Documents: How to Undo Typing

Every one of us makes sometimes mistakes while writing or copying and pasting. It is important to know how to undo typing and I am going to give an example of how to do it in MS Word. Programmers of many programs such as Microsoft Word predicted that sometimes people make mistakes and for this reason in every Word document there is an option to undo typing. There are a few ways to do it:

-One way to do it is to click Edit on the top left of your screen and choose Undo typing. If you typed a wrong word for example it will make this word disappear.
-In many word documents there is a special arrow in the type left corner of the screen. Click on it as many times as you want to undo a few changes.
-You can also use your keyboard to undo changes. To undo simply click Ctrl + Z, to bring something back press Ctrl + Y.

Everybody makes mistakes and you are probably going to use this feature a lot, even if you think that it is not very useful.


I would definitely like to have my own garden one day. I used to live in a house with a garden when I was a child and although I now I live in a flat, I have very fond memories from that period of my life. Having a garden gives many possibilities when it comes to arranging it. This includes flowers, vegetables, and other plants that can be freely planted there. Gardens give a lot of free space and an opportunity to extend one’s home. If you have ever dreamed about having your own sauna but never actually could afford to allocate some space for it in your home, you can always consider elevating a garden building that will accommodate all your needs. It can be either your new office if you need some peaceful time on your own, away from family members, or even a gym. One problem with which I am struggling at the moment is that I cannot listen to the music really loud because of my neighbors. I could do whatever I want if I had my small, wooden hut hidden somewhere in a garden. Another example can be playing a musical instrument which usually annoys everybody around, even the family members. Having a garden building is a good solution for musicians as well.


A cufflink also known as cuff link or cuff-link is a decorative fastener. It is designed to be worn on the two sides of the cuff on a dress, shirt, or blouse. Cufflinks come in different shapes and colors, making shirts and blouses more fashionable. Cufflinks are great for any occasions: birthday parties, wedding, anniversaries, etc. Cufflinks are those little things that can help us look more original. If you are worried that your dress or shirt is not original enough, pick a cufflink to make it more original. That way you will not have to worry that somebody else is going to dress similar dress or shirt to you. Cufflinks will also be of great help if you get bored with your outfits easily. Just insert a small outfit in blouse or skirt, and see how much it changes.

Being Fashionable at All Times

I do not know about you, but I like to wear stylish clothes at all times. I like to do it even when I go to the beach, although from time to time I just put my shorts if I go there just for a little while.

I have been asking myself how to be always fashionable. Here are some things I decided to do to help me become more fashionable and feel better in my clothes:

One of the first things I decided to do was to have a large mirror in my living room. Thanks to the mirror, I am always able to keep track of the way I look like, especially when I am about to go out somewhere. Thanks to the mirror, I can always spot easily if something I wear does not look perfect.

I also rely on what others, especially my family members tell me about the way I look like. Every time I dress something, I want to know what others think about it. I can rely on their honesty as they are likely to tell me if there is something wrong about what I wear. Their honesty is something I have been relying for a long time now.

The last thing I do to remain as fashionable as possible is to read various magazines dedicated to fashion. I have been doing it for some time and I am planning to do it for a long time.

Fun Online Activities

The Internet is huge and there are millions of websites that a person may want to visit. Of course, there may not be enough time to visit so many websites, so that is why it is a good idea to know which sites are worth visiting. In this article I would like to present you with a few types of sites which are fun to visit:

-Video streaming sites may be worth checking out as there are all kinds of video clips that will appeal to a wide audience. Some of them have over 100 million views.

-Social networking sites can be fun to visit as they can allow you to stay in touch with your friends or meet other people with similar interests.

-Online websites which allow you to play games in your browser can be fun to visit when you have a few extra minutes (or hours) and are not sure what to do.

-Checking out forums or even blogs can be a good way to discuss all kinds of topics with people. Some forums have huge communities and many regular visitors.

Learning from Mistakes

If you want to be an online entrepreneur, then you should be ready to deal with various problems. Being an entrepreneur is not that easy, as there will be many things you will need to worry about. In the end it can be very rewarding so it is important not to get discouraged. Since being an entrepreneur is not that easy, you might make some mistakes from time to time. The important thing is to learn from your own mistakes and do not make them again. The longer you will be an entrepreneur, the more experience you will have. This experience should help you deal with any problems you may encounter in the future.

10 of Dublin’s Most Beautiful Buildings

Some of my friends have ancestors who came to the US from Ireland a few generations ago. For them, visiting the capital city of Ireland, Dublin, might be a good opportunity to make themselves familiar with the history of where their grandfathers came from.

But what to do once you’re there. You could do what many do and head straight to the bar but you’d be missing out on a lot of history seeped into the walls of the beautiful buildings dotted in and around the city.

You don’t have to leave the city center to visit Dublin Castle, an 18th century building,now used for state visits and conferences and offering some amazing dining facilities. When you see it for the first time, don’t be surprised if it looks familiar as its appeared in loads of films and even doubled for the Vatican in the opening episode of The Tudors.

Stroll across the beautiful, Georgian Ha’penny footbridge (don’t worry, you won’t need a half cent to cross it anymore) which will take you over the River Tiffey. From the bridge, you get an amazing view of the Custom House, which is arguably the most magnificent building in Dublin. Every single stone mason in Dublin was commissioned to work on the bridge in 1791, and it cost a staggering $300,000 to build. Sadly, the original interior was destroyed by the IRA bombings in 1921 during their War of Independence.

Transport yourself back to the 18th Century with a walk through the cobbles of Trinity College which homes the ‘Book of Kells’ – a 9th Century Gospel manuscript. You can even get a tea-towel for your Mums with it printed on! Sticking with the religious theme, Christ Church Cathedral, where King Edward VI was crowned, has had a church built on the same site since 102 AD! and is well worth going to see.

You won’t be able to miss ‘Spike’ as you wander around the city as he dominates the skyline. He was commissioned for the Millenium celebrations and stands on the site of Nelsons Pillar, again destroyed by the IRA.

If you like gore, go see Kilmainham Gaol,now a museum, but once home to Dublin Gaol where many men, women and children were imprisoned in appalling conditions and Irish Rebellions were publicly hung. Now the largest vacant gaol in Europe, but whilst empty of prisoners it is crammed full of their history.

Temple Bar, on the south bank of the Liffey, is the “cultural quarter” and it has kept its medieval feel with gothic buildings and narrow cobbled streets.

The Storehouse is Dublin’s number one attraction – home to Irelands most famous brand. And while the building itself is worth a visit people undoubtedly go to savour a complimentary glass of the black stuff in the trendy Gravity Bar on the seventh floor where the views are as spectacular as the surroundings and the drink itself.

And after all that history you can reward yourself by visiting some of the many trendy bars and clubs in Dublin (although many of those are housed in some pretty splendid architecture too).

Save Money at Disneyland

Disneyland is an excellent travel destination for both kids and adults. Everyone will enjoy visiting Disneyland, because there are so many attractions. However, it is also true that most of us realize how expensive such a vacation can be. Fortunately, there are many ways to save money at Disneyland.

-Traveling to Disneyland can be a big expense in itself. Make sure that you will travel in a car that will not require any road-side repairs. Such repairs can be costly and we want to avoid that. If you are renting a car, then deal with car rental companies that offer the best deals.
-Going to Disneyland is probably the most expensive during summer. However, many people prefer to go during spring or even during some other time. You might be able to save a lot of money with off-season bargains. Take that into account when planning your vacation.
-Most Disneyland sanctioned hotels are quite expensive. You can save quite a bit by staying at a different hotel. You can still watch Disneyland fireworks from many other hotels, so staying at a Disneyland sanctioned hotel is not mandatory.
-Consider buying a Disney Multi-Day or Annual Pass. If you plan to travel to Disneyland a lot, then this can save you a lot of money.

Traveling and Money

I am still not sure whether or not I will want to travel somewhere this summer. One thing that discourages me from doing that is the lack of money, but when I think about all those places I could relax in, I feel sorry that I might not be able to go anywhere this summer. One idea I have is to leave the kids at their grandparents house and go somewhere by myself, somewhere where I could enjoy my time. I do not know yet what I am going to do about the lack of money. Maybe borrowing it from somebody is not such a bad idea if I know that going somewhere on vacation would help me regenerate? I will have to think about it. Once I come up with something, I will tell you about it.

Web Presence for Small Businesses

It is not uncommon for small businesses to want to establish a Web presence. Establishing a strong Web presence can be a way to bring new leads and sales. This will result in a financial profit and that is what businesses are all about. A small business may not have enough capital to advertise on TV or in other places where advertising is expensive. Fortunately, establishing a Web presence does not have to cost a lot, so it is a relatively good way to gain exposure. It may also be a way to strengthen customer relationships, as customers will be able to visit the website at any given time. This of course means that a business should invest in reliable hosting.

Streaming Videos

Streaming video sites are becoming more and more popular these days. A good example is YouTube that many people probably heard about. Video streaming sites try to make watching video clips online as convenient as possible. The technology has gone a long way since I started watching streaming videos and these days the quality of videos is simply better. hey also load pretty fast which is due to the fact that more and more people have access to fast broadband. Video streaming will be with us for many, many years because it is a convenient way to share video clips with others.
