Hi Tom, Thanks very much for your links - went to both and then sort of bounced around between them and ended up at http://www.vertex42.com/calendars/print ... ndars.html
where I was able to download the " Printable Monthly Calendar for 2010, 2011, ..." then I just typed in 2010 for the year and each month came up in little tabs along the bottom, I discovered I could delete the public holidays listed [that I didn't need] and then retyped in each block whatever I wished!
am very happy with the response, now just have to figure out how to put solved on this query! thanks to you again, Tom it was very decent of you to help out so quickly, This 6 wk trip is my first 'back home' to where I grew up after an absence of 37 yrs!! so am trying to organise a to do and see list and allocate days so I get to see and do as much as I can! you're an angel, Tom , Thanks heaps!
