Carol’s Ramblings

Here we are again – the weather is cooling and I have to wear my warm up jacket when I take my daily morning walk.  It has been brisk some mornings of late, which I guess is a good thing because it makes me walk faster! I am trying to psyche myself up so that I will not stop my daily morning exercise when it gets really cold out there!  I do dread and despise doing my exercising indoors on a treadmill at the end of my day and I am far too lazy to get up extra early to do  it before I start my day.  I far prefer being outdoors when I walk.  I do some of my best thinking then!

Halloween will be here very quickly.  I never have trick or treaters where I live but I still like to decorate for the different seasons and holidays.  The grandchildren love it when they come to visit.  The lineup for Halloween costumes for the grands this year is: Fireman, Captain Rex (from Star Wars), Wonder Woman, and a Princess. It is such fun to see them so excited.  I usually try to go with them if I can when they trick or treat – it is so much fun and I don’t want to miss any of that.

I think you will find this month’s articles informative and helpful.  At least I hope you will!  If there is anything in particular that you would like me to cover in future articles, please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate you.

Lastly but not least, as the weather is turning cooler, please try to remember the homeless and treat them with kindness and dignity.  I am trying to keep clear freezer bags in my car with soap, wet ones, gum, crackers or cookies, toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, etc. in them. Then when I see a homeless person, I just hand them the bag and I usually try to put at least $2.00 to $5.00 in it as well so they can purchase something to eat.  I hope you will consider doing the same.

And for goodness sake, don’t forget to smile at everyone you meet!  It could make a huge difference in their day!

Until next time, take care…

How to Paste Text in Your Document Without the Formatting

If you use information from online sources (i.e., Wikipedia), if you copy the information directly into Word, it could have some unwanted effects.

As a rule, you would not want to keep the original formatting. The bonus is that pasting without the formatting is also quicker and therefore easier!

Follows the steps below to learn how:

  1. Copy whatever text you would like from the source.
  2. Open your Word document where you would like to paste the text.
  3. On the Home tab of your Ribbon, in the Clipboard group, click Paste.

paste-options

  1. Click the Keep Text Only option to insert your text without the formatting.
  2. Of course, the easiest method to do this would be to copy your text, click in your document where you would like the copied text to appear and right-click and select Keep Text Only.

Doesn’t get much easier than that and now you will not have all those pesky formatting issues to deal with!
