I have been tinkering...too hot to do anything else

Well, that wonderful 19 degree weather last week is already a distant memory and we probably won't see anything like that again for awhile. It is 29 degrees now (84F) and supposedly feels like 33 (92F) thanks to the humidity. Arrrggghhhh.

Anyway, I have been making a few changes to the site today, both minor (font changes) to major (new sidebar sections). I have added a feature that lists the recent comments posted by you at the bottom of the sidebar. If you do not like it, let me know.

Also, I added a section called "my gurus" with a link to the extremely helpful Learning Movable Type pages. They have figured out how to get more out of MT and also explain it well enough that a computer misfit like myself can understand it. If you are new to MT and trying to figure out how to improve things they are highly recommended.

UPDATE: Check that out!!! I was able to get a background picture to replace the boring red color I had before. Not sure if this is the one I will use permanently, but it will do for now!

UPDATE #2: I have also expanded the size of the actual blog...it is much wider now. To make it look better I also pushed up the font sizes. My only concern is that some computers will not be able to support the width...let me know. It will probably be hot again tomorrow, so I can change it back.
