A Bit Brain Dead, But Successful



I am a bit brain dead tonight and will probably be seeing pie charts in my dreams for the next two weeks! I have been working on a financial report to be distributed to parish members, and Fr. Pat, our new pastor, has requested that I show the major categories in the form of pie charts. This is really a good idea. However, I have had very little experience with doing pie charts in Excel, so I have been rising to the challenge and have pretty much conquered the whole pie chart thing.

A lot of what I have learned about various computer programs seems to have been the result of intensive self-teaching to complete some sort of project. I actually enjoy being challenged like this and successfully figuring how to do what I need to do. But I am still brain dead tonight!



Sooooooooo... I am taking the easy way out tonight. I have a question to pose for you all to answer. This could be quite interesting and possibly quite entertaining! Are you ready?

What are the most interesting or unusual things you have done with duct tape?

I duct tape my feet before long hikes to prevent blisters. It actually works. Plus it keeps parts of my feet shiny and clean..

Duct tape is the 8th Greatest Wonder. I am not sure I've done anything specifically creative with it that others have not.

Well,, one night in bed Marilyn and I...
On second thought, I have another one. My boys frequently tape up the old sneakers they wear for work. They tape them sometimes even when they don't need it.
I use duct tape a lot but nothing interesting.
The roll I bought last week was Duck Brand duct tape. Duck duct tape.

I've duct taped my shoes, my belt, my pants, and even my eyeglasses. But these were usually done on fires when I really didn't have an option. My neigbor has me beat. The rear driver side window on his car fell so instead of taking it down to get it fixed he duct taped it. He removes the duct tape when he wants more air. It's been that way for two years!

We used duct tape all the time to tape up hernias in pigs. It will stay on the pig for about two weeks, enough to heal over the hernia and bring the price up when you take them to market.

Long b4 duct tape was "in" (especially among the teen crowd) I knew of it as electrical or plumbing tape because it was the strongest tape in my father's tool section. Until I tried to open a pkg he had sent me at college I had no idea how bleeping strong that tape really was.

What have I done? Well, I've thought about using it in means to keep Mr. Escape Artist here since he works such long hrs, but that would put him in a "sticky" situation. I know: GROAN!

Then, when I can't find a thing in my close to wear, I've contemplated a sultry look using pasties of duct tape, but perish the thought. I'm not into pain. SO boring I am... at least with duct tape... ;)
