returning to normal…somewhat

Well, I finally fixed the old layout to bring it back online. I just wasn’t digging all the orange on the other layout – esp. not with the blue. I guess I’ve never been much of a fan of the color orange anyways.

I’m hoping to finish up gramma’s garage this week since temps will actually be higher than the 30s the next few days. The only bad part is my friend Kurt had to have surgery to fix a torn rotator cuff, so I’m down my muscle. I can get the smaller stuff, but I pulled some shoulder muscles during the apt move and with sleeping on a couch they haven’t healed fully. Without someone with some arm muscles to lift the heavy stuff, I may get a bit stuck. Oh well, guess I’ll have to figure out a way around it.

In addition to reworking this layout (it’s still not completely done), I uploaded a bunch of old photos I found on my hard drive from 2003-2004 to Flickr. There were pix from road trips Rhon and I took to the Jack Daniels distillery in Lynchburg, TN and some trips to the Gulf coast of Florida. A few of my faves:

Madeira Beach : Tampa Florida : June 2004 Indian Rocks Beach : Tampa Florida : June 2004 Jack Daniels Distillery : Lynchburg, TN : October 2003 Jack Daniels Distillery : Lynchburg, TN : October 2003

I also have some new articles posted at and budget travel @ suite101.

Other than dealing with the garage, I might go with my friend Mary down to Devil’s Lake for a photo walk this week. I’ll try not to wait 3-4 years to post those if we do. LOL I also want to see “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” this coming weekend. Besides starring one of my fave actresses (Kristen Bell), the previews I’ve seen look really funny.

I hope to be finished with the garage in the next week and then I’ll hit the road back to Orlando. I’ve never done a 1400 mile road trip by myself, so I am a bit nervous. But I’m going to use the opportunity to check out some areas and get some story material and photos. So if anyone has any tips of things to check out in Southern Illinois, Nashville or Birmingham, Alabama, feel free to leave me a note in comments or send me an email via the site.

Ok, I’m off to bed. If you spot anything wonky with the layout, let me know. Otherwise, I’ll catch y’all later.

    Orange + blue = UF. Always a bad choice.
