Used to plan out a Square Foot Garden plot. Decide what you want to plant, find out if that plant has any likes or dislikes with other plants. check Wikipedia for one list (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_companion_plants), determine the spacing needed and then lay it out in the grid on the bottom. Once everything is placed where you want it take it out and start planting.

Song Tracker

Here is a Song Tracker form for performers in bands that I created to keep track of the status of new songs as they are learned and "off the page." Depending on lots of variables, I believe it is Junior size. This is my first template so let me know what I can do to improve it! Thanks.

3x5 index cards in letter sheet

Five 3x5 index cards on one letter sized sheet. Different styles.

Usage advice: 

Until a short time ago, I was printing 4up 3x5 index cards on letter sized paper, but then I discovered that if I placed the cards right, I could get more cards from a single sheet and thus, waste less paper.

There are three files:

  • blank cards
  • lined cards (horizontal)
  • lined cards (vertical)

The lined templates each come in four styles:

  • traditional (red upper line and blue lines, shown in thumbnail)
  • black
  • gray
  • light gray

There are templates for both the front and back of each card, and when I tested it on my printer (Epson Stylus CX4700), they came out perfectly, but on other printers you might have to tinker a bit. Just remember to select None on the scaling menu when you print from Acrobat Reader.

I also posted the OOo Draw file, so you can make changes if you need to.

Review: Levenger Stanley Briefbag

Levenger Stanley BriefbagA not-so-secret confession: I like man-bags, though even that term seems to be a recent (but necessary) designation. For many years during the eighties and early nineties, a man's natural instinct to gather and collect has been severely hampered by the stylings imposed by society. Yes, women can carry purses small enough to hold a set of keys or large enough to hold several small dogs and a freaked-out kitty, but --especially in a traditional business setting-- many men have been forced to tote a dark-coloured sharp-cornered briefcase, or else an equally dark laptop bag. Thankfully the shackles are now off and a man can wield a messenger bag, a guide bag, a map bag, and any of a dozen other sizes and styles without being called out as a wild bohemian at the boardroom table. Still, it's not easy to find something suitable to one's personality.

I love my knapsack, but it's more suited to day-hikes than to business. My Eddie Bauer guide bag is too small to hold much besides a Moleskine, a camera and a Newton, and it too is a little woodsy. My laptop bags look like --well-- laptop bags, practical for one use only, and people give me odd looks when they discover no laptop inside. I tried a bunch of canvas bags, but they weren't suitable for the extreme climates in live in. Nylon bags seem cold, modern, and lacking any sort of personality. I had nothing that felt suitable for both office work and dashing outside for errands, meetings, and hanging out at the local café and, in fact, I've been looking for just the perfect bag for nigh on a decade.

Enter the Levenger Stanley Compact Traveler Briefbag, or --as I prefer to call it-- simply Stanley. Could a traditional leather bag be suitable for a modern lifestyle?
