After my frustration on changing my template last Sunday, I managed to edit a "classic" blogger template to nearly the exact template I was going for under the new blogger layouts. I'm using the 'rounders' template with an extra sidebar added. The one I found had a side bar on the left and right. I modified them both to the right and did my customization I preferred. I still need to do some minor tweaking, but you shouldn't notice much if at all behind the scenes.
I felt with the new layout party, it was only fitting to post a fireworks photo I took last summer at the Minnesota State Fair. I was using my knee as a tripod for the shot. There is a slight shake, but my knee tripod turned out okay.
I can't get the Kool and the Gang song out of my head....everyone around the world, come on....it's a celebration....celebrate good times....come on! Woo Hoo!
