I've just started trying this. Got a son that is crazy about Ribs. First attempt was ok, but I started too late in the day and got to the point where we just had to eat whether they were perfect of not. Second attempt was much better, but I wouldn't consider myself an expert yet. If you need an apprentice let me know. It's at a minimum a great excuse to sit on the deck and drink beer all afternoon.
Some would consider me a hydraulic expert although I haven't worked in that area directly for a while so probably a little past my prime.
I can also hold my own against almost anyone when it comes to knowledge of No Limit Hold Em and Pearl Jam.
I'm pretty good with Excel but I think it's more that I'm surrounded by dip *****. We have a couple people completely oblivious to the SUM function and it's infuriating.
If you work in Excel frequently and don't know how to use
- Pivot Tables
You need to get yourself educated and make your life easier.
I'd also say I'm an expert on basically all Office products...even that bastard Access.
I live in Access these days! I always thought I was fairly expert on Excel but maybe it was just the people around me being considerably less skilled than myself. I can do lookups........I've seen a pivot table but don't know how to do it myself. Haven't done a macro and don't know what I would use it for. Womp womp. I can use all sorts of formulas though!
I don't know if I would call myself an expert on any of these things but I am definitely proficient at:
Dutch Oven Cooking
Building a fire from scratch (and only using 1 match)
Pub trivia/trivia games. I know the most useless facts
