Tabs Are Lost on MS Excel 2007! Find Missing Tabs Here

Yeah! When I moved from an older version of Microsoft Excel to MS Excel 2007 I suddenly found that all of my tabs from the older Excel program were now missing on 2007.

This, of course, was bothersome.  I probably have created hundreds of Excel Spreadsheets for business and personal use and now all the tabs are gone.  Will I have to recreate entire pages and spreadsheets on Excel?  How will I find my missing tabs.

Do not panic. Anyone can get their lost tab or tabs back.  Your tabbed spreadsheets are still there, you just need to make them visible.  The interesting part about this recovery is that it is so easy to do, yet it really isn't an intuitive process, at least for a casual Excel user.

I wrote an article on getting that lost tab or tabs back.  You'll need to use the cascade command on Excel, which I can teach you to find real easy.  Check out the article. I linked it below.

How Does Printing on Microsoft Office 2007 Differ From Older Versions?

As with any change to Microsoft software, there  are some basic changes to get used to.  I noticed this when I went to print a word document for the first time on MS Office 2007.

The changes are mostly cosmetic. In other words, I find the look and layout of the program to take more getting used to than the actual process of printing (to which there are some differences as well :-)

For example, you might find it tough to locate the old "File" command at the top of the screen. The file command is still there, it just isn't in plain site as it used to be.

Printing on MS office 2007 is easy to do, I wrote an article on the topic called How to Print on Microsoft Office 2007.  Check it out.

Why You Want to Keep Local Streams of Water Clean

There are many reasons to keep your local waterways clean.  First, of course, is that it is quite possible that any particular body of water is used for drinking purposes. Sure, the water goes through various stages of treatment and cleaning before actually making it out of your faucet, but you still want the water to be as fresh and uncontaminated as possible from the start.

Another, big but less obvious reason, is for environmental concerns.  Every body of water, even the smallest of pools or streams supports a local ecosystem or micro-environment. Contaminate that particular body of water and you alter the ecosystem in that environment. Anytime you introduce a new organism through pollution, or kill off an organism through pollution you create a domino effect of problems.

For example, maybe pollution kills off a certain creature that kills termites.  With that creature gone, the termite population in that area increases dramatically. This could cause issues with the local lumber, etc.  Worse yet, at least for us, the termites might invade our homes more easily.  You get the point?  Regardless if you are a member of Greenpeace or a staunch industrialist, it is a good idea to do your part to preserve the quality of our water.

You can keep streams pollution free without ever leaving your property. It is easy. I wrote an article on the topic and linked it below. Check it out.

Good Reasons to Get a Colonoscopy Medical Exam

I am one of the millions of people who have had a colonoscopy exam. I had heard some nightmare stories about people about the preparation for the examination and the procedure. None of it is true. It is not horrible at all.

The exam is pretty easy and everyone should get one if it is time to do so (ask your doctor about that). If interested, I wrote an article about my experience and linked it at the bottom of this post.

I had someone comment to me that they are not going to get a colonoscopy exam because they "don't want to live forever anyway."

I was pretty disappointed to hear this.  I mean, life is not about longevity. Longevity is great, I'm not arguing against a long life, I'm just saying that you need to focus on your quality of life.

Sure, anyone could avoid a colonoscopy, come down suddenly with colon cancer, and die quickly. For the guy who "don't want to live forever." this is the best-worst case scenario he can hope for.  The worse-worse case scenerio might be coming down with a severely advanced colon related disease and live a very long life in a pair of diapers. Or perhaps a very long life battling a very hard condition that causes you nothing but agony, expense and struggle for you and your loved ones.

I am not a doctor, so I can not speak about avoiding illness with any certified level of expertise. I am not a medical expert. I know nothing of medicine. I do know that people 'suddenly' come down with diseases all the time. Many of these 'sudden' diseases could have been detected through routine examinations.   Avoiding a colonoscopy with the idea that you don't care if you live a long life is, quite obviously, short-sighted.  Not all suffering causes a short life.  You may as well simply 'suffer' briefly' by taking the exam instead of suffering physically, emotionally, and financially for perhaps decades.

Just some thoughts on that.  Again, I'm not a physician, but consider asking your doctor about any examinations you might be due for.  It could make your life a lot more comfortable in the long run.

Please check out the article I posted below on my colonoscopy experience.  Please also feel free to check out some of my other TurtleDog posts if you get a chance.

Description Of Blue Claw Crab Males. Know Your Crabs

I love fishing, or should I say crabbing, for blue claw crabs.  Blue Claw crabs are fun to catch and are fun to eat as well.

I do the majority of my crabbing at the south Jersey shore bay.  It is a nice way to pass the time. The southern New Jersey bay is known for having a fair amount of blue claw crabs in its waters.

Some recreational crabbers do not give any thought to identifying male versus female blue claw crabs.  It wouldn't surprise me if some people were not aware that you can tell the difference between the sexes of crabs.

Identifying the sex of a blue claw crab is easy to do.  I wrote an article on the topic and linked it below.  Please check it out.
