Marmite will soon be back on shelves and TAB is dead to us

The marmite shortage will end in two weeks. Due to the ban on alcohol sales, Brewer’s yeast has been in short supply. Marmite uses the spent yeast from alcohol production. In news of other things you probably haven’t missed, TAB will no longer be (yes zero caffeine zero sugar drink).

How did you celebrate Spreadsheet Day?

In October Excel turned 35. I am one year older than Excel and I am not sure how I feel about it. I’ve used Excel quite a bit in my work career and after mastering pivot tables, I get really excited to use them. I use the term mastering VERY loosely.
