FYI -- I'm playing with the template. Sorry for any inconvenience.
UPDATE: I'm done fiddling with the template (for now).
I ended up using a template called MistyLook from blogcrowds.com. Aside from some trouble getting my Haloscan comments to work, it was easy to install.
I really like the picture in the header. Plus, I will be able to change the image from time to time.
I also like having tabs at the top, which I can update from time to time.
What do you think of the new look? Does it load OK on other browsers?
