A Cry for Help!

I want to write a little program where I can put in a grid of twenty each of six different meals (T has us eating 5-6 small meals a day made of a protein and whole-grain, fruit, or vegetable carbohydrate source), where I can choose with a little radio button for each day of the week and have the results printed up in a nice neat little chart. If I felt like getting really fancy, it could also make me a grocery list. I think it would work a lot like some web apps you see for surveys and stuff. Can FrontPage do that? How about Publisher? Does anybody know?

Now that's planning. I am not really sure I understand how the radio button thingy works, but it sounds cool.

I have no clues about programming... I am still trying to visualize a grid of 20 each of six different meals...

Sounds like a good excuse to learn ActionScript (Flash). I am told that ActionScript is a lot like XML and CSS. Once you know one, you'll have no trouble learning the other. Then you can build Dashboard Widgets for Macs and Desktop Widgets for PCs and many other things.

Or. . . you could just tell T to his meal plan sounds like something Kramer would come up with and go get a milkshake.

Can't you just cut out pictures of food from magazines and arrange them in the appropriate little clusters every day on a piece of poster board? Or perhaps you could make a felt board... or do something nifty with refrigerator magnets... or Mcguyver something together with two peach pits, a stalk of asparagus, and a transistor radio...

Maybe you could just get a Big Chief tablet and some crayons?
