In The News This Month...
So is everyone still stuffed from all that eating at Christmas? It's amazing how much food one will eat during the holidays and think nothing of it. But eat that much any other time of the year, and people think you are a pig. Oh well, that's just part of the holidays, I guess!

Well, here in the Robson Valley we had a green Christmas, which is very rare. So rare in fact, that a local farmer said McBride hasn't had a green Christmas since the early 1960's. But now, as I look out my window, I see a complete white - out. It's been snowing almost non - stop since Monday. Somebody told me today it's supposed to warm up enough to bring rain instead of snow. That's going to make a big mess! I'm not a big fan of snow, but I sure don't want rain at this point! But anyways, the kids are sure enjoying the snow, making snow forts and sliding down the big piles of snow created by the graders. At least they're having fun.

Now that tax season is slowly approaching, many people panic at the fact that their books are not in order and don't know what to do to get ready for the ACCOUNTANT. Worry no more! I can get your books in order for you without you losing sleep over it. My rates are extremely reasonable and confidentiality is guaranteed.

That's that. Thanks for reading!

Did You Know...

Electric cars were introduced in 1896 and by the end of the century almost 50% of motorcars worldwide were electric.

Yet, by 1905 80% of cars were petrol driven and by 1920 the electric car was, well, almost history.

Excel Tip: Column and Row AutoFit

Have you ever been working in MS Excel and found yourself spending all kinds of extra time trying to manually adjust column width or row heights? Or are you one of the many people who simply skip a column whenever text gets too long?

One of the many solutions to these time - consuming problems is AutoFit.

It's a tool in MS Excel that will automatically adjust a column width or row height to accommodate the longest piece of data. Here's how:

The first thing you need to do is to figure out which area(s) you need to AutoFit. If you know you will need to adjust several columns or rows then try to enter as much of the data as possible before AutoFitting. Once your decision(s) have been made you're ready to begin by highlighting the data to be accommodated. You have some options here.

First, highlight the entire column(s) or row(s) or the specific cell(s) you want to adjust. Now you're ready to AutoFit.

From the Format menu, you need to choose either column or row, depending on what you're trying to AutoFit. Slide your mouse pointer over your choice and you'll find a sub - menu pops up. The second choice on each sub - menu is AutoFit or AutoFit Selection. Select AutoFit and your row height or column width will increase to fit the largest piece of highlighted data, depending on which sub - menu you went into.

You should now notice that all the data you selected in your highlight fits within one cell. Obviously it isn't a great time saver if you've got a small worksheet or small data. However, for those large worksheets, this is truly an awesome trick when you're working with long text (such as column titles).

Internet Explorer Tip: Revisiting Web Pages Faster

Do you have so many Favourites that you can't quickly go to the ones you use most often and wish there was a faster way to revisit them?

IE provides the ultimate in shortcut solutions called "Links." To see the Links bar, right - click any empty area within the menu or navigation bars and click Links so it's checked.

Go to the web page you want to shortcut. Drag the IE icon in the address field (the blue E) to the Links bar. The screen will then refresh showing your new shortcut with its default title.

Now, anytime you want to visit that page from a different page, just click that link. Note: unlike Favourites, this page will open in the same window and not a new one.

Now, assuming that you want to see as many links as possible without first clicking, right - click on your new entry and select Rename or Properties / General tab. Type the shortest acronym or abbreviations that you will remember. The screen will refresh again displaying your new title.

Duplicate until you have a link to as many pages as you want. Then, you can reorder them by simply dragging them within the Links bar and releasing when the | (vertical beam) appears in the desired location. You can even drag links from beyond the >> to the viewable Links area; however, this will usually force the right - most link to fall beyond the >>.

To increase the Links bar length, right click on "Links" and make sure "Lock the Toolbars" is not checked and then drag "Links" to its own full line beneath the menu and / or navigation bar. If you need even more space and don't mind an extra click, you can save links within a folder using Windows Explorer. I find this preferable to clicking >> to see all my links because I can find any link more qucikly. You can also use grouping instead of putting your links on an extra line, which will reduce vertical scrolling.
