I have made an Excel spreadsheet that covers all 12 months for the 2008 year. I am able to go back a month or so to see what was done and I can go to a future month to plug in information.

I can't find a way to upload this for everyone to access. If you e-mail me, I would be happy to send it to you as a attachment. It saves me a lot of time to be able to have my entire year of activity calendars handy at the same time with only one program and item open on my computer.

It is not a protected form (don't know how to do this in Excel yet) so I suggest after opening it you save it under another name and keep the orginial as a blank template.

This is done on legal size (8&1/2 x 14) paper in the landscape layout. It works out pretty well for most of our seniors. For those seniors that can't see well enough to read it, I usually go over it during our monthly Resident Meeting.

Hi there, Can anyone help me. I am looking for a way to make our monthly calendars larger. Letter size is hard for them to read. I am looking for a template or program that I can use regularly to make larger calendars


Hello there, I use excell and have my full year of calendars in one workbook containing 12 spreadsheets. I print it on legal size paper by adjusting the papersize in the page setup. All 12 of my sheets are set up and layed out. All I have to do in plug in the activities. I can e-mail it to anyone who wants one. I keep a blank copy on my computer and when I start a new year I open it, click "save as" and save it as "07calendar," "08calendar" and so on.

I have been looking for a way to make these spreadsheets protected templates to avoid loosing or messing up the form.

I need help with the calendar as well. I am no good at Excel but what I have done is use the calendar from my Print Artist and enlarge it to exacly 131%. It is just large enough at that percent to fill a 11X14 sheet of paper. Are you able to e-mail me the template for your calendar? Honestly, I don't know how that works.

Thank you!

Yes, I can e-mail it to you. I will attach 2 Excel Workbooks: one is a blank one and the other one is my current 2008 calendar workbook. Feel free to use information from it. If you are not familiar with the “comment” tool in excel, let me know. You will see on my 2008 calendar that I use the comment tool to remind me of things I need to do. Be sure to save the blank workbook, then save it again as the one you will use (such as “2008 Calendar” ) then you will always have the blank one to fall back on.

Hi!!
I have a large calendar template you can use. I made it on publisher. It prints on six 11x17, you then trim the overlap and glue stick it together. Give me your e-mail address.

We have on the membership web-site http://members.activitydirector.com MS Word & we now do a monthly sample calendar (that you can edit) 11x17. Since it is pre -made you shouldn't have the problems of trying to blow it up to 11X17 size. Of course you will lneed to be able to print it from a print onto the size of paper. Something to consider. Another bonus is if you have a problem with this & are a member one of our Tech guys can work with you.

About the calendars that go into the resident 's rooms...we buy colored paper, using very light colors only, to make the calendars more attractive and easy to read.

Hi bsnook,
If you need help with excel, just msg me at lmg633@yahoo.com.au I'm not too bad with excel.

Great idea by the way. I've been trying to convert people to excel as I love it, but to no avail.

I have been informed that in SC if it is not 11/17 that I would be tagged, since letter size is too small.

Really easy solution is to use your regular copier, but enlarge 132%. this will leave space on the bottom for res. to write important things on, and be large enough to see.

You can also change the print-out size in the Print Set-up window.

Hi Rita here, you didn't say what size paper you were printing out now. An option could be to connect the exsisting one with borders. There is a program to enlarge them depending on how large you want it.

Hi

I agree it is bad for them to read. I take my original and increase on copier 155 percent and then take that copy to our local staples, there they enlarge it to a 2' x 4 " and it is perfect for the residents to see. We make 3 copies as I have 3 floors to post it on and then I make a monthly newsletter which has the calendar highlights listed. Hope this helps!

hI - I ALSO USE MICROSOFT AND I HAVE THE AIDES DO THEIR OWN ACTIVITIES FOR THE DAYS THEY WORK AND I GET ALL OF THEM TURNED IN THE WEEK PRIOR TO THE NEXT MONTH AND PUT IT ON 8x11 AND USE ANOTHER COPIER TO ENLARGE TO 11x17. EACH DAY THE AIDES PRINT OUT A SHEET WITH FACTS, CROSSWORD ON THE BACK AND THE FRONT PAGE HAS THE DAILY ACTIVITES AND THEY PASS THIS OUT TO EACH RESIDENT (GIVES A CHANCE FOR ONE-ON-ONE AND THEY CAN EASILY READ OR HAVE THE AIDES REVIEW THE DAILY SHEET) THE LARGE CALENDAR IS POSTED AT A LEVEL FOR WHEELCHAIRS AND THOSE WITH WALKERS OUTSIDE OF THE LOUNGE AND AT 11x17 WE HAVE NOT HAD ANY CONCERNS. IT IS LARGE PRINT/ JUST BLACK AND WHITE. THE DAILY SCHEDULE BEING PASSED OUT HAS BEEN WELL-RECEIVED. KIM HENDRICKSON

Our residents also have issues reading our calendars. We now take the calendar to our local light and power company and they can enlarge it to any size we need. They do this for us as a curtousy to our residents. Check with them to see if they are willing to help you with enlarging. We just take them the 8.5x11 and they do the rest.

The body's internal clock helps to regulate a water-storing hormone so that nightly dehydration or trips to the toilet are not the norm, research suggests.
replica sunglasses,
In an article published in Nature Neuroscience today,replica sunglasses neurophysiologists Eric Trudel and Charles Bourque at the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre in Montreal, Canada, propose a mechanism by which the body's circadian system, or internal clock, controls water regulation1. By allowing cells that sense water levels to activate cells that release vasopressin, a hormone that instructs the body to store water, the circadian system keeps the body hydrated during sleep.
aoc gold,
"We've known for years that there's a rhythm of vasopressin that gets high when you're sleeping.aoc gold But no one knew how that occurred. And this group identified a very concrete physiological mechanism of how it occurs," says Christopher Colwell, a neuroscientist who studies sleep and circadian rhythms at the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles.
age of conan power leveling,
The body regulates its water content mainly by balancing water intake through thirst with water loss through urine production.age of conan power leveling maple story mesos People don't drink during sleep, so the body has to minimize water loss to remain sufficiently hydrated. Scientists knew that low water levels excite a group of cells called osmosensory neurons, which direct another set of neurons to release vasopressin into the bloodstream. Vasopressin levels increase during sleep; clock neurons, meanwhile, get quieter.
aion gold,
Trudel and Bourque tested the idea that lower clock-neuron activity might allow osmosensory neurons to more easily activate vasopressin-releasing neurons,aion gold which would mean more water retention and less urine production during sleep.
To do this, they isolated thin slices of rat brain containing intact sensory, vasopressin-releasing and clock neurons. Even when removed from the brain, clock neurons continue to mark time.
The duo then stimulated the sensory neurons and recorded any electrical activity in the vasopressin-releasing neurons to monitor communication between the two cell groups. The researchers then moved on to look at the effect of the clock cells on this pathway. When they did not activate the clock cells during the 'sleep' part of their cycle, it was easier for the sensory cells to communicate with vasopressin-releasing cells. Conversely, when they activated the clock cells, this communication decreased markedly.
maple story mesos,
The results suggest that clock cells function as a dimmer switch for water control.maple story mesos When their activity is high, they prevent sensory cells from instructing secretory cells to release vasopressin. Then, when clock cells are less active, sensory cells can easily instruct secretory cells to release vasopressin, ensuring that the body holds on to its water reserves.
Colwell points out that the study was done in rats, which are nocturnal. Although the vasopressin cycle and clock-neuron activity are similar in rats and humans, the question of whether the same mechanism occurs in animals that sleep at night remains to be answered.
dog clothes,
"We show this for this one circuit,dog clothes but it's possible that clock neurons regulate other circuits in a similar manner and this remains to be studied," says Bourque. He speculates that future studies might reveal whether the same mechanism regulates hunger, sleepiness and other aspects of physiology related to circadian rhythms.

Hi, I was going to offer the same help. We do enlarge the calenders for some of our visually impared residents who nee a much larger printed calendar to see!

Steve


I use microsoft publisher. I print my monthly calendars 11x17. Then I will also enlarge in to 46x34 to put on the big bulletin board. It prints out on several pieces of paper and then we put it together. You can also go to kinko's to and enlarge it. I like to have it in color, and for me it costs to much to print it up at kinko's.

However, what program do you use now. May programs have a feature that you can change the paper size in your properties setting when the print screen enlarges.

Hope this helps
Stacy

I use Corwin Calendars for mine. I have 11X17 calendars made for each residents room and I have a 36x48 made for the bulletin board that is full color. I have several backgrounds to choose from and they print and ship very fast.

It seems no one has mentioned mycorwincalendar.com. I created an account at that website and create my calendar by simply logging in and filling in the information needed. It's a fairly easy process and then you can just order your calenders straight from them in all different sizes and layouts. I highly recommend it.

Thanks,

Joe
