Lutz, Florida (high 88, low 70)
Al made it home yesterday with a full load of our “treasures.” He got the Georgia storage building completely emptied. We have officially cut our ties to Georgia! We will work on getting it all put into the storage building here in Tampa later today. He was too tired when he got home yesterday. I wish we didn’t have to have a storage building. It is a monthly expense we could live without. However, we have too many toys and not a big enough motorhome. It’s nice to be able to store things like scuba gear in the shed and only pull it out when we’re somewhere we will need it. We still have too many tools and some home maintenance items that we want to keep since we still do actually have a house here in Tampa.
This morning we are going to take a drive to downtown Tampa. Kevin and Ruth posted some pictures recently of a kayak trip with the Chicago skyline in the background. It reminded me that I have always wanted to do the same in Tampa. The Hillsborough River runs right through downtown Tampa and I should be able to get some nice shots of the Tampa skyline in the background behind the river. It would be lovely at sunset. We’re going there today and scout out the area for a future trip and see where we could launch the Sea Eagles.
So…..thanks everyone for taking the time to comment on my blog changes yesterday. I didn’t realize the background for the comments was the darker green. Evidently that’s the background on the template I chose and there is no changing just the comment section, unless you change the main background. I’ll work on it later.
I could not change the font to white unless I did the same on the posting part. That would have left the main blog with light font on a light background. That would also be hard to read. I need to work on it and will do so when I get a chance. In the meantime….sorry.
Now, as far as the large header picture. I didn’t realize my header pictures loaded slowly. They don’t on my system. I don’t want to eliminate that photo. I like having a “showcase” photo. I guess I could try resizing the photo to help make it load quicker?? I’ll let you know when I make those changes and you can tell me how it works out.
My thinking about the weather widget is:
1. I don’t always think to check for one when I’m reading a certain blog. Also, I often go back on old posts on blogs that have particularly good info and photos. Unfortunately that weather widget is where they are now and what their current temperature is. I might want to check out how their weather was last winter when they were in Arizona, and all I get is their current location and weather. It’s just my preference, and certainly everyone can make their blogs the way the want to. I just find it helpful to have a location and temperature. After all, I am always scouting good places to go!
