Star Wars Mandalorian ornament

The launch of the Disney+ streaming service was heralded by their Star Wars show, The Mandalorian. Since my social media of choice is Twitter, I immediately muted mentions of the show. Still, my friend Jonathan sent me instructions for an ornament of The Child.

Hope you enjoy making this, and may the Force be with you, especially on Life Day!

Counting Visible cells in Excel

Today, I created yet another report in Excel. As usual, I had used the Format as a Table command and then filtered out some data. The next step was to count the number of rows that were still visible. I used the formula =SUBTOTAL(3,A2:A144) and had the required information. This website has a good explanation of the process, along with how to count rows that have been manually hidden (instead of filtered).

Vocal warmup

This is intended to be spoken slowly and deliberately:

“Eleven benevolent elephants met Lilly and Lucy in Philadelphia. They went to see Camelot in Unique New York, with guns and drums and drums and guns which they kept in the bodega bodega bodega. They soon came across Brilliant Italian William from Topeka, who merely murmured, ”lilly lally lilly lally.“ Then around the rugged rock the ragged rascal ran, to live among Culligans and Callalillies and let his tone drift off as easily as a sigh.”
