New Template

So, if you've been reading my blog for a while now, then you know I've kind of tweaked the appearance a little bit.  I really like the new background pic that I added a little while ago.  The one before was really cool too--I love that long black dress coat.  But, I've been keeping a close eye on Blogger's new "dynamic views" and I really like them.  As you can see, I finally caved in and made it the default view for my blog.  I wanted to wait until I could make the text boxes transparent, because I didn't want to obstruct the view of Conrad's beautiful face in the background picture.  So, now that I have discovered how to make the text boxes transparent (or, more accurately, to decrease their opacity), I caved in and changed my template.  I hope you like the new look as much as I do.

Sadly, one of the consequences is that the sidebar, with my blogroll and Facebook link, are all gone.  But, Google assures me that they will have that fixed in the near future, so I look forward to having a sidebar again.

Finally, one of the benefits of this dynamic view is that if you don't like it you can pick a different view from the drop-down list right under the blog title in the top-left corner.  This view is called "Timeline", and there are several others to choose from.  Enjoy.
