Trick or treat

Here are some Halloween "treats" for you.

Flaming Bag of Poo

Why Dogs Hate Halloween

New look

Now that things are showing up correctly, I'm liking the new look. I've also added some stuff to the sidebar (e.g., books I'm reading) and changed other things (e.g., I no longer have people's full names listed in the "My Friends' Blogs" section).

As a bonus, through this whole process, I've learned quite a bit about code. (Though I still have more to learn. Next item of business: Figure out how to add graphics to the sidebar and make them hyperlinks.)

It's kind of depressing how much time I spend tinkering with my blog. (That would sound kind of naughty to someone who didn't know what a blog was. Hee hee.) But when you've really got nothing else to do, it helps pass the time.


Okay, more progress. Now my posts are showing up in the right place, but my photo is enormous! Nobody wants to see me on the big screen!

Some progress . . .

Okay, at least now the font looks right. Thanks for the help, Mike! Still working on the other problem . . .

Bear with me

Yes, I'm trying a new template (thanks for the tip, Julie), and yes, I realize that it doesn't look right yet. Everything is showing up as part of the sidebar. That's why the posts are displayed below the sidebar info instead of next to it; it's also why the font in my posts is so flowery and why every word in my posts is capitalized. I'm working on it. I'll fix it ASAICFOH (as soon as I can figure out how). Any hints from HTML-savvy friends? I've never been trained at all in HTML, so I'm learning as I go.

You've Changed 64% in 10 Years

Compared to who you were ten years ago, you've changed a great deal.
In fact, you're probably in a completely different phase of your life - and very happy about it!
