I'm done for now.

So last night I started trying some new things, and at first it was happy with it, and then I looked at it in Internet Explorer and I went ARGGGG!! Then I tinkered with it some more and next thing you know, it was 1:00am. I was forced to go to bed, with it incomplete. The good news that it's done...for now. I'm still not totally happy with it, but at least it's starting to feel like home. I still need to do some tweaking here and there, but it's basically done.

I'm still a little sad that I've lost my comments again. This seems to happen when I do a major renovation, however I know how I can look them up again, for the "Best of Comments" post which will return next January.

I seem to have the ability to add "Gadgets" now to the website. It's something that Blooger set up when they (blaaa blaaa tech talk). The problem is that most of them are CRAP. I had to give up some things as well. The Weather Network weather thingy is gone, and now it has been replaced with one from Environment Canada. Honestly, I hate the damn thing, and will probably switch it was a "Gadget" made by a U.S. company.

I'm still iffy about the picture on the top of the blog. I thought that Northern Lights and the Canadian Wilderness would look good with the Blog name, but I'm starting to think that it might be too Cliché. Maybe I should have used a picture of a bunch of drunken people in front of a TV, watching the hockey game, or a drunk guy peeing behind a dumpster at 3:00am (Oh Canada),oh and I've done it, myself so I know it's Canadian, but that's a story for another time. Actually I might have an ideal. I'll work on it when I have time. Like the last time, I made a major change to my blog, expect some tweaks over the next couple of weeks, until I'm happy.

That sucks to always have to check things against IE. Change to firefox already, people. It's coming together for sure. I wonder if I might start to miss the el hugo pepsi thingy tho. :P

last night I tried to put in a huge beer bottle on the side, as the picture on the top of the screen. It didn't work out so well. To be honest, I hated it, but it was late and I had made so many changes, that I just left it like it was, thus Miss Jay discovered my mess.

However, I think the rounded corners makes the North Lights picture look so much better.

You are so right! IE had me going out of my mind until I just said, "Bump It." Mozilla is my new home! :-)

i agree with the rounded corners. Definitely better

New here so I can't compare it, but I do like the look of it, the Northern Lights might be a little cliche but always beautiful!
