Monday's Post-Its...

Today I want to share something that I have been using for FREE for almost 6 years. 

Apache Open Office

I had a friend who shared this information with me and I have been using it ever since.

I was using Microsoft Office Products that came already installed on my computer.

Well, my computer got old and had to be replaced. So I ordered a new one from Dell and they asked me if I wanted the Microsoft Office Suite installed. Of course, until I heard how much... just too much for me.

I needed a good word processor/publishing software and a spreadsheet program but the price for the Microsoft Package almost made me fall out of my chair.

Apache Open Office is just like the Microsoft products. It has a word processor, spreadsheet, and publishing program. If you need to share files with someone who has those programs, Open Office will import/export it's files into their format.


Just thought I would share this information today
just in case you have not heard of it before!
You can go to
and download it for free!

Thanks for stopping by!

As life goes...
It is Monday, and it has been a 2 Tylenol day.  Printer problems which have taken me about three hours to fix on a day that is cold, dark and windy. My bones just don't like days like today. I am dreaming of warm and sunny days and it isn't even January yet. 


  1. i get so frustrated when the printer has problems, over the years i have had several real hissy fits dealing with printers... i have not heard of this free program, sounds great.

    1. My Kodak printer only lasted a year so I bought an HP and it only lasted a year, both were replaced in warranty, but I use them very little and wonder why they don't last? And they always quit after I've just replaced the ink cartridges!

  2. I just realized that your blog had dropped off my reader. I think you must be tied to Google plus and my blog keeps kicking those blogs out. Anyway- you are back on my reader now. xo Diana

    1. Thanks Diana, I missed you and am happy happy happy you are back!

  5. thanks for the info about Apache Open Office. I've never heard of it before. We will be getting a new desktop computer soon since ours is old and outdated. I'll keep that program in mind if we need an alternate solution.
