Thanks to all of you for all the very helpful comments on my question about templates.  I finally, after some one on the comments mentioned Rick, remembered his tip page that I downloaded and have for just this reason.  If I’m not having a blonde moment then it seems like I’m having a senior moment and lately they have all been running together.  After reading all of your comments and re-reading Rick’s tips, I did go in and play with it a little bit, and as most of you said, it is pretty easy to read and doesn’t look bad the way it is.  I would like to change with the seasons, but that is asking too much I guess of blog spot.  Anyway, thanks so much for all of your comments.  I do appreciate each and every one of them. :)


Thank you for all the prayers for my brother.  I did take him yesterday for his appointment with the Specialist.  He has decided my brother his bleeding internally and is going to run an upper GI test on Monday.  This in no way would help his disease, there is no cure for it, but it may keep him from having so many transfusions. I have to have him at the hospital at 6:30 am for the test, and then we leave there to go to the Bone Marrow unit for a blood count.  We got to the hospital yesterday at 8:30am and I got home last night at 7:30.  We have been having some really long, tiring days, and I am sure there will be lots more to come.


Welcome to my new follower Ali.  Here is her site: Ali’s Page.  I haven’t had time to read all of her blog yet, but what I have read I really enjoyed.  Thanks for joining Ali, and I hope you enjoy the ride.


I received this video from a friend in Florida this morning and I thought some of you might enjoy it.  I love any kind of Classical music, so found this beautifully done.  Take a look, I think you will like it too.  http://www.wimp.com/dubaifountain/


Going to make this a short post and try to get something done.  Stay safe… :)

Pidge, so sorry to here of your brothers setback, I hope it will get turned back around and he will do better, we will pray for his recovery. Your blog will do fine if you want to change the layout, I didn't lose a thing when I did mine. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.

Here's hoping that your specialist can bring your brother some relief with his expertise and the upper GI test. If he can improve his quality of life some, that will be a welcome relief!

Pidge, take care of yourself. I'm sure sure brother appreciates the good care you are taking of him. Prayers to all of you!

Hope that something can be done to make your brother feel better. Hang in there, girl, you are keeping a really tiring pace!

The fountains in the video were gorgeous, and the music is too. Thanks.

I hope your brother is not in pain. He will be in my thoughts.
You gave me an idea. I think I will try to fool with the colours of my Blog something like fall colours for the sides. I like your Blog the way it is. I find narrow texts easier to read than ones that go almost across the whole page.

Vera said...

I could not change the colours. Too bad.

Rick and Paulette said...

So sorry to hear about your brother's medical problems. Hopefully, things will begin to improve for him soon.

Your blog looks pretty good the way it is.

I think this blog looks 100 times better than the one over at my trip journal. I think those blogs are ugly. :)

Sorry your brother is having so much trouble with this, hope they are keeping him as comfortable as can be throughout it all.

On the blog, I made a whole other blogger blog specifically for testing template changes and other edits/mods. I make the mods there and if they appeal to me, I can just download my current template again and re-upload it there for the next attempt. I made some test content there too so I can verify that any changes don't effect my content. It has proven to be an excellent system for me so far. The other nice benefit is that I can experiment without my main blog readers wondering what the heck I am up to LOL! Hope that helps :)
