Default Conditional Formatting

Hello

I'm having a bit of trouble with conditional formatting in excel, but I'm not sure I am going about it the right way.

The first condition I am using is to turn the date red and bold if the date is over 70 days.

=TODAY()-D670

The trouble I am having is getting the date, in D6 to go back to a black font, once text is entered in another cell, say G6 for example.

Is it possible to do this with conditional formatting.

Thank you for any help you can provide

try:
=AND(TODAY()-D670,LEN(G6)=0)
