Well, you are not alone in the universe. There are at least two of us.

Probably the reason you don't need a spreadsheet. If you ever feel the need, there is so much on net/utube in a couple of hours you'll be an expert.

Make that three. Then again, I also have no interest in cell phones, smart phones, Facebook, or Twitter. It irks me to see someone texting while driving.

Oh, one more thing on my "never done this" list - even though I was born Jewish, I was never bar mitzvahed, becoming an atheist when I was 13.

Another one:

I never learned how to spin a top. My dad tried to teach me and he gave up.

+1 - The best thing about turning age 55 is they can no longer keep you out of Del Boca Vista. White shoes are optional, little electric cars are de rigueur.

Sadly, here's another one.....

Must confess: I have NEVER been able to retain anything from classes on Excel. I went to 4 workshops, over a period of about five years. Yet, because I never had reason to use it right away (and never invested time in working with it so I might remember something), it all just evaporated.

I just can't do it. All those boxes make my head spin.

Thank goodness, DH is a master at it--------------- I just turn over all spreadsheet work to him. He plays with that stuff for "fun."
