Well, I think I've just about finished the new layout for the blog. I wish the body were a bit wider, so I may still tinker with that, but I'm quite please so far! Even modified my own header.

Now...if I can just figure out a good piece of blogging software for a Mac...

Layout Update

Well, after getting some good shut-eye last night, I came at the layout problem from a different route and am making good progress! Now ... to tinker with the header image later tonight.

New Layout

Well I'm trying out a new layout for the site. I like it better, but for some reason the background image keeps "disappearing" so you don't see the yellow/tan image you should.

I've been fighting with it for nearly an hour and a half and I think maybe it's time to call it quits for the day...

Posting lapse and new laptop

Well, it's been a very long time since I've posted. Lots of things going on between work, home, and rental houses!!

BUT...the cool news is that I have made the leap into the Mac pool. I am the proud owner of a new MacBook Pro laptop and a 24" cinema display! Think of the genealogy work I can do now! I still have some more work to get all my files transferred from the old PC to the new one, but after that, I'm hoping to post much more frequently. Any Mac users out there that have blogging software they'd recommend? I used to use Windows Live Writer, but alas it doesn't work on Mac.

I'm also trying to decide if I should attend parts of the FGS conference being held in Little Rock this September. I probably won't ever have another chance to attend a major genealogy conference so close to me! Any thoughts?
