Sorry for the lack of posting the Happy Hour Party and Dumb Ass Jokes by Kang A Roo today. I have been doing some remodeling to the site.

I was having problems with readers using Mozilla browsers [Susie] not being able to read certain parts of the blog. As I started this blog, I knew absolutely nothing about CSS and a little about HTML that I learned long ago. The language has developed so much since then, I've had to reducate myself.

As I was building the site and tweeking and tweeking and tweeking, I had a lot of garbage code [marquee tags] that I kept in the templates and used comment tags to hide. I also had used some substandard coding practices to achieve the look I desired.

So all last night and part of this morning, I spent going through my Stylesheet and Index Template. I removed all the comment tages, rewrote code to current standards [thank you to Phil], and changed a few things design-wise.

I don't know exactly what fixed the Mozilla problem, as I completed everything before anyone [Susie] read my site today. If it was the recoding or installing an image background under the .blogbody section so that the page background wouldn't show through, but a commentor [Susie] said Yay!!!!!! So, if everyone [Susie] is happy, I'm happy!

Anyway, I'm working on Sunday's regular feature: Tales From The Champagne Room right now so we'll see you tomorrow!

I think the battle is startin'
Excerpt: OK, so I told Kang that Pixy had not come around with another space to use as USURP HQ and that I needed my space back, and that damn marsupial kicked me ... with both feet and knocked me right...

Looks great to me using Mozilla 1.5.

Using Firebird 0.7 on Windows XP. Unfortunately, your right sidebar is appearing under your posts column.

This comments box is expanding beyond the right margin of its column too. (ie. overlapping into the grey background)

Not to poop on your party, because I know you've worked hard on things, but I liked the other background a bit better. The gray is a good neutral, but chilly.
I wonder if there's a workable (i.e. nonintrusive) background out there that looks like champagne bubbles?
Or a nice beer color?

As Susie would say "kvetch, kvetch, kvetch!"

LeeAnn [with 2 e's] which background are you talking about? The wheat colored, beer bottles, or hippy Homer? What I'll probably end up doing is making the main background black crinkly paper, move this background into the outside of the post boxes. That looks really tough, but I wanted to make sure that it wouldn't bleed through as the others were doing for some reason.

LightandDark: Are you viewing full screen? My comments boxes are all lined up and there is no funky code in the ss or comments template, but I'll check again for a comment tag.

Now that the boxes show up, you can put the beer bottles back! They were way cool and VERY appropriate!!!!

Okay, I agree with Light and Dark. Using Mozilla 1.5, your sidebar is still under all the posts.
