Google Calendar and Peachtree. Kind of a band-aid until I decide on an industry software / scheduling package. I would like to hear some feedback too.

Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's out there!

We use mozilla sunbird. For what we do with it, the program performs adequately.

I use an Excel spreadsheet that is really worked well for me. I can customize to fit my needs. And it usually is free software with computers or will be easy to find a friend that has it.
