National Donut Day 2015

Here’s a day specifically for all you pastry lovers. National Donut Day 2015 is right around the corner. This interesting event, which takes place on Friday, June 5, consists of most Donut stores around the US and Canada allowing every costumer who walks in to take one free donut of any flavor.

Most donut vendors, including Krispy Kreme and Dunkin’ Donuts, are participating in this country-wide event and are offering ANY flavor of your choosing, as opposed to limited options. The only obstacle now is… which flavor do you choose? The classic glaze? The delicious filled ones? Let us know which flavors are your favorite in the comments!

For more info on National Donut Day 2015, check out its official website.

Librivox_kgrIf you like audio books, listen to this. You can your own personal library of audio books that you get FREE!

Librivox is a collection of audio books available for free in the public domain. There are thousands of titles to choose from, covering everything from classic fiction, plays and poetry to non-fictional works that are historical, educational or autobiographical.

The audio books are free to download and save to your computer, mp3 player, mobile device, or burn on a CD to listen to and enjoy. According to their web site, the Librivox objective is “To make all books in the public domain available, for free, in audio format on the internet”.

Librivox is a non-commercial, non-profit and ad-free project powered by volunteers and donates its recordings to the public domain.  The audio books are free to download, distribute and re-purpose as needed in the United States.

Free Alternatives to Microsoft Office

Microsoft Office is a great suite of programs for creating documents, spreadsheets, and presentations, but it’s costly. Some people may not be able to afford it or simply don’t see a point in spending money on it. Fortunately, there are some great free alternatives!

Free Office Productivity Suites

OpenOffice.org is the premiere alternative to Microsoft Office. Also known as Apache OpenOffice, this suite of programs empowers you to create documents, spreadsheets, presentations, graphics and more. You can also edit existing files created by Microsoft Office and other office suites with little or no difficulty. It’s also open source, which means it is free to download and use.

LibreOffice.org – LibreOffice.org is another free alternative to Microsoft Office and is very similar to OpenOffice.org. Check out this feature comparison between LibreOffice 4.4.3 and Microsoft® Office 13 .

Zoho.com – Zoho.com is a web based system used for creating and managing documents, e-mail and projects for your business. It is available in a free and paid version.

Google Docs – Google Docs is yet another great way to make documents similar to OpenOffce.org. The link above will bring you to the Google sign-up page. Keep in mind that you will have to create a Google account or use a pre-existing one to access Google Docs.

These free productivity packages are great ways to create and edit your documents or spreadsheets if you are unable to purchase Microsoft Office. If you’re in need of productivity software for office applications, any of these will help get the job done!
