What are some activities/dates I can do to boost confidence?

I haven't been feeling so confident lately. I know my SO could also be much happier if she felt a bit more confident. When we first met around 3 years ago, we were both extremely confident. Now we seem to have trouble being decisive, making decisions to better ourselves/get necessary things done, and choosing a restaurant or a date idea gets harder and harder. I would love ideas of things that could help with this. [more inside]

75 bad dates

I bought a box of 2 pounds of Fancy Amary Dates at the imported food store, because they were the cheapest. Now I know why - they're kind of tough and fibrous and not very sweet. Normally I can finish off a box of dates in a week, but these ones are going slowly. What can I do to redeem these dates?

Language for dates

Help settle this bet/communication issue. Pretend it's this past Monday, July 14th. You and several friends get an email about another friend's upcoming birthday party. The note says the party is next Saturday. Do you think the party is Saturday the 19th or Saturday the 26th?

Ajwa dates... Do any stores in Los Angeles carry them?

Am wary of buying these online, as I am looking for fresh, malleable, amber deliciousness. Anyone know any retailers in the LA/Orange County area? I have tried some Middle Eastern markets so far, but to no avail, if that helps. Thank you!

Please be aware that this is from my perspective. [more inside]

When was the Italian printer Carlo Belloni in operation?

I have a paper advertising item which, I am told, was printed by Carlo Belloni in Milan, Italy. The item appears to be from around 1920 to 1940 or perhaps earlier. For dating purposes, I would like to know when this printer was in operation. TIA

Excel imported my dates as day-month instead of year-month. How to fix?

How do I fix this? I "imported" a table from a PDF (big mistake). In the pdf, the dates were formatted as AA-BB, where AA was the month and BB was the year. Excel interpreted that as AA is the month and BB is the day, and gave them all 2013 as the year. So now the date reads as 11-Jan instead of Jan 2011. I no longer have access to the original dataset because I only just noticed the mistake. I am using Excel 2010 on Windows.

I hate iPhoto, except for the fact that it imports and organizes by date

After years and years of agony, we're quitting iPhoto for OS X. For now, we're using Lyn plus existing cloud backup rather than paying another monthly nut for Dropbox or the like. The only problem is, I like that when iPhoto imports photos, it organized them by year, month and day. I'd like to find a way to replace this functionality -- Apple script, existing software, whatever -- without actually importing them into iPhoto.

JLLERT - German printer?

Information on JLLERT (German printer?). I have an old German olive oil label. I am trying to determine just how old it is. In small print, it reads "JLLERT No. 7516 (or 4516)". I suspect that JLLERT is the printer's name. The label was used by August Grill (Schorndorf), a store that was in operation from 1912 to 1965. I would like to know when JLLERT was in operation.
