Happy Birthday!!

Someone is having a birthday today! Can't think of anything more that she'd want than four hot women in big hair and leather! Unless they were undressed...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MY DEAR FRIEND!


You'll notice that things are looking a bit different around here. Some people were getting security warnings based on Blogrolling's imminent demise, and frankly, after 5 1/2 years of keeping the same template, I was getting tired of the look. So I bit the bullet, and made the transition to "new" Blogger. I do it with mixed emotions. One of the things that I've enjoyed about blogging is learning how things work. I've assisted many of you with your own blogs over the years. It's not that I really knew what was going on, but I've spent an awfully long time playing in the guts of many templates. I've learned what things can be adjusted, and where to make those. I was able to come up with the click-through instructions (for Blogger) that most of you use, based on examination a couple of different ways to accomplish the task. I've altered my background for special occasions or seasons/holidays. No classes, no instruction--just hands-on experimentation.

"New" Blogger admittedly takes much of that ability and makes it easy for anyone to customize their templates. Also admittedly, I'll enjoy being able to do things quicker. But I'm going to miss playing around with the code. Oh, I still do. I've already had to do some things with this template. I'll be tweaking it over the next few weeks. You may or may not notice any changes. The only thing I see as a possible glitch is that those of you who follow me might have to re-follow me. Even though I couldn't ever display my followers in the 'old' Blogger, I've still got almost 140 of you! Early examination of my Dashboard, however, doesn't register them. So follow me again, if you'd like! Still haven't decided what to do about my blogrolls yet though...
My football teams are making it hard to walk around bragging about. The high school team lost to the cross-town rivals Friday night (BOOO....!). And my Griz are just looking average. They almost didn't win their own homecoming game yesterday in what should have been a cakewalk. I know they've got a new head coach, but things haven't changed THAT much! Carroll College is finally looking like the team that we've hoped for. They're undefeated, but they've looked a little shaky at times. I'm hoping the rest of the season goes better for all three teams!
Looking forward to having dinner with Rachel on Monday night. I've missed being able to communicate with her all summer. It'll be good to see her again. I just hope she's shaved her legs since coming off the mountain! :-P

Ummm... thank you for clarifying that Vixen (the band) was four WOMEN.

Like the new look Os. And appears I did have to re-follow you. :)

Please give Rachel a hug for me! And take her Christmas present too here. If you never picked it up from Heather it's still at Heather's :)

I really like the new look.
I updated mine this weekend too.
I can sometimes help with coding too if you ever need any help. I'm just learning it as I go too!!
My husband started a blog recently. If you're into sports, video games, or beer you might enjoy checking his blog out.

I know sometimes it's hard to find other man bloggers so I just figured I'd let you know.

Great picture of the two of you! :)

You are just old school in your approach - you need to embrace WYSIWYG. Actually, you need to start considering learning other things. :)

Sunny said...

The changes are nice! I'll check to see if I need to re-follow.

Just a question though...does the click through for pics work with the new blogger?? I couldn't get it to work and had to switch back to the old to make it work. Just wondering.

Ooh, I love the new digs. Although, they look very familiar... :P

Beautiful piccie of you and the gorgeous birthday girl. x

Sunny, I had a really hard time getting the click thru to work- took some different copy and pasting- had to copy and move more of the code on new blogger....but it works

Looks good!

Ms Scarlett said...

Looks good actually!!

Great shot of you and birthday girl!!

Vixen said...

Yeah....I totally read this. And then in my sleep deprived, tequila driven fog never came back and commented.

*THANK YOU*

*MUAH*
