Running and Rambling 3.0

“He knows changes aren’t permanent … but change is.”
- Rush, “Tom Sawyer”

(I know … the song selection is totally old school, but this band had one of the most devoted fan bases in the history of rock music, who remain fiercely loyal to this day. Think of it as a “one foot in the past, and one in the future” type of post.)


So … notice anything different around here?

I was planning to roll out a new template sometime after the first of the year, but since 1) things have quieted down a bit more than I expected lately, and 2) my community college pool is closed for another week (preventing me from swimming at midday), I figured I’d cut the ribbon on the new layout a few days early.

I’ll have more to say about it soon – probably a whole post of administrative notes, if history is any indication. Until then, I’m still tinkering around with things (like sidebar links) quite a bit, so don’t be shocked if something is here one day and gone or relocated the next. Also, please let me know if things aren’t loading properly or if the format fits your monitor poorly. This is only the second time I've given the blog a makeover, so I'm not nearly as efficient as I'd like to be when it comes to identifying unforseen glitches.

In the meantime … here's a vintage MTV-era video from the aforementioned Rush, who were the greatest band on the face of the Earth for countless uncool, misfit, solitary dreamers – and yes, I counted myself among them. (Click to play):

Change is good. Nice look dude - better looking than Getty Lee. So you know, most Canadians are not that ugly.

Nice and clean, I like it. I especially like the extra wide format. I dislike all that extra space on both margins that blogger seems to force on us. At least I haven't figured out how to change it.

Wanted to let you know that I walked to the library the day after Christmas and picked up East of Eden. I finished it Sunday night. I thought people were going crazy these days, but there sure were a fair share of crazy messed up people in that story. Steinbeck sure had his demons.

Looks great Donald! I like the four column format.

You're making the rest of us look like amateurs. ;)

I agree -- this makes it look like a more professional blog. Very polished and the ads kinda blend in nicely with the landscape (though they still stand out, dear advertisers).

Happy New Year, Donald!

Wow, the new template is all snazzy. Sweet!

Happy New Year!
