Warning: Geeky Post to follow! (Or should I say "newbie-geeky post"?) I've been experimenting with a new template. LA at Freckled Nest just switched over to a 3-column template and I liked the results, so I set out to see if I could get me one of them there 3-column doo-dads. Somewhere along the way, I went redneck, apparently! Anyhoo, I moseyed on over to Tips for New Bloggers (being as I am one) and found the instructions for how to edit my template. 'Course, I had already edited it with my winter design, so I had to play around with the instructions a bit, but I'm liking the new layout. Whaddaya think?
Incidentally, that little snowman in my header was from the freak Texas Christmas snowstorm of 2004. We were home at my parents' house in the Rio Grande Valley, where no measurable snowfall had ever been recorded, let alone at Christmas! I think McAllen received 3" or so. We had a great time playing in it, and then we created this tiny little snowman. To give you perspective, that's about a 1" acorn on his head. He's sitting on top of my parents' mailbox. Later in the day, we noticed this guy:
Yes, he's on top of a car! He was probably 5 feet tall! The next day, he was bowing, then I guess he boarded that refrigerated boxcar and headed to the North Pole: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pmuJDmjq-xQ (about 2 minutes in). This Christmas it was in the 70's, which is about normal. :::Sigh::: At least it feels like winter on my blog!
