure?

You have to be careful with Claritin. It can be bad for men because it negatively affects the prostate, and although we women don't have that particular piece of anatomy, when I took Claritin, I felt like I had a bladder infection every time. It was weird. Continue Reading

 

Re: Do you highlight lines to camouflage?

In Beauty Banter 1425317961.043

I heard Laura Geller mention something about that just this morning. She was talking about using her baked vanilla highlighter to do it. Of course, a light hand with good blending would be needed, other wise we would look like we had war paint on instead! ;) Continue Reading

So how long would I could brown rice for and what proportions of water to rice should I try? This sounds like a fun idea. Continue Reading

They did you a favor by pulling it from inventory - there are better products out there. They are in stores like WalMart and Kohls, so take a look in person. As for the slow cooker function, bung up the hole. Just put some tin foil or paper towel in it. I alway... Continue Reading

On 2/24/2015 aroc34 said: I have a Nesco. It roasts and does slow cooking. The Q does offer this in a couple of different sizes. Other vendors also carry it. "Google" it and see if this might be the ticket for you. I like its versatility. My model is the 18 Qt. capacity in red with the porcelain enamel insert which I prefer to any non stick. If you do purchase one be sure to follow the directions that come with it before using so that you get rid of the materials around the heating element that need to "burn off" or "cure." Aroc34, thanks so very much! I love the idea of a porcelain insert! ... Continue Reading

I would not have thought about that kind of problem at all! Thanks so much! Continue Reading
