Hey guys. Obviously there are some weird changes taking place on this site. The head of web development at Sweet Juniper Media, Inc. was here all weekend, a muleheaded Dutchman loitering about the house in his underwear screaming at the laptop and eating up all the good snacks. Unfortunately, his knowledge of HTML and CSS consists of trial-and-error, "Hmmm, I wonder what will happen if I change that table property and hit preview. . ." and yelling, "So 'px' stands for what, pixels?"  I wish I could fire the guy and hire someone who actually knows what they're doing, but there's that whole cheap-ass Dutchman thing and he's valuable to other areas of the company. I'm simply hoping this design will make the blog slightly less stupid looking. The commenting problem of blogger vs. haloscan should be resolved, the archives should automatically update, there's now a search function, an "older posts" link at the bottom, and the ads should appear more orderly. If something looks weird, I'd be grateful if you'd e-mail me about it.

There are a few more tweaks I need to make, but I'm excited about creating some new content. I am adding more photo links over there on the right every day. All summer I've been trying to deliberately do something special and fun with the kids every single day, and as winter approaches and that gets more challenging, I thought it would be fun to start documenting it.
