On updates and other musings

So the site has a new look. How do you like it so far? There's still some tweaking to do, but it's done for the time being. And it wasn't that I didn't like the old site so much as I wanted something a little leaner and a little cleaner. Frankly the background of the old site made me think of strawberries, and I'm not a huge fan of strawberries. Also, the old color started looking too pink for my tastes, so I wanted to go with something a little deeper and darker.

Also, as a point of interest, we were able to fix the sustain pedal on the piano. Unfortunately, it's so out of tune that playing most anything doesn't sound all that good. The kids, however, are having a good time picking out tunes.

Finally, a quick word on the new stuff. Work is progressing and I'm really enjoying it. I still feel like I'm doing things I've never really dabbled with before, so it's a journey of discovery that I find extremely entertaining and fulfilling. I'm really looking forward to getting this out, but at this time I still have no timeline.
