I spent the better part of today working on a couple of things ... the first was my garage. I can now not only get a car in there, but we can still make it to the fridge, Madeline's bike, my bike, the tools, the winter supply of fire wood, and everything else we need.
The other thing is a new look and feel. I started with the idea that I was going to switch to MovableType, but I couldn't get it to work on my host. After fighting with their tech support people via their live chat service I simply gave up -- there is a blog post about that interaction for the future. You see the blog has blown up with MySQL errors twice this week so I was hoping to try out something else. After wasting too much time on that project I switched gears trying to get my database and my WP up to date and stable. It pushed me to make a bunch of changes under the hood. I also decided it was time to make a move away from the K2 world.
I'd love to know what you all think of the new theme ... there are still a few issues to work out, but it is time to spend some time with the family. Please let me know what you think!
